Family trip to Terceira Island with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Terceira is a place where the child will want to come back, despite the fact that there are no special "children's" entertainments such as amusement parks or water parks. If you wish, you can look for a hotel with a children's club, entertainers and a playground for kids. There are a lot of such places on the island. But your child will enjoy holidays on the island as much as you do. You should remember that some routes will be difficult for a baby. However, there are many opportunities not only to interest the child with beautiful historical monuments but also to show him all the beauty of the Azores.

There is a charming town of the same name, which itself is a historical monument. Narrow streets, chapels and temples, small houses, the city square and the main cathedral – all this will surely seem to the child an illustration to his favourite fairy tale. That is not surprising because the local buildings have not changed much since the 15th century. Boys and many girls will surely enjoy the fortresses of São João Baptista and San Francisco which were built more than 5 centuries ago.
You can show a panorama of the island to your child not far from the city on Monte Brasil. You can reach the peak of the mount by car or on foot if your child is not tired. Curious and active children will surely like the idea of riding a horse. You can find cloven-hoofed animals in the stable near the town. Do not be afraid that the horse will throw the child – all of the local horses are calm and accustomed to walking under the saddle. Here you can not only go with your child on a horseback ride but also feed an animal. But it is possible to do only with the permission of the instructor. Copyright

Show the child the estates of Portuguese aristocrats in the area of Terra Chã.
Does your child like snorkelling or diving? Then make sure to go with your child to a "graveyard of lost ships" right next to the island. Galleons and caravels from Europe, Asia and Africa found shelter at the bottom of the sea and divers can see them nowadays. Local beaches Porto Martins and Contendas are perfect for snorkelling. They are usually not crowded with people. It is an entertaining activity for every child who can swim. You can also get acquainted with the local inhabitants of the sea during excursions to the habitats of whales and dolphins.
