A patchwork of pine forests and white-sand coves, Tenerife lies between two worlds. Its laid-back atmosphere, pretty colonial architecture and heavenly climate have made it very popular indeed, but the island still knows how to surprise.

When to go

Tenerife is the idyllic place to spend a sunny winter break or a sizzling summer holiday, with dazzling weather year-round.

Food & Drink

The Canary Islands, of which Tenerife is the largest, is where Spanish, African and Latin American flavours combine. Spicy, tangy sauces (or ‘mojos’) are served alongside potatoes, pork and saltfish. You will also encounter a delicious range of tapas that utilise local seafood and pork products. To eat like a local, try Otelo with its legendary specialty of baked chicken. Los Roques offers a modern twist on Canarian cuisine, with an excellent degustation menu.

Not to miss

Work up a sweat as you hike up Spain’s loftiest mountain, Pico del Teide.

Nightlife

Like the rest of Spain and its possessions, nightlife kicks off late and continues well into the small hours. Blanco Bar is amongst the hippest nightspots on the island and is split over three levels with big dancefloors. For something more laid-back, Los Reunidos is a chic, quirky little bar in Santa Cruz that attracts the creative crowd.

Where to stay in Tenerife

Weather-beaten Garachico is a gorgeous coastal town with plenty of independent boutiques, luxury hotels and warm rock pools. Elsewhere, the island’s buzzing capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, plays host to dusk-to-dawn bars, sweeping white-sand beaches and intriguing museums.

How to get there

Tenerife North and Tenerife South serve both domestic and European flights.
