Tempt yourselves with Tenerife Holidays

Take a relatively short flight from the UK and you’ll suddenly find yourself in the glorious sub-tropical conditions of Tenerife, a small yet perfectly formed island just off the coast of Morocco. For its size it packs in an absolute wealth of fun stuff to do, whether that be partying ‘till dawn with friends, hiking across a volcanic national park, sunbathing on a beach made of black sand or exploring ancient fishing villages and ports. Tenerife enjoys year-round sunshine tempered by a cool Atlantic breeze, not to mention some of the most fabulous scenery in all of Europe. 

Let us build your ideal Tenerife holiday right here at loveholidays.

Top Attractions

There’s not a lot you can’t do on holiday in Tenerife. The southern resort of Playa de Las Americas is great for groups of friends looking to soak up the sun by day then drink and dance along the strip of bars by night. The area is also home to several epic water parks, considered by many to be amongst the best in the world. Kids and grown ups will love hurtling down the slides at the Thai-themed Siam Park, or swimming in the shadow of the Sydney Opera House-inspired Auditorio de Tenerife near Santa Cruz. Intrepid adventurers will relish the opportunity to climb 1200m in under 10 minutes via cable car to the summit of the epic Mount Teide, whilst inquisitive explorers will find old time harbours, ports and villages around the island’s north side (Puerto de la Cruz and Santa Cruz de Tenerife are recommended).

You can also spend time with and ride camels at a dedicated reserve they share with donkeys, ducks, parrots and dogs, just minutes outside of Los Cristianos. Prepare for your holiday in Tenerife to serve up something a little out of the ordinary!

Wine and Dine

Wine and Dine

Being surrounded on all sides by the ocean, it’s unsurprising that seafood features pretty heavily on the menu in the tapas bars, cafes and restaurants of Tenerife. Food here is influenced in equal measures by the cuisine of Spain, Africa, Central America and the Caribbean. Grilled meats and fish, spicy stews, local cheeses, breads and vegetables are the order of the day, all to be washed down with the local wine that has been made here for centuries. There’s also a huge selection of Spanish beers, the ideal accompaniment for a day at the beach or night on the town. Food and drink go hand in hand with Tenerife holidays so if these float your boat you’ve come to the right place.

For Families

For Families

Tenerife is a hugely popular place for family holidays and for a good reason. With a warm climate that never gets too hot, an incredibly diverse range of activities to enjoy, and literally hundreds of beaches to spend a day at, kids and grown ups will end a holiday in Tenerife wanting to come back for more.

Adventurous groups can head for Tenerife Karting Club to whizz around the range of different tracks, whereas younger kids will love riding the donkeys at Animal Park Granja. Whale and dolphin cruises depart from the southern towns and sail up the coast on the lookout for that once-in-a-lifetime sighting. And of course, the thrills and spills of the island’s water parks are sure to keep you all entertained for hours on end.

Action and Adventure

Action and Adventure

There’s no shortage of adrenaline rushes to be had on a Tenerife holiday. Be it quad biking, water skiing, taking a jeep safari, hiking up a mountain or even paintballing, thrill seekers really are spoilt for choice here. You can take a three-hour quad safari from Las Americas up into the mountains behind, or for a real taste of the island wilderness take an open top jeep through the Teide national park ending up at the mountain’s summit, its sweeping views presenting a sight to behold. For something a little different there’s even El Castillo San Miguel, an ancient themed castle that hosts regular jousting and battle events between knights in shining armour, all for guests to enjoy over dinner.

Life's a Beach

Life's a Beach

Famed for its natural volcanic sands, particularly in the quieter northern part of the island, Tenerife is home to some truly unique beaches. Take Playa Jardin in Puerto de la Cruz for example; flanked by beautifully landscaped gardens (the literal translation is ‘garden beach’) and enjoying stunning views of the snow-capped Mount Teide, it’s a place where locals come to relax and enjoy huge fiestas in the summer. Playa de la Teresitas in Santa Cruz is one of those picture- perfect spots that you want to visit as soon as you see a photo of it. Imagine calm turquoise waters, golden Saharan sands, palm trees and of course a mountain backdrop and you’re pretty close.

Further south there’s plenty of great beaches that all the family will enjoy, such as those that line Costa Adeje, or the bar and restaurant-lined Playa las Vistas in Los Cristianos. 

Wherever you choose to visit on your Tenerife holiday, you’ll be sure to find a stunning beach to call your own.

Nightlife

The bright lights of Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos are rightly known as some of the best party spots in the Canary Islands, and are a prominent feature for groups of friends on a holiday in Tenerife. Tramps nightclub hosts regular sets from internationally renowned DJs, whereas Papagayo Beach Club is the kind of place where you can have lunch, enjoy a sunset cocktail and then party on till dawn in a great seaside setting. Head to the Costa Adeje for lively local bars offering live music and entertainment, such as St. Eugenes, or the sweet and soulful sounds of Soul Suite.

For Couples

For Couples

Many couples both young and old take their holidays in Tenerife, a popular destination for a romantic getaway. Costa Adeje, with its miles of golden beaches, stylish shops and picturesque bars and restaurants, is a place that couples naturally gravitate towards. Here you can go on Segway tours, take a ride in a helicopter and even swim with turtles at Playa del Duque.

For a spot of idyllic relaxation you could do worse than take a stroll round the Sitio Litre orchid garden in Puerto de la Cruz, or enjoy an open top bus tour around the ancient capital of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. And you’ll be glad to know there are plenty of made-for-couples sunset spots serving up beautiful food and drink to enjoy against the golden sky backdrop. Head for Casa Pancho on Playa de la Arena to enjoy one of the island’s best.

Culture

Culture

Rich with culture as diverse as the island itself, holidays in Tenerife can be filled with music, theatre, art and heritage. Home to the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra, The Auditorio de Tenerife in Santa Cruz was styled on the Sydney Opera House and is nestled into the seafront rocks. The Tenerife Espacio de Las Artes, more commonly known as TEA, is a large exhibition centre that houses an art gallery, photography collection and library. There’s also a wealth of museums to enjoy, covering all topics from science (Museum of Science & the Cosmos) through to military history and relations between Spain and America (Military Museum, Ibero-American Craft Museum).
