The Lagos Zoo, Slide & Splash or Parque Aventura, for children there’s much to discover in the Algarve. Especially during school holidays, Monte Rosa is the ideal location for a families.
Playground Monte Rosa
There are plenty of activities for children in the Algarve. But also while at Monte Rosa our youngest guests will not be bored. Kids can explore the surroundings, for example to build huts. There’s a dressing-up box and there are many games and books. Kids can pet the cats, feed the chickens and pick up fresh eggs from the coop. This is often a new experience for children from the city! They can also help out in the organic vegetable garden. Of course many hours are spent in the swimming pool, on the little playground and on the football field.
The Lagos Zoo is within walking distance of Monte Rosa. It’s a beautiful well-kept park with mainly small animals, some 140 different species of monkeys, birds, reptiles and fish. Sometimes it’s possible to help feed the animals (additional charge). From April to September ‘Boulders Beach’ is open for families to swim and relax. Children can play in the water next to the African Penguins! The entrance for children is €14, adults pay €18.
