Be aware that in July and August, the town and<br />

its beaches are extremely busy.<br />

In case you’re not aware, Spain in general, is a<br />

very family friendly destination. Like other<br />

Mediterranean countries, the locals generally<br />

dote on children, and instead of feeling<br />

awkward in some restaurants, as can happen<br />

back in colder climes, you should get a warm<br />

welcome in most establishments for your<br />

younger family members.<br />

In the <strong>Peñiscola</strong> Castle Gardens, there are birds<br />

of prey shows each day<br />

during the season. The setting is stunning and<br />

the bird species include both birds of preys<br />

along with different types of owls.<br />

During the show members of the audience are<br />

allowed take part, obviously instructed by the<br />

bird handler. He or she goes to a different part<br />

of the grounds, and then gets the bird to fly<br />

down to the other person who is wearing one of<br />

the special gloves. The bird of prey lands on the<br />

However it is totally buzzing in the summertime,<br />

and the water is a lovely temperature. The slope<br />

person's hand.<br />

is very gradual as you wander into the sea, just<br />

under the majestic castle – so you can walk out<br />

for quite a while before you need to get into a<br />

bit of swimming.<br />

Of course the shallow, calm waters in such a<br />

unique and stunning setting make it a suitable<br />

destination for families.<br />
