The Canary Islands are one of the most visited regions of the world among British holidaymakers and with so many superb beaches and top class resorts it is not difficult to understand why. Additionally, the weather is reliably hot and sunny, even in the winter months when most other parts of the EU are at least a little chilly.
Among the Spanish islands that sit just off the coast of West Africa, Tenerife is the largest and has the most inhabitants. Its resorts are as every bit as good as any you’ll find in other parts of the Canaries or around the Mediterranean and for many families it is the best place to enjoy a holiday together.
There are plenty of great value offers on trips to the sun-soaked Canary Islands available throughout the year but when it comes to Tenerife holidays all inclusive deals are perhaps the most enticing. All inclusive deals after all give visitors every chance to enjoy their holiday to the very fullest extent without the worry of over-stretching financially. So you can relax by the pool or a beautiful beach safe in the knowledge that there wont be any nasty surprises the next time you check your bank balance.
Like Tenerife, Gran Canaria is a hugely popular holiday destination boasting all the sunshine, water sports, range of restaurants and night-life that hard-to-please tourists have come to expect. In fact, for Gran Canaria family holidays are something of specialist area with so much for children of all ages and for adults to enjoy each and every time they visit. All within just a few hours flight time of a string of regional UK airports, both Tenerife and Gran Canaria are well worth considering as the destination for your next family getaway.

When it comes to holidaying in the Canary Islands there are plenty of different holiday experiences on offer. Whether you opt for holidays to Lanzarote and soak up its craggy volcanic landscape, spend time on Fuerteventura’s beautiful sandy beaches with the latest bestseller, or take a trip to Tenerife’s spectacular Mount Teide National Park, a holiday in the Canary Islands promises to be a diverse experience that will leave you with many wonderful memories.
Happily, this sun-drenched archipelago is a popular holiday destination which makes it easily accessible and affordable too. Take Tenerife for example. Beyond its reputation as a top spot for nightlife with a world-famous clubbing scene, Tenerife appeals for many more reasons and has become a great destination for all types of holidays. Families in particular come to the quieter resorts for its great family entertainment, water parks, local activities and excellent hotels with facilities for all ages.
For those on a budget, you won’t have to look too far to find cheap Tenerife offers. If you choose to go down the do-it-yourself route you’ll find plenty of low-cost scheduled flights and a wide range of accommodation on the island, on everything from self-catering and room-only apartments to full-board and all-inclusive hotels. Or you could choose the easy route and opt for a package holiday where your accommodation, flights and resort transfers are all included in the cost.
With a package break you’ll often find many heavily discounted holidays, especially as you get closer to the departure date. Tour operators prefer to sell the packages at rock-bottom prices rather than let the hotel rooms go vacant, so you can usually grab yourself a great deal just by holding out and booking a week or two prior to departure. It might mean you have less choice but if price is top of your agenda, it’s usually well worth it.
