The most popular of the Canary Islands for English-speaking tourists, Tenerife and its main city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife are very popular pretty much all year round. The winter weather is a bit too mild for swimming on the beach, but it’s much nicer than anywhere in Europe itself. The most popular resort towns for sunshine seekers are Los Cristianos and Playa de la Americanos on the southern shore.

Tenerife is known as a bargain destination for middle-class Europeans, and particularly with Brits, with great package deals including hotels and airfare. Things here are generally cheaper than on the European continent, and usually a bit cheaper even than Spain’s mainland beach resorts on the Costa del Sol.

Those on the tightest budgets can certainly find bargains in hotels and restaurants if they need to, yet there are plenty of expensive choices mixed in as well. There are many short-term apartments available, with great deals in the quieter months.

weather advise for AmsterdamWeather advice

Tenerife has very pleasant and mild weather all year round, with virtually no threat of rain at any time. Winters are a bit too cool for the beach, and during July and August it can be quite hot during the day and even at night, but overall there isn’t much to fear or complain about.
