Ah, Lanzarote. The Canary island has long been a holiday favourite among Brits – but did you know that it’s also a great destination for families? Located off the West African coast, it boasts an array of charms for visitors, especially if you’ve got kids.
Here, we explore the five key reasons why…
1. Short plane journeys
Ever flown with young kids? If so, you’ll no doubt know how stressful long flights can be. After all, when they have to stay still for a long time, young children tend to grow restless. Fly to Lanzarote, though, and you can enjoy a short journey there and back. Pack some books and games in your hand luggage, and you’ll be able to keep them entertained during both flights.
2. Family-friendly resorts
It can be tricky to find a decent family resort – unless you’re in Lanzarote, that is. The island is home to a number of escapes designed specifically for families. Take Hyde Park Lane Lanzarote, for example. It offers a charming getaway with a host of child-friendly features – and better still, it’s just a short walk from some glorious beaches. For family-friendly lodgings, look no further than Lanzarote.
3. Kids activities galore
Sea. Sand. Sunshine. Lanzarote delivers all three, the whole year-round. And so, it’s the perfect place to bond with the kids. Here, you’re free to explore the wonders of the ocean on a snorkelling adventure. Or you could splash about as a family at one of the island’s water parks, many of which offer facilities for little ones. For a relaxing activity, head to the beach for an afternoon of games and a picnic. Opportunities for fun are endless in Lanzarote!
4. Plenty of learning opportunities
Want your kids to learn something new on holiday? Well, Lanzarote offers plenty of opportunities for this. Pique their curiosity with a trip to one of its volcanoes and immerse them in the wonder of these natural landmarks. You can even boost the educational value of your trip even further by taking the kids to the famous Lanzarote lagoon. Or why don’t you find out all about the black sand beach as a family? There are plenty of fun lessons on offer in Lanzarote; visit it, and you’ll see this for yourself!
5. Sunshine – and plenty of it
Do you and your family love the sunshine? If the answer’s yes, then Lanzarote could be the ideal holiday destination for you. As pointed out earlier, the island is sunny throughout the year, and only suffers from the occasional spot of bad weather. We all know that sunshine can benefit our health (so long as we use enough sunscreen and dress sensibly) – so, why not treat yourself and the kids to a holiday filled with it?
Lanzarote has heaps to offer the whole family, from learning opportunities to luscious lodgings. So, how about making it your next destination?
