Travel Forums Europe Family trip to South Spain

Hi,

I am planning a family trip to south Spain at the Sea (central Poland -> Sth Spain). A pack includes 5 adult + 5 mths child. One person drives the wheelchair. I have found plenty of apartments, houses etc. which are available at the right time (end of May / beginning of June). I would like to ask
what region would you suggest? Beaches near France or should we go further south? Please consider facilities for handicap (in the cities, beaches).

Mainly we plan to lie at the pools, but it would be nice to take a day long trip nearby. I have already been to Barcelona and would be happy to see something different.

Appreciate any advices...

Maybe Lloret de Mar? It has two good beaches, lots of eating places and shops, trips to a number of places available as tours or you can do them yourself along the coast or to Girona, Andorra, Montserrat, etc and even back to Barcelona. The main part of town is quite flat though there are some inclines about which are not too bad for wheelchairs. You can have an electric hire wheelchair delivered to your accommodation:

If you fancy a night out, Tossa de Mar several miles north has a large choice of restaurants by the beach. For reasonably priced good accommodation you could try:

If you don't mind travelling further down south, I would recommend Benidorm that time of year (before the holiday crowds appear) which is probably better. People go back there year after year. An electric wheelchair hire place opposite the in town Sunday market (there is another Sunday market a bus ride away). Again, two nice beaches and fairly flat.
