Attractions in Tenerife by Dan Williams
Winter sun breaks on the
island of Tenerife are enjoyed by many people, especially those seeking
an escape from the harsher winter weather of northern Europe. Faced with
at least 4 months of short days, cold temperatures and potentially wet
weather, the warm dry winter climate of the island of Tenerife is obviously
very attractive to northern Europeans and can be reached using one of the
many flights to the island provided by low cost airlines.
|Despite being part of Spain,
Tenerife and the other Canary Islands are in fact closer to Africa than
any part of Europe. The group of islands lie approximately 450 miles off
the coast of Morocco and owes its climate to this location. If visiting
the island here are few highlights that should make spending time on Tenerife
all the more enjoyable.
When ask you ask anyone about
which is the best beach on Tenerife you will get a number of different
answers. Because different people like different things the title of the
best beach is a debated one. If your preference is for a popular, easily
accessible, clean and well maintained sandy beach that satisfies the typical
sunbather's dream, then the stretch of sand on the beautiful Las Vistas
beach at Los Christianos will be your favourite. It can become busy during
peak periods but is there is plenty of capacity and it is flanked by two
other similar beaches, each in its own natural bay. A nice promenade along
the Paseo Las Vistas provides a pleasant way to pass an evening, especially
if there is a beautiful sunset.
Town, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain
If your preference is for
a remote, secluded beach and you don't mind the black volcanic sand that
makes up many of Tenerife's beaches then the beach at El Bullullo on the
north coast is both off the beaten track and beautiful, but can be hazardous
for bathers if winds are strong. On the east coast of the island the beach
at Playa de las Teresitas, although man-made is considered one of the most
beautiful. It is 1.5 kilometers long and is an ideal beach for families
as some shade is provided by palm trees. Remember that black sand is the
natural sand of the island and any golden beaches will have been made from
sand imported from the Sahara desert.
|Tenerife is also famous
for it's volcano, the third largest in
the world. Teide is fortunately an extinct volcano and is the highest mountain
in Spanish Territory, reaching a height of 3717 meters. Despite its altitude,
the mountain top is reachable by path for anyone used to some hill walking,
although walkers will require one of the free permits otherwise their visit
will be restricted to one of two viewpoints. For those unable to complete
the walk a cable car also takes visitors to the height of the viewpoints.
The area is a designated national park and there are some concerns about
erosion damaging the summit code. Anyone wishing to visit the peak is advised
to do so soon as it possible that the cable car will be closed down once
its current license runs out. The walk to the summit is likely to take
up to five hours and it is recommended that walkers set off before dawn
to avoid the midday heat and possibly experience a dramatic sunrise.
|To experience the opulence
of days gone by a visit to the town of La Orotava on the north-west coast
of the island is advised. Situated in the valley of La Orotava, whose slopes
are used to grow bananas, the town was where the noble and wealthy families
chose to settle following the Spanish conquest. The architecture still
boasts many fine examples of Renaissance mansions and beautiful churches.
Visitors will also find exclusive shops and restaurants. The town is also
famous for its wonderful gardens and for anyone visiting in early June
the Feast of Corpus Christi sees the streets covered in carpets of flowers
and the Town Hall providing the backdrop for an amazing flower tapestry.
Tenerife is also popular
as a winter training venue for top sportsmen and women, providing warm
winter weather and good facilities. Those facilities have recently been
enhanced by the opening in October 2008 of the T3 AthleticSphere, a venue
costing 15 million euros.
Swimming is the main focus
of the centre with both a 50m pool and a 25m warm up pool available for
use. The T3 also has the most advanced countercurrent swimming machine
in the world, a fine gym, 2 football pitches, 3 tennis courts and 3 squash
courts amongst its facilities. Accommodation is provided in luxury hotels
in the nearby village of La Caleta.
So you see, whether you want
beaches, spectacular mountain scenery, picturesque villages or state-of-the-art
sports training facilities, Tenerife has something for everyone.

El Teide Volcano Tenerife's Sleeping Giant! by Larry Austin
Belonging to the Canary Island
group, Tenerife is a unique volcanic island which is one of the largest
of its kind in the world. Home to the dormant Mount El Teide volcano, this
ancient island gives visitors a chance to explore the area's lunar like
landscapes and experience the stunning natural beauty that surrounds it.
The imposing Mount El Teide
which rises 3,718 metres above sea level is Spain's highest mountain and
it is little wonder that it is one of the most popular tourist attractions
in the region. Situated near the Montana Blanca and Pico Viejo areas, Mount
El Teide is set amidst the 18,900 hectare Teide National Park which boasts
of spectacular flora and fauna that call this part of Tenerife home.
Those finding accommodation
at Tenerife apartments and hotels in Puerto de la Cruz and Playa de las
Americas can catch the local TITSA bus service which connects these areas
to Teide. Visitors planning to ascend the volcano can do so by cable car,
by foot or by a combination of both.
|Taking the Teleferico Cable
Car is the easiest way to head up Mount El Teide and though the service
does not run all the way to the peak, the bird's eye view that awaits passengers
is truly awe inspiring. The eight minute ride stops off at the La Rambleta
area which is only around 200 metres from the summit and those who have
obtained permits can trek their way to the top.
Diehard adventurers wanting
to truly experience Mount El Teide and its natural volcanic setting can
alternatively plan to hike up to the summit by foot. Starting from Montana
Blanca, this mountain path is demanding as it is breathtaking and the six
hour climb is no walk in the park! Visitors planning to take on the challenge
should keep in mind that as the path reaches higher altitudes breathing
becomes less easy and those with heart conditions should be wary. As mentioned
before, it is worth remembering that one needs to get a permit (given free
of charge) from the Administration Office of the Teide National Park (in
Santa Cruz de Tenerife) in order to reach the peak.
Teide (Pico De Teide), Tenerife, Canary Islands
Outdoor enthusiasts and nature
lovers wanting to maximize their time exploring the wide variety of flora
and fauna at the surrounding Teide National Park should look to stay at
apartments and Hotels in Tenerife that are within easy reach of this naturally
Despite the rugged landscape
of Mount El Teide, one will find a surprisingly diverse array of plant
life that have adapted to the seemingly inhospitable conditions. Home to
Canary Island pine and cedar trees, the Teide National Park is also where
one can discover such plant varieties as the Teide Edelweiss, the Teide
Daisy, the Dwarf Bugloss and the Canary Island Wallflower. Some of these
species are endemic to the area and make the park a rich repository of
Tenerife's natural wealth.
Those interested in wildlife
will also have plenty to see and discover at the Teide National Park. This
is especially the case when it comes to insects since the park has become
a home to over 700 species! Among the many animal, insect and reptile species
one may come across when enjoying a trek include beetles, butterflies,
the Canary Island Lizard, rabbits, wasps, the Algerian hedgehog and honey
No matter where ones Tenerife
apartment or hotel is, making a trip to the Mount El Teide volcano and
its national park is well worth the time and effort. Those wanting to find
out more about what one can see and do in the area can refer "Discovering
Tenerife's Mount El Teide Volcano & National Park."
