Don’t Limit Yourself: Destinations for the Whole Family

Article posted on 06 June 2019

Have you always thought of Cancun as party central or the Algarve as somewhere best suited to canoodling couples? At Club Med, we take great care to choose destinations that offer something for the whole family. So, let’s ditch the preconceptions and explore the family-friendly side to some of our resorts.

Here are four great destinations to consider for your next family holiday.


Nestled between the Taurus mountains and the stunning turquoise coast, our Palmiye resort is well known for exciting watersports, beautiful lush gardens and amazing beach activities.
The beaches close to the resort also provide the perfect setting for our nature activities. Younger guests love our discovery trips where they can learn about the crabs, seahorses and starfish that populate the waters here. We’ll also teach them all about the migratory odyssey of the Caouanne sea turtles, the town’s animal emblem, who lay their eggs on the beach before embarking on their ocean voyage. Then, later in the evening, our beach transforms into an outdoor cinema ready for an on-the-sand movie night.

The French Alps

Les Arcs Panorama, our snow sports mecca in the French Alps, is a big draw for skiers who love a challenging slope during the day and a lively apres ski scene at night. But did you know that the resort is also a haven for families?
We’ve got plenty to keep little ones on piste and fully engaged, but teenagers in particular will love our Club Med Passworld. This dedicated snow area is off-limits to parents, complete with chill out zones where teens can trade tips and gossip after a day’s snowboarding fun. Indoors and out of the cold, teens can also enjoy our creative facilities, where they can try their hand at graffiti art, video-making and music production.

There’s much more to Cancun than Spring Break and poolside margaritas. In fact, there’s a whole host of family fun to enjoy.
The Hummer Jungle Tour combines visits to a petting zoo, roving around ancient Mayan ruins, diving in cenotes and flying along hair-raising zip lines. You can also swim with dolphins or run amok in the jungle canopy.
If you prefer something a little more sedate, visit the excellent Cancun Interactive Aquarium and delve into the deep on a sub-aquatic adventure in the Atlantis Submarine. Take a look at our Cancun resort and get inspired.

The Algarve

If this is your first holiday as a family, then look no further than Club Med Da Balaia in the Algarve. Set on a quiet stretch of stunning coastline, with deep red cliffs and white sandy beaches, few resorts cater as well for families with babies and toddlers as this one. Take advantage of our dedicated baby restaurant and round the clock childcare, with a special schedule of fun activities designed to suit the interests and sleeping patterns of babies from four months and up. Meanwhile, Petit Club Med will keep toddlers busy with puppet shows, dressing up, outdoor walks, games and play in our herbarium.
