Tenerife is a favourite holiday destination for many Brits as it is possible to visit for a week or two of complete relaxation in the sun, flopping on the beach and drinking in the lively bars...
However, the island also appeals to those after a more energetic holiday as it has several golf courses, great diving opportunities and a range of watersports.
The largest of the Canary Islands also has an impressive range of accommodation - you can stay in a five-star hotel and be pampered, but, if partying is your priority, there are plenty of budget options too. Similarly, the resorts on the island offer something for even the fussiest of visitor from family-friendly beaches (some black sand, some golden) to exclusive spa breaks.
The southern resort of Playa de las Americas is the place to head for a fun-filled break as bars and restaurants line the beaches serving everything from full-English breakfasts to tapas. While the days here are all about topping up your tan, the nights are the time to let your hair down and to drink until dawn.
Just down the coast, Los Cristianos is a good option for a slightly quieter beach break, but one that still offers plenty of choice when it comes to eating and drinking. The imported golden sand, pedestrian promenades and sheltered bay makes the former fishing town a popular option for families. Plus, children will love the nearby “water kingdom”, Siam Park, with a handy free bus service on offer from the resort.
Puerto de la Cruz in the north of the island was a popular destination for tourists as early as the 19th century, and is still a hot spot today. Visitors can relax on black sand beaches or in the Costa Martianez Complex - a lido with a range of bars, restaurants and a nightclub - or take a trip to Loro Parque to see animals including parrots, tigers and gorillas.
Other options for holidaymakers include the quiet northern village Garachico - a world away from the busier south of the island - with naturally-formed pools created following volcanic eruptions; and Costa Adeje just up the coast from the lively destinations of Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas that offers a quieter base.
More adventurous travellers can also visit Teide National Park to see the volcanic landscape and the highest point in Spain.
