Tenerife

The Island of Eternal Sunshine

Tenerife is located just off the West Coast of Africa - and is arguably the most well known of the Canary Islands. With an excellent year round climate, Tenerife is one of the most popular resorts for people looking for year round sun and family enjoyment.

Tenerife itself contains a variety of enviroments within the Island - from the misty, and at times snowy, peaks of Mount Teide down to the bearably hot warmth of the beaches in the South, Tenerife really does have something for everyone.

Whether you're after a nice relaxing beach holiday, or a more active adventure type holiday, everything is catered for on Tenerife.

Theres also plenty to do on days out and excursions from your resort, whether you are interested in cultural activities in Tenerife - or Tenerife theme parks. Tenerife boasts the claim of having the largest waterpark in Europe, which is no mean feat - and there are plenty of animal parks on Tenerife, where you can see some of the finest animals in their natural habitats.

Tenerife contains plenty of sporting activities too, for the more active holiday maker, with a massive choice of Golf Courses dotted around the Island. If you're after watersports, then a large majority of the beaches in Tenerife offer Scuba Diving, Paragliding and much more. Add to this the trips up to the height of Mount Teide and the wealth of walking and hiking excursions available and you'll see that there is plenty to keep everyone happy on a Tenerife Holiday.

Finally, in February, the annual Mardi Gras Carnival Fiesta is held in Tenerife. These have been compared to the carnivals in Rio de Janeiro and New Orleans in terms of the size and brilliance of the celebrations. If you're on the Island in February, this is an event not to be missed!
