Holidays to Tenerife
Tenerife holidays have been a staple of British life since the 19th century, when Queen Victoria went there to escape the gloomy weather. With the island just a few hours flying time away and year-round sunshine practically guaranteed, Tenerife package holidays are just as popular today. Here at Co-operative Travel, we have bargain holidays to Tenerife’s most popular resorts.
Just 300 kilometres from the North African coast, Tenerife enjoys an average temperature of around 23 degrees Celsius throughout the year. The largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife enjoys a variable climate which has been likened to that of the Galapagos Islands, allowing many species of fauna and flora to flourish. People book last minute Tenerife holidays for a variety of reasons. For some, it’s the superb beaches and watersports; for others, it’s the chance to explore natural wonders like Mount Teide National Park, home to the third largest volcano in the world. With 217 miles of coastline, there’s no shortage of resorts to book late deals in Tenerife, with a wide selection of hotels, villas and apartments at down-to-earth prices.
From the Victorian elegance of Puerto de la Cruz, to the lively ambience of purpose-built Playa de las Americas, there are cheap Tenerife holidays to suit every holidaymaker. If you enjoy a cosmopolitan atmosphere with plenty of shops and restaurants, the capital city of Santa Cruz, on the northeast coast, may suit. With a mile-long beach of golden sand and a striking mountain backdrop, the city also has many historic attractions and cultural events – including the famous Tenerife Carnival at Easter. The nearby original capital of La Laguna is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If culture is your kind of thing, Tenerife package holidays at Las Caletillas place you a stone’s throw from the mysterious Guimar Step Pyramids – and some of Tenerife’s prettiest beaches.
