What can you do with children in Gran Canaria?

If you are in Gran Canaria or plan to visit the island in the near future, travelling with children can be a unique experience for the whole family. Today we present you with 5 great plans to do in Gran Canaria with children. Surely you will find the option that best suits you and your children. Don't miss them! 

1. Dunes of Maspalomas 

Protected by the Government of the Canary Islands as a special natural reserve, the more than 400 hectares of the Dunes of Maspalomas include, among other things, an excellent beach, a forest of palm trees, a field of live dunes of organic sand and a brackish lagoon. A great little wonder! 

Although all the beaches of Gran Canaria are very suitable places to spend the day with children, the mixture between desert and oasis offered by the Dunes of Maspalomas makes it an idyllic and special place for a truly memorable stay. They also offer the possibility of taking fun camel rides, something that children will always remember with these friendly and affable animals. Located in the municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana, to the south of the island of Gran Canaria, perhaps the sunset is the perfect time to get lost in the Dunes of Maspalomas, which is said to be one of the best sunsets in the world. If you don't know them yet, you shouldn't wait any longer. Discover this magical place as soon as possible! 

2. Wooland 

Few spaces so special for children as Wooland, the amusement parkof Holidayworld Maspalomas. A completely renovated place that is part of the imagination of several generations, where residents and visitors remember Holidayworld fondly as part of their youth or their unforgettable holidays. Fun is guaranteed for you and your whole family! 

In Wooland you will find, among other attractions, the only roller coaster of all the Canary Islands, a Ferris wheel that allows a 360-degree view of the entire south of the island, as well as various themed carousels, crash cars and countless activities for the family to stay together and happy. Wooland, in Holidayworld, has outdoor spaces and indoor spaces where children's attractions will be located, which will be an advantage for days of bad weather. Wooland offers all the facilities to make the family activity a success, including parking, wifi, breastfeeding area or a wide variety of restaurants. Especially if you travel with children, you can't miss it! 

3. Natural pools 

Gran Canaria has many charms to enjoy a wonderful holiday. One of these, without a doubt, are the natural swimming pools: they are paradisiacal places with sea water where we can take a relaxing bath while contemplating beautiful and evocative landscapes. 

As they are enclosed spaces, natural swimming pools are perfect for enjoying with children due to the safety and tranquillity they offer their parents. Regardless of their age and dexterity, they will be able to approach the marine environment in a different way. Some of the options not to be missed are Las Salinas (Agaete), Roque Prieto (Santa Maria de la Guia), Charco de San Lorenzo (coast of Moya), or Los Charcones (Aruca). What are you waiting for to visit them? 

4. Nomad Gastro Market

If you are an authentic foodie and enjoy good food with your family, you can't miss Nomad Gastro Market, the gastronomic market of Holidayworld Maspalomas. In Nomad Gastro Market you will find more than 400 culinary references, wines, beers and cocktails from some of the most outstanding restaurateurs that operate in Gran Canaria.

From Italian food options, to Arabic, through Andalusian, Basque, local options, Japanese ... and so many more! Among such a variety, the little ones will also find their favorite dishes, presented in a traditional way or with a certain amount of avant-garde. Unlike a traditional restaurant, here each member of the family can choose their favorite restaurant and then sit at the same table. It's literally impossible not to find the perfect option for everyone! Haven't you already had your mouth watering? If you are one of those who enjoy a "Gourmet experience", you should get to know Nomad Gastro Market as soon as possible: a place where you can enjoy signature gastronomic creations even with children at the most affordable price. Your palate will always remember it!

5. Hiking

It's not just an island of beaches and sea! One of the biggest attractions of Gran Canaria is the wide variety of landscapes it offers. It is really rare to find such a wide range of places in such a small space. This is certainly great news for mountain and hiking lovers, who find the island the perfect place to get lost and unwind.

Gran Canaria has a multitude of routes for all types of audiences, both experts and those looking to get started. Hiking can be the first contact for children with the natural environment as a form of leisure, and undoubtedly is an activity that will allow you to grow stronger and develop. The climatic conditions allow this activity to be carried out almost all year round, due to the good climate, and entering the interior will allow the whole family to know the best-kept secrets of the island. It will be an experience for the little ones. Do it for them! If you visit Gran Canaria with children, don't miss places of interest such as Roque Nublo, Artenara, Tejeda or Agaete... and the best option is always hiking!

As you can see, Gran Canaria offers a multitude of interesting plans to do with children. Today we have presented you with spectacular dunes, natural pools where you can disconnect, the largest amusement park of all the Canary Islands, hiking routes where you can get to know hidden corners of the island, or a gastronomic market where you can give free rein to your Gourmet side... But there's much more! Don't let them tell you, and find out. And you, do you know what a great plan to do now as a family? Gran Canaria awaits you!
