Apartments in Tenerife

Pure relaxation in the south of Tenerife

The popular holiday island of Tenerife is divided into a northern and a southern half by the rugged mountain ridge in which Spain's highest mountain, Teide, is located. If you are looking for a apartment or a vacation rental on the south side of Tenerife, you will find it first and foremost in the tourist centres Los Cristianos, Costa Adeje and Arona. There you benefit from a central location for excursions into the hinterland as well as from an excellent tourist infrastructure with numerous bars and restaurants. You'll also be staying in classic seaside resorts such as El Médano near Tenerife South Airport and Playa de las Américas, which are considered to be water sports centres on the island. Guests who prefer a little more peace and quiet can move into a vacation rental in the shade of tropical palm trees with pool and sun terrace in tranquil coastal towns such as Arico and Fasnia. Even more space is available in an apartment or vacation rental in one of the sparsely populated mountain villages on the edge of the Teide National Park.

Travelers and Activities

Adventure holiday on the volcano island

Yes, the picturesque beaches in the south of Tenerife invite you to relax in the warm sand. But those who only relax on the beach will miss the numerous adventures that are hidden on Tenerife away from the beaches. So put on your hiking boots and explore the 822-kilometre network of hiking trails, which offers both wide trails for families and narrow paths for experienced mountain hikers. In the south of the island there is neither a lack of breathtaking views nor of exciting destinations. Proof enough are places like the Orotava valley, the Roques de Garcia, the hell gorge (Barranco del Infierno) near Adeje as well as the national park around the volcano Teide itself. Also worth seeing are the pyramids of Güimar along the way. Adventurous water rats, on the other hand, strap on their compressed air tanks and go diving with an experienced guide off the coast. Thanks to countless volcanic underwater caves, colourful reef dwellers and various diveable shipwrecks, there is also a lot to discover here.

Things to know

Regular events

The calendar of events has something for everyone, especially as the programme ranges from religious festivals such as the pompous processions in Holy Week to traditional folk and fishing festivals to unusual highlights such as the "Pasionari@s" concerts. The undisputed highlight of the season, however, is the Carnival in February, which transforms the southeast of the island into a big fiesta by parades and dance events over weeks.

Best travel time

The beauty of Tenerife's geographical location is that you can spend your well-deserved bathing holiday there all year round. This applies in particular to the south coast of the island, where water temperatures do not drop below 17 degrees even in winter. For hikers and cyclists, however, spring and autumn are recommended, when it is not too hot on the island yet.

Top 5 travel tips

1st Teide Nature Park

1. The largest and probably most popular nature park of the Canary Islands is the Teide. Its name comes from the Old Canary Islands and means "hell" in translation. According to tradition, this name refers to the volcanic activities on Tenerife. The park was declared a national park in 1954.

2. Fascinating moon landscape

Something very special on Tenerife is the already mentioned moon landscape. This consists of bizarre rock formations that were formed thanks to volcanic eruptions. If you didn't know better, you would think you were on the moon - the absolutely fascinating landscape is an experience for the whole family! After an adventurous day you can relax wonderfully in one of the great vacation rentals in the south of Tenerife.

3rd butterfly park

And also the butterfly park called Mariposario del Drago is a real highlight! This is the first park in Spain to deal exclusively with winged creatures. The Mariposario del Drago exists since 1997 and is one of the most popular sights of the island.

4. Fun and tradition at the carnival

Something we would also like to recommend to you is the carnival in Puerto de La Cruz. If you are in Tenerife from January to March, you can take part in the second largest carnival in the world. Here you will experience lots of cheerful events and a splendour of colour that is otherwise only to be found in Rio de Janeiro! Carnival has a long tradition in Tenerife.

5. Get up close and personal with sea giants

Whales are not only among the oldest living animals on our planet, but are also related to us humans. So it is a good thing that the huge marine mammals around the Canary Island run their "kindergartens" and raise large numbers of their young there. Board one of the many excursion boats and get close to pilot whales and pilot whales. With a little luck you will even be accompanied on your expedition by a few witty dolphins.
