A holiday in Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, has it all: bustling resorts, beautiful nature, year-round sunshine and plenty to do. At the centre of Tenerife stands soaring Mount Teide, the highest peak in Spain and a natural divider for the island. South Tenerife is more developed, with large resorts like Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos home busy beaches, bars, restaurants and water parks. In north Tenerife, the pace of life is more sedate; Tenerife's first holiday resort, Puerto de la Cruz has black sandy beaches and a huge lido, while the surrounding countryside is lush and unspoilt. There are a wide range of Tenerife hotels and apartments to choose from in all resorts. Holidays in Tenerife are as lively or relaxing as you want them to be – and what’s more it’s closer than you think, with a flight to Tenerife taking only 4 hours from most UK departure airports!

The weather in Tenerife is warm and sunny almost all year round, with temperatures ranging from the late teens in winter to above the mid twenties in the summer. The island is Spanish, but it's actually located close to the Atlantic coast of North Africa, which explains why it's sunny even in winter. Mount Teide divides the island in two, with the south enjoying drier, warmer winters than the slightly cooler, wetter north. November and December are the rainiest months, but the long, warm days mean Tenerife's still a great destination for a dose of winter sun.
Things to see & do

You might think holidays in Tenerife are all about laying back and enjoying that sunshine, but there's much more to do besides. Take the cable car up Mount Teide and marvel at the spectacular national park that surrounds this stunning peak.
