Tenerife Hotels and Apartments
Tenerife is the largest of the islands. The large, lively resorts in the south cater for tourists from across Europe. There are large, safe, beaches, lots of water and land based activities and lively nights to be had. The most popular resorts are Playa de Las Americas and the more refined Los Cristianos. Head west and the more recently developed Costa Adeje provides a more luxurious Tenerife holiday.
The rugged interior of the island provides a stark contrast with the soft sand of the south. The impressive Mount Teide stands in the middle of the island. Teide is an active volcano and Spain’s highest mountain at 3718 metres. The north coast is home to the islands second airport and the picturesque resort of Puerto de la Cruz.
Beautiful and rugged
Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands. This beautiful and rugged island is home to some of the most popular holiday resorts in Europe. The lively southern coastline is home to Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos as well as the main airport – Tenerife South (TFS). The more tranquil and lush north of the island is home to Puerto de la Cruz and Tenerife’s second airport - Tenerife North (TFN).
Volcanic high point
The more rugged southern coast is split from the lush north by a significant volcanic mountain range. Mount Teide sits proudly at the heart of this range and is the highest point in Spain at over 12,000 ft. Whether staying north or south of this point, make the time for a day trip.
Busy day and night
A Tenerife holiday is likely to focus on the sunshine and beaches of the south. By day the beaches of Playa de Las Americas and Los Cristianos are busy with visitors soaking up the sun and enjoying the refreshing Atlantic waves. The vibrant heart of Playa de Las Americas is also home to a seemingly unlimited number of bars, restaurants and nightclubs.
This UNESCO World Heritage site should be top of your local ‘to do’ list. The impressive peak of Mount Teide stands at over 12, 000 feet. The volcano is now dormant but you can marvel at the lava fields and landscape surrounding the mountain. Don’t forget your camera!
