Cheap flights to Tenerife South
How to describe Tenerife? Volcanic lunar landscapes, lush pine forests, fertile valleys, beautiful beaches, traditional Spanish towns and bustling resorts - yes they're all here.
The largest of Spain's Canary Islands is an old favourite when it comes to tourism, having seen visitors travelling to its shores for over 100 years. So Tenerife has an infrastructure that caters for every tourist, from young revellers to families. And what's more, because it is located a mere 100 kilometres off the coast of northern Africa it has great temperatures all year long. The average is a balmy 23 degrees - no wonder it is called the 'island of eternal spring'.
Those of an active (and mightily fit) persuasion might want to participate in Teide Extreme 2014, a hardcore triathlon on 4 October that starts in the sea and ends at Mount Teide. teidextreme.com
Those crazy dudes on sailboards take to the waters (and sky!) off El Medano on 4-10 August during the World Windsurfing Championships. Expect daredevil stunts, oceans of colour and riotous parties. pwaworldtour.com
Mid-December is the perfect time to head north and visit Santa Cruz, when the streets of the capital around Plaza de Espana are bedecked with Christmas decorations and nativity scenes, Canarian-style.
