Tenerife for Christmas sun

TENERIFE is the largest and most developed Canary Island. Attractive beaches, watersports and exciting adventures to Loro Parque, Siam Park and the cliffs of Los Gigantes make holidays to Tenerife popular year after year, offering activities for everyone to enjoy.

It’s an island of two halves, with Spain’s highest mountain dividing the lush tropical north from the rocky south.

Families are spoilt for choice in Tenerife. Give the children a glimpse of Africa and Asia in Loro Parque, a magical tropical park where you can see jaguars, whales, dolphins, gorillas and even penguins.

Giant waterparks like Siam Park and Aqualand will keep the kids splashing away happily for hours. Grown-ups can look forward to fresh fish served with a dash of mojo – Tenerife’s own spicy sauce. Spain’s tallest peak, Mount Teide, dominates the centre of the island, giving fantastic views from its lookout points. Take the cable car to the top and – if it’s a clear day – you can see the entire Canary Islands.
