Children of all ages will enjoy a trip to the Algar Waterfalls, a spot of immense natural beauty, where mighty waterfalls cascade onto rocks and natural water pools.
The Algar Waterfalls can be found in the incredibly picturesque Les Fonts de l’Agar Nature Reserve.
Families can splash about and have fun in the clear water of the natural pools, before going on to explore the paths that wind their way through the nature reserve, which is an oasis for lush Mediterranean flora and fauna.
Spend a day at Rio Safari Park, Elche
What could be a better way to spend the day on a family holiday than meandering around a fabulous zoo?
Rio Safari Park is home to hundreds of animals from around the world, including Bengal tigers, giraffes, apes, jaguar, orangutan, African lions, white-handed gibbon, and much more.
This popular zoo aims to provide habitats and ecosystems which help conserve species and prevent extinction. The zoo puts on different education and conservation programs to raise awareness of the importance of animal conservation.
