LONDON, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Boasting phenomenal weather, friendly locals, and a unique mix of activities and entertainment, it's no surprise that Tenerife attracts over 5 million tourists a year. From the golden sandy beaches in the South, to the dramatic lunar landscape of Mount Teide National Park - and everything in between - Tenerife has something for everyone. Whether you're looking for a break away with the kids, or just want to escape with your loved one for a romantic getaway in the sun, the wonderful climate draws people to the island all year round. So, you don't need to wait until summer to book flights to Tenerife.
Tenerife has many high quality beaches, several of which have soft golden or volcanic sand with warm tranquil waters, ideal for swimming. Most have good access, meet stringent European standards of cleanliness, and offer shower facilities, sun beds and sunshades. The majority also offer water sports, including jet-skiing and wind-surfing, as well as exciting boat trips. From Playa de las Américas and Los Cristianos beach in the South, to the wonderful Playa de las Teresitas in the Santa Cruz area, you'll find gorgeous stretches of sand and easy access into the ocean.
History and scenery
If you head north from the beaches of the South, you'll find the capital city of Santa Cruz. History, culture and the arts are here to be discovered, as well as great restaurants, nightlife and the lovely beach of Playa de Las Teresitas. You'll also be able to explore the vibrant resort of Puerto de la Cruz, set in the beautiful landscape of the Orotava Valley. Elsewhere on the island, you'll find captivating villages in the mountains and valleys including Masca and Güímar. And on the West coast, the dramatic cliffs of Los Gigantes are a spectacular sight.
The weather in Tenerife is glorious - one of the main reasons why the island has earned the reputation of being one of the best year-round holiday hotspots. The sun shines for more days of the year here than most other places in the world. The trade winds, together with the refreshing Gulf air currents, are the major weather factors that contribute to the climate. The minimum and maximum annual average temperatures in Tenerife are about 15°C (59°F) in winter and 24°C (75.2°F) in summer.
