As familiar as it is warm, there’s no surprise why Tenerife remains a firm favourite with apartments4you customers for both summer and winter getaways. However you choose to holiday, Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, has a lot to offer and takes a lot of beating as a hot holiday destination. Here are just some reasons why Tenerife should top your holiday hit list…

With beaches galore, from golden sands with every amenity in Playa de las Américas and Los Cristianos, to the coves filled with black volcanic sand in Playa de la Arena and Puerto de la Cruz, it’s no wonder holidays centre around the beach here.

Family Fun 
Enjoy fun with the family at Siam Park. The large Thai-themed water park frequently wins awards and it’s easy to see why, with aquatic features that range from a wave park, where the surf gets up to three metres high, letting you ride the waves like a real professional, to the Singha, a ride over 240 metres (780 ft) long that bends and curls its way from start to end.

Fashionistas are well catered for in Adeje’s trendy shops and its seafront promenade offers a great place for a refreshing walk or a backdrop for cocktails at sunset.


The south is where most of Tenerife’s action takes place, with quiet family resorts such as Callao Salvaje and Los Gigantes giving way to more lively destinations like Los Cristianos and the party town of Playa de las Americas. Both are packed with restaurants, bars and a variety of exciting nightlife.

At the island’s heart you’ll find the towering volcano of Mount Teide, the third largest volcano in the world surrounded by an unearthly landscape of solid lava. Take a cable car up to the summit to admire the views of the whole island.

Is self-catering the new all-inclusive?

Imagine waking up in a gorgeous destination, sun beaming through the windows and a breath-taking feeling of tranquillity, only to realise you were woken by an alarm that you had to set in order to make it to breakfast… not your idea of relaxing?

Whether you are an early bird or a snoozer, self-catering holiday apartments allow you the freedom to eat when you are ready, not when the hotel is ready. Don’t fancy the same breakfast buffet you always have? Head out, explore, live like a local and find a traditional café, starting your day with fresh pastries and coffee, after all this is your holiday!

Self-catering allows you the opportunity to experience the culture of the destination you are in. Why travel away from home and continue to follow your day to day routine? You have the opportunity to explore somewhere new, indulge in local cuisine, embrace the culture and be your own travel guide.

Well equipped with the necessities that we are accustomed to in day to day life, a self-catering apartment provides that second home experience. The apartments are often separated, giving the bedroom, living room and kitchen some privacy and a homely feeling. Whether you’re holidaying with family or friends, apartments act as the ideal base to relax, having the space to just lounge and laze about in between great holiday adventures out and about with the luxury of returning to a comfy apartment to enjoy many an alfresco meal together on the balcony in the warmth of the setting sun. There’s no pressure to dress up and dine out each and every night – and when you do, you have the funds to make sure that it is an extra special dining experience to remember.

Self-catering holidays really are what you make it, they are a chance to experience everything your destination has to offer as well as ensuring a high level of comfort and personalisation – opt for a change next time you are booking and experience the world of self-catering for yourself!
