The Tenerife region
Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands situated off the North west coast of Africa and due to its constant good weather, excellent beaches (12 Blue Flag) and spectacular natural beauty it attracts over 3 million visitors every year.
It is confusing for first-time visitors to decide where to stay, so below is an overview of the major resorts in the South of the island. The list starts in the west and heads east past Tenerife Sur (Reina Sofia) Airport (the main airport for the South). This is followed by a short overview of the tourist areas in the north of the island.
Los Gigantes - At the tip of the west coast this quiet town gets its name from the giant cliffs (Acantilados de los Gigantes) that border the town and are only accessible by boat. Geared towards tourism it consists mainly of hotels and apartments and offers a variety of English bars some with live entertainment and others more suited for that quiet relaxing drink. A few restaurants offering excellent international cuisine and the usual favourites such as burgers or fish & chips. It has a black sand beach that is small but safe for swimming and surfing and is rarely crowded. There is a busy harbour where you can find a choice of water based excursions including boat trips up towards Masca, diving and scuba diving excursions and various water sports. Los Gigantes is a beautiful area and favoured by the more mature couples due to its peaceful atmosphere. Due to the hilly nature of this resort, it may not be suitable for those with walking difficulties. To visit other parts of the island, a car is recommended.Puerto de la Cruz - is the main tourist resort of the north of the island, and before the motorway and new airport in the south, was the largest holiday resort on Tenerife. Its history dates back as a small fishing village and port to the larger town of La Orotava. Many of the town's squares, churches and old houses date back to that time. Tourism started in the 1960s with visitors coming from the cruise ships docking in Santa Cruz. As package holidays became available in the 1970s, Puerto de la Cruz became a popular holiday resort. Puerto is known as Tenerife's sophisticated resort; filled with lush, tropical vegetation and resolutely Canarian in character, it's suited to those looking for Tenerife culture.
Compared to the purpose-built resorts, Puerto presents a very different picture. Outside of the hotels, bars and restaurants, English is not widely spoken and very little of the nightlife is based around live entertainment, karaoke or 'tribute' acts. The Canarios prefer to relax over a bottle of wine in one of the many bars that fill Puerto's plazas and old cobbled streets.Although the months of October to March see many retired British and Germans over-wintering in Puerto (as indeed they do in other resorts), the town's resident population is certainly not in the same 'mature' bracket and Puerto remains lively throughout the year. The summer months are particularly busy with Spanish mainlanders, many of them under 30, and this is when the town's nightlife is at its most lively. Today there are many 4 star hotels situated along the traffic-free promenade and there are a large number of shops and boutiques to suit all pockets. Puerto has a vast wealth of excellent restaurants, to cater for all tastes and budgets.
The town's main beach of Playa Jardín (the garden beach) is a beautiful black sand beach at the western edge of town, backed by extensive landscaped gardens with views to Mount Teide. Along the promenade is the magnificent swimming pool complex of Lago Martiánez which has six pools, including a wonderful kiddies area with a giant octopus and little waterfalls and a vast lake beneath which the town's Casino is located. Any holiday should not be complete without a visit to the world famous Loro Parque, which no one of any age should miss. A free road-train takes visitors from the centre of town. For those who love carnival, the town comes alive in February with many visitors and locals alike enjoying a week of good spirit and friendship.
he average temperature in winter rarely drops below 20° C (70° F) in the day; hardly 'cold' by UK standards. The sunshine hours are slightly less than the south of the island and the months of July or August can be humid and cloudy.
However, it does rain more here than in the south which is why it's so green and fertile. February and November tend to be the rainy months.
Puerto de la Cruz
La Orotava is probably one of the prettiest towns in Tenerife . Full of historical buildings, wooden balconies, flower filled plazas and narrow streets. Here the locals live and shop in main shopping streets and hidden squares. To the south of the town is the new indoor shopping centre 'La Villa'. Here there are many well-known high-street stores, eating houses, and a multi-screen cinema. The town is noted for the Corpus Christi celebrations when the locals fill the streets with art, by covering them in stunning carpets of made from flowers and volcanic sand. On one side of La Orotava Valley are the mountains and on the coast (El Rincòn) there are at least three beaches El Bollullo, Los Patos and Ancon.

"Exceptional stay - very recommendable!!!"
We stayed 14 days in this villa and enjoyed it very much. The local hosts helped out with any questions we had. Furthermore, we were able to benefit from the avocados and bananas which the gardener collected for us from the surrounding garden. The location is amazing. The beach is not far and you can walk to Puerto de la Cruz. Furthermore, a very nice restaurant is down the street in walking distance in case you don´t want to cook. The villa itself is very spacious and in the master bedroom you even find a waterbed. The jacuzzi is perfect for the winter when the pool is too cold. It was a perfect vacation location for us.
Thank you Markus and you are welcome again to this villa with a discount for you and your friends.
