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 Los Cristianos or Adeje Old Town on the evening of 5 January for the annual King's Day parades. Amidst the frenzy of processions that feature stilt-walkers, fancy floats and live animals, local children thrust their Christmas lists at the camel-riding Kings.
Don't miss the 2014 Tenerife Carnival, one of the world's biggest street parties. Hundreds of thousands shed their inhibitions for the island's number one fiesta, with processions, live music and shows from 23 February till 5 March in Santa Cruz.
