The island of eternal spring

If you want an ideal beach holiday, get to know Tenerife: all year round, visitors will appreciate the sea with a temperature of 20° C. While surfers in the breezier southeast of the island catch the waves, sun worshipers tan on the almost windless beaches in the southwest of the island. The average temperature makes it clear why Tenerife is called the „island of eternal spring“: temperatures are generally above 22° C. Even in the winter months, it remains mild, at a pleasant 15 to 20° C, perfect for outdoor fun, sports and excursions.

The gateway to the holiday world: Tenerife South Airport (TFS)

This holiday destination is not far away: a non-stop flight brings vacationers from Tenerife to the UK in under 5 hours. The island has two important airports: Aeropuerto de Tenerife Norte in the north and Tenerife Sur Reina Sofia (TFS) in the south. Designed and built specifically for the holiday flights of many airlines, the newer South Airport is also an arrival destination for travellers with SunExpress. It is located only 15 km from popular resorts such as Playa de las Americas and Los Christianos, in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona. Guests can transfer easily and comfortably to their destination by bus, on both the outward and return flights. To discover the island’s capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, with its historic buildings and harbour, hire a rental car and take the 57-kilometre direct route. Whether it’s now, next year or whenever the travel bug bites, SunExpress always offer affordable flights to Tenerife with the SunEco tariff.

On holiday in Tenerife: discover lunar landscapes

At 83 km long and 54 km wide, Tenerife is the largest of the Canary islands – so there is a lot to discover! Mount Teide is one of Tenerife’s major attractions; rising to a mighty 3,718 metres, it is the highest peak in Spain. The landscape around it is like a moonscape with vast fields of lava and rock formations and has been the setting for many science fiction films. UNESCO decided that this impressive landscape was worthy of protection and in 2007 the Teide National Park was awarded the status of a World Heritage site. When you visit Teide at night, the Milky Way seems close enough to touch, so by grabbing a bargain flight to Tenerife, you have the opportunity to discover new worlds with SunExpress. However, it’s not only on a hiking holiday in the Canaries that you will also discover something special: the university town of La Laguna with its idyllic old town is also part of the World Cultural Heritage site.

Tourist attractions and insider tips

When you have had enough of the tranquil beauties of nature, turn to something more adventurous! The Asian-themed Siam Park in Costa Adeje scores with spectacular water slides, a giant wave machine and fancy extras such as a floating market and promises fun and relaxation for the whole family. For a more extensive shopping trip, treat yourself to a visit to one of the big malls such as Corte Inglés in Santa Cruz, or stock up on souvenirs at the Mercado de Nuestra Señora de Africa, where tourists from all around the world enjoy the bustle. Travellers who prefer to discover the more remote areas of Tenerife can explore the almost Scottish-like landscape of the Anaga Mountains. In Puerto de la Cruz, search for the botanical garden with its sausage trees or enjoy prickly pears in the tiny village (just 100 inhabitants) of Masca. As the Tenerife holiday comes to an end, holidaymakers leave their mark at the Sunset Bar 290 in Puerto de la Cruz. The location is well-named; from the hillside, guests watch with a glass of wine as the sun sinks into the sea.
