Head off to the sunniest part of EuropeDiscover everything these islands have to offer
The largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife offers year-round warm weather, lush vegetation, beautiful shorelines and volcanic landscapes. It’s an ideal destination for those who want to enjoy a relaxing beach break, as well as offering a range of activities. Tenerife luxury holidays invite you to enjoy the island’s stunning scenery and attractions while staying in top-class hotels.
Tenerife is home to a variety of natural wonders, from tropical forests to volcanic lava caves. The island is dominated by the snow-capped Pico del Teide - the tallest peak in Spain. In the northeast of the island is the Anaga mountain range, which can be explored by foot or on thrilling 4x4 safaris.
Nature-lovers will relish the chance to visit the lush Risco Bello Aquatic Gardens. Shrouded in citrus trees and tropical plants, the gardens are home to an array of wildlife, including herons, dragonflies and many birds. The cascading, 18th-century gardens at the Jardínes del Marquesado de la Quinta Roja are also well worth a visit.
The picturesque beaches are another major draw for visitors. Many 5 star hotels in Tenerife are located along the island’s coastline, offering spectacular sea views and easy access to the golden sands. Watersports are also available on most beaches, including swimming, snorkelling, canoeing and surfing. You can also take leisurely boat trips around the coastline or go on dolphin and whale safaris.
Tenerife’s rich culture can be seen in its many notable buildings. For something unique, visit the Museo de la Naturaleza Y el Hombre to see its bizarre collection of mummies and skulls. Another must-see building is the Auditorio de Tenerife. This white auditorium was designed by the renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, and visitors can book a tour for a glimpse behind the scenes.
For a taste of the island’s history, head to the Casa de los Balcones. This ornate mansion was built in 1632 and is filled with antiques and memorabilia. Don’t miss the room dedicated to lacework, where you can see fine examples of traditional Tenerife lace. The site also has a bodega complete with an antique Lagar wine press once used to make banana liqueur.
Food, drink and nightlife
When it comes to food, Tenerife has plenty of delicious cuisine on offer. Sample the island’s favourite potato dish, Papas Arrugadas, which is often served smothered in spicy red mojo sauce. More traditional Spanish dishes such as chorizo sausage and paella are also popular and can be found on restaurant menus across the island.
If you fancy a tipple or two, try the locally-brewed beer called Dorado or a glass of the local wine from the vineyards.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
