Lanzarote is a favourite holiday destination for families. With families of multiple generations coming to the island it is important that there is something for everyone to do.
One of the hardest things to do on holiday, while the adults are trying to relax from the day to day pressures of work, is keep the kinds entertained. Sometimes the sun, sand and sea just enough and the demands on the parents can become quite stressful ensuring that the kids are happy (and quiet!).
Like many family orientated holiday destinations Lanzarote offers many different activities and attractions for the kids, and if you are staying in a hotel or complex there is also a very strong chance that daily kids clubs are available. Kids clubs are great and provide a range of activities, both on land and in the pool to keep the kids occupied whilst you chill out on a sun lounger. The kids are safe and you have the peace of mind that they are being supervised with trained first aiders usually on hand.
If you don't mind putting your hand in your pocket and you want to venture outside your hotel or complex there are also other activities that the kids might enjoy, such as Submarine Safaris in Puerto Calero or Camel Rides just outside Puerto del Carmen and in the Timanfaya National Park. These activities are something that the kids probably don't do everyday so the chances are that they will be interested and excited in what is going on.
If your kids are generally easily pleased (lucky you) then there are many different beaches that you can choose from in Lanzarote. Some of the main beaches in the resorts are managed and have life guards on hand. It is strongly advised that you keep your kids topped up with sun protection creams, even if its cloudy, as the Lanzarote Sun can be very unforgiving!
Kids into animals? Great - then head on over to the Rancho Texas Park. This animal reserve, just outside Puerto del Carmen has many different animals including white tigers, skunks, deer, Cougars and Sea Lions. There are also themed areas of the park, such as the Gold Mine and Gardens and with the recently opened Water Park Rancho Texas Park could keep your kids occupied all day long!
Speaking of Waterparks, Aqua Lanza, in Costa Teguise, is another great attraction for the kids. With slides and water based attractions for kids of all ages its a great way to keep them entertained and out of your hair!
These are just a few things that can help to keep the kids entertained. Depending on the age of the children there are other things such as Quad Biking, Horse Riding, Karting and Cycling. Maybe even Golf for the young teenage enthusiasts, but generally there is plenty to do in Lanzarote for families and kids of all ages.
Enjoy your holiday!
