Tantalising Tenerife

Spend your next holiday amid fresh island breezes, warm turquoise waters and the glorious sunshine of the Atlantic in Tenerife. As the largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife attracts new visitors each and every year that are drawn to its beautiful volcanic landscapes, hidden villages and year-round sunshine.

Boasting a whole host of attractions, including Mount Teide National Park and plenty of sandy beaches, Tenerife holidays are simply unforgettable. Just off the west coast of Africa, it's a favourite with groups and couples looking to have fun, relax and up their tans. It is also a great location for that perfect family getaway.

Sun and Sea

You are spoilt for choice when deciding where to stay during your holidays to Tenerife, as the island is home to two distinct areas, either perfect for a range of holidaymakers. Those looking for sun, sea, and swimming in close range, try resorts in Playa de las Americas that are only footsteps from the beach and boast glorious swimming pools.

If you are in search of a tranquil break, why not look to the aptly named Costa del Silencio for hotels surrounded by beautiful gardens that are only a stone's throw from the glistening ocean. Couples and families looking for plenty of first-class facilities need look no further than the gorgeous resort town of Costa Adeje. Keep the kids occupied in popular Los Cristianos with an extensive range of activities to try, as well as a gorgeous on-site swimming pools, or stunning San Blas environmental reserve for a bit of luxury with plenty of outdoor activities.

Beautiful Natural Landscapes

Tenerife holidays provide you with an amazing destination to be explored on foot, with coastal paths, mountain climbs and forest hikes that offer walking experiences like no other. The north of the island offers miles upon miles of stunning walking routes through bold mountains, lush valleys and along stunning beaches. It is also here where you can find water parks in Costa Adeje which also offers access to Mount Teide - the highest point in Spain. The volcanic activity over the past few centuries has created a maze of underwater caves and lava tubes to explore, which are home to hundreds of different varieties of sea life, just some of the amazing things to do and see on your holidays in Tenerife.

The south is the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. Spend your days at theme parks such as Loro Parque and Jungle Park las Aguillas, and make sure you go whale and dolphin watching. If you love golf, there are some excellent courses, especially in Golf Del Sur where you can laze the days away improving your handicap. There’s a fantastic choice of resorts during holidays to Tenerife where you can put your feet up and relax, especially with the great views of the coast from Playa de las Americas with its eight beaches, to the much quieter Los Cristianos where you can watch dolphins from a beautiful harbour, or catch the ferry to the stunning island of La Gomera.

Winter Sun

Only a short four-hour flight from the UK, this year-round destination has all you could want for from a sun, sea and sand holiday, plus much more. It is also home to Mount Teide, the highest point in Spain and third highest volcano in the world. Siam Park in Tenerife is one of Europe's largest water parks.

The temperature here rarely drops below 17 centigrade even in winter months. The average sea temperature of 20 centigrade, combined with the crystal-clear waters and stunning volcanic underwater landscape, make it an ideal destination for adventurers as well as sun worshippers.

You could even head here for Christmas or New Year and enjoy an alternative Christmas Day on the beach. Many hotels will offer a Christmas lunch and have their own New Year's Eve parties.

Family Beaches

Las Vistas beach is a long golden stretch that connects two of the most popular resorts on the island, Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos. It is perfect for families as it has a large breakwater that shelters the beach. The shallow waters are calm and the soft sand makes it perfect for younger swimmers and paddling tots.

Another great family beach is El Puertito, which is great for snorkelling and has a black sand beach, near to Playa de las Americas.

Other resorts with family-friendly beaches:

  • Costa Adeje
  • Puerto de Santiago

Hotels on the Beach

What could be better than stepping out of your hotel right onto the beach? We have a choice of hotels that fit the bill and are the perfect place to stay on a beach holiday in Tenerife.

The Hotel Blue Sea Interpalace is just steps away from the beach in Puerto de la Cruz as well as being a short walk from the town centre. This hotel is perfect for couples and families.

The Hotel Dream Gran Tacande overlooks the beach of Playa del Duque and is the ultimate destination for a romantic, luxury beach break in Tenerife.

Be sure to take a look at our great range of Iberostar hotels, located by the coast to make sure you get the most out of your getaway in the sun.

Tenerife Water Sports

If you want a beach holiday that is a little more active, then you will be able to find plenty of water sports on offer in Tenerife. Whether you want to explore the underwater world by snorkelling or scuba diving, or view the beaches from above by parascending, you will find the perfect water sport for you.

El Medano beach, near Arrecife, is the best beach on the island for wind surfing and often hosts the world championships.
