The best activities for your holiday with children.

Summer is one of the favourite seasons, especially for children. The kids finish their classes after 9 months and are eager to make the most of their free time, and parents can enjoy and spend the summer with their children during this long holiday period.

Among the best plans to enjoy free time are beaches, swimming pools, cultural visits, theme parks and water parks or discovering hidden corners of the island. 

Today we encourage you to discover the best plans for vacations with children in Gran Canaria. You’ll be able to enjoy a new experience every day with the youngest members of the family and collect family memories.

5 summer plans for children

Enjoying a summer holiday with children, where excitement and joy is most important, is possible on an island like Gran Canaria, where you can find a wide variety of plans.

In this article we’re going to talk about the 10 best summer plans for children.

1. Discover the best beaches

All children love the beach, especially playing in the sand, swimming and enjoying the sun with their family and friends.

The south of the island is the ideal place to enjoy a pleasant day at the beach with the youngest members of the family. Beaches such as Maspalomas with the Dunes, Playa del Inglés or Meloneras are an excellent option for discovering the best beaches in Gran Canaria.

2. Natural swimming pools

As well as having the best natural beaches in the Canary Islands, Gran Canaria has one more attraction for summer holidays with children, the natural swimming pools that you can find in Agaete or El Puertillo, in the Arucas area.

In the north, we can find the best ones, ideal for children to swim and enjoy a relaxing day at the beach. They can also develop their adventurous side, looking for crabs or seashells.

3. Theme parks

Gran Canaria has a wide variety of theme parks. Each one of them can be chosen according to the age or tastes of the children.

Among the theme parks we can highlight Palmitos Park, where you can enjoy the best representation of the flora and fauna of the island, Aqualand Maspalomas, the most important water park in the Canary Islands and the amusement park Holiday World Maspalomas, the most complete amusement park with the best gastronomic offer that can be found in the islands. 

4. Hiking routes

What better way to get to know Gran Canaria than on its hiking trails? It’s a fun and healthy way of getting to know some of the island's beautiful landscapes and hidden places.

There are some simple routes, with areas that are suitable for walking with children. One of the best routes to enjoy hiking with your kids is tilos de Moya, of approximately 2 kilometres, with fairly accessible areas. It’s one of the places where part of the island's Laurisilva forest is best preserved.

Another of the routes for summer vacations with children is the Barranco de los Cernícalos or the Barranco de Azuaje ravine.
