Many holiday destinations boast great diversity and a long list of things to see and do. But one place that certainly tops the diversity list is Tenerife - and what's more, it's an absolute cracker of a holiday destination too.
Many people think of Tenerife and think "beach". Yes, it's got fabulous beaches, and plenty of lovely sandy bays that were just made for bathing, paddling, swimming, watersports, or just soaking up that lovely Canarian sunshine. It's also got a vibrant nightlife - another thing that the island has become famous for. Head to the neon-lit Playa de las Americas or stick around after dark in Los Cristianos and you'll soon see what all the fuss is about.
But there's much more to Tenerife than bars and beaches. Shopaholics and sightseers will have a whale of a time in Santa Cruz, the capital city of the island, which is home to fantastic shops, stunning architecture, fantastic restaurants serving up delicious cuisine and plenty more besides. Walkers and nature enthusiasts will get their kicks in the stunning National Park - a sprawling nature reserve in the centre of the island that's also home to Mt Teide, the resident volcano and the tallest peak in Spain. Here you can explore Tenerife's volcanic terrain, enjoy a picnic overlooking its craggy peaks and rolling hillsides, or even whizz to the top of Mt Teide by cable car for soul-stirring views across the island.
Another jewel in Tenerife's crown is its affordability. You'll find plenty of holiday deals to Tenerife on the Thomas Cook website, by searching for last minute holiday deals or by snapping up early bird deals on next year's holidays, which helps to make things that little bit easier.
You can find package holidays and snap up some great deals by searching the tour operators' websites, or you could go your own way by booking scheduled flights and hotel accommodation independently. However you get there, don't miss the chance to explore Tenerife and discover its diversity to the full - you won't regret it!
