Los Cristianos in Tenerife could be the answer to family holiday woes thanks to the vast array of activities it offers. From dolphin watching to meeting monkeys and paddle boarding, there really is something for every member of the family.
Make New Friends At The Monkey Park
For an up close and personal monkey encounter, head over to the Monkey Park just outside Los Cristianos. It’s a small zoo mainly featuring small primates and birds but what gives this attraction such great reviews is its walk-through enclosures which children will love.
Act Like A Pro With Mini Golf Overlooking The Sea
Mini golf is perfect for mini people – it’s all those whimsical surroundings, and challenges that they have an (almost) equal chance of winning at. Situated on the coastline, with views out over the seafront, this golf course will keep parents amused too.
Be Bold And Go Sea Kayaking
Kayaking and canoeing have become a popular pastime in Tenerife, and there are guided excursions down the coast on a daily basis. Doing a water sport together as a family is exhilarating enough to keep you from getting bored, but it also gives you the chance to have a chat. Highlights of kayaking in Tenerife include viewing the gorgeous hills of Masca from the sea.
Make Your Dreams A Reality With A Whale And Dolphin Watching Tour
Every child dreams of swimming with dolphins and in Tenerife this could be a possibility! The warm and sunny climes of this island mean that dolphins and pilot whales flock to the area and this is definitely something to be taken advantage of! There are boat trips from across the island, including some departing from Los Cristianos itself.
Unleash Your Inner Child At Go Karting
Go Karting is always loved by kids of all ages, but with two levels of tracks, Karting Club Tenerife can offer thrills for parents too. There’s a 250-metre track solely designed for kids, meaning that even little ones can get behind the wheel in this arena. The adult track is a whopping 1,200 metres, with hair-raising turns, and even a grandstand for your friends to cheer you on from! There is a free shuttle bus from hotels in the south of the island, including Los Cristianos.
Make Like A Celebrity And Try Out Paddle Boarding
Paddle boarding was made famous by celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Rihanna, but you can get your own slice of the action whilst holidaying on this sunny island. You can rent paddle boards from the beach by the port in Los Cristianos, but be warned, this activity provides a little bit of a workout so is probably best enjoyed by your teenage children.
Take The Plunge At Siam Park
No family holiday to Tenerife would be complete without a trip to the waterpark, Siam Park. From the leisurely Jungle Snake to the sheer drop of The Giant, there are slides for all fear factors at this casually Thai themed park. Every day free double decker buses are put on from Los Cristianos, Playa De Las Americas and Costa Adeje to the park, making it quick and easy to get to.
Go Wild At The Jungle Park
For a wild day out, take your family to the Jungle Park – with a free shuttle bus from Los Cristianos, you can be in this animal kingdom in absolutely no time. From orangutans, pelicans, tigers, a seal show and two incredibly rare white lions, there is sure to be something to match your spirit animal.
