The biggest and best-known of the Canary Islands, Tenerife definitely has something special to offer everyone in need of a well-earned holiday. What’s more if you choose to step beyond the sun loungers and stunning beaches, you’ll find a cultured island full of extraordinary diversity.
With a huge selection of fantastic resorts, tourists often head to the south of this island where you certainly will be spoilt for choice. Playa de las Americas is a definite firm favourite with several beaches, superb tapas restaurants and potentially the best nightlife on the island as well as the Siam Park Waterpark being close by, whose slides and lazy river are a popular hit with tourists. If you prefer something even more relaxed then why not try Playa de la Arena for a palm tree lined promenade, cosy restaurants and its natural black sand beach. These are just two of the fantastic resorts on the island waiting to be discovered.
You could easily spend your time simply relaxing on one of the islands fantastic beaches but there is more to this island than it’s fabulous shore line. Head north to its fabulous capital Santa Cruz where you will find countless boutiques and cultural landmarks. If you happen to go in February, you will be treated to the vibrant and sultry Carnival which is celebrated in most towns but it’s the capital which sees the extravaganza.
Venture inland and the beautiful beaches turn into outstanding mountains and volcanoes; in fact recently a walking festival began to celebrate the island’s fantastic landscape and hiking trails. What’s more, a trip inland is not complete without taking a cable car up to Spain’s tallest mountain, snow-draped Pico del Teide or a visit to the beautiful village of Masca set in the Teno Mountains.To put it simply, it's a perfect holiday destination for people of all ages and with different holiday desires.
