Why Move To Tenerife?
Are you searching for removals to Tenerife? (The Island of Eternal Spring) has been an attractive location for British expats for many years and is the most popular of the Canary Islands. It is the largest of the seven Canary Islands. The island is bathed in sunshine for most of the year. It attracts around five million tourists annually. Just a short flight from the UK taking around 4 hours, means that it is nice and close for family and friends who want to visit.
An increasing number of people from all over the world have relocated to Tenerife and have successfully opened businesses that cater for holidaymakers. ‘Overseas Imports’ is an example of this. Selling a range of products imported from British supermarkets such as Iceland and Tesco’s. Goods are a bit more expensive here but some items such as Marmite cannot be replicated. There is a very big expat community which makes it very easy to make new friends. The lifestyle is typically Mediterranean and a lot of time is spent outside.
Summer temperatures hardly ever exceed 30ºC (86ºF) and winter daytime temperatures rarely fall below 22ºC (72ºF), making it a great place to bring up your children.

Removals Tenerife – Property Market
The approach to buying property in Tenerife is similar to the UK and elsewhere in Europe. Most property is transacted through estate agents, who are usually bi-lingual, and very knowledgeable about the local housing market. You will need to appoint a solicitor to deal with the legal aspects of the move. Mortgages can be granted in Tenerife and again it is advisable to speak to an agent who can speak English to avoid problems. The estate agents in Tenerife are more than happy to drive you to a selection of properties which suit your needs.

Removals Tenerife – Leisure Activities
Tenerife is the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, off West Africa and is dominated by Mt. Teide, which rises 7,500m above the ocean floor and is among the world’s largest volcanoes. The island is best known for its huge pre-Lent Carnival, as well as its beaches (with sands ranging from yellow to black) and the popular and busy holiday resorts, including Los Cristianos and Playa de las Américas. Tenerife offers a wide range of four- and five-star hotels, chic boutiques, bars and restaurants.
On the south-east coast the resort of El Médano is fanned by almost constant trade winds attracting surfers and still retains a Canarian culture. It also boasts some of the best natural beaches on the island.
You will find plenty of things to do in your down time. Having a car is essential and driving enables you to see the natural beauty of the Island. Here are some of the most popular attractions:
•Siam Park is a water park with a Thai theme. It has plenty of slides, pools, a wave machine and an artificial river.
•Loro Zoo started as a Parrot sanctuary but has grown considerably over the years. It features an aquatic world with dolphins, sharks and penguins. You can book a safari, or experience an evening excursion to the castle at San Miguel and watch the knights jousting and fighting battles.
•Going to the beach is of course, a popular pastime. Most people tend to think that Tenerife’s beaches are all black sand but this is incorrect. There are lots of beaches which feature golden sands. Most of the beaches also have excellent facilities such as sun loungers for hire, showers, changing rooms and lots of al fresco beach style eateries.
•Shopping is a great experience and there are plenty of places to indulge in this activity. El Corte Ingles is a well-known store in the centre of Santa Cruz offering a complete range of upmarket products. Plaza del Duque is a sophisticated shopping mall situated in the Adeje area in the south of the island, featuring not only brand name shops, but also some fine restaurants, bars and clubs.
Removals Tenerife – Education & Schools
You will of course want to ensure that your children receive the best education possible whilst living in Tenerife. The Spanish state schools are free to attend if you are a resident. However, unlike schools in the UK you have to supply all the necessary books and materials for your child. Some schools insist on a uniform but most do not. Primary school starts at the age of 6 to 11 years; secondary school caters for ages 12 to 16 years.
Further education is not compulsory for 17 to 18 year olds unless they want to go onto university. Private schools are an option but can prove to be expensive. There are a few international schools to choose from, but these are also very costly. Most estate agents can assist with information on local schools in the areas.
