Where in Tenerife is a good place to visit?

I'm looking for somewhere that has fun things to do to, like a water park, good beaches, places to shop and eat, maybe water sports like jet skiing and and para sailing or something if they have that in Tenerife? I'm British but I'm not one of those annoying drunk brits that gets drunk all week. Where should I go?

    There are so many different parts of the island to go to with different attractions now. I don't know if you're looking for a hotel or an apartment so here are a few ideas.

    Costa Adeje (formerly Torviscas) is a newly constructed area with a lot of four star deluxe and five star hotels. It's a lovely area with nice beaches, restaurants and bars. There aren't many apartment complexes in the Costa Adeje area, they're mostly in Playa de las Americas although some of them now have an address of Costa Adeje. All the hotels in the Costa Adeje area are highly recommended. Puerto Colon is close by with a nice beach, lots of boat trips, parasailing and jet skis.

    Playa de las Americas has always had the Veronicas tag but it has been cleaned up a lot in the last few years. Again there are nice beaches in the area. There are two water parks in Playa de las Americas, Siam Park (http://www.siampark,net) a newly opened water park with something for all ages and meant to be one of the best water parks in Europe and then you have the smaller Aqualand with a dolphin show ( If you want a family orientated hotel then I'd recommend the Bitacora or for a more "couply" hotel, try the Vulcano ( Both of these are in a great location, near to beaches and some great restaurants and bars. The closest beach to these is Las Vistas between Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos, it's one of the nicest beaches in the south I think and there are water sports available. Jet skis, pedalos, the usual beach stuff and it's about a 20 minute walk to Veronicas if you do want the odd night out on the town although as I say, there are nice bars just a five minute walk from both these hotels. This is always the area I'd recommend.

    There are loads of things to do in Tenerife. Loro Parque (, a trip up Mount Teide in the cable car, jeep safaris, medieval nights, I could go on but you can book all these trips with either your tour operator or hotel reception.

    As I say, I don't know what kind of accommodation you're looking for..... I could go on for ages (used to work for a tour operator here) telling you about what to do and where to go but you'll just get fed up reading.

    My top list of hotels

    Vulcano (4*)

    Bitacora (4*)

    La Siesta (4*)

    Anthelia Park (4*)

    Torviscas Playa (4*)

    and apartments

    Parque Santiago 3, great location right on the beach.

    Anyway, hope some of this has helped, won't bore you any longer!

    The first answerer (Mum to Elena etc) has given a marvellous, comprehensive response, but, to appreciate all that Tenerife has to offer, you need referring to a specialist website.

    I lived in Tenerife 11 years and have a website telling you pretty much all you need to know about the island.

    Why not give it a once-over?
