Look up to the UK skies today and you will notice that they are free of clouds and a lovely blue colour! It’s a rare sight at this time of year and the weather reporters tell us it is here for a week, with temperatures reaching 21c. Of course we all love a little autumn sun, however the problem with our UK weather is that it can change within hours and we never really believe what the weather reporters tell us, even though we really do want too!
One place that is guaranteed to give us warm temperatures and sunny skies at this time of year is the Canary Islands. The islands are a popular holiday destination throughout the summer months but they really excel in visitors throughout our winter period and it’s that guarantee of sunshine that keeps us Brits coming back year after year.
Looking for a perfect companion to the sun? We have the solution: sand! Holiday with a car hire in Tenerife and tour the island’s fantastic beaches. Top on our list is the gorgeous Teresitas Beach (photo 1), located along the islands east coast. The beach has a stunning island backdrop, palm trees, a crystal blue lagoon and here’s the biggest surprise: it is man-made with Saharan sands!
El Puertito beach is located in the south and has a traditional feel to the beach and the surrounding area. It’s a simple place with whitewashed buildings and quaint restaurant; we would recommend this beach for the romantics!
Tenerife is famous for its black beaches. Now don’t let the thought of black sand put you off the Playa de la Arena beach. Located on the west coast, the beach has the most hours of sunshine than any other beach on the island, plus you have breath-taking views over to the island of La Gomera and can enjoy stunning sunsets.
When holidaying on such a beautiful island you really do need a Spain car hire to get the most from your holiday. Who wants to just look at a hotel pool for 7 days, get out an explore we say!
