Tenerife is home to a variety of landscapes and places of interest: volcanic black sand beaches, mountains, national parks, zoos, ancient pyramids and much more. Much of the island’s natural beauty, as well as some of its towns and cities, are even protected by UNESCO.
Try the mojo! Without a doubt, one of the must-haves of Canarian cuisine is “mojo” and every person, family, bar and restaurant has its own special mojo recipe. If you’re wondering how good these sauces are, let’s put it this way: they have entire songs dedicated to them. These sauces are originally green, orange or red, depending on the desired “hot factor” and the mix of spices and herbs and give a special flavor to meats, fish, potatoes and more….
Nicknamed “the island of eternal spring”, Tenerife is a place where you can and should be outdoors as much as possible. The island’s beaches, ranging from the black-sand volcanic coves of the north to the golden stretches of the south, are spectacular settings for sunbathing and water sports. Inland you will find countless natural wonders. Teide, a dormant volcano and Spain’s highest peak, is one such wonder. The Teide National Park encompasses huge volcanic craters, abundant wildflowers, trails and landscapes.
Believe it or not, Tenerife is actually the second most popular place in the whole world for whale watching… Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to see the giants of the earth at play! 25 of the world’s 78 species of marine mammals, including blue whales and dolphins, live off the coast of Tenerife, but the highlight is: the colony of more than 550 pilot whales!
Tenerife is just one of several islands that make up the Canary Islands – constant ferries and inter-island flights link all seven islands of the archipelago, meaning you can easily see and experience all that La Gomera, Gran Canaria, La Palma, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and El Hierro have to offer!
If you are looking for a special destination where nature and all its wildlife come together in harmony with the cheerful charisma of its people, Tenerife Island is undoubtedly the place for you.
