Cheap Holidays to Tenerife

The Beaches

The beaches in the south of Tenerife are preferred by tourists, mainly because the south enjoys more hours of sunshine than in the north, most of these beaches have imported sand and provide a good selection of watersports. El Medano is one of the best natural beaches on the island, about 20km from Playa de las Americas, this beach has 2km of white sand and is a good spot for windsurfing. In the north by Santa Cruz there is Playa las Teresitas with imported sands or if you don't mind black, volcanic sand, Playa Jardin beach at Puerto de la Cruz is rarely crowded and there are plenty of cafes and bars lining the seafront.

The Resorts

The liveliest resort is Playa de las Americas offering easy access to the best choice of golf, waterparks, watersports and nightlife. Neighbouring Los Cristianos is joined by a promenade lined with restaurants offering everything from Chinese to fast food, bars, cafes and shops; and in the other direction is Costa Adeje, an off-shot of Las Americas but with a more family vibe. The main resort in the north of the island is Puerto de la Cruz and is home to the Loro Parque as well as a large saltwater lido.

Things To Do

Tenerife has a host of entertainment options of both the cultural and holiday fun kind, sure to keep all family members happy.
