Tenerife holidays

At a glance

Playa de las Americas
Playa de las Americas

Tenerife is an island of dazzling contrasts. From the dry, barren mountains in the south to the tropical splendour of the fertile valleys in the north which is dominated by the peak of Mount Teide. From tiny, unspoilt mountain villages to historical colonial towns and lively, sophisticated resorts. With an excellent year-round climate, Tenerife is a sun-worshipper's paradise. On the south of the island where the temperature is hotter, the fun revolves around the beaches and bustling resorts.

Flight time: About 4 hours, 30 mins approx. hours
