Your flights, accommodation and food and drink are taken care of on All inclusive holidays to Tenerife. And with the essential stuff covered off, how you spend the rest of your holiday fund is up to you – rooting around the shops, sipping cocktails on the beach or seeing the sights. Here are a few ideas to get you started...
Tenerife is blessed when it comes to beaches. From long, golden stretches to the black sands of Playa de la Arena and Puerto de la Cruz, there's definitely no shortage of sand. At Playa Fañabe, ramped–up watersports like jet–skiing and bob–diving are the order of the day. With calm waters, Blue Flag–waving Playa de Las Vistas, the largest of Los Cristianos' trio, is the perfect beach for families. And if you fancy striking out, boat trips set off on whale–watching trips every day.
Thai–themed Siam Park serves up terrifying waterslides along with the world's biggest manmade waves and longest lazy river. The Volcano, the Tower of Power and the Mekong Rapids are just part of the white–knuckle fun. When you've recovered, you can get some retail therapy in the floating market, meet the sealions or refuel in one of the park's restaurants. Siam Park is a 10–minute walk from Playa de las Americas.
The island's capital is a good place to give your credit card a workout – and with shopping being tax–free in Tenerife, you can get some real bargains. Calle Castillo is the place to head for everything from designer fashion to high–street favourites. But there's more to Santa Cruz than shopping – the million–pound prom and spanking new architecture are well worth a look, too. For a taste of the capital's nightlife, head to the bars and restaurants of Noria after dark.
Superclubs and discos throng Veronica's Strip in Playa de las Americas, where you've got the island's best parties. Along with lively clubs, there's karaoke and comedians on offer, too. For musical entertainment the Spanish way, head to San Eugino in Coste Adeje where you'll find some impressive Spanish guitar playing.
Award–winning Loro Parque, was once just for parrots – there are 1,400 of them – but now sharks, dolphins, orca whales and the biggest population of penguins outside the Arctic have all moved in. It's got a top–notch setting in tropical gardens in Puerto de la Cruz, too.
