Tenerife | Designer Travel



Coastline cliffs, sandy beaches and year round sunshine

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and boasts a coastline of cliffs and coves which offer a choice of black volcanic sand or the more traditional golden sandy beaches that most visitors will be more used to.

The island offers year round sunshine, beaches and coasts of clear water which lend themselves to superb water sports, all combined with a multitude of different hotel and villa options.

Costa Adeje is a lively resort popular with couples, families and groups of friends. With something for everyone, it’s one of the favourite beach resorts in Tenerife. There are plenty of family friendly hotels, Blue Flag beaches with sand brought in from the Sahara Desert, water activities, a good selection of shops and a wide array of eateries and bars providing entertainment into the night. For days out, there are shopping centres, bowling lanes, cinemas and adventure parks too.

Playa de Las Americas is a big hit with partygoers as it has lots of bars and nightclubs. However, it’s also a place that families love due to the soft beaches and plenty of activities that are around in the resort.

Los Cristianos has two golden beaches and a lovely promenade which allows you to walk all the way to neighbouring Playa de Las Americas. The pretty harbour is charming and there are plenty of watersports on offer down at the beach including scuba diving, snorkelling and jetskis.

Puerto de la Cruz lies on the northern coast of Tenerife and is home to the island’s iconic black sandy beaches, a good selection of luxury hotels and high quality restaurants and a quaint old town.

We recommend taking an excursion to Mount Teide, the highest peak in Spain and a familiar tourist attraction. Suitably attired and with your comfy walking boots on, you can spend a full day exploring Mount Teide and the surrounding area which has an abundance of flora and fauna to see. If you take the cable car ride, you’ll be rewarded with amazing views right across the island.

At Designer Travel, we listen to you to ensure that the holiday you want is the holiday you get. We can arrange a stay in a five-star luxury hotel, a family villa with a pool, a boutique hideaway or pretty much any other option you can think of.
