It's no secret that the Canary Islands are a popular spot for families looking to take the kids away somewhere sunny and fun. But which one should you go for? With seven to choose from, it can be tricky. As Tenerife is the largest island, let's take a look at it in more detail and see what kinds of things you and the kids could be getting up to once you’ve taken that all important flight out!
1. Loro Parque in Puerto de la Cruz
Talk to the world's largest collection of parrots at the island's zoo! You can also see the gorillas, the snakes and tropical fish. There are plenty of cafes to pick up a bite to eat and lots of green to sit down on too.
2. Teide National Park
If your kids are natural explorers, a trip to Teide National Park will keep them happy all day. Take a trip up Spain's highest mountain in a cable car and discover the weird but wonderful volcanic terrain on this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
3. Siam Park
The whole family can make a splash at this mega fun water park. You can chill by the pool side, take a refreshing dip or get your adrenaline pumping on a water slide — there’s something for all ages and adventure ratings.
4. Beach time
With so many action packed beaches available to you — it would be rude not to make the most of them. Temperatures stay high throughout the whole year, and you can get on a jet ski, go snorkelling or simply sunbathe on the sand. You can even do a bit of everything!
5. Puerto De La Cruz
This is the old town, complete with cobbled streets, old charm culture and lots of traditional cuisine eateries. Take a walk round to get a real feel for local life and gorge on all the fresh seafood that's on offer.
With so many attractions and natural beauty on offer, it should hardly come as a surprise that Tenerife is so popular with families. Most places offer something for all levels and ages, so the little ones can have just and much fun as their teen siblings. And the parents, of course.
