Golden beaches, duty-free shopping and mighty Mount Teide
On an all inclusive holiday to Tenerife, the essentials are paid for upfront. So all you need to think about is what to do when you’re here…
Choosing an all inclusive holiday to Tenerife means you sort out all the main costs of your holiday before you go – accommodation, travel and meals in your hotel. It makes it much easier to budget, and leaves you free to focus on the most important thing – enjoying yourself. Here are a few ideas to get you started…
Blue Flag beaches
Beach-wise, Tenerife serves up plenty of options. Watersports are big news by the stretch of golden sands at Playa Fañabe – you can try your hand at anything from bob-diving to jet-skiing. Meanwhile the calm waters at Playa de Las Vistas make it a perfect beach for families.
You won’t pay duty on anything you buy in Tenerife. For big-name designers, head for the Plaza del Duque shopping centre in Costa Adeje. You’ll find clothes, jewellery and diamonds from the likes of Cartier here. For one-off pieces, head to the boutiques near El Duque beach.
Away from the busy beach resorts, Tenerife’s unspoilt landscape is great for hiking. Lace up your walking boots and head to the Anaga region for the best treks. It’s home to Guajara, the island’s second highest peak, and Las Canadas National Park. For the biggest challenge it has to be Mount Teide. It’s 3,718 metres high, and there are plenty of walking trails to the top.
Playa de Las Americas is the hub of the island’s clubbing scene. The superclubs and discos on Veronica’s Strip pump out the music ‘til the early hours. For something quieter, Costa Adeje has a more laid-back feel. Head to the San Eugino district and you’ll be able to tap your feet to the sound of live Spanish guitars.
Real Spanish cooking
Rabbit is always on the menu here. Conejo al Salmorejo is a real treat – the rabbit is marinated in wine, vinegar, garlic and spices and cooked for more than 4 hours until it’s so tender it slips off your fork. Puchero Canario is another local favourite. Cooked in a big pot, it uses up whatever’s left in the kitchen – chorizo, chicken, vegetables – you name it. All topped with a spoonful of smoky paprika.
