Tips for the Region

Tenerife offers visitors some of the most varied landscapes on the Canary Islands. The island is spread around the towering Pico del Teide, the highest mountain in Spain and largest volcano of the islands in the Atlantic. To the north you should not miss the incredible Anaga Mountains. Take your car rental on a road trip in Tenerife on the TF-12 that winds its way through the Anaga range for incredible vistas. Hikers will want to try out some of the fantastic trails in this area.

We also recommend taking your car rental on a trip to the Teno Massif in the northwest. It is another of the volcanic formations that formed the island and the surrounding park also has some incredible hiking trails. If you drive up to the northwest be sure to check out the Punta de Teno headland and take an enchanting stroll up to the lighthouse. The views over the ocean and surrounding mountains are astounding.

Important Cities

Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz is the capital of Tenerife and its most populous city. Located in the northeast, it makes a great base to explore the Anaga Mountains while standout eateries, shops, museums and parks make it a destination of its own. Make sure you check out the Auditorio de Tenerife, an iconic arts center with stunning architecture, and also head down to the historic Plaza de EspaƱa for some of the most important buildings in the city, and the incredible fountain built by architects Herzog & de Meuron.

La Laguna

Colorful and historic, La Laguna is possibly the most beautiful town on the island. Nestled in stunning countryside the drive to La Laguna alone is enough to charm. The Old Town dates back to the 15th Century and the town has UNESCO world heritage status.

Los Gigantes

Los Gigantes is an impressive resort town in the south of the island, famous for its amazing cliffs; the Acantilados de Los Gigantes. We highly recommend taking the road trip on Tenerife from Los Gigantes to Tamaimo to get the best views of these magnificent giants. The black sand beach in Los Gigantes is also terrific while the town has plenty of excellent natural seawater lidos. One the best pools is the Isla Cangrejo situated on the road out to Puerto de Santiago

Climate, Cuisine & Traveling with Children

Climate

Tenerife has fantastic beach weather all year round with summer highs of 84 degrees F and a low rainfall. Surprisingly for an island on the same latitude as the Sahara, you can find snow on Tenerife at the top of Mount Teide, during the winter months. Winters on the coast still have an average high of 70 degrees F.

Cuisine

Thanks to an abundance of fish the seafood on Tenerife is exquisite. Also expect to find plenty of goat and rabbit as well as pork, especially during festivities. Mojos are hot peppery sauces that come as an accompaniment with almost everything and you can expect a huge variety of colors and flavors to dip your bread into. The Canary Islands are also known for their excellent goat cheese.

Traveling with Children

With its excellent beaches, amazing geological formations and impressive mountain ranges, a road trip on Tenerife is enough to enthrall children. There are plenty of opportunities for activities such as horse and camel rides, watersports and swimming while there are some pretty good water and adventure parks dotted throughout the island.
