Tenerife is the largest (2034sq km) and highest (3718m) of the Canary Islands.
Mount Teide is Spain's highest mountain.
The South of Tenerife, particularly Playa de las Americas, is famous for its nightlife scene.
The South has both superb dark and golden beaches attracting many tourists, whilst the North of Tenerife is built around the thriving capital city of Santa Cruz.
Tenerife has an estimated population of 655,656.
Tenerife is an island with a real 'north-south' divide in more ways than one. Party animals head south for sizzling beaches and the hottest nightlife in the Canary Islands, whilst in the North of the island even the sun takes it easy!
The resorts of Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos have all but merged to form one big tourist destination. Puerto de la Cruz is lusher, quieter and cooler and popular with the older crowd.
Golf courses, yacht marinas, conference centres, theme parks, beaches... Tenerife offers a complete range of leisure activities to satisfy all kinds of tastes.
There are lots of beaches in Tenerife. The most popular are along the South coast: 'Los Cristianos' and 'Las Americas' with grey sand and surrounded by hotels and apartments. Going up along the east coast is 'El Medano', a long bay beach preferred by windsurfers because of its strong winds; and more to the north, the 'Teresitas' beach with white sand imported from The Sahara.
The Orotava Valley serves as an example of the north's fertility extending to the limits of 'Las Canadas' Park on the west shore of the Island. It's completely covered with banana plantations and orchards.
There are also many golf courses on the island such as Golf del Sur, Amarilla Golf and Country Club, Abama Golf Resort. Mt. Teide is Spain's highest peak and the most visited tourist attraction, you can take a cable car to the top of the dormant volcano. Tenerife has to offer. But there are many more.
So book your flight and join Bill Clinton, Robbie Williams and Jennifer Lopez in holidaying in Tenerife.
