The best places to take your children have been unveiled at the World Travel Awards

The top resorts and locations for family travel have been recognised at the World Travel Awards with success for Greece, Portugal and the UK.

The Algarve in Portugal has won Europe’s Leading Beach Destination for the sixth time.

And the top family resort in Europe has been named as Sani Resort in Greece.

Mriya Resort and Spa in Crimea has won the luxury family resort title.

The top theme park in Europe was Legoland Windsor. Walt Disney World in Florida was named best theme park in North America.

João Fernandes, president of Algarve Tourism Bureau, said it was an historic win for the area in the best beach category.

He said: “We are delighted to win the award for the sixth time, and to make history in this way.

“The Algarve is blessed with a wide variety of beaches from small secluded bays to sweeping expanses of white sand.

“The calmer beaches are perfect for younger children who love to pick clams in the wet sand, or play in the small waves, whilst older children adore all the watersports on offer such as surfing and bodyboards.
