With the half-term holidays approaching fast, Skyscanner, highlights some bargain hotspots which are ideal for family fun.
Malta – this small Mediterranean Island is fast becoming a popular spot with families due to its child friendly attitude, year-round good weather and good value. Malta’s excellent beaches are easily accessible and safe for children, and most also offer dinghies and snorkelling gear for hire allowing families to discover the underwater world.
You can even swim with dolphins at The Mediterraneo Marine Park at Bahar ic-Caghaq, or just enjoy swimming with humans at the Splash and Fun water park. Find cheap flights to Malta
Spain – five Spanish holiday towns ranked in the Top 10 most popular foreign destinations for 2009 holidays in Skyscanner’s recent study, and for very good reason! Spain’s Costas offer dozens of family friendly beach towns, ideal for keeping the kids happy with water sports, plus great food and wine for mum and dad too, and Spain continues to offer great value holidays despite being in the Eurozone.

Portugal – the warm sunny weather combined with the friendliness of the Portuguese people ensures that Portugal is a favourite with British families. The Algarve is probably Portugal’s most popular region for holiday goers, offering gorgeous beaches, warm water and glorious sunshine year-round plus a good mix of family friendly campsites, hotels and villas, all at very reasonable prices.

Scotland – Edinburgh is packed full of family attractions: Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh Zoo, Ghost Tours, or Deep Sea World. For an active family break, head to the highlands; Cairngorm Mountain near Aviemore offers skiing, snowboarding and sledging but check the snow report before you go as conditions can vary wildly.

Tunisia – maybe not the first beach destination to come to mind, but Port El Kantaout, Tunisia’s most popular holiday resort has everything you’d expect from a established resort: fine beaches, shops, bars, cafés and restaurants, at lower prices than many more well known beach spots.
Families can take a ride on the glass bottomed boats, try sailing, or go scuba diving and snorkelling. Other activities include horse riding, tennis, golf and quad biking – so a great mix of outdoor fun, sun and exotic culture for all the family. Find cheap flights to Tunisia
