Where is Tenerife?
Tenerife is one of the largest islands among Spain’s infamous Canary islands. The name is very fitting for its golden sands and spectacular array of wildlife. The Canary Islands are located off the coast of West Africa and provide tourists with the perfect location for the sun.
Why is Tenerife perfect for a luxury holiday?
There are many reasons why you should jump on board a plane headed to this stunning part of the world. If you dream of golden sands, glorious food, culture and natural beauty, then this is the place for you.
Tenerife is famous for being the home of golden sands and blue seas, perfect for swimming or topping up your tan. The beaches in Tenerife can become a little crowded during the peak holiday season, but there are plenty to choose from along the coast, so you are sure to find a quiet spot away from other tourists.
Popular beaches in Tenerife include Playa de Los Guíos in Los Gigantes, which is located amongst the stunning natural cliffs that make up the island’s coastline. The sea here is incredibly calm, so great for snorkelling or other types of water sports. This beach is also one of the smaller ones that Tenerife has to offer, so it’s a good place to spot wildlife. El Puertito is another highly recommended beach near Playa de las Americas. It’s the home of a colony of sea turtles, which you can spot from the shoreline or glide alongside them underwater.
Many of the eateries in Tenerife serve traditional Spanish cuisine, such as tapas dishes. The island also enjoys making the most of local delicacies including many of the fruits that can be grown on the island, such as papayas.
Tourists staying in Tenerife can eat luxurious meals for just a small price. All of the food on the island is affordable yet never skimps on quality. Tapas is ideal for those who want to explore new foods but aren’t entirely sure what to settle on. You could share several dishes between the group and get a taste of all that Spanish cuisine has to offer. Dining in a tapas restaurant makes for the perfect evening of culture and delicious food.
