What family activities are there?

Although there are no water parks, there are plenty of other activities which are great fun for the family. Horse riding, volcano exploring and wildlife spotting are just a few of the activities which are child-friendly on the islands, and that’s without mentioning the endless sandcastle making and hole digging that can be done along the multiple glorious sandy beaches. If your children are a little older, they can enjoy the water sports and quad biking over sand dunes which is on offer too, or how about heading out to sea for a shipwreck adventure via a glass bottomed boat or for a few hours on a family fishing trip? If you’d like even more ideas, take a look at our excursions and experiences page.
