Its south coast is holiday central. But there’s more to Tenerife than just beaches and bars including one showstopper of a volcano.|
As a holiday destination, Tenerife’s etched into our collective subconscious. And for good reason. With its year-round sunshine, good selection of beaches and sizzling nightlife, it knows how to throw a great getaway.
Most people head to the south of the island where you’ll find the ever-popular resorts of Playa De Las Americas and Los Cristianos. Think neon-lit strips, loads of British bars and golden sands imported from the Sahara. But that’s only the half of it.
There’s another side to the island, literally and metaphorically. Away from the south coast, you’ll find a wonderland of banana plantations, pine forests and volcanic landscapes. And set right at the heart is the towering peak of Mount Teide, a volcano that also happens to be the highest mountain in Spain.
The north of the island offers up resorts with more of a Spanish twist. Places like Puerto De La Cruz that mixes up modern hotels with colonial squares. And even though it’s the daddy of the Canaries size-wise, Tenerife’s really easy to get around.
Head up to the history-fest that is Guimar. Treat the kids to a day at Loro Parque, Aqualand or Siam Park, a water park that transports you to Thailand. And check out the seriously good shopping scene down in Santa Cruz. With all this on offer, it’s no wonder Tenerife trips off the tongue when the annual holiday debate rolls round.
