Tenerife is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the World.
Its year round warm temperature and spectacular volcanic scenery as well
as beaches, water sports and night-life ensure its constant popularity.
Tenerife is dominated by the large, dormant volcano of Mount Teide and the
island rises steeply from all directions up to the snowy tip of Mount Teide.
Surrounding the peak is the amazing volcanic landscape that is now protected in
the Parque Nacional del Teide.
To the north of Tenerife the landscape is prettier with its more humid climate
and lush vegetation. Puerto de la Cruz, La Orotava, and Garachico are excellent
holiday destinations on the north of Tenerife. Also visit Tenerife's most
beautiful village Masca.
The south of Tenerife is hotter and tends to get more of the visitors to the
island. Los Cristianos is one of the main resorts as are Costa del Silencio and
Las Galletas. For those in search of night clubs and a party atmosphere the
Playa de las Americas and neighbouring Los Cristianos are the places to head
for. There is also a wide range of attractions including Siam Park voted best
water park in the world.
