A family trip to Tenerife could mean introducing your children to marine species such as dolphins and whales that live freely just off the coast of the island. Authorised excursions, available throughout the year, approach the animals in a respectful manner. Indeed, the social responsibility of the tour operators can serve as an example for children of the awareness all of us have to show to the wider environment.

The Canary Islands are famous for clear skies. In Tenerife, when the sun goes down the sky comes to life with millions of stars. So, on the island, night time doesn’t signal the end of the fun. Gazing up to the heavens each night of a holiday in Tenerife is enough to turn a child into a lifelong enthusiast for the night sky. The stars are so clear on the island that they inspire dreams to become astronauts, astronomers, and UFO hunters. In Tenerife there are many special places which have particularly good night time views. The Llano de Ucanca viewpoint and the Guajara mountain are great spots that are worth mentioning specifically. Also, the Teide Observatory offers visitors the chance of guided tours which include interesting discussions about the work of scientists.

A beach day with a family is great because it allows the children to let off some steam. The children can run around on the sand, while the parents settle themselves on a beach towel. There are countless beaches in Tenerife that offer unforgettable ocean experiences (such as the ten recommended here). Some spots are particularly good with families. A Spanish blog Sapos y Princesas which specialises in parenting recommends beaches which have good facilities and are close to urban areas. Great places like these include Las Teresitas, El Camisón, Playa Jardín, and La Arena. Another Spanish blog called Pequeviajes suggests visiting natural swimming pools in Tenerife such as Bajamar. The blog also indicates that Siam Park, a water activity centre, could be fun with a family.

Besides its coastline, Tenerife is also famous for the extraordinary natural wealth in the interior of the island. Bosque Encantado woods, for example, contains flat walking paths lined with huge ferns and incredible plant life which creates a magical atmosphere. (Visitors should note that access to the Bosque Encantado requires prior authorisation from the local government, the Cabildo de Tenerife.). Another great experience in Tenerife involves caves. At the Cueva del Viento (Cave of the Wind) visitors can put on a helmet and shine a torch around the inside of a volcano. The Forestal Park is another popular place with families. This zipline park, hidden in the mountains of La Esperanza, suitable for five-year-olds and up, offers adrenaline filled hours of fun.

Variation is very important to keep children entertained, and cultural excursions can add an important element of change to an itinerary. Tenerife is endowed with a number of top-class art facilities. Places such as the Tenerife Space of the Arts, the MUNA, the Museum of Nature and Archaeology, and the Museum of Science and the Cosmos are great venues which offer plenty to interest kids. Holidays offer a real opportunity to turn meal times into an event. Trip Advisor is a respected platform which will help you find restaurants in Tenerife that have been recommended by families with children.
