Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands. The southern part of the island is famous for its fantastic holiday resorts and beaches. In addition to the sand and sea, destinations like Las Américas and Los Cristianos offer everything from quality shopping, restaurants and vibrant nightlife to golf courses and waterparks.
The capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the cultural hub of the island with an atmosphere quite different from the south. Visit the Auditorio de Tenerife, a unique modern structure that hosts music and theatre performances. The most anticipated event of the year in the city is definitely the Carnival of Santa Cruz. Near Santa Cruz you can also find the beautiful old towns of La Laguna and La Orotava, of which the former is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The most prominent feature of Tenerife is El Teide, the world’s third largest volcano. If you’re up to the ascent, you’ll be rewarded with a magnificent view over the entire island. Loro Parque is a good place to see wildlife, boasting for example 350 different species of parrots. The island also offers great opportunities for water sports and mountain biking. When you crave some tasty food, you can get plenty of fresh fish anywhere on the island, and of course some delicious Spanish tapas.
