One of the great things about a holiday in Tenerife is that it can be whatever you want it to be. From a strenuous hiking break in the mountains to non-stop nights out, lazy days on the beach to family fun in the sun, there are plenty of ways to enjoy a Tenerife holiday.
For those seeking a loud and lively escape, Tenerife’s southern region is the place to be. Try non-stop Playa de las Americas, or head to the bustling town of Los Cristianos – once a quiet fishing village that has grown into a popular holiday resort – to enjoy a pleasant break with plenty of local attractions and amenities.
Los Cristianos generally offers a great halfway point between lively and laid-back. It’s a large resort on the island’s popular south coast, so it’s got a pleasant buzz and it’s also just a short taxi ride from the bright lights of Playa de las Americas, should you fancy something a little more upbeat. On the other hand, there are plenty of places to slope off and enjoy a quiet hour or two, be it on the beach or further along the coast.
You can find hotels at http://en.tenerife.com/ for Los Cristianos, Playa de las Americas, or in fact any of Tenerife’s main holiday boltholes. And for those who like a quiet escape where they can really get away from it all, Playa San Juan makes a great retreat.
In Playa San Juan, life is all about taking it easy. It’s based on the southwest coast in Guía de Isora, and offers a charming small-town feel with a lovely harbour and plenty of great places to stay. Check out Tenerife.com for Playa San Juan hotels, and take your pick between self-catering apartments and great family-friendly hotels.
So whatever you fancy, whether it’s bustling Los Cristianos or lovely, laid-back Playa San Juan, you can be pretty sure that Tenerife has got something that ticks all the right boxes.
