Holidays in Tenerife

The most popular Canary Island, Tenerife attracts over six million sun-seekers to its shores every year. So, it’s no surprise that the island has beach holidays down to an art. Ideal for beach lovers and adventure-seekers, you’ll find plenty to enjoy in Tenerife.

When is the best time to visit? Boasting warm temperatures, no matter the season, it’s always a good time to visit this beautiful island. If you’re searching for a cheap trip, try travelling outside the peak holiday season when the island is less crowded. Typically, March to May (excluding Easter) as well as October and November are the best times to visit Tenerife without breaking the bank.

Where is the best place to stay in Tenerife? Tenerife is an island of two halves. One half is buzzing beaches and lively resorts. The other is lush landscapes, national parks, and traditional towns.

The action-packed south is where much-loved resorts come alive. Expect chic shopping and a touch of glamour from Costa Adeje, cabaret crowd-pleasers and neon nights in Playa De Las Americas, and a charming marina packed with shorefront restaurants in Los Cristianos.

A step back to a more traditional beach break, the northern resorts of Puerto de la Cruz and Santa Cruz offer a more peaceful getaway. Escape to tucked-away resorts and quaint traditional villages. Enjoy tranquil beachside dining and sun-kissed days of wine-tasting and exploring old towns. If remote, laid-back luxury is your vibe - the north is perfect for you.

Food & Drink in the Canary Islands

Food & Drink in the Canary Islands

Tenerife combines Spanish flavours with more Venezuelan influences. Restaurants in the north of Tenerife serve up daily menus of traditional Canarian tapas, fresh seafood, and other regional specialities. Down south the main resorts offer a good mixture of local, international, and British cuisine.

If you’re interested in trying some local food, start easy with papas arrugadas aka wrinkled potatoes. Smothered in salt and served warm with a bowl of mojo sauce on the side, they change the potato game.
