Luxury Tenerife Holidays

Golden shores and volcanic landscapes

Tenerife

With its sandy beaches, diverse scenery and year-round sunshine (even in January, you can expect the mercury to hit 20 degrees), Tenerife has been drawing in holidaymakers for decades.

The south is where you'll find the bigger resorts like Costa Adeje, Playa Paraiso and Playa de las Americas, as well as the island’s best beaches. The north of the island, meanwhile, showcases a lush landscape and a more traditional feel (particularly during February’s colourful carnival celebrations).

Standing tall in the centre of the island is Mount Teide, Spain's highest peak. It's set in a UNESCO-listed national park, which is covered in moon-like lava formations.

The island has plenty to keep you busy, from golf courses and whale-watching trips (pilot whales, sperm whales and bottlenose dolphins cruise the waters around here), to mountain hikes. Tenerife also flaunts one of Europe's biggest waterparks, Thai-inspired Siam Park.

Why not try whale and dolphin watching? The clear waters off Los Gigantes are home to a variety of species of whales and dolphins - particularly bottlenose dolphins and pilot whales. Take a boat to go and try and spot them in their natural habitat. We can’t guarantee a sighting, but we know the odds are pretty good!

Destinations in Tenerife
Costa Adeje
Costa Adeje drapes itself over the sheer south-west coast of Tenerife. It’s the leisurely neighbour of Playa de las Americas, offering clifftop hotels above and petite sandy beaches below.
Guia De Isora
Westerly Guia de Isora stretches from the inland town centre, with its whitewashed church and green-shuttered houses, to the beach-lined coast. It dishes up designer hotels along the way, too.
Playa De Las Americas
Playa de las Americas offers a full deck of award-winning beaches, no-holds-barred hotels and evening shows that’s kept it on the map since the 1960s.
Playa Paraiso
Follow the snaking coastline north from Costa Adeje, and you’ll stumble across Playa Paraiso – a collection of high-end hotels and cliffside bars arranged around deep-cut sandy bays.
Puerto De La Cruz
Puerto de la Cruz was once a retreat for well-heeled Victorians. It still has a polished look, laying out a smart promenade alongside volcanic beaches.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Tenerife is around 4 hours 30 minutes. 

When to go

Tenerife enjoys a classic Canarian climate: hot sunshine, all year round. You’ll get around 11 hours of sunshine a day throughout summer, which starts warming up around April and regularly pushes into the low 30s around July. Even in the off season, it’s unlikely to fall below the low-to-mid teens. 

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain. 

Tipping

Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
