Isle of Tenerife

Record number of Brits heading for the sun

In the great British Easter get-away stakes, Tenerife is leading the field.

According to ABTA (the Association of British Travel Agents) London’s three airports, Heathrow Gatwick and Stansted will preside over the departure of over a million sun-seeking passengers.

And the largest proportion of them will be heading for Tenerife, with the southern resorts of Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos likely to receive most of them.

Spain is also high on the list of popular holiday hot spots with Brits, followed by Turkey, Tunisia, Egypt and Morocco.

It’s all part of a record British Easter period, with around 2,500,000 want-aways set to leave the country by the weekend.

The UK Met Office is advising tourists to pack an umbrella and waterproofs as many European destinations are forecast to receive heavy rain over the next week.

However, those opting to spend their Easter break in Tenerife are unlikely to be disappointed. Apart from a few isolated showers on Saturday or Sunday, there is likely to be plenty of sunshine around right through the week.
