- Tenerife Family holidays
Nobody caters for British families abroad as well as the Spanish do, and combined with the legendary Canaries welcome, that makes family holidays in Tenerife a great way to spend some quality time with your kids - and without them too, as you leave them in the care of your resort's kids' club and go enjoy the local entertainment unencumbered. Whether you just want a family-friendly hotel where you can all be together, or you want qualified supervision of your children so it's safe to take your eyes off of them, the UK-focused Tenerife tourism market is bound to have a package to suit you.
Cheap family holidays to Tenerife bring the entertainment to you, right there in your resort. Family-focused hotels mean a running itinerary of activities and events, competitions for the kids with actual prizes, and potentially the chance to offload the children into a supervised kids' club for a few hours while you take a proper break. It all depends on the resort, the hotel and the specific package deal you have booked, so make sure to read the full description if you are looking for something specific from your holiday.
Out and about
In some cases you might find that your resort has laid on an excursion for all the families staying at the hotel together - or that there are day trips available to book yourself and your children on to. These can be an excellent way to see more of Tenerife if you are not totally comfortable with taking your children on a normal public transport route around the island, so again, make the most of any such ways to flesh out your family holiday on Tenerife.
A rum deal
If you do manage to get some time away from the children during your cheap family break on Tenerife, it could be the perfect opportunity to try the local alcoholic treat, Canary Island honey rum. Not for the faint-hearted, this is a traditional dark rum made with plenty of honey, and the result is a very sweet and syrupy spirit typically with all the strength of a normal navy rum. The perfect way to celebrate in the sunshine when you have a few hours to yourself or with your partner, and the kids are elsewhere taking part in an activity.
Why Tenerife is so great for families
The people of Tenerife love children and go out of their way to make sure that kids are just as well looked after as their parents. Stunning, sandy beaches, spectacular landscapes and a great variety of child-friendly attractions await discovery on family holidays in Tenerife. All of this, combined with an agreeable year-round climate and Tenerife's chilled-out way of life, ensures that even the most frazzled of families are relaxed and inspired by the time they leave this magical island.
