Whilst talk in the UK this summer has been dominated by the surprise of the Brexit vote and the subsequent uncertainty of its implications, talk in Tenerife has been of the record breaking number of visitors flocking to this, the most popular of the sunshine islands of the Canarian archipelago.
With the fluctuating exchange rate many would have perhaps predicted a downturn in British holidaymakers venturing to Europe however the official tourism figures, at least those for the Canary Islands, would suggest the absolute opposite!
Whilst the Brits have a long standing love affair with Tenerife and were perhaps among the first to discover its charms, the island of eternal spring is inevitably popular with tourists and visitors from all over Europe and beyond looking for year round sun, stunning natural landscapes and much more.
With new direct flights being added all the time, including recently added routes de Budapest, Reykjavik and Porto and many new lines to cities in Germany, Britain and mainland Spain, Tenerife is constantly opening doors and expanding markets.
Tenerife and the Canary Islands have not just been opening avenues into new international markets but have been working hard to appeal to new and alternative types of tourism. Some of the biggest increases in demand have been in LGBT focused destinations and a large increase in ecological tourism just going to show the broad appeal that this island offers.
With a tourism boom also follows an increase in demand in the housing market. Whilst people enjoy their hard earned holidays who could help but be tempted to browse in estate agents windows and dream of owning their own little corner of paradise. Be it an apartment on a family friendly holiday resort, a remote finca with an orchard or a modern villa overlooking a golf course, Tenerife offers the chance to make a reality of whatever your property dream may be.
With the increased diversity of visitors to Tenerife has also come the increased variety of demand for the types of location and properties that are being snapped up. Whilst in years gone by the focus of many property searches, particularly to overseas buyers, were the traditional resorts of Los Cristianos or Playa de Las Americas or the more German centred area of Puerto de la Cruz recently there has been an expansion into newly developing areas and a far more international crowd looking to invest into the stunning northern coast.
