Tenerife Diving Holidays

Tenerife has become a hugely popular destination for British travelers and one look at a map reveals why. Sitting just off the Africa’s northern coast, the Canary Islands enjoy a warm climate with hardly any rainfall all year round. With a rich history and strong ties to Spain, the Canary Islands have been formed through volcanic action and no where is this more evident than on Tenerife. Tenerifes landscape is dramatic yet ruggedly beautiful with some of the best beaches you will find anywhere in the entire region. From black volcanic sands to the golden playas of Las Americas sun worshipers will be in heaven. Tenerife lies in the south east corner of the island right at the heart of all the action and only a short 4 hour flight from the UK.

Tenerife is not just suited to sun lovers. The island is surrounded by gorgeous Atlantic seas that hide away reef, caves and wreck dives. The visibility remains good all year round, to match the weather on top, and there is some marvelous marine life beneath the waves. The rare and unusual looking angel shark breeds around the island. Underwater is a nirvana for all manner of crustaceans, octopus, cuttlefish and morays. Barracuda, grunt fish , grouper and Atlantic rays also inhabit the reef bottoms and cave systems that penetrate the island core. No mater if you are on a family holiday or a dedicated dive trip, Tenerife has everything you will need to ensure your holiday meets all your expectations… and beyond.
