Tenerife: A golf break like no other

Known for its gorgeous year-round climate and spectacular golf courses, a golf break to Tenerife also offers breathtaking natural attractions, fun activities, superb hotels and gastronomic delights.

Just a handy 3-4 hours from central Europe, Tenerife enjoys year-round warm sunshine, perfect for playing golf. But there’s more to this island than great weather. From treks up the mighty volcanic Mount Teide, stargazing, waterparks and animal parks, to lively resorts like Playa de las Americas, vibrant beaches and bar-lined strips, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Fantastic hotels & resorts

Tenerife is blessed with a variety of great accommodation options with everything from quaint hotels to large resorts, and there’s plenty on offer for different budgets, as well as all-inclusive and long-stay options.

If you’re looking for luxury, the Sheraton La Caleta Resort & Spa is an outstanding 5-star resort located in Adeje on the south coast and close to most of the island’s golf courses. The Ritz-Carlton Abama, set high above Tenerife’s western coastline, also offers a 5-star experience, and you can play at the resident Abama Golf Club which we rate as the island’s best golf course.

Another great option is Vincci Tenerife Golf Hotel. Close to Reina Sofía airport, it offers exclusive four-star services and an exceptional location, right by the sea and only one kilometre from one of Tenerife’s best golf courses, Golf del Sur.

Great variety of beaches

Whether you’re searching for kid-friendly or kite surfing, golden or black sand, lively or deserted, you’ll find something to suit you. There are over 60km of stunning beaches to choose from and the sub-tropical climate means comfortable swimming all year round.

Los Cristianos and Las Americas are two of the island’s most popular resorts and right in the middle is a stunning beach with golden sand, clear blue waters and a wide promenade. Tucked away from Tenerife’s major party hubs, Playa de las Vistas offers a more relaxing environment, while a quiet, unspoilt gem is Playa de las Teresitas on Tenerife’s north coast. Then there’s El Médano, popular with water sports enthusiasts.

Gastronomic delights

Tenerife is fast becoming a destination for gastronomes. As well as brilliant street-food, traditional tapas bars and countless restaurants to discover, the island’s hotels themselves have become foodie destinations.

The 5-star Ritz-Carlton Abama‘s gourmet offering is world renowned. There’s Italian, Spanish, and BBQ to choose from at the 10 restaurants which include the two Michelin-starred M.B, which serves dishes created by renowned chef Martín Berasategui, and Kabuki, with one Michelin star, which offers innovative Japanese cuisine.

Another great gastronomic option is the 5-star Royal Hideaway Corales Suite by Barceló Hotel Group, just four minutes on foot from La Enramada Beach, and a 10-minute walk to Los Lagos golf course. The dining options include the Michelin-starred restaurant El Rincón de Juan Carlos, led by the prestigious Canarian chef Juan Carlos Padrón, Peruvian/Japanese fusion at San Ho, modern Italian at Il Bocconcino, wood-fired pizzas at Trattoria by Il Bocconcino, and grilled fish and meat at Starfish.

Fun attractions

The Thai-themed Siam Waterpark in Costa Adeje has thrilling rides such as the terrifying Dragon vertical slide, the Naga Racer slides, and the fun Mekong Rapids. The park’s Lost City is great for young kids, while Coco Beach is perfect for all the family with a huge wave pool. Just down the road, Aqualand has fun rides for thrill-seekers and younger kids, while the whole family can enjoy the dolphin shows and even get to swim with them.

Loro Parque, a huge zoo on the outskirts of Puerto de la Cruz, is a tropical paradise with dolphin and orca shows. There’s plenty of other great shows and sights to enjoy with lions, parrots, pelicans, gorillas, chimps, tigers, and even sharks.

Planetarium & volcano hike

A visit to Teide Observatory is one of the most popular destinations for holidaymakers. Tours start at sunset and include breathtaking views of the sun setting over the rugged peak of Mount Teide. Guides will walk you through some incredible aspects of the solar system and you’ll get the chance to look through the powerful observatory telescopes.

On the west coast of Tenerife is the spectacular Mount Teide National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with Mount Teide at the centre, the world’s third highest volcano and the highest peak in Spain. There are numerous guided tours and a thrilling cable car ride that’ll be the experience of a lifetime.
