Tenerife in a nutshell

Mirador Teresitas

Although the largest of the Canary Islands has a reputation as a destination for beach bums, it would be a shame to think of it as just an island of beaches, as Tenerife is a paradise not only for lovers of sea waves and the ocean, but above all beautiful nature and hiking. After all, it is here that the highest mountain in Spain, the 3,718-metre-high Pico de Teide, is located.

The cheapest accommodation in Tenerife

The island has something for everyone - lovers of quiet beach holidays, active tourism, colonial history and city life. In addition, Tenerife's consistently favourable climate makes it a good destination for visits all year round.
