 6 Reasons to Consider Tenerife for Your Next Family Holiday

  Spain is always a popular destination for holidaymakers, and Tenerife in particular is proving to be a real hit. It’s the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, and is known for its varied beaches, colourful carnivals and family friendly atmosphere. Sound good? Here are six reasons you should consider Tenerife for your next family holiday…   Short haul flight If you don’t fancy making the kids sit on a plane for hours on end, Tenerife is a good bet. Unlike venturing to the other side of the globe, Tenerife is roughly a four-hour journey – enough time to enjoy a film on a personal DVD player, read, do some colouring in, enjoy a snack or two – or have a little doze.   Beaches! Tenerife has many beaches, some of which are black sand (the island is dominated by a dormant volcano, providing the black sand on many shores), while others are yellow. Fañabé beach is perfect if your family are sporty as the sea is perfect for water sports, whereas El Bollullo is known as Tenerife’s most beautiful beach and is perfect for a spot of sandcastle building and sunbathing. Check out the botanic garden bordering Playa Jardin too – the pink flowers look fantastic beside palm trees and volcanic sand, and there are plenty of restaurants nearby for refreshments.   Warm sunshine, but not blistering As Tenerife is positioned just off the coast of West Africa, it enjoys a warm tropical climate and averages about 28 degrees in the summer. This makes it the perfect destination for families as the sun is warm without being blistering, meaning...
