An Island of Opportunity

You are spoilt for choice when deciding where to stay in Tenerife, as the island is home to two distinct sections, 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.

An Island of Opportunity

The north of the island offers miles upon miles of stunning walking routes through bold mountains, lush valleys and along stunning beaches. Here you can find water parks in Costa Adeje and offers access to Mount Teide - the highest point in Spain.

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 in the region to put your feet up and relax in with great views of the coast. Playa de las Americas has eight beaches offering your pick of top water sports, and an enviable choice of bars, restaurants and clubs to enjoy, while Los Cristianos is the perfect destination for a quieter holiday where you can watch dolphins from a beautiful harbour, or catch the ferry to the stunning island of La Gomera. If you are after lively, active breaks, then head to the capital of the island, Santa Cruz, where your Tenerife holidays will be full of culture and sightseeing.

Out and About

Tenerife boasts a huge range of attractions including a number of theme parks on the island, the biggest being Siam Park. Come here to see the Thai-themed, waterslide extravaganza complete with thrilling rides and a floating restaurant and Thai market to boot. 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 types of sea life.

This is an amazing destination to be explored on foot, with coastal paths, mountain climbs and forest hikes. The island's volcanic landscape and micro climates offer walking experiences like no other. See our things to do guide for even more inspiration on exploring the island.

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
