Introduction to Tenerife

Tenerife is the largest and most popular of the Canary Islands. It has springtime climates all the year round with little rainfall.

The mountain range that runs through the centre is beautifully majestic and breathtakingly vast, at the middle of this range is Teide, the third largest volcanic peak in the world but don’t worry, it has not erupted for centuries and is thought to be extinct (dead) and this area has been recently declared as a National Park by the Spanish government.

The island is in an almost triangular shape and is 2,053km2 from one side to the other.

The coastline of Tenerife is lined with beautiful sandy beaches with either golden or black sand. There are huge wooded areas with varying plant life. Rocky formation and cliffs line the backdrop to the beaches and further inland bananas and tomatoes are grown, and they are two of this islands biggest export.

Santa Cruz De Tenerife is the capital city of the island with over 220,000 residents. It is a modern and well lit city resting on a slight slope leading to the South of the island.

Visitors to this region are always made to feel comfortable and welcome and the resort has a strong police force that keep the crime rates very low.

The streets are always busy and the inhabitants are polite and accepting of all cultures as Tenerife has such a wide diversity of native cultures anyway.
