Whichever way you define paradise, there are wonderful experiences catering to most tastes on this sun-kissed isle.
The most populated of the Canary Islands, not to mention the biggest, Tenerife is popular not only among holidaymakers from the Spanish mainland but also large populations of Brits and Germans.
While Tenerife has played a huge role in the development of the affordable package holiday, the island is also home to an assortment of high-end hotels, inland hiking opportunities and scenic coastal drives.
Ultimately, Tenerife is an appealing getaway in the summer, around Christmas and anytime in between given the consistently warm temperatures all year round.
Typical Tenerife Food. On the Canary Islands the most typical foods are: Bananas, Local Wine, Honey, Cheese, Mojo, Gofio, Potatoes, Papaya and other fruits, Almogrote, Bienmesabe, dishes with lots of herbs and spices, Barraquito (a coffee with liquor) Almond based desserts such as Principe Alberto and fish of course.
Typical food of the Canary Islands tends to be simple dishes of grilled meat and fishwith papas arrugadas and vegetable or salad accompaniments are not the most imaginative in the world. Although Tenerife takes some beating when it comes to choosing tapas.
Gofio has been a staple part of the Canarian diet for many years and is rather like flour made from toasted cereals. It was believed to be the main food of the Guanches, the native people of Tenerife and remains a popular dish to this day.
Playa El Camisón is a charming beach lined by green area and palm trees right on the border of Playa de las Américas and Los Cristianos. This is one of the best beaches in Tenerife for families; the beach is quite shallow and breakwaters keep bigger waves at bay.
Tenerife is famous for having some of the best beaches in Spain. As the largest island in the Canaries, there is a diverse range of beaches. From those beaches with golden sand to those with volcanic black sand, from busy beaches to more intimate locations, discover the best beaches for your holiday in one of Tenerife's villas.
Half an hour's walk is all that separates the chilled kitesurfer's resort of El Médano in Granadilla de Abono and one of the largest natural beaches on the island, Playa Tejita. Follow the resort's main beach, heading in the direction of Montaña Roja, Red Mountain, and you can't miss it. Tenerife has famous nudist beaches and at this beach, nudists favour the cove which you'll find underneath the mountain, but the rest of the beach is non-naturist. La Tejita is also a favourite among the LGBT community.
The Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Spanish: Carnaval de Santa Cruz de Tenerife) is held each February in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the capital of the largest island of the Canary Islands, Spain and attracts people from all over the world.
It is considered the second most popular and internationally known carnival, after the one held in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). Partially for this reason, the city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is twinned with the city of Rio de Janeiro.
In 1980, it was declared a Tourist Festival of International Interest by the Secretary of State for Tourism. The Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife aspires to become a World Heritage Site, as a declaration of its status as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO would promote the festival internationally. In 1987, singer Celia Cruz went to the Carnival Chicharrero with Billo's Caracas Boys; attended by 250,000 people, the concert was registered in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest gathering of people in an outdoor plaza to attend a concert. In 2019 for its part, more than 400,000 people danced to the rhythm of Juan Luis Guerra during the Carnival of the day thus surpassing the record reached in 1987 with Celia Cruz. Although, however, due to the unexpected mass response there was no notary officializing this figure for the Guinness Book.
The Tenerife water park Aqualand is located in the south of the island, in Costa Adeje (Arona) near Playa las Americas. You can now enjoy one of the world's best bird of prey shows.
Tenerife’s Siam Park, crowned as one of the best water attractions in the world, is sure to send your pulse racing with its 28m high ‘Tower of Power’ and its dark Volcano vortex-style slide. If you like a real challenge, set yourself a mission to conquer the Mekong Rapids and career through wild waters in fun family-sized rafts. You don’t have to be an adrenaline addict to enjoy the park as there are also tranquil gardens to explore and purpose-built sandy beaches.
