The southern half of Tenerife is known for its moon like landscape and unique beaches of volcanic sand that make it so different to the majority of holiday destinations. The north is somewhat more fertile with banana plantations and a host of other interesting forna and flora along with a more rugged coastline to explore.
The main holiday resorts on Tenerife are listed below but there are a host of smaller more intimate resorts for those looking to get away from the crowds.
A must do for any holiday maker to Tenerife is a visit up to the top of Mount Teide which is some 3718 meters and the highest point in Spain. The trip to the summit is quite spectacular as you ascend through mountain villages and serene pine forests and sometimes even through a layer of cloud, it is really quite breathtaking. Once at the top you can grab a bit to eat and enjoy the peace and quiet of the volcanic National park or take the cable car up to the usually snow covered peak.
There are excursions to Mount Teide available from most resorts, I would however recommend hiring a car and driving yourself. It is an easy drive and the roads are modern and safe and under your own steam you can stop and enjoy the wondrous scenery for as long as you want!
There are plenty of other attractions and major towns to visit and or shop and the local transportation system is designed with the tourists in mind. Car hire is available from the airport or most major resorts or alternatively taxis are available for shorter journeys pretty much round the clock.
Tenerife is a great destination for food too with a wide variety of cuisine on offer including local Canarian dishes that will get your taste buds tingling along with being a duty free island making drink and shopping a bargain too!
