Tenerife tourism at terrific heights
With breathtaking scenery and a sunny setting it’s not hard to see why Tenerife is a popular destination, but the recent rise in visitors is certainly something to write about. The Tenerife Tourism Corporation has noted that an incredible 1,658,315 UK holidaymakers visited Tenerife last year, and this is certainly reflected in statistic from Pure Holiday Homes. Listed on the site there are 502 properties in the Canary Islands, 160 of which are in Tenerife. This January, 62% of enquiries for the Canary Islands were for Tenerife specifically, doubling from 34% at the beginning 2010. And 55% of these enquiries were for seven day bookings, meaning that Tenerife really is a top choice for main holiday bookings rather than just short breaks.
Sean Collins, CEO of Pure Holiday Homes has commented that ‘Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and by far the most popular. We saw enquiries increase by 23% between January 2010 and January 2011. It is attracting a great deal of holidaymakers and pureholidayhomes.com is living up to the demand’.
With beautiful accommodation matching equally desirable prices, it is easy to see why Tenerife is on the up. An apartment sleeping four in Puerto de Santiago, South Tenerife (property ref. 30581) can be booked all year round at prices ranging from just £225- £275 per week. For such a low cost you can enjoy beautiful mountain views, sandy beaches within a close distance, sports and pool facilities, lovely restaurants and spacious, comfortable accommodation. Alternatively, a rural villa sleeping five in Icod de los Vinos, North Tenerife (property ref. 30006) offers a quaint and rustic base to explore the Northern Coast and dramatic panoramic views over the Atlantic Ocean. This retreat offers beautiful accommodation in a secluded location, which is still close enough to local beaches and a golf course. And all for just 69€- 79€ per week between March and April this year.
It is clear to see that Tenerife offers both a sense of luxury and an ideal sunny location which UK holidaymakers crave, at a very reasonable price. Pure Holiday Homes is catering for this desire well, providing holidaymakers with a wide variety of properties in this increasingly popular holiday destination.
