Tenerife Canary Islands Spain

Tenerife is one of the 8 Canary Islands and probably one of the most popular ones. One of the highlights is the Teide Volcano. Various tour operators offer day trips to the top of the Teide Volcano with spectacular views over Tenerife.

Tenerife may be best known for its Carnaval de Santa Cruz, a huge pre-Lent festival with parades, music, dancing and colorful costumes. The island has many beaches (with sands from yellow to black) and resort areas, including Los Cristianos and Playa de las Américas. These resort areas are very popular with European holiday makers. Due to the mild climate all year, you can visit the Canary Islands all year round.

It’s really worth to rent a car and go around the island. Tenerife, like Gran Canaria, got its own ‘Climate’. It is more green and moist than Lanzarote and Fuerteventura for example. Those islands are also volcanic but dirt dry.

More to come.
