Activities to do with children in Tenerife

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.

Royal Delfin Tenerife Catamaran Tour with Transport (7)

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.

Jungle Park

Jungle Park Tenerife (8)

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.

Loro Parque

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.

Monkey Park

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.

I hired the atlanca boat as a surprise for my husbands 40th birthday and it was honestly the best day and lots of fun. Easy to book, when we arrived Patrick did the paperwork and explained everything then Fran gave us all the safety information on how to ride the boat. Everything was provided and additional special touches were much appreciated. They were both great, really friendly and put us at ease. We had 3 hours booked and we got the full time, everything excellent. Highly recommended. Thank you

Alquilamos una excursión para ver cetáceos y dar un paseo de 3h. En general la experiencia estuvo bien. Toda la gestión de reserva fue fácil y el trato con Bananapalmbay fue un gusto.
Al llegar al barco tuvimos alguna confusión con lo acordado, pero tras comunicarse la empresa del barco con Bananapalmbay se solucionó y pudimos disfrutar del viaje. Además vimos ballenas piloto.

My partner and I rented a boat for 4 hours from Jan Daniel and we had the best day! By far our favourite experience of our whole holiday. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking to rent a boat to do your own exploring along the southern coast of Tenerife. 5* experience!

Ich habe mit dieser Gesellschaft 2 tolle Touren gemacht. Die Teide Nationalpark Tour mit Masca, war klasse, sowohl Guide als auch Busfahrer waren toll. Viel information und gute Betreuung. Ein unvergesslicher Tag. 🥰 Die 2. Tour war Oberklasse, ich bin mit Shogun zur Wahlbeobachtung rausgefahren und wir haben eine ganze Familie Pilotwale gesehen, diese wunderbaren Wesen sind recht neugierig und kamen auch auf das Boot zu. Ich habe Shogun vorgezogen, weil mir die übervollen Katamarane nicht so gefallen. Gute Wahl. Die ganze Fahrt ist wunderbar, man fährt bis Los Gigantes und in der Bucht gibt es eine köstliche Mahlzeit. Es ist sehr beeindruckend, dort zu ankern. Habe die Fahrt sehr genossen.......ich liebe das Meer sehr.🥰

What a fantastic day on our own private yacht. We went for the Astondoa 46 and the service was amazing. We saw sea turtles, dolphins and whales. Quick stop by a beach for a snorkel with the fishes and then back to drinking cava! Jan was great with the communication and made everything stress free. 100% would recommend to anyone planning something a little bit special.
