- Albania Family holidays
Albania might not be the obvious place to take the family on a holiday, but with coastlines on the Ionian Sea and on the Adriatic Sea too, it's a beach holiday paradise that has been overlooked for too long. Beat the crowds by booking cheap family holidays in Albania, and make the most of this well-kept secret before it catches the attention of British holidaymakers en masse - there are already some great value family holidays to choose from, with activities and entertainment that will keep your kids busy for the duration of your stay.
A break on the Albanian Riviera
The Adriatic and Ionian coastlines of the country are referred to as the Albanian Riviera, and it's a well-deserved name, with some really fantastic stretches of sand to relax on, or to play on with your children. You might have been closer to this part of Albania than you realise, if you've ever taken your family to nearby Corfu, and the conditions are quite similar as the coastal waters stem from the same sources and the warm, dry climate offers the same clear blue skies on a daily basis.
Steeped in history
Use the opportunity to teach your children some geography and some history as they visit a new part of the world. For instance, the word 'Albanoi' from which the present-day name of Albania is derived has been found written down in documents dating back as far as 1080. The area in general was inhabited at least as early as the 4th century BC. It's a great chance to get your children thinking about the past, and about the generations of holidaymakers and local residents before them who might have built a sandcastle or written their name at the water's edge.
Take it easy on family holidays in Albania
Family holidays in Albania are a break for mum and dad as well as for the kids, so make the most of any in-resort kids' clubs and other such entertainment. Your little ones will love the activities to avoid them becoming bored throughout the day, and you'll get them out of your hair for a few precious hours. Travel full board or all-inclusive and your meals will all be covered too, or of course you can go self-catering or room-only if you want the option of buying your own meals and eating out at local restaurants to sample the local cuisine.
Why Albania is so great for families
With the beautiful Ionian and Adriatic Seas right on the doorstep, and without the huge crowds of some of Europe's more popular and established resorts, Albania is becoming a top family-friendly destination. The little ones will enjoy paddling in the clean and safe waters, and big kids will love the beach too. Albania family holidays offer you the chance to do something a little different, visiting a part of the world that's just being discovered by other holidaymakers. So why not take the chance to create an unforgettable family holiday experience?
