To help you plan your island getaway, we've chosen our top travel highlights for Tenerife.

Discover Mount Teide

Mount Teide is regarded as the world’s third-tallest volcanic structure and stands in a spectacular natural environment. Take the cable car to the top of the peak for some remarkable views of the surrounding landscape.

Experience the local cuisine

Relax on the picturesque beaches

The island is home to an impressive selection of both sand and shingle beaches along its 213 miles of coastline. One of the most unique beaches in the area of Puerto de la Cruz is Playa Jardin which also has a colourful botanic garden to go along with the natural palm trees and volcanic sand.

Explore Tenerife on foot

With over 200 miles of coastline and a rugged volcanic landscape just waiting to be explored, you can enjoy a casual coastal walk or a gruelling mountain hike…either way you’ll be bowled over by the natural landscape and stunning views on offer here.

Get Lost in La Laguna
