FAQS ABOUT FAMILY HOLIDAYS TO TENERIFE
Tenerife is a terrific destination for family holidays, jam-packed with things to see and do to suit all ages and interests. Beach babes and thrill-seekers will find the southern part of the island more to their liking with its golden shores, copious water sports, whale-watching boat trips and fun attractions like the brilliant Siam Park water park. Costa Adeje and Los Cristianos make great bases for families to enjoy the region. However, Tenerife is super-easy to get around, so excursions to explore the remote cave-house villages, surreal dragon trees and colour-filled towns of the north are manageable day trips.
Absolutely. Home to some of Europe’s best family hotels and resorts, Tenerife is ideal for both relaxing escapes (while the little ones are entertained in kids’ clubs) and activity-packed adventures. Aside from its beaches, the year-round warm weather is one of the main reasons why this Canary Island has become a firm family favourite. Those with younger children can make the most of breaks here outside of the school holidays, enjoying cheaper flights, quieter beaches and guaranteed sunny days. Those with older children will find the island has oodles of activities to entertain even the most hard-to-please tweens or teens.
You can go from building sandcastles on golden shores and watching dolphins splash about in waves to walking through moonscapes and staring at faraway galaxies in dark skies on Tenerife family holidays. The island’s diverse coastline is dotted with safe, sandy beaches and lapped by glittering waters where endless activities await. IDILIQ hotels in Tenerife are close to water parks, golf courses and fuss-free places to eat, while inland, the Teide National Park beckons for mind-blowing adventures around its volcanic landscapes. There are some excellent Tenerife resorts for families where adults can unwind and kids be unleashed.
Located just off the west coast of Africa in the Atlantic, the Canary Islands enjoy a subtropical climate with virtually guaranteed sunshine all year. This makes Tenerife’s family-friendly hotels and sun-kissed beaches a top choice for holidays year-round. July and August are when the island is at its busiest and hottest. The shoulder-season months of March, April, May, October and November are a great time to visit with cheaper flights and less crowds. But beach holidays are on the agenda in winter too, with an average temperature of 22 °C from December to February and six hours of sunshine a day.
The largest island in the archipelago, Tenerife is renowned for its beaches, from sun-dappled golden shores to cliff-backed black volcanic coves. The most popular soft-sand stretches are found in the southwest around Costa Adeje, Playa de Las Americas and Los Cristianos. With fine sands, blue waters and chiringuitos (beach bars), Playa del Duque, Playa Las Vistas and Playa del Camisón are a few gems. The wide, unspoilt stretch of Playa de la Tejita in the south is fab for water sports. To the north, the beaches are generally wilder and more remote, making them less suitable for children.
