What to do in Lanzarote with children.
This is one of the most special places on the island. The black lava of the set of caves and volcanic channels of the place contrasts with the small and unique ” white crabs “ of the world (albinos and blind crabs) that inhabit it.
The Lanzarote architect César Manrique transformed this place with gardens, a swimming pool, a restaurant and an auditorium. All of which are in complete harmony with the landscape and embellish it even more if applicable.
Playa Papagayo, Playa Grande y Playa Chica.
A child likes nothing more than spending a few fun hours on the beach. Playa Papagayo is not a solitary beach in itself, it is a group of coves with golden sand and turquoise water that are located in the south of the island.
Another great place to have a swim and refresh yourself is Playa Grande. Perhaps it is one of the most visited because it has all the services and amenities such as bathrooms, changing rooms, hammock rental …
Playa Chica is located in the town of Puerto del Carmen. This small beach is perfect for families and for snorkeling. It is so small that you can have your children under control without any problems! ?
Travel Tip: If you are interested in carrying out an activity that the children will surely love, you can hire an excursion to spot dolphins. They depart from La Marina in Puerto del Carmen.
Excursion to the island of La Graciosa.
A 25 minute ferry crossing from Orzola Port will take us to the beautiful island of La Graciosa. You can take a leisurely stroll through this almost untouched landscape and its coquettish capital, Caleta de Sebo, overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
You can rent bicycles and explore its unpaved streets during your visit.
Timanfaya National Park.
It is an obligatory stop if you are visiting Lanzarote. Don’t miss the opportunity to discover the Route of the Volcanoes, where you will walk through a “lunar” landscape full of craters that seem to have been taken from another world. In the Islote del Hilario area, the children will be surprised to see a geothermal demonstration: A bucket of water is poured into the earth anda few seconds later a strong jet of steam emerges.
The visit to the park will be led by a tour guide. You can hire an organized excursion departing from several of the island’s hotels or go directly to the park by car and then visit with the park’s official bus.
The Green Cave is one of the “must” of Lanzaronte. This spectacular natural cave runs through the subsoil of Lanzarote from La Corona Volcano to the sea.
Formerly used as a refuge to get rid of the pirates and invaders that besieged the island, today it can be explored without any problem as it has an area of passable underground galleries of approximately 2 km that conceals many secrets… That you have to discover! ?
The tour lasts about an hour and is very entertaining thanks to the light effects and music played inside. We are sure you will like it!
This unusual garden of about 5,000 square meters contains more than 1.000 species of cactus originating from various parts of the world. The children will love to explore its trails while observing the great variety of shapes and colours of the plants.
El Charco de los Clicos or Charco Verde.
The famous green puddle (shade produced by algae) surrounded by black volcanic sand next to a reddish slope that we have seen so much in photos.
From the top of a viewpoint we will see this atypical lagoon formed between the sea and the mountain. I am sure that this iconic image of Lanzarote will enchant… the whole family!
You can use this opportunity to visit the village of El Golfo: a coquettish fishing village where you will have the opportunity to taste fresh fish from the day.
