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 lively resorts with amenities for visitors of all ages, choose a holiday in Playa de las Americas or Costa Adeje. Both resorts are 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.
Book your luxury holidays in Tenerife and enjoy its many amenities. Choose from sprawling resorts full of large hotel complexes, restaurants, duty free shopping, and bars, or smaller towns located right on the beachfront. Golf courses are dotted throughout and provide you with spectacular views, as well as excellent club houses, while boat trips and whale watching tours are also available.

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