The key to a great holiday is keeping everyone happy. You work hard all year to make this happen so it’s important that everyone is catered for, and that includes the kids. If you fancy a fun day out in the city from your Barcelona accommodation which includes all the family, take a look at these options.

Aquarium – Port Vell Barcelona

This fabulous aquarium is the largest in Europe. As you walk through the transparent tunnel you will be in awe of the sharks, stingrays, and hordes of colourful tropical fish that swim above your head and all around you. There is plenty to educate and entertain both adults and children alike.



Barceloneta Beach

With water sports, games, free Wi-Fi, access plus a plethora of restaurants, cafes, and ice cream kiosks, there is something here to entertain everyone in the family all day long.

Cosmo Caixa Science Museum

If you have stepped outside your family villa in Barcelona and the weather is a little cloudy or overcast, or you simply want an escape from the sun for a day, visit the CosmoCaixa Science Museum. The building houses a multitude of exhibitions and interactive displays which tell the fascinating stories of science, space, and nature.



Port Aventura

This amusement park is slightly outside of Barcelona, but it’s a theme park of Disney proportions in Spain. A train from Barcelona takes you close to the theme park, or it takes around an hour and 20 minutes to drive there. Port Aventura is for thrill seekers, young and old, and is home to the tallest and fastest white knuckle roller coaster in Europe!

Whether your family days out include education or fun fairground rides or even a bit of both in some cases, this is one area of Spain where you will always find lots of family activities to participate in from the moment you step out of your villa in Spain.
