Tenerife is bathed in the suns rays all year round, Tenerife might be closer to Africa than Spain but the mood is definitely Spanish - easygoing and calm in the daytime, the pace warms up after the sun goes down.
The Tenerife Beaches are spectacularly black, even so there are some golden sandy beaches lined with palm trees of which have been bought from the Sahara Desert for your enjoyment! Clear, warm, seas are just perfect for water sports and swimming – even though you may prefer Puerto de la Cruz’s “Lido Martianez” as an appealing substitute, with it’s synthetically made lava rock islands, salt water lagoons and sunbathing terraces.
The Tenerife holiday resorts are lively after the sun sets. A large choice of restaurants and bars offer customary Canarian specialties and Spanish tapas but if you're after something more formal you are certain to find something to satisfy including your much loved fast food delights! Nightlife is high-spirited with discos and clubs keeping up a frantic tempo until the early hours particularly in the active Playa de las Americas.
Want a change of surroundings? Inland, Tenerife is strikingly diverse. It's worth draging yourself away from the seaside resorts to wander around the rural hillside villages and towns and bizarre landscapes of banana plantations, pine forests and abnormal lava-rock with giant cacti. Take an memorable journey to Mount Teide in the centre of the island. It's notorious as the Jewel in the Canary Island’s crown and is Spain's highest mountain and among the world's biggest volcanic craters.
A Tenerife holiday is a great choice for younger people and families and has been popular with holidaymakers for a long time, particularly those seeking a vigorous atmosphere and almost constant sunshine which you will get both of in Tenerife.
