Mummy and O Tenerife

A Family Holiday in Tenerife

Mummy and O Tenerife

Enjoying Tenerife when Oliver was younger.

In fitting with my recent holiday themed posts, I bring you another fantastic family friendly destination: Tenerife.

When Oliver was 15 months, we spent Easter in Los Cristianos in the largest of the Canary Islands.

Luckily with summer-like weather all year round, spring was a perfect time to holiday with a young child as it was warm yet not unbearably hot and Oliver could enjoy being by the pool or beach, in the shade for most of the day.

It’s funny reflecting on him being a baby now that he is 3 and I really enjoyed finding these old photographs and reminiscing about one of our favourite family holidays.

With golden beaches and blue waters as far as the eye can see, along with restaurants and shops on the boardwalk, we found it an ideal location for young families.

I personally adored the labyrinth of boutiques and designer stores along the parade that were open late and I bought the cutest Nike sandals for Oliver (above) along with some pretty summery dresses for myself whiles we were there.

I would recommend nearby Aqualand for delightful dolphin shows, play areas and swimming pools for all the family and Siam Park, a water park with rides and slides suited for slightly older children and teenagers (or adults who never quite grew up!).

By night, it lights up as one of the busiest places in the south of Tenerife along with nearby Playa de las Américas but there are plenty of family friendly restaurants and quieter parts for those wanting dinner and a few drinks.

We found the locals friendly, the food fabulous and the holiday the most relaxing of breaks. We would like to return again later on in the year, with baby Alexander in tow and hope to stay at the gran oasis resort tenerife this time in Los Cristianos.

Have you been to Tenerife and what did you think of it?
