Largest of the islands, where you can watch whales off the coast, explore Inca-style pyramids in the mountains, throw snowballs on Mount Teide (over 12,000 ft) and then swim in the sea: all on the same day, almost any day of the year!
Tenerife's beach and nightlife has something for everyone. On the southwest, Playa de las Americas has the biggest range of accommodation, from de-luxe hotels to economical apartments.
Neighbouring Los Cristianos is both a quieter, smaller resort and ferry terminal for connections to the smaller islands.
On the northwest coast are both the spectacular towering cliffs and small resort of Los Gigantes.
On the southeast, the Costa del Silencio stretches from Las Galletas to El Medano. Here you'll find the best fish restaurants: try Avencio at El Medano, or Rinconcito at Los Abrigos.
Mount Teide, a dormant volcano and National Park, influences the weather: the north is more temperate so the land is green and fertile, while the south is technically semi-arid desert - ideal for sunbathing but cultivation needs artificial irrigation. The interior has spectacular scenery where we also offer a choice of very pleasant rural hotels.
Puerto de la Cruz is the elegant resort of the north that also has the unmissable Loro Parque.
