Any parent will know that travelling with kids is very different to vacationing when you were young, free and responsibility-free. When little ones come along, itineraries change and days get based around them, but that shouldn’t mean a summer holiday can’t be thoroughly enjoyed. The trick is to book holidays to suit you but plan activities to suit them. Tenerife is a superb destination choice for this way of thinking, because there’s something for everyone. From exploring the Teide National Park to lounging on the beach, you can guarantee that every member of your family, whatever their age, will have a blast.
If you want to spend a day or two treating your little ones to a day out for them, there are plenty of attractions on the island that would be perfect for that, including:
Opened in 2008, Siam Park can be found in the south of the island and a great day for the entire family. Whether you’re heading there with children or you’re just young at heart, this Thailand-themed waterpark includes white knuckle thrills and laidback spills that will satisfy every water baby.
For the young ones, a mini waterpark including smaller slides and water jets will keep them happy for hours while the adrenaline junkies will feel right at home riding the Dragon, Kinnaree and the Tower of Power.
Home to a veritable menagerie, Loro Parque continues to be incredibly popular with locals and tourists alike. Home to hundreds of parrots as well as chimpanzees, alligators and a gorilla enclosure, it’s a must-visit if you’re a wildlife lover.
Dolphin, Orca and sea lion shows can be seen every day throughout the summer season, while the largest penguinarium in the world can also be found within the park.
There’s nothing better than seeing dolphins and whales in their natural habitat and in the warm waters surrounding Tenerife, you can do just that!
Whether you decide to enjoy an excursion or two or your kids are happy digging for treasure on the beach, a summer vacation in Tenerife is a must, this summer.
