The largest and most recognised of the Canary Islands, the beautiful island of Tenerife is the perfect choice for a luxurious beach holiday, whatever the season.
Blessed with year-round sunshine, glorious spring-like weather, top-quality hotels and first-rate services, as well as a huge diversity of stunning natural landscapes and unique experiences to enjoy, it’s no surprise that Tenerife remains a firm favourite on the short-haul holiday scene.
From gorgeous beaches and vibrant nightlife to tropical forests and stunning volcanic landscape, Tenerife is a veritable island of contrasts, and it’s all just four hours away.
Whether you’re looking for a lavish 5 Star hotel or a charming boutique property, Tenerife offers an ever-growing array of exquisite accommodation to impress even the most discerning of travellers.
Renowned for their incredible service levels, first-class facilities, superb dining options and outstanding locations, Tenerife is home to some seriously opulent resorts. Together with a selection of exclusive services, including award-winning spas, shimmering infinity pools, championship golf courses, VIP tours and chauffeur-driven limousine transfers, a stylish escape awaits.
With over 70 kilometers of glorious beachfront and one of the best climates in the world, Tenerife’s sun-drenched shores are perhaps the main reason why holidaymakers flock to the island year after year. With a stunning coastline that varies dramatically from the soft vanilla sands of glamorous Playa del Duque on the south coast to the dramatic dark volcanic sands at Playa de las Arenas on the quieter west coast, Tenerife is a true beach lover’s paradise.
Prise yourself away from sipping a glass of local wine on your plush sun lounger and you’ll soon discover that there’s so much more to this Canarian gem than meets the eye. An island strewn with traditional fishing villages, lush banana plantations, stunning colonial architecture and dramatic volcanic peaks, a wealth of unforgettable experiences await here.
Take the scenic cable car up majestic Mount Teide, the highest peak in Spain, and drink in the breath-taking views over the wild volcanic landscape and the Canarian archipelago. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Teide National Park is also becoming increasingly popular for stargazers, with the relatively clear nights ensuring a full sky of dazzling stars to marvel at.
If you are a wildlife lover, take a whale watching trip off the stunning south-west coast, where sightings of bottle-nose dolphins and pilot whales are more or less guaranteed all year round, or check out the animal conservation programme at Loro Parque.
Foodies will be in their element in Tenerife with top-quality cuisine and excellent local wines to be found in a variety of unique establishments. From the island’s five Michelin-starred restaurants to atmospheric tapas bars, there’s something to suit every mood and occasion.
There’s also plenty of cultural authenticity to be found on Tenerife, especially in the north of the island in the traditional Spanish towns such as Garachico, La Orotava and Puerto de la Cruz.
For a real taste of Tenerife, head to the capital of Santa Cruz and the UNESCO-listed university city of La Laguna. Explore the old-world colonial architecture, indulge in some retail therapy, delve into some delicious traditional Canarian tapas or simply relax with a coffee in a sun-kissed plaza.
