Tenerife is the largest of the seven islands that make up the Canary Island archipelago. It's strangely triangular shape, with the gigantic Teide volcano rising up in the centre to 3,718 metres, making it the highest point in all of Spain and the third highest volcano in the world.

Its 269 kilometres of coast offer a wide variety of places to enjoy the sun and the sea. In the north, where the countryside is steep with cliffs, you will find small bays of dark volcanic sand and natural pools, whereas in the south, such as in Playa de Las Américas, Los Cristianos or Costa Adeje, you will find numerous beaches. You can swim and sunbathe all the year round thanks to the abundance of sunny days, or sail its waters to watch dolphins and whales.

However, there is much more to discover on the island. You can wander around the colonial city of San Cristobal de La Laguna, declared a World Cultural and Heritage Site by UNESCO, or visit small charming towns such as La Orotava, Buenavista del Norte, El Sauzal, Garachico or Icod de los vinos, where you can enjoy the excellent local cuisine and wines. And don't forget to visit the capital Santa Cruz.

The island offers many options for practicing sports. Diving in the waters around the island is a spectacular experience as the volcanoes have given Tenerife an original sea floor. Mountain biking, golf, hiking, surfing, kitesurfing or paragliding are just a few of the sports you can practice here.
