Popular Tenerife Resorts

Tenerife in the Canary Islands is a very popular destination for holiday-makers with many British people, as well as Germans and other nationalities choosing it as the ideal place to spend their holidays. Of course this is understandable with its subtropical climate, sandy beaches and modern tourist resorts.
It is also easy to book flights to Tenerife, especially to Reina Sofia Tenerife South Airport, which is within convenient travelling distance from the main resorts in that part of the island. Visitors to the island have plenty to choose from when it comes to a selection of affordable Tenerife accommodation, and there are short-term lets for Tenerife Apartments as well as long-term rentals available.
There are plenty of apartment blocks, apartment-hotels and more conventional hotels on offer in Tenerife but many visitors like to choose a self-catering holiday to suit their pockets.
The most popular and well known resorts in the south of Tenerife are Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas but there are many other coastal villages that fit into the resort category as well.
The resorts offer everything a holiday-maker could want. Besides the wonderful beaches and plentiful sunshine there are loads of bars and restaurants, as well as large modern shopping centres. There are theme parks like Siam Park, as well as coach and minibus excursions all around the island.
The resorts are served by an excellent bus service too that makes it easy for visitors to the island to get about, although many are quite content to use the local beaches and facilities in the area they are holidaying in.
Tenerife North, which on the whole offers a cooler climate and more rain that allows luxuriant vegetation to grow, has resorts too with Puerto de la Cruz being the most popular and largest of these. This is where you can visit the world famous Loro Parque Parrot Park or relax on its black sand beach with its own gardens known as Playa Jardin.
