When to Visit?
Tenerife prides itself on its year-round tropical climate with temperatures rarely plummeting lower than 19 degrees, even in the mid-winter months. From the winter, the temperatures slowly rise reaching heights of up to 29 degrees in the summer months. The almost guaranteed heat across Tenerife is one of the islands most significant selling points, as visitors continue to escape colder climates at home and decide to holiday all year round.
How to get there?
Tenerife is one of the Canary Islands meaning that it is only accessible by air or by sea from neighbouring islands and mainland Spain. Though there are two international airports on the island, the busiest is Tenerife South Airport, with direct and frequent flights to many cities across the UK. The airport offers car rental services meaning you can explore the entirety of this paradise island at your own speed.
The well preserved historic capital of Santa Cruz is the most colourful city across the island. From a palm tree-studded boulevard to the beautiful architecture of the Plaza de España, Santa Cruz offers something for every visitor. The most famous attraction takes place just before Lent and is the most ‘Brazilian' of all the Spanish festivities. In this week of carnivalesque spirit, the city's streets fill with even more colour, as people flock to join the fiesta in their most extravagant costumes. Book a holiday villa in Santa Cruz in advance if you are planning to go during the time of this globally recognised festival.
Tenerife Food and Culture Tips
Tenerife embraces the authenticity of food which is original to The Canaries, from Rancho Canario which is a hearty meat and noodle soup and the rich flavours of Pollo Al Salmorejo, to the various tapas dishes which link the island to its Spanish roots, you certainly won't be returning to your holiday rental feeling hungry. Though Tenerife has no shortage of traditional restaurants, there is no reason why you can't try your hand at Canarian cooking while staying in a self-catered apartment. As Tenerife is a Spanish island, it is unsurprising that the locals speak Spanish, so brush on some key phrases before you travel.
The Magnificent Mount Teide
Visitors flock to Tenerife to be drenched by the year-round sun on the islands glorious beaches and to come face to face with whales in the surrounding ocean. Though this destination boasts some of the most scenic views of The Atlantic coast, there is nothing quite as impressive as the literal peak of the island, that is the dormant volcano of Mount Teide. This volcano offers the tenth highest volcanic peak in the world, but what draws the excitement to this World Heritage Site is the fact that the volcano is active. Showcasing a natural lava flow, makes Mount Teide the biggest attraction across the whole of the Canary Islands. Hiking even just some part of the renewed site is a must for any visitor who feels able, as you are guaranteed to experience the most exceptional panoramic views from the highest point in Spain. Choose a central holiday villa in a nearby resort such as Vilaflor, where you can leave your accommodation early and spend a full day exploring the site.

There are countless opportunities to immerse yourself in the best outdoor activities which this Atlantic island has to offer. Delve into the deep oceanic waters and check out some of the islands underwater creatures in a scuba diving experience or catch the waves in the trendy resort of Puerto de Santiago.
