Luxury Tenerife Holidays

Golden shores and volcanic landscapes

Holidays in Tenerife have been a favourite with the British since the reign of Queen Victoria, and with its year round sunshine, spectacular beaches and huge resorts it’s easy to see why. As one of Spain’s Canary Islands, located off the west coast of Africa, Tenerife benefits from the warmth of the African climate and a mingling of cultures. Whether you’re travelling with your family, on a romantic couple’s holiday or in a group you’ll find wonderful attractions waiting for you here.

For a lively resort with amenities for visitors of all ages, choose a holiday in Costa Adeje. It's home to large swathes of golden sands, with a choice of watersports as well as restaurants, bars, and luxury hotels. For boutique hotels, rugged cliffs, and a sense of history Guia de Isora is perfect, while Puerto de la Cruz is home to the island’s iconic black sandy beaches.

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.
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


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.

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!
