The 5 Best Places To Stay In Tenerife

The Canary Islands like all holidays in Spain are great for sunshine pretty much all year round. And with so much to see and do on the island it caters to all ages and all types of holiday wishes. Whether you are a couple looking for a calm and chilled out summer break, or a family looking for adventure and lots of exciting places to visit, Tenerife really does have it all.

But where are the best places to stay on the island? Well where you stay can have a huge influence on the type of holiday you have. Here are our tips for where to stay to cater for all different kinds of holiday wishes.

Playa De Las Americas / Los Cristianos

If it is partying and clubbing that you are after, then the obvious destination on the island is either Playa De Las Americas or Los Cristianos. With a huge number of bars, clubs and restaurants, these are the perfect resorts for fun seekers. 

However, there are also lots of brilliant shopping opportunities to be had in this part of the island too, so if you are looking for designer sunglasses, jewellery, handbags or perfume, then this is also the place for you.

Costa Adeje / La Caleta

Looking for somewhere a little more sophisticated and chilled? Then Costa Adeje and La Caleta is more for you. Some of the best restaurants and shops can be found on this part of the coast.

In my personal experience it is just that little bit more chilled than the party atmosphere of Las Americas, yet there is still plenty of bars and restaurants if you wish to have a good night out.

Los Gigantes

Los Gigantes Harbour

Los Gigantes is a much smaller resort further up the west coast of the island, and as such caters for a much quieter holiday. The pretty main square still has its fair share of bars and restaurants, but if you are looking for a more peaceful vacation then I certainly would recommend Los Gigantes, with its stunning view of the cliffs, dark volcanic beach and pretty picturesque harbour. 

Puerto De La Cruz

Did you know that the north of the island seems to have a completely different climate to the south of Tenerife? If you stay in Puerto de la Cruz you will find that it seems to be more humid and slightly cooler.

Puerto de la Cruz is a lovely cosmopolitan resort, and perfect for families. One of the highlights of the resort is the Loro Parc, which is a brilliant family day out.

Amarilla / Las Galletas / Costa Del Silencio

Finally, if it is sports and particularly golf you are looking for on Tenerife, then Amarilla is definitely the place for you. In fact the south of the island does seem to be the best place to say if you are looking for watersports, scuba diving and snorkelling. 

Final Thoughts

No matter where you stay on Tenerife there is lots to see and do to cater to any of your holiday demands. Wherever you stay, I would highly recommend hiring a car and exploring other parts of the island such as Mount Teide, the traditional villages further inland of the island, and visiting some of the other multitude of attractions that Tenerife has to offer.
