Tenerife's quietest corner
Secluded and peaceful, a holiday to Guia de Isora is where you take a step back from the world. The springboard to Tenerife’s natural wonders, the resort has Mount Teide’s national park on its doorstep and a beautiful rugged coastline.
The rocky outcrops, underwater caves and pristine waters are the perfect spot for scuba diving, while Playa de San Juan offers a more typical Canarian beach with a colourful seafront promenade.
Golfers are in luck – Guia de Isora is around half an hour’s drive from the spectacular ABAMA Golf Course, which sprawls for almost four miles past 22 lakes, waterfalls and white-sand bunkers, with stunning sea views from the greens.
Flight time from the UK to Tenerife is around 4 hours 30 minutes.
Transfer time from Tenerife South airport to Guia de Isora is approximately 35 minutes.
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.
