As the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, Tenerife has lots to offer for every type of holidaymaker. From its beautiful beaches to its volcanic landscapes, the island is a great place to explore with the whole family or on a more intimate break for two. It’s an all-round fantastic holiday destinations – check out our 6 key reasons why!
1. It’s got a (dormant) volcano!
Tenerife is largely dominated by Mount Teide, its dormant volcano and Spain’s tallest peak. The imposing Mount Teide rises over 3,700 metres above sea level from a large volcanic depression located at an altitude of 2,000 metres. A visit to Teide National Park is a must on your Tenerife getaway, where you can gaze over a breath-taking landscape of volcanoes, craters and rivers of petrified lava on guided walks. It’s certainly Tenerife’s most popular tourist attraction!
2. Vibrant capital city
Santa Cruz, Tenerife’s vibrant capital located on the eastern tip of the island, is a great place to visit during your trip to the island. The cosmopolitan city offers countless activities and landmarks to explore – on foot or on an open bus tour is best! The auditorium Auditorio de Tenerife is a popular destination, as well as the museum Museo de la Naturaleza y el Hombre and botanical garden Palmetum of Santa Cruz. There’s simply too much to see in just one day in Santa Cruz!
3. Home to two World Heritage Sites
Tenerife is home to two World Heritage sites worthy of visiting during your holiday; the historic city of San Cristóbal de La Laguna in the north and Teide National Park, the largest park on the island. San Cristóbal de La Laguna is home to many of the island’s significant religious buildings, such as La Laguna Cathedral.
4. Great for water sports
The island’s gorgeous year-round climate and warm waters create brilliant water sports opportunities, from snorkelling to windsurfing on many of its great beaches. Tenerife also offers some of the best water parks in Europe, including Siam Park and Aqualand, both in Costa Adeje, on the south west coast. These are sure to cool you down on a summer holiday here, where the average temperature is 23*C (and high of 28*C!).
5. Carnival fun
Many traditional festivals and carnivals have been preserved in Tenerife. The renowned Carnaval de Santa Cruz, held each February, brings together people from all over the world in particular. The carnival involves shows, parades, dance, music and planned parties on the streets in the day and night.
6. Stunning beaches
As with most of the Canary Islands, the brilliant year-round climate offers hours and hours of sunshine on your days at the beach! Tenerife boasts many beautiful beaches, from the Playa de la Tejita, one of the largest natural beaches on the island, to Playa Fañabe, popular amongst jet-skiiers in particular. Whether you prefer to relax on soft, golden sands or have a go at watersports on your holiday, the beach for you is waiting in Tenerife!
