The Canary Islands region
Tenerife, largest of the Canary Islands, is situated 200 miles off the west coast of North Africa. Triangular in shape, the island would fit into a rectangle about 90km wide by 80km high. Mount Teide, the extinct volcano which dominates the centre of the island stands at 12,200 feet, the highest point in Spain. Its peak can be seen from all of the other Canary Islands. The island is full of natural contrasts, the south being totally different, both visually and climatically, to the north.
There are vast areas of stunning natural scenery and a tour of Mount Teide quickly reveals why this particular area was chosen as the backdrop to scenes in famous films such as Star Wars, Planet of the Apes and the Ten Commandments. Volcanic cones are distributed randomly over the whole islands surface and contribute to the amazing landscape.
The climate in the Canary Islands is the reason that they are often called "the islands of eternal spring". Although situated only a short distance away from the hot, arid climate of the West African mainland, they experience pleasant temperatures all year long.
Celebrated in all the towns and cities of the island, with the biggest and most attractive carnival to be found in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Puerto de la Cruz. The celebrations in Santa Cruz are the most important and the biggest due to their ability to attract people from all the islands.
Playa de las Americas
Ideal for those who prefer a quieter residential location, yet excellent beaches and daytime activities within easy reach including bars, restaurants and shops. Enjoy boat rides or other water sports or just laze in the sun there's ample choice to spoil you.
Being duty free the main bargains to be sought on Tenerife are perfume, spirits and tobacco. There are also numerous local crafts to tempt the visitor including leather, linen tablecloths and jewellery. Cigars from the Canary Islands are also very popular and of excellent quality. A must for every tourist, whichever part of the world you travel, are the local markets.
Food and Drink
The Canary kitchen has without doubt been influenced by a wide variety of cultures and countries over the years. Sailors from Portugal, Spain, Britain, Germany and Holland frequently stopped at these islands whilst travelling and inevitably many, forced by circumstance, settled indefinitely on the islands. In general we can say that by taking a little something from each culture and adding it to the traditional Canary cuisine we have created there exquisite canary dishes we enjoy today.
As of June 2001, a grand total of twenty-five beaches and six marinas in the Canary Islands have been awarded the prestigious European blue flag, given to resort beaches in recognition of cleanliness, water quality and high standard facilities.
The superb all year climate makes Tenerife a favourite year-round venue for amateur and professional sporting types. There's a whole range of sports, from diving to sailing, fishing to windsurfing, available on the island.
Teide National Park
Declared a national park in 1954, the Parque Nacional de las Canadas del Teide includes an enormous volcanic crater 48 km in circumference, out of which rises Mount Teide (pronounced the same as Lady) at a staggering 3.718 metres, making it the highest mountain in the whole of Spain.This is the Canary Islands most visited tourist attraction and must not be missed.
SIAM PARK - ** NEW **
Walk through the magnificent gateway into a world of thrilling water rides, spectacular scenery, and the greatest adventure of your life! Take a break this year and dive into Europe’s greatest water kingdom! Siam Park Tenerife is as dynamic as it is thrilling, exotic as it is adventurous, set in lush surroundings and a complement to the ancient kingdom of Thailand.
This aquatic park situated not far from the apartment (5 minutes by car) is the focal point for sunseekers and water babes. The park boasts a Dolphin show, Dolphin lake, children's area and the most amazing assortment of water rides and slides, pools, sunbed areas and restaurants, shops and snack bars.
Regardless of your age you will be fascinated by the Loro Parque. Originally a Parrot Park, it has now grown into Tenerife's second biggest attraction after mount Teide.
