Algarve vs Cote Basque mid-late August

Postby lorcar » Mon Jul 29, 2019 8:42 am

Hi
I will be travelling solo with my 5yo princess. So, single dad.
Looking for something that would allow us to have fun, minimize the stress for logistics, and introduce my kid to surfing.
I was interested in Algarve, but people suggested Cote Basque instead, since water in Algarve is colder.
Would you agree?
what would you recommend, in general?
any tip is highly appreciated.
thanks in advance

Are you in a van or camping?

Basque coast is amazing and there's a mix of everything. Campsite at Zarautz is good value, beach is pretty consistent and there's loads to do with a little one is San Sebastian if the weather is a bit hit and miss.

neither, being with a kid I'd prefer something like hotel or where they provide basic services like breakfast etc
