If you're keen to work on your tan, choose from the resort's six beautiful dark sandy beaches for ultimate relaxation.

With winter temperatures reaching the mid-twenties, Playa de las Americas is also ideal to visit if you want to escape that cold British winter.

The stunning volcanic Mount Teide is only an hour away, so why not make a day of it and take a cable car up to the top and admire the stunning panoramic view.

There's a whole range of activities to get involved in during your holiday to the Canary Islands such as watersports and boat trips, making it ideal for couples, families and solo travellers. For family-friendly activities, visit the world famous Siam Park waterpark, or the smaller Aqualand waterpark in Costa Adeje and enjoy a fun-filled day. You can also stroll through Torviscas Market and pick up some bargains, or pop into the designer boutiques on an excursion to the capital of Santa Cruz.

The legendary nightlife in Playa de las Americas makes it ideal for party animals. Head to the seafront promenade to experience the bustling bars and nightclubs - the famous Veronicas strip is the place to be if you fancy letting your hair down! Although Playa de las Americas is great for a lively evening, you can also enjoy a quiet night in one of the many restaurants.
