Tenerife's diverse landscapes (which include both mountains and black-sand beaches) and its surprisingly upscale dining scene, which makes use of ingredients flavored by the island's volcanic soil and constant beating sun are a few of its unique features. Visitors to Tenerife often focus only on the island's beaches, but the island's Teide National Park is worth exploring for anyone interested in the outdoors. You'll have a hard time picking between the 21 different marine mammal species that live in the waters just off the coast, such as bottle-nosed dolphins, sperm whales, and orcas.

Due to its subtropical climate, Tenerife is a great place to go for a winter sun vacation because it is warm and sunny there all year round.

You will feast like a king or queen on a wide variety of dishes that combine traditional Spanish and Catalan fare with touches of African, French, and Arabic flavors. Papas arrugadas, or 'wrinkled potatoes,' are a popular dish in the area. They are boiled potatoes topped with a spicy green pepper sauce.


Although Tenerife isn't quite as wild as some of its fellow Spanish islands, it's still a fantastic place to let loose. Veronica's Strip in Playa de las Americas is an excellent jumping off point and final destination.
