With its breathtaking volcanic landscape, pine tree covered hills and turquoise waters fringed by endless beaches, the Holiday Taxis team believe that Tenerife ticks all the boxes when it comes to good looks.
Set just off the Africa’s north coast, Tenerife is the biggest of the twelve Canary Islands. it has been popular with UK holidaymakers for decades now, largely because of its balmy year round temperatures and friendly resorts. Ideal for the budget traveller, Tenerife is packed full of great value accommodation, restaurants and bars, and you’ll find that you don’t need much cash in your pocket to have a fabulous and very memorable holiday.
As well as wonderful beaches, Tenerife boasts a plethora of fascinating cultural and historical sites (such as mighty La Laguna Cathedral), high-octane activities, plus of course a vibrant and energetic night scene. If you want to really explore the island, consider venturing away from the coast towards the interior where you will discover quaint Canarian whitewashed villages and the famously moonlike landscape of the Teide National Park with its bona fide volcano.
Holidays in Tenerife are ideal for all ages and all budgets. This is a friendly inclusive destination that offers something for everyone. If wildlife is your thing, don’t miss a day out at Loro Parque. This impressive aquarium and animal park is perhaps one of the island’s most remarkable attractions and here you will be able to see tigers, gorillas, orca whales, parrot and penguins, all for a very reasonable entry fee.
Younger visitors (and anyone who is ‘young at heart’) will adore the awesome waterpark and adventure playground at Siam Park. Here you’ll find a positive plethora of pools and rides aimed at all ages. Day visit passes are great value for money, so don’t be surprised if you’re tempted to go back day after day…
One massive advantage in terms of cost that Tenerife offers is the fact that a huge number of chartered fights head out there each and every day, making it a cheaper destination to get to than many European countries.
Because the weather is reliable all year round (the average temperature is 24 degrees and the sea is a steady 22 degrees), you can visit out of ‘season’ to make an even bigger saving.
If you are a sun-worshipper hoping to book a beach break teamed with some great activities, head to the resort of El Medano. Here you can top up your tan to your heart’s content while acting out your inner daredevil and trying out an impressive variety of watersports. Tenerife’s acknowledged ‘nightlife central’ is the vibrant and often frenetic resort of Playa de las Américas, a location so packed with pubs, clubs and bars that you’ll be totally spoiled for choice.
If you’re hoping to travel round the island, this can be done at a very low cost by purchasing a travel card. This will give you budget access to all routes, thus saving you cash for more important things such as beer!
All in all, if you are looking for holiday that combines sun, sea and fabulous activities all at great prices, Tenerife is the perfect destination for you.
