Holidays in Tenerife also appeal to those after a more energetic getaway, as it has several golf courses, great diving opportunities and a range of water sports.
The largest of the Canary Islands has an impressive range of accommodation too - you can stay in a five-star hotel and be pampered, or, if partying is your priority, there are plenty of budget options. 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.
All-inclusive Tenerife holidays are popular with visitors who enjoy the convenience of eating and drinking on-site. You can kick back, relax and take full advantage of your hotel’s 24-hour services and amenities. All-inclusive holidays to Tenerife can be terrific value too. But be sure to compare the cost of cheap all-inclusive holidays to Tenerife with the price of a room-only or bed-and-breakfast break (plus the expected cost of dining out) on TravelSupermarket - you might discover that you can make significant savings on your next getaway to this super sunshine isle.
Of course, you might prefer to discover the hospitality of Tenerife in its welcoming bars and restaurants. Eating out here is good value and, while Canarian cuisine is varied and delicious, a global menu is available at the island’s many themed restaurants. Noodles, pizza, steak, even pie and chips… whatever you fancy is on offer here.
The southern resort of Playa de las Americas is the place to be for a fun-filled break as bars and restaurants line the beaches serving everything from full-English breakfasts to traditional tapas. While the days here are all about topping up your tan, the nights are the time to let your hair down and party 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 make 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 hotspot 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 of Garachico - a world away from the busier south of the island - where age-old volcanic eruptions formed natural pools. Costa Adeje is another peaceful holiday destination. It is just up the coast from the lively destinations of Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas, meaning that nightlife is just a stroll away, should you fancy an after-dark dance.
Adventurous travellers can visit Teide National Park to see the volcanic landscape and the highest point in Spain.
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.

The famed “eternal spring” of the Canary Islands means sunshine and warmth all year round in Tenerife. Need to pack a jacket? Find out here.
The temperatures on Tenerife remain pleasantly warm all year round. Even in January, daytime temperatures average 17C. August tends to be the hottest month with daytime temperatures averaging 24C – but often pushing well beyond this. You won’t need a jacket on those warm summer nights (bring one in winter though, as evenings can feel cool).
There's always something going on in fun-filled Tenerife, from family parades to food and music festivals. Here's our pick of the best.
Canary Islands Music Festival; held at various venues in January and February: This classical music festival has been running since 1985 and aims to increase visitor numbers to the islands while showing that there is more to the Canary Islands than just sun, sea and sand (but you knew that, right?).
Tenerife Carnaval; February: The capital, Santa Cruz, hosts one of the biggest carnival celebrations not just in the Canaries, but the entire world. The party spirit sweeps across the island, though the city really is the place to be for the full fantastic effect.
Noche de San Juan; June: The biggest celebration is in Puerto de la Cruz when, on Midsummer's Eve, thousands of people go to the beach with picnics and flowers. Bonfires are lit, fireworks are set off, bands play and, at midnight, people go into the sea to reap the benefits of the magical Midsummer waters (they are believed to bring good health for the year ahead). Be there and join in this friendly ritual.
Make the most of your sizzling Spanish holiday with our top tips on things to do.
Nightlife: Looking for a wild night out? Head to Playa de las Americas for shots, foam parties and karaoke bars. Dance until dawn in the banging club districts of Starco and The Patch and along neon-lit Veronicas strip.
Babies & toddlers: Take the tots to the broad, sandy bay of Los Cristianos and cool off under the volcano-like fountain. The beachfront playgrounds and palm-lined pedestrian promenades make it perfect for young families.
Grown-up families: Ever wanted to spot a whale? Sail away from the towering cliffs of Los Gigantes and out to sea aboard a glass-bottomed boat or catamaran. Keep your eyes peeled for frolicking bottlenose dolphins and pilot whales.
Kids & teens: Kids love the thrills and spills of Asian-themed water kingdom Siam Park. Zip down flumes through the jungle, ride rapids past Thai temples and surf enormous artificial waves at the Wave Palace.
Romance: Feel your heart skip a beat on the winding road to Masca. This cliff-hanger of a village is perched amid massive mountains, rocky pinnacles and lush terraces. Share the dreamy views and tasty local cactus ice cream.
Active types: Hike through a multi-coloured moonscape of wind-eroded rocks and craters in the Teide National Park. Feeling energetic? Clamber up to Mount Teide, Spain's highest peak at 3,718m, for cloud-speckled views of the island.
Relaxing: Keep your cool in Puerto de la Cruz's botanical gardens on holidays to Tenerife. This wonderland of exotic plants in the Orotava Valley bristles with spiky dragon trees, flame-like bird of paradise flowers and giant figs with strangler roots.
