Popular Destinations

Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Visit Tenerife’s capital, Santa Cruz. Located on the Eastern tip, it is home to one of the most historically important harbours in the Atlantic Ocean.

Santa Cruz is a vibrant hub of activity, from anything to relaxing on the beach, to visiting the gorgeous landmarks, to attending Carnival, a traditional Spanish parade / celebration.

Devote a day to shopping, as Tenerife offers international brands at tax free prices, so while you’re here, you may as well treat yourself!

Los Gigantes

Explore the charming seaside town of Los Gigantes. Located on the West coast of the island, it’s only a 45 minute drive from the airport.

Home to one of the most attractive natural wonders of Tenerife, Los Gigantes cliffs really are a feat to have under your belt. The composition of these cliffs make for stunning volcanic black sand beaches, gifted by the presence of Tenerife’s very own volcano, Mount Teide.

If you’re spending a sunny day at the beach, beware of the beautiful, but jagged rocks that are dotted across the sand.

Las Americas

Dance the night away in Tenerife’s party capital, Las Americas.

Known for its sandy beaches and 24 hour party scene, this seaside town is mainly popular amongst young adults, but is welcoming of everyone !

Las Americas is also home to an 18 hole golf course, right in the heart of the city, as well as many other activities to keep the kids entertained.

Puerto de la Cruz

Stroll around one of Tenerife’s most popular areas, Puerto de la Cruz. Although this city has hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, it remains proudly Canarian in its disposition.

If you go beyond the main tourist areas, you’ll find many of the locals don’t speak English. This is a perfect way to get a fill of the rich and unabridged culture of Tenerife, as well as sample authentic cuisine that doesn’t pander to delicate British taste buds.

Try your hand at some watersports here along one of Puerto’s volcanic beaches, or simply explore the Old Town.

Costa Adeje

Enjoy something for everyone in Costa Adeje. With miles of sandy beaches and warm waters, as well as high class entertainment and amusement/waterparks, there is fun for the whole family.

There is also a mix of shopping centres dotted around this coastal town, so be sure to pick up a bargain, as many brands here are tax free !

Grab a snorkel and swim in one of Costa Adeje’s beautiful beaches, it won’t be long before you spot some of Tenerife’s interesting marine life.

Travel Risks in Tenerife

Crime rates in Spain are low, but the most common is theft. This can be by pickpockets or directly from your hotel room. Make sure you keep all of your valuables inside a safe, especially your travel documents and passports.

Beware of thieves using forms of distraction such as asking for directions, and be mindful of your belongings at all times.

Thieves have also been known to pose as police officers as a means to steal your personal documents.

Always ask to see credentials before handing anything over, and only show them your ID and not your passport.

There is also an increased risk of natural disasters in Tenerife, due to its location, with many small scale earthquakes occurring. Make sure you exercise increased safety precautions and consider these risks when visiting Tenerife.

Global Health Insurance Card

The GHIC (Global Health Insurance Card) replaced the EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) in the 1st January 2021.

You can use this card to access medical healthcare abroad. This includes state healthcare including emergency treatment, treatment for existing medical conditions, routine maternaty care, oxygen therapy, kidney treatment and many more healthcare requirements.

NB: This is not a substitute for Travel Insurance, as there are restrictions on cover and you might have to pay some costs. It is important to note that this card will not cover Repatriation.
