Tenerife is the largest and most developed Canary Island. Attractive beaches, watersports and exciting adventures to Loro Parque, Siam Park and the cliffs of Los Gigantes make holidays to Tenerife popular year after year, offering activities for everyone to enjoy. It’s an island of two halves, with Spain’s highest mountain dividing the lush tropical north from the rocky south.

Prices start from £279

A trio of lively resorts – Costa Adeje, Playa De Las Americas and Los Cristianos – covers the south-west corner of Tenerife with fine sandy beaches. The island’s pleasant capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, lies in the shelter of the Anaga Mountains that spread towards the north-western tip. Old fishing villages like San Andrés dot the coastline, offering fresh seafood in waterside restaurants. Head north past the white peak of Mount Teide and you come to dreamy La Orotova, a beautifully preserved 17th-century town of pretty pastel colours. Just beyond is attractive Puerto de la Cruz, a popular tourist spot for more than a century.
