It Rains In Spain

Wonderful Tenerife

Discover Tenerife

Talk about diversity. From soft sandy beaches and bustling family resorts to rugged clifftops and soaring mountains, there’s so much to love about Tenerife holidays.

You may be familiar with Tenerife’s reputation as a party island, and if you head to the resorts of Playa de las Americas or Los Cristianos in the south, you’ll understand why. During the summer months, these popular resorts spring into action with all manners of fun and shenanigans laid on both day and night. Along the beachfront you’ll find a bustling vibe with plenty of sunbeds, watersports and beach bars on offer. And in the towns themselves, things really hot up once the sun goes down with neon-lit pubs, bars and clubs that get the party started and it keep it going well into the early hours.

But of course, as any savvy traveller knows, there’s much more to Tenerife than booze and bars. Head north and enjoy the laid-back ambience of the island’s coastal communities, which fan out along the seafront and across the hills from the popular town of Puerto de la Cruz. Here it’s all about local traditions and Canarian culture, and while there’s plenty going on in terms of local things to see and so, it’s nothing like its contemporaries in the south.

In place of booming bars and all-night clubs are cosy tavernas and authentic Spanish restaurants. Where the beaches down south are crammed with bronzing bodies, lined up shoulder to shoulder, the northern shores offer a quieter ambience and a more rugged appeal, with craggy cliffs and dramatic sea views to stir the soul. When it’s time for some hustle and bustle, head to the capital city of Santa Cruz for a day of sightseeing, shopping, and to enjoy the local cuisine – of which there are plenty of top-notch restaurants to choose from.

With so much to see, do and discover in Tenerife, the only problem you’ll have is fitting it all in.

The Canary Islands: A Brief Lowdown

There’s no denying that the Canaries are a popular choice with British holidaymakers looking for a piece of sunshine. If you have found yourself in one of the more popular resorts during the peak times, you will know that they can be incredibly busy, lively and fun-filled.

Located just off the coast of Morocco, they provide beautiful climes no matter when you choose to travel.

The decision that you’re left with is which of the Canary Islands do you plump for? The majority of your choice will be based on what you want to gain from your holiday on these islands – is it a family friendly resort you’re after? A clubber’s paradise? Or complete tranquillity? Whatever you’re after, there’ll be something for you.

Tenerife

With Tenerife holidays, there’s something for everyone. Whether it’s the vibrant nightlife of Playa de las Americas or Los Cristianos, the family friendly beaches of the quieter resorts or the excursions to Mount Teide in the heart of a national park that float your boat, the island has plenty on offer.

Gran Canaria

Small and perfectly formed, Gran Canaria holidays continue to be incredibly popular with British families and are affordable, too. Trekking the Maspalomas Sand Dunes aboard a camel or a day at Palmitos Park would be ideal additions to any island itinerary.

Fuerteventura

Perfect for watersports enthusiasts, the wind conditions that encircle Fuerteventura are ideal for surfers and windsurfers looking to ride the crest. The island is also fabulous if all you want to do is chill out.

Lanzarote

From the natural landscapes of Timanfaya National Park to the quality beaches in the south, Lanzarote offers a great mix of authentic charm and welcoming atmosphere; perfect for couples and families, alike.
