Drive or hike through the spectacular volcanic landscape of Teide National Park to majestic Mount Teide. Admire the striking architecture of the Auditorio de Tenerife opera house or the dramatic beauty of the Los Gigantes cliffs. Take in breathtaking scenery on walks through Anaga Rural Park and Masca Gorge.
Wander around the delightful historic quarter of Puerto de la Cruz, stopping at the beautiful Chapel of San Telmo or for lunch at 18th-century Casa Miranda. Admire the colonial-style buildings in Costa Adeje or discover a wealth of historic monuments alongside modern museums in cosmopolitan Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Tenerife offers a wide variety of dining options, from haute cuisine to rustic Canarian dishes. Try salty ‘papas arrugadas’ potatoes with fiery ‘mojo’ sauce. Or sample sweet chocolate-coated almonds and banana liquor. Sun-soaked grapes nurtured in volcanic soil have resulted in superb Tenerife wines that simply must be tried.
With half of the island covered by National Parks or nature reserves, Tenerife offers an amazing abundance of flora, fauna and scenic splendour. A wide network of walking trails provide fantastic wildlife-spotting opportunities, while dolphins and whales can be glimpsed frolicking in the surf around the southern coast.
Costa Adeje boasts some of the best beaches in Tenerife, including the Blue Flag-accredited Torviscas, Fañabe and El Duque. Stretch out on glorious golden sands at Las Vistas in Los Cristianos. Or escape the larger crowds at the black volcanic beach of La Arena, in charming Puerto de Santiago.
Enjoy a 360 degree view of the capital of the Canary Islands aboard an open-top, double-decker bus. Explore Santa Cruz at your own pace by hopping on and off as many times as you like at 11 stops around the city. Visit the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Concepción, Santa Cruz’s oldest church, and the 17th-century Castillo de San Juan. Admire the stunning opera house and take a stroll through the beautiful Parque Garcia Sanabria.
