Tenerife is the ideal spot for a family holiday all year round; it is particularly good for winter sun vacations due to its mild sunny weather in December and January.
Flight time from the UK and Ireland is just over 4 hours and this can be tough with an active toddler so remember to bring plenty of distractions and snacks for the plane.
Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and offers loads of family friendly beaches, hotels and resorts which cater well to parents with babies and younger kids. Most of the tourist resorts are located in the south of the islands.
The most popular family outing for little ones will no doubt be the beach and the beaches on the island are ideal for youngsters as the waters tend to be shallow.
There are loads of other activities such as theme parks, water parks, aquariums, wildlife reserves and national parks to name but a few, See ‘Top Attractions’. Away from the mainstream tourist activities you can take tropical forest walks, enjoy the Carnival celebrations, museums and explore old colonial towns..
