Tenerife is a miniature paradise, full of unbelievable landscapes in the shadow of the imposing figure of Mount Teide. Over 300 sunny days each year, 342km of coast, dozens of spectacular beaches and an average temperature of 22°C. An island with a natural, cultural and historical heritage that is as impressive as it is broad, where even entire cities, like San Cristóbal de La Laguna have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Tenerife’s most popular destinations are in the south of the island, where the sun alays shines, the coastline is spectacular, and the infinite promenades are waiting to be walked. Costa Adeje, Los Cristianos and Las Americas are the most popular destinations in the south of the island. Not to exclude the north of Tenerife though, exemplified by Puerto de la Cruz and Garachico, which show that it has no need to be envious of the south.
Not to forget the many charms of the Metropolitan Area, where you can find the capital Santa Cruz, as well as San Cristobal de La Laguna, a World Heritage Site.
And beyond the crowds in the tourist areas hide Tenerife’s towns and villages, authentic havens of tranquillity and beauty. From the coast to the interior, from north to south, each town is a world in itself, and each one surprises us with the little details full of Canarian flavour that shine through with their own light.
