Cheap, easy to get to and home to gorgeous beaches, stunning views and all year-round sunshine, it’s pretty easy to see why Tenerife has long been a favourite for Brits. Discover for it yourself with a villa holiday in 2019.
If it’s a classic Tenerife beach break you’re after, head south west. Here you’ll find some of the island’s best-known resorts. Generally good value for money, if you don’t mind a busier, touristy and altogether livelier vibe, then this is the place to be for your villa holiday.
Looking to party? Playa de las Américas, with its ‘Vegas-like’ charm and electric nightlife, might be the one for you. After something a little calmer? Take it down a notch at Los Cristianos, a great shout for alfresco dining and an altogether quieter experience. Finally, upmarket Costa Adeje is a lot more laidback, ideal for couples and families.
Away from these popular resorts you’ll find another side to Tenerife; a calmer, less developed and ruggedly alluring part of the island. If that sounds like your cup of tea, then look to rent a villa in the north of the island.
If you’re after somewhere tranquil and out of the way, Buenavista del Norte is a good bet. Located in the north west, it’s one of the island’s quieter spots. Meanwhile, for a taste of old world Tenerife, look towards the charming town of Garachico. Wander its cobbled streets, explore its rocky coastline and take a dip in its natural volcanic sea pools.
Elsewhere, Puerto de la Cruz will satisfy those after a typical resort experience in the north. Expect black sand beaches, a chic plaza and a top dining scene. Check out the Loro Parque Zoo and the Jardín Botánico, too.
Finally, in terms of when to visit Tenerife for your villa holiday – there’s never really a bad time. Naturally, the island is at its busiest during the Easter holidays, as well as between July and September (during the sizzling summer months, you’ll be thankful you booked a villa with a private pool). Do note that prices tend to be higher during these periods.
If it’s budget you’re after, book a break between May and June, as well as late September to November.
