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.
