The types of city breaks Tenerife offers
The beauty of this Spanish isle is that it is not all about lying on a beach all day. The northern end of the island is perfect for a city break, packed full of amazing sights to see, places to visit and tales to tell. For active city breaks Tenerife has plenty of opportunities for the visitor who can hike along the giant sea cliffs at Los Gigantes or swim in the natural bathing pools made out of lava formations at Garachio.
And yet for beach-related city breaks, Tenerife is just as amenable. Because of the rocky coastline, some of the beaches have been made with sand transported from the Sahara Desert. Playa de las Teresitas north of Santa Cruz is possibly the best sandy beach on the island and is surprisingly quiet outside summer weekends so make a note and book your city break for then.
For festival-based city breaks, Tenerife boasts a variety of celebrations including the Carnival in February or March, and the slightly odd Fiesta de San Juan where animals are dunked in the harbour waters in Puerto de la Cruz.
If you have children with you on your city break, Tenerife has plenty to offer them from an exotic zoo near Los Christianos to an assault course, or Pueblo Chico, where Tenerife is recreated in miniature.
Entertainment on Tenerife
You do not have to look far for an entertaining city break as Tenerife has it all, from the wildest nightlife in Playa de las Americas to more local colour at the quieter resorts. You can enjoy a Cuban dance show on the south coast or take a turn on the casino tables in Puerto de la Cruz at the island’s oldest hotel.
For more traditional entertainment, try and see a folk dance, often performed at local festivals. The Tenerife Symphony Orchestra perform at the Auditorio de Tenerife in Santa Cruz with a full programme of opera, jazz and chamber music to be enjoyed by residents and tourists alike. Or try a wine-tasting session at La Laguna in the northeast after finding out how the local wine is produced.
