For that ultimate “fun in the sun” getaway, you can’t get much better than Tenerife. The largest island in the Canaries has been a hot spot for sun-kissed holidays for decades – over 5 million people flock there each year. And with sizzling-hot beaches, stunning mountain ranges and a sparkling capital with heaps of historic charm, who can blame them? Stepping out from your flights to Tenerife, you’ll be embraced by the warm archipelago air, calling you to discover the island’s cultural wonders and endless beach fiestas.
While the most popular months for flying are from June to August for that special summer magic, consider grabbing a flight from November to February for spectacular deals. The sun is still shining in the Canaries, and the money saved on your cheap flights to Tenerife will make your holiday all the sweeter. Moreover, you can stop off just in time for Tenerife’s colourful carnival held every February, the second largest of its kind worldwide. However, if you’re still seeking that spellbinding summer break, booking your flights to Tenerife 2 or 3 months in advance will help you save some cents.
If you’re in and around Dublin, both Aer Lingus and Ryanair offer direct flights to Tenerife South from Dublin Airport, with a flight time of just over 4 hours each way. You can also grab a great deal by flying into Dublin with Aer Lingus from locations such as Cork, Kerry and Shannon Airport which offer direct return flights to Tenerife directly. Otherwise, why not hop on a plane from Cork Airport with British Airways and fly to Tenerife via a short stopover in London Heathrow? Or pick up cheap tickets to Tenerife to fly direct from Cork with Ryanair.
Whether you’re landing in Tenerife South near Los Cristianos, or Tenerife North near La Laguna, you’ll never be short of travel options to the island’s blissful beaches and beyond. Hitch a ride on bus 111 from Tenerife South to Santa Cruz bus station. You can also take number 343 to the ever-popular hot spot, Puerto de la Cruz, or numbers 101 or 102 from Tenerife North. Renting a car is another great choice – zip across from the south to the north in less than 1 hour along the costal TF-1 motorway to discover the island’s hidden gems.
Tenerife’s not just a haven for beach-lovers – it’s also bristling with natural wonders and sights with a real “wow” factor. Check out El Teide, Spain’s tallest mountain at 3,700 metres. Find it at the heart of the island in its dusky mountain range for a fantastic view of Tenerife’s dreamy vistas. There’s also the yearly Santa Cruz carnival for the fun-seekers, with music and dancing to rival Rio de Janeiro’s. Fancy even more excitement? Try your hand at scuba diving in Puerto de la Cruz. Or speed off on a windsurfer on the beautiful southern coast, where you can also make a splash at one of Tenerife’s many water resorts, like Siam Park.
