There’s your first glimpse of Mount Teide from one of Costa Adeje’s Blue Flag beaches, late-night shopping along boardwalks filled with designer shops and al fresco dining on terraces overlooking the Atlantic. Beaches of black and gold line this volcanic island, skies are so clear rumour has it you can see Saturn’s rings from Mount Teide National Park, and a climate of ‘Eternal Spring’ means basking on a beach and getting out on crystal clear waters are where most of the fun is to be had.
Holidays to Tenerife can be as lively or tranquil as you like. Dance until the early hours along Playa de las Americas strip, cocoon yourself in a decadent spa or bring the kids along to luxury family-friendly hotels where plenty of land and water activities keep little ones occupied and teenagers away from their phone. You’ll find Instagram-worthy content in capital Santa Cruz with its space-age style opera house and then colonial architecture and traditional tapas in La Laguna. One moment you’ll be spotting wild pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins, the next hiking through laurel forests, lava fields and vineyards. Urban strips of sand are lined with palm trees and spiky cacti, beaches are strung with straw-topped parasols under a burning sun and dramatic cliffs lead out to secluded rocky coves.
