Tenerife really is the total package, with friendly locals, stunning landscapes and a fascinating culture – not to mention some of the best beaches in the Atlantic. What’s more, it’s a place where you’ll find some incredibly cheap holiday deals – result!
Shaped like a lamb chop, Tenerife is the largest of the seven Canary Islands and easily the most diverse. Blessed with year-round sunshine and seriously mind-boggling scenery, there’s more to the island than meets the eye. And then some.
Snow-tipped Mount Teide, Spain’s tallest peak and the third highest volcano on the planet, is rarely out of eye-shot, while beyond the imported white sand of the main beach drags, you’ll find sweeping vineyards, charming colonial towns, bizarre rocky pinnacles and ancient forests.
The south west of the island remains a magnet for perma-tanners and party animals planning to go hard by night and pass out around the pool by day. With every kind of break available, from all-inclusive Tenerife holidays to basic apartment stays, Playa de las Américas is the hub of all hedonism. Neon signs throb like the house music that pumps out from its shot bars, groups of revelers reel between Irish bars and mornings are hushed to accommodate the collective hangover.
It’s the scene of cheap Tenerife holiday blow-outs and quite something to see at 4am, almost deserving of an Attenborough documentary.
However, Tenerife holidays don’t need to be quite so hard on the liver. Neighbouring Los Cristianos is a little more restrained, somehow retaining a fishing village feel even as fake Egyptian pyramids pop up around it. This makes it brilliant territory for a package family holiday, and there are plenty of deals to be had if you’re looking for cheap holidays in Tenerife.
Further along the shore, Costa Adeje is the cool new kid on the beach block. If you’re looking to add a touch of luxury to your all-inclusive Tenerife holiday, look no further.
Finally, the toasted sands of El Médano are a long-standing surf hotspot, ideal for free spirits and great deals on Tenerife holidays.
Take a look at the north
Northern Tenerife is nothing like its southern sister. A gorgeous jumble of historic towns, banana plantations, volcanic pools and lush valleys, this rugged region feels far more like Latin America than mainland Spain.
It’s here that Tenerife shows its true saucy colours, hosting a raucous yearly Carnival rivalled only by Rio’s. So, if you’re after a cultural Tenerife holiday, stick to the top half – it’s packed with tradition and quirky local character. What’s more, the hiking around here is up there with the best in Europe and Tenerife walking holidays are popping up all over the place.
Head to Garachico, one of Tenerife’s most picturesque towns, to take a dip in swimming pools formed by solidified lava.
For lots of fun and plenty to keep the family entertained, holidays to Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos holidays are the ideal choice. Great family hotels, an exciting range of theme parks and attractions to pick from and plenty of family friendly restaurants.
Costa Adeje makes for a perfect romantic getaway being home to some of the Canary Islands most plush hotels, restaurants and bars. A quiet hideaway full of sun, scenery and culture, have a look a the holiday resorts of Callao Salvaje and Playa de la Arena in the south.
