Tenerife Holidays

Tenerife holidays can be as relaxing or as adventure packed as you would like to make them.  There are accommodation options to suit every budget and choices that suit single travellers, honeymooners or large families who want to stay together in a private villa.

Once blighted with the reputation of being nothing more than a cheap destination for chavvy stag parties, the tourist board has worked hard to highlight Tenerife’s unique charms of which there are many.

For those looking to relax there are natural and man-made beaches, some with beds and umbrellas to hire. The more adventurous will find coastal walks rewarded with coves and inlets in which to relax with a little less company from other tourists.

But not everyone wants to laze by the pool every day so for the more active or adventurous, there is hang gliding, windsurfing rafting bike, horse riding, golfing, rock climbing, hiking … and that is all in the daytime.

At night, Tenerife takes on another personality altogether. There are restaurants to suit every palette and every kind of pub and club you can imagine.
