It’s no surprise holidays to Tenerife are so popular with Brits. The island offers up huge beaches, year-round sunshine and city-sized resorts.
A Tenerife Cruise & Stay holiday delivers year-round great weather and an incredible range of experiences – this classic Canary Island destination is the ideal start or end to your break.
Holiday capital of the archipelago
As the biggest and arguably best of the Canary Islands, Tenerife is a real capital of leisure. It attracts around five million tourists each year for good reason, with All-Inclusive resorts and a vibrant nightlife. But delve a little deeper and you'll discover the fascinating history of the island, its breath-taking natural wonders and a wealth of activity options that combine to rival holiday destinations across the world.
The island’s coast boasts a glorious coastline, a wealth of water sports activities and charming hidden coves. One of the largest natural beaches on the island is Playa Tejita, overlooked by the stunning Montaña Roja (Red Mountain). Another must-visit place is Puerto de la Cruz's Garden Beach, lined by a bright botanic garden to complement the palm trees and volcanic sand.
A natural paradise
With its striking volcanic landscape, Tenerife is ideal for an adventurous walking holiday. Overlooking the entire island is Teide National Park, the highest elevation of Spain and a World Heritage Site. At the north-east tip of Tenerife is Macizo de Anaga, a Biosphere Reserve that is home to the largest number of endemic species in Europe.
Fun for all ages
One of Tenerife's strong points is its variety. Children - and the young at heart - will love fun-packed attractions like waterparks and Loro Parque wildlife park. Young adults will find fun at the island's bars and clubs or events like the Medieval Night. Whether you're planning to kick-start or top off your cruise holiday in Tenerife, all of your group will be happy.

Playa de las Americas►
Set on Tenerife’s southwest coast, Playa de las Americas is a purpose-built resort that comes with great clubbing credentials. The year-round sun and multiple sandy beaches also pull in the Brit crowds. And then there are the duty-free shops, some great tapas restaurants, a waterpark on the doorstep and the upmarket resort of Los Cristianos just next door.
Playa de la Arena►
You can leave the hustle and bustle behind at Playa de la Arena. This small, quiet place on Tenerife’s west coast takes things gently, from the uncrowded beach to the low-key bars and restaurants. You’re also well placed for some great walks along rugged coastline and through volcanic landscapes – and close to some of the island’s best sights.
Apparently the Beckhams are big fans of Costa Adeje, on Tenerife’s south coast. It’s hardly surprising, what with the luxury villas, five-star hotels, designer shopping and waterfront restaurants. And the place has even got its own waterfall. It’s all about laidback sophistication here – though the party bars and clubs of Playa de las Americas are just a stone’s throw away should you want them.
