We’ve been spending a lot of time travelling recently and we’ve been talking a lot about where we are planning on heading next. We aren’t quite brave enough to tackle long haul with our two so short haul it will remain for now. We’ve been discussing different destinations and I think we may have finally settled on one – Tenerife.
Tenerife is the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, off of West Africa. Did you know it has a dormant volcano on the island which is actually Spain’s tallest peak?
But why are we planning on holidaying in Tenerife and what is there to do there?
I may have mentioned this before but Steve’s sister lives over in Tenerife. She’s been over there for about ten years now and loves it there. Steve’s brother also lived there for a good few years so it is safe to say that our family loves the place.
I’ve never visited and neither have the kids – so it would be nice to both have a holiday and visit family at the same time. We only get to see my sister in law about once a year, if that – so getting to see her more regularly, even if just for a week or a fortnight, would be great.
You can get some great deals
There’s some fantastic deals available on the Voyage Privé website, last minute deals that really save you some pennies. Tenerife is quite an affordable destination anyway but if there is a possibility for me to save even more money, then I am going to take that opportunity.
I’ve been keeping my eye out for a deal that works on a date we can do – we have to work around school holidays currently due to Jack being at full time school and Steve also working there.
There are some fab beaches
The island of Tenerife has some beautiful beaches. We love visiting a beach when we are on holiday – only one holiday Jack has had wasn’t near a beach – and Tenerife has some stunning blue waters and golden sands. Did you know there are even some beaches with black sand? I didn’t!
What could be better on holiday than a day spent at the beach, splashing in the sea?
I am probably quite biased seeing as my sister in law is a singer who performs on the island but the nightlife is said to be truly second to none. Something that is great about it is that many of the pubs and bars are also family friendly – great with people who have young children such as me.
Entertainment is key when you are holidaying as a family and Tenerife has plenty of it! We like to spend every night out when we are on holiday so some decent nightlife is very much needed.
Sunshine all year round
Perhaps the biggest reason for visiting is that there is sunshine all year round. When I go on holiday, I want to be warm and indulge in the sunshine. Tenerife is a fantastic destination for this as it barely rains and the sun is always blazing down. Whether choosing to spend a day on the beach with the kids or exploring the island, I want the weather to be great and I can pretty much guarantee that with this destination.
These are just a few reasons on why I would like to visit Tenerife but I am sure there are many other reasons why Tenerife is such a fantastic destination for both couples and families alike. Have you ever been? Do you have any tips of places to go or things to do?
