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'.
Take a stroll around the cute and compact, olde worlde El Mirador Shopping Centre, at the back of Playa del Duque beach, where you can pick up some souvenirs at the artisan market every first and third Sunday of the month.
Head to the Plaza del Charco in Puerto de la Cruz on the night of 29 November for the deafening Fiesta de San Andres, when every man and his dog makes a racket with pots and pans before tucking into a chestnut and wine feast in the square.
Take time out to explore the old quarter of La Orotava, a living museum of Canarian mansions, cobbled streets and laurel-shaded squares in the north. Wear comfy walking shoes as steep streets are a prominent feature.
