With one of the healthiest climates in the world, Tenerife used to be a destination prescribed by doctors for Victorians suffering from depression or joint-related illnesses.
Nowadays, alongside the health benefits, people are drawn to the largest of the seven Canary Islands for many, many more reasons.
The south is a haven for those who like to wake up to year-round blue skies, gaze across the ocean at neighbouring islands, and walk barefoot on soft, warm sands.
It’s also idyllic for those who appreciate the finer things in life, like gourmet restaurants offering Canarian cuisine, and a cosmopolitan nightlife appealing to all ages and tastes.
The south of Tenerife is all about the outdoors life – golf days on championship courses, long, lazy lunches at quayside restaurants and sunset strolls along palm-lined promenades.
And away from the coastline, there’s a unique landscape that slips from whitewashed villages to dense forests, and from surreal volcanic moonscapes to dizzying mountain peaks, all within a one-hour drive.
Tenerife is most definitely an island on the up. Money is being poured in to a world-class infrastructure, new five-star hotels and acclaimed attractions like Siam Park, voted the world’s best water park.
And conservation of our natural assets such as our resident whales and dolphins, and world-beating stargazing facilities continue to draw praise and amazement on a global scale.
Right now, more people than ever before are investing both time and money in Tenerife. Isn’t it time you chose to follow the flow to this safe, healthy and beautiful, sub-tropical destination?
