Tenerife in a Nutshell

Tenerife is one of the largest of the Canary Islands. The proximity to the Northwest African continent has blessed those islands with year around sunshine, a key ingredient that attracts millions to take holidays there. As tourism is the key industry that supports largely the local businesses and economy is no surprise that a range of resorts and amenities are found around the island. With many holidays provider it is always easy to find great holiday deals to Tenerife. If you are travelling from UK then Directline Holidays not only has a great choice of holidays to Tenerife, but they are offering a low deposit of £25 per person for all holidays in 2013.

Where can I party?

The party capital and notoriously famous Playa de las Americas is where most visitors head for a night out and late night entertainment. Veronicas strip is the main road where music from the clubs on each side of the road spills into the air and makes the whole scenery an open nightclub in itself. In peak season expect the strip to be packed with party lovers and naturally crazy atmosphere.

Where can I find a relaxing spot?

If you seeking an isolated and hidden beach then head north to Playa Bollullo, which is reachable by a single track road and is very close to the Puerto de la Cruz. If you get bored quickly there, you can always opt for something cultural for those that find it a relaxing activity. For example Puerto de la Cruz is the actual capital of the island and it hosts Loro Parque, which is a zoo with over 3000 animals making it one of the biggest in Europe. Not by coincidence one of the most popular attractions in the island.

Where can I get best of both?

If you like to party but still fancy a good relaxation than you need to consider Playa del Duque in Costa Adeje. This resort is rather upmarket and offers a blue flag sandy beach where you will find plenty of relaxation. It is less than 10 minutes taxi ride away from Playa de las Americas but far enough to not hear any of techno beats or summer anthems of the party capital of Tenerife.
