Tenerife enjoyed an incredible 6.18 million visitors in 2017- it was by far the most popular of all the Canary Islands and it’s easy to see why!
The island caters for holiday-goers of all ages, making it the perfect destination for families. If you’re looking for a spot to take your little ones this summer, here’s three reasons why you should put Tenerife at the top of your list:
- Sun, Sea and Sand
Many regard the beaches in Tenerife as some of the best that Spain has to offer. There’s plenty of them to choose from and three of the most popular family-friendly ones are Playa del Duque, Playa de los Cristianos and Playa Puerto Colón.
Another huge plus is that Tenerife enjoys glorious weather all year round. That means you can enjoy a swim in the ocean and a spot of sunbathing even in December and January and the weather gets even hotter when it comes towards May, June and July!
- Kid-Friendly Activities
The beaches of Tenerife are all great spots for exploration and if the kids fancy a break from building sandcastles, there’s also playgrounds, shops and water sports (like diving and jet skiing) to entertain them.
However, if you want to try something a little bit different there’s also the opportunity for exciting activities like star gazing and whale watching, which is sure to keep the kids of any age happy!
The entire island is an incredibly family-friendly destination. There’s even resorts that cater directly for kids, like Green Garden Resort which has tropical gardens, sparkling blue pools and toy zones (adorably named ‘Tots Boulevard’) that are all included in the price of the stay.
- Delicious Cuisine
Sampling the local cuisine is one of the best things about going away on holiday. However, for families with young children, fussy eating habits can make this a potential problem.
Tenerife is famed for its dishes of the freshest seafood, wild meats and plantain, and the island even boasts two Michelin-starred restaurants!
However, you’re sure to find meals that your children will love too! There’s plenty of tapas on offer and your kids can sample mouth-watering dishes like papas arrugadas with mojo (a Canary Island specialty) and churros de pescado (the local version of battered fish).
For guaranteed sun, access to family-friendly facilities and delicious food, Tenerife ticks all the boxes. No wonder it’s so popular with tourists all around the world! If you’re stuck for ideas on your next summer holiday spot, this island is sure to have something for every single member of the family.
