Tenerife Holidays 2020
Take short flights from the UK and you’ll suddenly find yourself in the glorious subtropical conditions of Tenerife, a small yet perfectly formed Canary Island just off the coast of Morocco.
What kind of holiday does Tenerife offer?
A holiday to Tenerife in 2020 packs an absolute wealth of fun stuff to do and great places to stay.
Whether that be partying ‘till dawn with friends in Playa de las Americas, hiking across Teide National Park and seeing the dormant volcano, or exploring the immensely popular Costa Adeje and Los Cristianos.
Tenerife offers a range of holiday experiences, including resorts with kid’s clubs, restaurants and pools onsite; great for a family holiday.
Tenerife enjoys year-round sunshine, not to mention some of the most fabulous scenery in all of Europe. Snorkelling in the clear blue sea is a must, finished off with a nice glass of sangria as the sun sets. With our Tenerife holiday deals, all of this is at your fingertips.
When is the best time to visit Tenerife?
Due to Tenerife's proximity to the west coast of Africa, the island enjoys sunshine all year round. The summers can be very hot and dry, with the autumn and spring months providing more cooler conditions. You'll often find the south of the island has warmer weather due to Mount Teide (a dormant volcano) blocking rain and wind from reaching the south of the island.
Tenerife is great for:
- All inclusive holidays - package deals to Tenerife range from 5 star luxury to family-friendly fun. Blue Sea Puerto Resort has a spa and mini golf, while Oasis Park Splash Hotel offers a kids pool with mini waterpark.
- Family holidays - Tenerife has great weather all year round, so it’s the perfect spot for a last minute beach break or some winter sun. The south is best for sun, swimming and nightlife, whereas the north offers stunning hiking trails and a cool breeze.
- Cheap holidays - Costa Adeje is our top tip for a cheap Tenerife holiday, as it offers relaxation, charm and luxury at very affordable prices.

Tenerife is home to some of the world's finest holiday resorts and cheap holidays to Tenerife can provide a lot for your money. Costa Adeje is a resort with so much sway that holidaymakers will often choose Tenerife over its Canarian competitors like Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, just so they can experience some of the magic that makes Costa Adeje. Other popular Tenerife resorts include Playa de las Americas and Puerto de la Cruz.
Most visitors come for Tenerife's fabulous beaches and resorts, but Tenerife, a UNESCO biosphere reserve, has much more to offer. Its biggest attraction is Spain's largest peak, Mount Teide is a 3,718-metre active volcano which is the focal point of a huge national park. A cable car sways up to the summit of Teide in just ten minutes, offering spectacular panoramic views over all of Tenerife.
The island of Tenerife is rich in history and culture, and all of Tenerife has been designated a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO for its unique landscape. Explore the historic city of La Laguna, established in the 16th century, which is filled with remarkable buildings, including the cathedral and the opulent Magistrate's Residence (now the city hall). Among its museums is the fascinating Museum of the History of Tenerife and the modern Museum of Science and the Cosmos.
Little survives of the Guanche culture, who inhabited Tenerife before its conquest, but you can visit the Cave of the Guanches, near Icod de Los Vinos, which was once part of a small village that was settled around the 6th century BC. The Guanche culture lives on in the local cuisine and in the traditional games and sports (such as stone throwing, battles with staves and cart-pulling) that still take place in the island's villages.
Tenerife is now a major cultural centre, and its current capital, Santa Cruz, is home to the Auditorio de Tenerife, which was designed by starchitect Santiago Calatrava and inspired by the Sydney Opera House. It hosts an excellent programme of music, opera, theatre and dance. Santa Cruz also boasts the Tenerife Espacio de Las Artes (TEA), which puts on regular top-class art exhibitions.
