Tenerife is one of the best holiday destinations, especially for families. On top of all the natural and attractive places on Tenerife, there are loads of stuff for families on vacation. From exploring the magnificent underwater world on a submarine safari tour to riding out with Freebird Catamaran, the place deserves to be on your list of ‘best places to visit on vacations!”
Here’s a list of family excursions on Tenerife you may want to know about
Breathtaking Siam Park:
The Siam Park is full of temples, grotesque giant masks, and oversized dragons, which help create a glimpse of Thailand on a hillside above Costa Adeje.
The 28 metre Tower of Power and the Dragon can put any fearless adrenaline junky enthusiasm on the test. Meanwhile, the Lost City is a centre of attraction for children. If such extreme activities don’t seem exciting, floating down the Mai Thai River or relaxing on the sands of Playa Siam can be the perfect options for those looking for a relaxing experience.
If you move to south-west seas, you can witness dolphins for sure. It’s because the area of water between Tenerife and neighbouring La Gomera works is like a magnet to cetaceans. Nearly 21 species visit here with pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins being the most common of all. Above all, one of the rare sightings involves orcas and sperm whales.
Whale and dolphin watching excursions are in abundance from Los Gigantes, Los Cristianos and Puerto Colón on Tenerife. However, make sure you run a check on vessels affiliated with the Tenerife’s Quality Tourism Services.
Jungle Park is a huge jungle situated in the south of Tenerife where numerous animal species enjoy their lives in the lap of nature. Jungle Park is for sure a highly recommendable activity for adults, young people, and families. The soft and comfortable climate of the Jungle Park area and the fun activities are the reasons that lead us this conclusion.
Go on a Camel Ride:
Camel used to be a common sight in the south area of Tenerife. They were the choice of farmers in agriculture as a replacement for cows because they suited the terrain better. So, sitting on a camel’s back on Tenerife may not be as unusual as it may seem.
Also, there are a few camel parks scattered around the island, with the most exciting at El Tanque, La Camella, and Puerto de la Cruz.
Museum of Science and the Cosmos:
A museum visit for your family excursion might not sound like a great idea. But the Museum of Science and the Cosmos are an interactive call. If you are sceptical about this, turning your face into a skull, lifting a car with your one finger and getting lost in the mirror maze sound may change your opinion. And if you visit the museum on Sunday, entry is free.
The title “swimming pool complex” can do the justice to the Lago Martiánez in Puerto de la Cruz designed by Lanzarote architect Cesár Manrique. It can be one of the best family excursions on Tenerife because it has so much to offer, such as a set of lagoons, plunge pools, channels and fountains installed in sub-tropical surroundings.
Summary: If you are planning a trip to Tenerife and don’t know the best places to visit here, you might get lost wandering from one place to another. So, be prepared for best family excursions on Tenerife, and enjoy every bit of your journey.
