Lanzarote is a great place for a family beach holiday with its long sandy shores and warm waters but if you start to get tired of your bucket and spade then there are many other activities to keep you entertained throughout your stay.
In Puerto Calero you can go on a Submarine Safari which is fantastic for the whole family as you join the huge variety of marine life under the water in their natural habitat. A tour guide will talk you through the dive as you get up close and personal with the fish from behind your very own viewing portal. Anyone over the age of 2 years can go and it is a truly unique experience and makes for a very memorable family holiday. The Canarian Cetacean Museum also in Puerto Calero teaches you all about whales and dolphins. If you want to see the sea life without joining them, then head to one of the many places along the coast that offer excursions on a glass bottomed boat. You can see fish, reefs and even dolphins as you take a leisurely trip which is bound to thrill adults and children alike. For those how want to learn more about the sea there are plenty of opportunities to get on a boat around the island and for children to learn the ropes catamaran-sailing (such a smooth ride that even buggies are allowed on board!).
There is a great selection of waterparks in Lanzarote: Aquapark in Costa Teguise, Aqualava and the waterpark Paradise Island in Playa Blanca. Rancho Texas Park is just outside Puerto del Carmen and is a nature park which includes an Indian village where the kids can play in tepees and play cowboys and Indians. There are many shows including a Parrot show, Sea lion show and Birds of Prey demonstration and when those batteries need refueling you can head to one of the many themed restaurants around the park. For another great day out visit Guinate Tropical Park with 45,000 square feet of gardens, lakes and waterfalls and 1,300 exotic and vibrant birds and animals it is an exciting place to spend a day. They hold regular parrot shows, and have many facilities including a restaurant and even a bazaar where you can get a souvenir of your visit. Lanzarote a Caballo offers horse-back and camel trips, which are a unique way to enjoy the island´s landscape.
Also buggy trips and paintball are available. Nearby, Lanzarote Go Karting offers a fun driving challenge for all ages.
