The Canary Islands, also known as the Canaries, are an ideal vacation spot for families with babies, toddlers and young children all year round. The most popular islands for visitors with young kids include Lanzarote (very popular with familes), Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Tenerife.
The resorts on the islands have plenty of family friendly accommodation and attractions and the restaurants are very baby and toddler friendly also with almost all offering high chairs and children’s menus. Many will also have changing tables in the restrooms. There are plenty of zoos, amusement parks and water parks on the islands and of course toddlers will love the sandy beaches.
Flight from the UK and Ireland are between 4 and 4.5 hours which can be tricky with toddlers. See our guide to flying with toddlers for more information on how to manage the flights.
