Tenerife: A place like no other – Visit the Exciting Tenerife
Tenerife is the largest and most populous of the seven Canary Islands and has been welcoming holiday makers for decades. It is an island of rich contrasts and unique beauty; one of the few places in which you can ski in the morning and sunbathe on the beach the very same afternoon.
Due to its volcanic formation, the island hosts a wealth of natural attractions including mountains, cliffs, craters, lava formations, black and white-sand beaches, creeks and natural swimming pools.
A tailor made or an all-inclusive holiday in Tenerife has something for everyone, whether it’s the lush, green and humid north or the dry and sunny south, Tenerife is a place like no other.
The northern city of Puerto de la Cruz is the second largest city and the longest standing tourist estate on the island, offering accommodation to hundreds of thousands of tourists each year. It is the perfect marriage between the traditional and the modern, uniting the original port with elegant plazas, uptown markets and casinos, not to mention The Lago Martianez, one of the finest swimming pool complexes in the world; a spectacular man-made beach with seven pools and a 15,000 square metre artificial lake.
The capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, is located in the northeast of the island, and if you really want to experience Tenerife, this vibrant and bustling port city, set at the foot of the breath taking Anaga Mountains, has everything. It offers a wealth of fine dining and nightlife, culture and commerce.
