Activities to do with children in Tenerife
Below, we present you with different options from north to south. From natural attractions to the best water parks. Discover the wonders of Tenerife and offer your children a wonderful day out.
Dolphin and Whale Watching
If there’s one thing we know about children, it’s that they marvel at everything. With a boat charter in Tenerife to the Cliffs of Los Gigantes they will be able to see whales and dolphins in their natural habitat.
Waiting for the arrival of the cetaceans and celebrating their appearance is great fun. Children jump and scream with joy when the first dolphin appears. In some specific places we can see whales and other marine animals.
Beaches of Tenerife
Children love the beach and in Tenerife we have many beaches with different characteristics.
Take them to play in the sand and go for walks. Pack their swimming costume so they can play in the waves and be happy in the water.
We recommend Fañabé beach, Playa Jardín and Los Cristianos for their calm waves and availability of services.
Siam Park in Costa Adeje
In the south of Tenerife you will find the most fun theme park in Europe. It has fabulous rides for everyone.
Although the park offers extreme rides, amazing slides and deep pools, there are also attractions for children. You’ll find safe and shallow rides for the little ones to enjoy.
Take the kids to Jungle Park Zoo to interact with over 500 animals.
You’ll find meerkats, lions, jaguars, crocodiles and more. Being in Jungle Park is like being in the middle of the jungle because they will walk through nature trails, waterfalls, caves and hanging bridges.
Here there is a great falcon and eagle show that children will enjoy to the fullest.
Aqualand Water Park
At this water park you’ll find dolphin shows that attract tourists from far and wide.
In addition to rides for the whole family, there are themed rides especially for the little ones.
In the north of Tenerife you will find Loro Parque with fabulous facilities for children to spend time with the animals.
More than a hundred species of animals live there and together with the park’s flora, they form a beautiful and very attractive natural environment for children.
The parrots are the stars of the park, but you will also find dolphins, orcas, lions, gorillas, red pandas and many more.
Very close to Los Cristianos you’ll find Monkey Park, home to many monkeys. Take the kids to have fun and play with the apes.
They can take pictures with these cute animals and give them fruit to eat. The children will be happy to share with these animals in their natural habitat and in complete freedom.
Teide cable car
The cable car offers them the opportunity to feel like they are in the air. Children will feel like they are flying through the air. Take them to explore the volcanic landscape of the park. Your children will be so happy to get so high that they won’t stop talking about it.
Tenerife has the advantage of a privileged climate all year round. You will be able to enjoy different activities to do with children in Tenerife. Most of the year we have sunshine and good weather. Come at any time of the year and you will always find the parks open and the beaches shining under the radiant sun.
