When: If you want to watch the surfing championships then visit in July. But, if you want to avoid the kids and crowded beaches then go during term time. The weather will still be great.
Where: Head to the old town port within Corralejo which isn’t as busy as the main parts of the town. This way you will be able to enjoy some relaxation, but aren’t a million miles away if you’re craving some action...of any variety.
Why: You will be able to spend the day exploring the volcanic island before heading down the main strip to make a few friends over a couple drinks. However, if you’re on the pull, then go to Playa De Las Americas in Tenerife.
When: Get that tan looking awesome to show off to your mates back home by heading in peak season when the sun is scorching. You will notice your tan in just a few hours; just remember the sun cream – burnt skin is not attractive.
Where: Stay as close to the main Centro Comercial Atlantico strip as possible. You want to be close to the main nightlife so you don’t have to spend a fortune on a taxi fare before your night out has even started.
Why: If you love your water sports and want to enjoy plenty of great Spanish bars in the evening, then this resort will be great. The active groups will love this town, but the party animals who don’t really want to do anything else should probably head to Ibiza or Magaluf.
When: Make the most of your couples holiday together, not with thousands of families. So, go in May or September.
Where: If you’re a couple that likes your cocktails then feel free to stay close to the main centre. However, for a bit of romance, the Corralejo harbour is the ideal setting.
Why: Enjoy a hike together around the volcanic terrain and admire the spectacular views together. Or, just kiss on the beach all day if you guys fancy a lazy couple’s getaway.
When: Make the most of the best weather and go in July or August. That way the kids won’t fall behind at school either. Can you imagine if you had to take their homework with you?
Where: Stay close to the central strip. This is where most of the amusement arcades are which the kids will love. If you’re looking for a more relaxed break then the original fishing port is for you.
Why: The kids will love splashing around on the main Town Beach before heading to the Oasis Park Zoo. In the evening, why not book the youngsters in for a round of ten pin bowling, while you watch from the bar with a jug of sangria?
