Getting to Know Tenerife

If you're considering a holiday in Tenerife, here are a few facts to help you get acquainted with this wonderful holiday island.

Tenerife has two airports, aptly named Tenerife South and Tenerife North. Visitors travelling to the areas of Playa de las Americas, Los Cristianos, Costa Adeje and other southern regions will normally fly to Tenerife South, while those staying in Puerto de la Cruz and the surrounding locations will use Tenerife North.

Undoubtedly the liveliest holiday resort is Playa de las Americas, which buzzes with activity and nightlife during the summer. Although things wind down outside of the summer season, you can still expect a lively atmosphere and plenty of bars and pubs to keep you entertained. Guia de Isora is a quieter resort on the beautiful west coast, while Puerto de la Cruz is a popular spot on the picturesque northern shores.


Tenerife is home to plenty of attractions for all ages. For kids and families, Siam Park near Costa Adeje is a must, as is Loro Parque in the north - a popular wildlife reserve with hundreds of creatures great and small. For adventurers and day-trippers, Teide National Park is a spectacular place with many wonderful sights and sounds. And if you can't get enough of the city, head to capital Santa Cruz for bright lights, great sights and shopping.
