Tenerife has been a firm favourite among us Brits for years, attracting over six million sun-seekers every summer season. Although its reputation has been secured by its vibrant party scene, extensive white beaches and all-inclusive resorts, this gem of an island has more to offer for those who are willing to venture beyond the typical tourist traps.

Step away from the built-up coastline and you’ll soon discover the natural beauty of the island. From picturesque mountain villages to ancient towns full of culture – and let’s not forget the dramatic snow-capped peaks of Pico del Tiede – when it comes to Tenerife, there really is so much more to see.

Six Reasons Why Tenerife is the Perfect Holiday Destination

1. Masca Village

This historical settlement perching on the side of the island’s mountainous terrain has been dubbed the most beautiful village in the Canary Islands, and it’s easy to see why. The drive itself, which take you up steep winding roads cut into the landscape, is incredibly scenic and offers breath-taking views of the rugged island. Stop off at the famous cafe to enjoy an ice cream and take in the view.

2. Teide National Park

Often overlooked by visitors who choose the colourful coastline over the arid inland, Teide National Park is a truly unique experience. Home to Spain’s highest mountain, a visit here is like travelling to another planet. Dry and stark, the desert land is made up of volcanoes, craters and cooled lava. An unmissable and unforgettable day out!

3. Watery Wildlife

Thanks to the summer sunshine, the warm waters surrounding the Canary Islands is a popular visiting spot for all sorts of marine wildlife. If you’re a nature-lover, a whale watching trip is a must! You’ll get the chance to watch these majestic creatures surfacing for air and, if you’re lucky, you may even spot a pod of dolphins playfully chasing the passing boats.

4. Easy to Explore

When planning your summer escape, ease is one of the top priorities for most travellers, and luckily this island is effortless to explore. Small and safe, driving is a great way to get around. Tenerife airport bus services and taxis are readily available and all the roads are well sign posted, so you know you’ll never get lost.

5. English Speaking

Though there are some trips that definitely require losing yourself in a different culture and earning the language, sometimes you just want to relax. English is spoken throughout the Canaries, so getting around, exploring the shops and finding your favourite restaurants is a breeze.

6. Easily Accessible

Thanks to its popularity, you’ll find a number of airlines offer flights throughout the year to Tenerife airport. Bus services heading into the centre are also readily available, meaning you can get your holiday started pretty much as soon as you land. For ultimate ease, I’d recommend organising a pre-booked Tenerife airport bus straight to your accommodation.

As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to fall in love with this Queen of the Spanish archipelago – and many more for you to discover for yourself! So, what are you waiting for? Sun, sea and unforgettable experiences are waiting.
