Discover our favourite family-friendly hotels and villas in Tenerife, Spain
Explore sea caves, remote villages and geranium-lined footpaths in the less-discovered north; mountain moonscapes of bewildering beauty at the island's volcanic heart; and stay down south for manicured sands with more fun-having facilities than is decent. Garachico (once prosperous until a flow of lava blocked its port in 1706) has cobbled streets and traditional hillside houses; the volcanic rock pools formed at the water’s edge make this pretty coastal village perfect for promenading along the palm-fringed pathways lining Tenerife’s rugged northern coast. To the east, Puerto de la Cruz is a lively resort town that brims with authentic Spanish charm and colourful Continental culture. And the Costa Adeje, on Tenerife’s southern coast, is home to several Blue Flag beaches, with azure waters, gentle sea breezes and volcanic vistas.
