The largest of the Canary Islands is an ideal destination for any type of traveler. The entertainment offer is such that it will suit every taste. It doesn’t matter whether you’re planning a romantic getaway with your partner, a vacation with children or spending a week with a group of friends to have fun … Tenerife is your destination.
The volcanic landscapes are mesmerizing for any viewer. The Cañadas de Teide, with 18,990 hectares above an altitude of 1,650 meters, where ochre and yellow hues are predominant, will catch everyone’s eye. The Teide, a volcano reaching up 3,718 meters, is the highest mountain peak in Spain. If you go in the winter you can enjoy the view of the peak blanketed in snow and the centellada, large ice crystals that are formed on rocks and plants.
The island also features cities such as La Laguna, in the northern part of Tenerife, which is included on the World Heritage List, and Puerto de la Cruz, with the spectacular Martiánez Lake, a singular ensemble designed by César Manrique, the Lanzarote born sculptor and painter. Make it a point to visit the natural swimming holes of El Guindaste, the Cliff of los Gigantes, the Millennary Drago Tree and the Botanical Gardens.
In the southern part of the island you will come across golden beaches, in sharp contrast with the dark sand found in the north. Here surf lovers or those fond of any type of water sports will wallow in happiness. Surfers should make way for Médano Beach, which is several miles long. At Playa de las Américas, the center of tourism in Tenerife, you will find Puerto Colón, the most important pleasure harbor on the island.
Besides all this, Tenerife is blessed with ideal weather year round, being as it is the island of eternal spring. What more can you ask for?
