THE ISLAND

Golden beaches

The coming and going of the waves, the sea breeze, sand between your toes and sun on your skin. “Get your towel and lie down” the beaches seem to suggest until the sun reaches the horizon and the night falls. The charm of Tenerife is in its coastline and its climate, believed to be the best in the world by its residents and the more than five million holidaymakers that visit yearly.

Smile and let yourself enjoy every curve, every path, enjoy the views and, once you have reached your destination, embrace the Atlantic. The majority of the beaches fly a distinctive blue flag to confirm the quality of the water: in the south, you will find the golden sand beaches, among which are El Médano, Las Vistas, Fañabé and Torviscas. Owing to the volcanic origin of the archipelago, you can also bathe on beaches of black sand. Go for a walk in the north and submerge yourself in the natural surroundings of Playa Jardín in Puerto de la Cruz and El Socorro en los Realejos. More intrepid visitors are recommended to visit El Bollullo and Los Patos, two of the northern coast’s best kept secrets.

El Teide, a king and his crown

Gigantic, majestic, imposing, father and grandfather. There are many nouns and adjectives which can be sued to describe El Teide, the highest peak in Spain and the symbol of Tenerife. At 3718 metres high, it reaches from the depths of the island to softly touch the sky.

Are you adventurous? Explore the peak, climb its slopes to the top, stop in the Refugio de Altavista; relax and enjoy the breath-taking views: those who reach the top are left breathless. To appreciate the range of colours to be found, don’t hesitate to ride the cable car which will leave just 200 metres from the top.

A UNESCO Heritage site since 2007, the history of the volcano exudes greatness: scientists and explorers such as Charles Darwin and Alexander Von Humboldt recounted its splendour and enigmatic naturalness.

If you are lucky and find yourself in one of the viewing points that line the way to El Teide, you can observe and photograph one of the most marvellous images of the island: the mountain, supposedly sleeping, resting in its throne with its crown of clouds, like a king in his palace, presiding over his kingdom.

A world of flavours

Tenerife is not just about the beach and the sun which drenches its coasts. Along with its excellent climate and natural beauty, there is also a touch of flavour: a mix of the traditional and the vanguard which captivates those who enjoy good cuisine.

Fish with potatoes and mojo, toasted meal, cheese and honey. The products of the land, recently brought from the local markets and stalls, are a symbol of identity of the Islander’s cuisine. The Canarian tables take on the appearance of a chameleon when it’s time to eat: with colours ranging from ochre to fire-red, including intense greens and blues that enchant the senses and captivate even the most demanding palates.

Just like at grandma’s house. The locals represent the art of the island’s cuisine better than any. Here, you can have your fill in a cool climate and at affordable prices, as well as trying the illustrious Tenerife wines. Their fame speaks for themselves: in the island alone there are five protected products: Tacoronte-Acentejo, Ycoden-Daute-Isora, Valle de Güímar, Valle de la Orotava and Abona. Sip by sip, bite by bite, Tenerife is waiting to be tasted.
