Looking to escape the cold this winter? Holiday Gems has a great range of deals on cheap Tenerife holidays so you can get some Winter sun.
Tenerife is one of the nearest holiday destinations from the UK where golden sunshine in the depths of winter can be guaranteed. Part of the Spanish Canary Islands, Tenerife is nearer to west Africa than it is to Spain. Its location makes it the warmest part of Europe – and within four and a half hours of a UK airport, winter Tenerife breaks are easy and accessible for any British holidaymaker.
As Tenerife is duty-free, a holiday here is inexpensive. Even the growing number of five star hotels on the island provide incredible value for money.
Besides sunshine and endless beaches, Tenerife is entrenched in history and surrounded by lunar volcanic landscapes. The island is dominated by Spain’s highest peak, Mount Teide, which despite the warm weather of the island, is often snow capped in the winter months.
Average temperatures on the island stay warm all year round. The coldest month is January, where the climate ranges from 15°C to 22°C. Winter Tenerife holidays promise to be some of the driest in Europe: average rainfall on the island between November and February is 23mm.
With millions flocking to this island every year – Tenerife has entertainment throughout the 12 months. If tapas, wine tasting, vineyard visits, trekking, snorkelling, cruises and quad biking gets boring, there’s tonnes of other things to do including:
Siam Park – A waterpark for all the family in Adeje.
Submarine Safaris – Explore the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean by getting on board one of these state-of-the-art subs.
Museum of Man and Nature – The refurbished Old Civil Hospital, this museum gives visitors the history of early Tenerife where you can learn about the inhabitants, wildlife and landscape of the island.
Gastro Market el Duque – This food market is a great place to discover amazing food from the area. There are well-recommended cocktails bars and also a kids’ area where you can offload while you explore the place.
Carnivals – if you’re about in February and March, stay around for one of the many carnivals happening around the island. The carnival in Santa Cruz is of epic proportions – carnival queens, floats, drag queens, the Grand Parade and the legendary Burial of the Sardine are events that will make your Tenerife holiday wonderfully memorable.
