Top Natural Attractions  
  1. Volcan El Teide

    Getting to the small village at top of the mountain is achievable either by road or cable car and is most certainly worth the endeavour. Once at the top you can then walk the final 660ft to the very peak for mesmerizing view.

  2. Masca Valley

    Driving to the heart of this valley smack in the middle of Tenerife is not for faint hearted. Once you get there you can discover a landscape from another world with rocky hills and narrow corridors almost looking like a scene from a Mars landscape.

  3. Playa  de las Teresitas

    The preeminent beach in the capital of the island. Tenerife is known for its dazzling beaches and Playa de las Teresitas is comfortably the best example of any. Here you can revel in the almost infinite supply of sun, sand and calm sea.

Top Driving Tips
  1. Driving on any one of the Canary Islands is typically an uncomplicated experience. Due to such a large popularity among tourists, the roads are kept in good conditions with major roads taking you to the lion’s share of the favourable attractions and beaches. The rules of driving are the same of those in Spain as you will drive on the right and follow standard European laws.

At the Airport
  1. For such a small island, the Tenerife South Airport is incredibly busy. Located on the largest of the Canary Islands and controlled by Spain, the Tenerife South Airport saw almost 8 million people pass through this busy airport in the past year, with nearly a million of those being accounted for in the month of July. The airport has an excellent selection of shopping options, from souvenirs to jewellery and more. Local crafts are highlighted in shops as well from locally made clothes to locally inspired jewellery items as well. Food options are excellent as well, with quick options and sit down meals both available. The restaurants in the Tenerife South Airport focus on the local fare of the Canary Islands which is a fusion of African and Spanish influences.

Airport Location  
  1. The Tenerife South Airport is conveniently located at the south of the main of the Canary Islands. With the island being so small you can comfortably reach any point of the island is less than two hours with the San Cristobal de La Laguna, on the other side of the island only 45 minutes away.

Car Hire at the Airport
  1. Tenerife is both the largest and busiest of all the Canary Islands and as you would expect has the most car hire option available. With the airport being the opposite side of the island from Santa Cruz city with many of the villas and resorts away from airport as well, car hire is almost a requirement for easy travelling. Affordable car hire has five suppliers at Tenerife south airport with Goldcar, Alamo and Avia Car all with a desk in terminal plus the addition of Budget and Europe both found in the airport car park. Orlando car hire is an alternative option but would require you to take the free shuttle bus after leaving the airport.
