Gran Canaria is a great holiday destination for anyone, but as it is universally associated with only sand, sea and sun, family groups often overlook it.
There is so much beyond the beaches of Gran Canaria, and many fantastic attractions and sights to see that kids will love.
The island has the largest population of all the Canary Islands, and has been attracting tourists for many years, so is more than equipped for you and your family.Discover Gran Canaria with your family on your next holiday by booking online here: http://www.directholidays.co.uk/destinations/spain/canary-islands/gran-canaria.
The Cocodrillo Park in Gran Canaria is home to the biggest collection of crocodiles in Europe. There are over three hundred crocodiles here, as well as birds and tropical fish. Luckily not all in the same enclosure! Learn about the history and natural habitats of the animals on a visit here, and explore the African Empire themed park. Stop for a drink or something to eat in the café and remember your trip with a souvenir from the gift shop.
Holiday World Amusement Park
Kids will love the Holiday World Amusement Park. Here you can find all the top outdoor amusements in one place, with bouncy castles, a fun fair, a bowling alley, an arcade, and many other attractions within the park. There are also Internet cafés, bars and restaurants for those who may have outgrown the activities.
Dolphin and Whale Cruises
A trip to Gran Canaria offers a unique chance to see whales and dolphins in their natural habitat. Spot them off the coast of the island on one of the many whale and dolphin cruises that run from the shores. Even if the animals decide not to show their faces, travelling by boat is an amazing way to take in the beauty of the island.
Gran Canaria is an awesome place to take kids, and they will love it just as much as you. Make your next family holiday extra special, with a visit to this diamond in the Canaries.
