Tenerife is the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands and one of the most family-friendly beach destinations, all within a few hours flying distance of the UK. Located in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Morocco, this exotic isle boasts almost endless sunshine and mild temperatures year round. Renowned as an idyllic escape for couples, Tenerife also represents a perfect place to take the entire family on holiday, because of its stellar line-up of events and activities. With so many exciting things to see and do in Tenerife, it’s virtually certain that every member of the family will leave happy.
When you’re ready to experience some of this area’s incredible family-friendly sights and attractions, you can rest assured that CLC World offers some of the best family resorts in Tenerife. Featuring sumptuous accommodation, world-class amenities, an impressive array of dining options and supremely fun-filled and well-supervised teen and kids’ clubs, all of our resorts in Tenerife, such as the CLC Monterey Royale, provide an excellent base for exploring the island. Here are just a few of the amazing things that your family can discover on your next trip to Tenerife.
The most expansive and popular water park in Tenerife, Thai-themed Siam Park’s multitude of offerings provide something to appeal to just about every age and satisfy virtually every taste.
Teenagers (and those with active spirits and adventurous souls) can thrill to a dazzling selection of flumes, slides and other heart-pumping rides. You can even grab a board and try your hand at surfing in the water theme park’s massive wave pool.
Children, as well as those in search of a more laid-back vibe, can float along meandering rivers or enjoy more mellow slides — all closely monitored by highly trained lifeguards. Even young kids, and babies, can get in on the action at Siam Park, with each age group having its own specifically designed zones with gentle rides where little ones can splash about to their hearts’ content and have a blast in safety.
Not to be left out, non-swimmers can choose to shop in the floating Thai market, sunbathe with a cool drink on the sandy beach or take a long walk through Siam Park’s luxuriant tropical gardens.
Mount Teide National Park
One of the most well-known national parks on the entire planet, it’s no wonder that Tenerife’s Mount Teide has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Highlighted by a volcanic peak that soars a breathtaking 3,718 metres above sea level (making it the third highest volcano on the globe), Mount Teide National Park reveals once-in-a-lifetime sights that no-one in your family is likely ever to forget.
Whether you choose to take advantage of a tour arranged from a CLC World resort, or prefer to visit Mount Teide on your own – hours of excitement await in this National Park, which begins 2,000 metres above the sea. Marvel at moonscapes created by streams of molten lava. Hike trails that cut through a wild landscape filled with hundreds of species of flowers, birds, insects and other indigenous flora and fauna. Take in awe-inspiring views of the majestic scenery, as the park’s cable car rapidly whisks you up the mountain.
A ride onboard the Sub Fun Cinco submarine promises unforgettable memories for the entire family. When you head out on a Submarine Safari, you’ll be embarking on a magical journey to an undersea universe that few ever get to glimpse.
Take your front-row seat, as your submersible sinks beneath the blue surface of the Atlantic Ocean. Feast your eyes on a colourful parade of fish and sea life in every shape and size, as they swim past the large picture windows. Share a moment that the entire family can treasure forever, as a diver guides a huge stingray right up to the vessel’s windows, so close that you can easily make out every detail of this striking marine creature. Delight in every second that you spend on your family submarine excursion beneath the waves.
