- Tenerife Luxury holidays
The Canary Island of Tenerife has the largest population and the greatest land area in the archipelago, despite the implications of its neighbour Gran Canaria's name. It also has the busiest tourist market, with five million visitors each year, and is welcoming to everyone from groups of younger people looking for entertainment and nightlife, to families with small children, and even elderly couples seeking a pleasant climate outside of the summer season - or ageing sun worshippers who can still handle the heat of the peak season too. All are welcome, and this can create a sense of community among holidaymakers even during the span of a short break.
Teide up on Tenerife
The imposing landmark of Mount Teide is hard to ignore, as it is visible on the horizon from almost anywhere on the island - and likewise, the whole of Tenerife can be seen by turning 360 degrees at its summit. Teide National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an important location for astronomical observations, and access may be restricted while important scientific work is being carried out. The park as a whole is one of the most visited in the world, ranking in the top ten, and is the single most visited in Spain and in the whole of Europe, with about three million people heading to its volcanic landscape each year.
Let your hair down on Tenerife
The UK is Tenerife's largest tourism market, and the south of the island is the main destination. Here the resorts have developed to cater especially for an English-speaking crowd in the summertime, with tourist-friendly menus too, if you don't want to try the local cuisine every day of your stay.
When should I visit Tenerife?
Tenerife's average temperatures are not the most scorching in the world, with summer days at about 25°C, equivalent to the hottest days you're likely to get in the UK at the same time of year. However, very hot weather is a possibility, taking this as high as 40°C and even above. In the winter, the mercury stays around 20°C or just below, and for many people this makes an out-of-season trip more tempting, as it avoids the full fury of the island's hottest days while offering a great refuge from a rainy England in the autumn, winter or spring seasons.
