It is easy to see why so many families choose to holiday in the Algarve.
This is according to Chrissie Lewandowski, co-founder of SingleWithKids.co.uk, who pointed to the stunning coastline and bustling cobbled towns as evidence of its popularity.
The variety of places to visit is key to enticing mums and dads to come to this part of Portugal, she added.
Whether it is enjoying a relaxing day in a sleepy fishing village, or heading to some of the bigger locations such as Albufeira, Ms Lewandowski stated there really is something for everyone.
The expert also said the breeze that comes from the Atlantic means the weather is perfect for a kids holiday, as it never becomes too hot.
"With its well-developed tourist industry, Portugal also makes for an easy holiday – the hotels are family-friendly and there's a vast array of excursions for those wanting to explore or take part in activities," she stated.
Swimming with dolphins is among the most popular day trips on offer in the Algarve.
