With a stable temperature and dependable year-round sunshine, as well as a healthy attitude to leisure time, it’s no wonder that Tenerife enjoys such unwavering popularity. As well as being the largest and most populous of the Canary Islands, it’s also the most visited, with around five million visitors a year who come to stretch out on white, sandy beaches and soak in the dramatic scenery of the Teide National Park. The island’s dramatic volcanic landscapes, and the lava fields at its heart, contrast starkly with the tranquil lifestyle to be found on Tenerife. Here, the focus is on good food, a slow pace of life and enjoying leisure activities like golf, walking and scuba-diving.
It’s easy to see Tenerife as just a slice of holiday paradise, but it’s also a fantastic place to invest in a second home or retirement home. There’s a large and friendly expat community well established on the island to help you settle into that easy-going lifestyle. The “Los Jardines de Abama” development, located on the sunny south of the island in Abama Resort, would make the perfect base.
