With an average December high temperature of 71°F/22°C, Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Spain is an unexpected vacation destination that many travelers overlook. This makes it the perfect last-minute destination for Christmas travel and it gives vacationers a break from the cold and snow they may already have at home.
Relaxing, Family Friendly and Uncrowded
Not only is Tenerife less crowded than most vacation destinations near the Christmas holiday, it is also one of the most English-language-friendly of Spain’s Canary Islands. Tenerife is located just west of Morocco and about the same latitude as Florida, giving many travelers a familiar climate to relax and enjoy the holidays in. Popular among Europeans on holiday, the island offers a diverse blend of friendly people, an inviting atmosphere and plenty of entertainment no matter what you are looking for.
Lots to See and Do
From Tenerife’s dining and nightlife, to its wide range of adventure themed excursions and water activities, there is no shortage of things to do and see here. Visit the island’s many beautiful beaches, or visit the main city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife for shopping, dining and experiencing the local culture. For those wanting to leave the beach and play in the water, we suggest heading to the island’s southern shore to Los Cristianos and Playa de la Americanos, where the temperatures are even warmer and the water is more inviting.
Tenerife is known by many Europeans, Brits included, as a bargain destination with great package deals including hotels and airfare. Purchasing vacation packages to the Canary Islands and making purchases on the islands themselves is often cheaper than on the European continent making Tenerife even more attractive to last minute travelers.
