What to Do in Gran Canaria with kids

A friendly family destination, Gran Canaria welcomes kids enthusiastically, with fun activities, world-class theme parks, great museums, and, of course, sun, sea and sand.
Gran Canaria definitely caters to children on holiday. With a plethora of fantastic family attractions, kids will have a great time exploring this island.

There are a number of good beaches for kids, although families may prefer to seek out the sandy stretches instead of the dramatically beautiful black beaches, which can be a bit pebbly.

Take a day trip to Palmitos Park for an interesting day out with birds and orchids, or for thrills, Parque de los Cocodrilo is great for those with a love of predators, while the zoo on the other side is perfect for younger kids to explore. Playa del Ingles is brimming with kid’s activities, with everything from amusement arcades and mini-golf to water parks and go-karting, children will find something to keep them entertained.

Another fun day out in Gran Canaria is a visit to Sioux City, which was built originally as a stage set for an American western film in 1972, but developed into a Wild West theme park complete with cowboys, Indians, Mexicans and of course a sheriff. There are shows throughout the day featuring bank robberies, saloon fights, cattle stampedes, rodeos and gunfights at the OK Corral. Between shows visitors can enjoy a barbeque or taste the culinary delights of the Three Star Saloon.
