It’s all too easy to lump Tenerife – the largest of Spain’s seven Canary Islands – in with all the other classic package holiday destinations. But there’s much more to this isle than all-inclusive hotels, theme parks and Irish bars. Tenerife is full of fascinating and quirky stuff to see and do – much of which you can’t do anywhere else.
From delicious wine and tapas that rival anything you'll find on the Spanish mainland to stunning botanical gardens, phenomenal hiking trails and mesmerising art, Tenerife has something for every discerning traveller. And you can drive across the entire thing in well under three-and-a-half hours!
Not only is there loads of things to see on Tenerife and not only is it all very, very accessible, but it’s also on an island just off the coast of Africa – meaning that it’s usually warm and sunny year-round. Here’s where to to get started!
