Experience one of the most beautiful and well-equipped beaches in the world. Enjoy incredible and beautiful natural landscapes. Explore the history and traditions of the island and visit the most significant historical sites. Appreciate the excellent Spanish cuisine in the cozy restaurants by the ocean.
Tenerife is the largest and most hospitable island of the Canary archipelago. It is called "the island of eternal spring" for a reason: the air temperature does not sink under +20° in winter and remains at about +25° in summer. Here you can find entertainment for every taste, from a relaxing family holiday in Puerto de la Cruz to unforgettable diving in the south-western part of the island, from the bustling resorts of Las Americas and Costa Adeje to the sands of Playa de la Arena considered to have healing powers.
Tenerife offers thousands of interesting landscapes. The steep and rocky shores in the north of the island are strikingly contrasted with the landscapes of the southern beaches. In the depths of the island you will find green forests and even “alpine fields”. And the cities will present a meeting with the historical heritage of the ancient sellers who sent their goods to the New World through Tenerife and the Atlantic Ocean.
Tenerife attracts millions of tourists with its rich nature, authentic architecture, stunning climate and great beaches, but another significant factor of popularity is the traditional Spanish cuisine, which today is not much different from the old, original, tasty and simple farmer's one. Fresh greens, goat cheese, farm bread, olives, fish dishes, cider and sangria wine - any restaurant on the seashore offers these sunsoaked treats.
Tenerife is too different to get bored, too beautiful to get tired, the island guarantes the car-traveler the exciting impressions and needing to get some new flash cubes.
