Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands has just about everything a visitor to a holiday destination could ask for. With a sub-tropical climate and over 350 kilometres of coastline, it is not surprising that Tenerife has become one of the most popular and established holiday destinations in Europe. But there is a far more to the island than just sun and beaches. Tenerife offers tropical gardens, mountain walks with spectacular views, designer shopping, water sports, boat trips, great food and in many of the resorts there is a vibrant nightlife.
With some of the budget airlines adding Tenerife to their schedules, Tenerife has become easily accessible and more and more people are discovering the charms of this sub tropical island.
The 2 largest resorts on Tenerife are Playa de las Americas and the adjacent town of Los Christianos. Playa de las Americas is a purpose built resort which was developed in the 1960's when tourism came to the island. Younger generations are attracted to the nightclubs of the Veronicas Strip area of the resort.
Pico Del Teide is Spain's highest mountain (it is actually volcanic but hasn't erupted since 1909) and is surrounded by a landscape of rock formations in spectacular volcanic colors. The El Teide National Park which surrounds the mountain was declared a World Heritage Site in 2007.
Santa Cruz De Tenerife has an annual carnival in February. If you are looking for a winter break with a lively nightlife, this is the perfect time to visit the island. Temperatures should be warm, and the street carnival has a reputation second only to Rio
El Teide - take the cable car ride to close to the summit of this mountain. If you do manage to climb up to the summit, you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of the island.
In the sub-tropical gardens at Puerto de la Cruz you could be mistaken for thinking that you had wandered into a tropical rain forest. Due to the warm climate and island location, there are many species of plants and insects that you won't find anywhere in mainland Europe.
Things to do
Tenerife is one of the best places in Europe for scuba diving. Even if you are a novice, there are lots of opportunities for beginners.
Things to eat
There are plenty of local fish dishes in the Canary Islands - Cazuela de Pescado is a casserole made with fish and vegetables.
When to visit
Due to their southerly location, the Canary Islands have a warm year-round climate, with typical winter daytime temperatures reaching the lower to mid 20's, making the islands the warmest winter destination in all of Europe. This makes Tenerife an ideal winter holiday destination. In summer the temperatures are moderated by sea breezes, so whenever you go you will be sure of warm weather.
