Holidays in Tenerife
Away from the beach, holidays in Tenerife take a turn towards the more traditional. And the lunar-like landscape is peppered with banana plantations, whitewashed villages and shuttered colonial buildings. And the shopping's just as attractive. Santa Cruz and Los Cristianos are the perfect places to take advantage of the lower taxes. Department stores positively drip with labels but you can also find tiny shops brimming with good buys too. So make sure you pack your credit card, as it's bound to feel the burn.
When you've bagged your all your last minute bargains, slip on your new outfit and make a beeline for Tenerife's buzzing night spots. The island comes to life as happy hours announce the beginning of the night. After a couple of cocktails, make your way to the clubs and discos that spill big beats and floor fillers into the darkness. Whether you're looking for 80's electro-pop, songs from the swinging 60's or top chart tunes - let your hair down in some of the best parties on the island and dance to the music.
