    Somewhere by the beach,with a nearby waterpark and theme park?
    Somewhere not popular with ISIS or northern Brits?

      This was about 16 years ago, but I always remember a great holiday with my parents and a mate as a late teenager to Salou in Spain.

      PortAventura
      Water park was near by
      On the coast
      Near enough to go see 'proper' bits of Spain but benefit of a decent resort.

      May have changed since then but probably the best holiday I had in Europe as a kid
      900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

      Went there 2 years ago.Probably the best family destination in Spain as it has it all.
      PortAventura the second largest theme park in Europe plus from last year also Ferrari World.
      Two water parks.Barcelona an hour away.
      Airport just a few minutes away.
      Great promenade and busy town centre.
      O and plus a great packed sandy beach.

      However that area seems to be popular with ISIS given they were in Cambrills last
      year which is around 2 miles away.

      Being a ‘northern Brit’ myself I should probably be offended by your criteria, but if I’m honest, northern brits are half the reason I’ve spent 25 yrs of my adult life on the south coast.

      Center Parcs in France are fantastic. Cheaper than UK but still expensive enough to keep the riffraff out. Loads to do wet & dry and some are well within range of beaches. Combine a week at CP with a week in the Alps (best theme park in Europe), Morzine maybe (hot in summer with a huge public lido), with glacial lakes to swim in, alpine roller coaster, and mountain bike trails for all levels. Perfect family holiday!

      Is it your first visit? Fantastic place. Happy to provide any pointers - it's a place where planning ahead of time really does pay dividends.

      How old are the kids?
      I listen to bands that don't even exist yet.
