Tenerife is the largest island of the Canary Islands and a favourite with many a sun worshiper. But far beyond just its beach culture, the island is also popular for the extraordinary volcanic landscape, home to Pico del Teide: the highest point in Spain. Tenerife is also popular among water sports enthusiasts, culture lovers and partygoers alike.
There are plenty of 1- and 2-star hotels for those looking for a cheap but cheerful trip in the sun. These include family hotels and apartments, complete with wireless internet, and even all-inclusive resorts that have all your bases covered.
Tenerife’s 3-star accommodation includes several family hotels, a great selection of all-inclusive hotels, as well as sports and adventure hotels. Many of these include a private swimming pool and easy access to the beach. You will find almost all of them on the north and south coast of Tenerife, for example around Costa Adeje, Los Cristianos, Playa de las Americas and Puerto de Santiago.
Within the 4-star range you’re still spoilt for choice. These include spa hotels with attractions like saunas and Turkish baths, and family hotels, complete with child care to give wary parents a worry-free break. There are also a number of all-inclusive hotels and resorts serving great food and drink, all as part of the price. You can find 4-star accommodation spread all across the island.
The majority of the 5-star accommodation is located on the south and southwest coast of Tenerife, near Tenerife Airport and around Costa Adeje and Santa Cruz. You can choose between different hotel types, including luxury hotels, complete with indoor pools and personalised tour services, and design or boutique offerings with the most luxurious facilities available.
A stay in Tenerife is much more than just an opportunity to chill on the beach. One experience not to be missed is climbing the Teide. This dormant volcano, measuring 3718 meters above water level at the highest point, is the tallest point in the whole of Spain. Using the cable cars you can reach a height of 3350 meters, but those who want to view the crater must request a special permit to make their to the summit. Around the volcano is the Teide National Park, where it feel as if you’re on another planet, thanks to the green coloured sulfur.
For a culture trip visit the museums of Tenerife. The Museum of Dimas Coello in Candelaria is well worth a look, with Coello being one of the greatest artists to come from the island. Then there’s the archaeological museum in Puerto de la Cruz, which is a must.
In the spring Tenerife is in carnival mode, especially in Santa Cruz and Puerto de la Cruz where the Carnival of Santa Cruz is celebrated exuberantly. The colourful parade, complete with dancers and music is grand enough to challenge its fellow greats.
