Looking for sunshine and partying at any time of the year? Playa de las Americas, on the island of Tenerife, could be just the ticket.
And the year-round sunshine means that you can even book a beach break here in January - prefect for warding off the winter blues.
Wedged between Los Cristianos and Costa Adeje on the south coast of Tenerife - the biggest and most westerly of the big four Canary Islands, which include Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria - Playa de las Americas has been attracting holidaymakers since the 1960s. Daytime temperatures on the island rarely drop below 18C, and the party scene on Playa de las Americas is equally hot, hot, hot!
Whether you want to blast out some karaoke tunes, dance the night away as DJs spin tunes or drink brightly coloured cocktails and have a laugh with friends, it's all here for you. Just head to the main nightlife hotspots: the Veronicas Strip, the Patch and Starco Commercial Centre.
Away from those areas, holidays in Playa de las Americas are good for families and couples, too. Everyone loves the wide sandy bay of the resort and there are plenty of hotels and self-catering apartments tucked away from the rowdy after-hours antics. Some of the finer hotels in Playa de las Americas occupy positions on the edges of the resort, where nights are quieter. And there's lots to do, whatever your age, with fun day trips, including Mount Teide, the nearby slides and rides at Siam Park, whale- and dolphin-watching cruises, and shopping in the capital of Santa Cruz all likely to appeal.
You can reach the resort by flying into Tenerife South Airport (TFS). The flight time from the UK is around four to five hours, which makes Tenerife one of the most popular short-haul winter-sun destinations in Europe.
