The Canary Islands region
Two World Heritage Sites, one National Park, and 42 natural protected spaces are some of the treasures to be discovered in Tenerife. Whether you go alone, with your partner, in the company of friends or with the whole family, get ready to have a unique experience thanks to the wide range of activities that will make your stay in the island unforgettable.
Tenerife is the “Island of Eternal Spring”! Apart from having the best climate in Spain, Tenerife is a place where you can really relax and enjoy yourself. This island, crowned by Mount Teide, has picturesque villages, incredible landscapes and idyllic beaches. Here you will be able to enjoy fiestas where you will feel as though you are just one more reveller from Tenerife. Guess why over five million people have chosen this Island as their holiday destination.
PLACES OF INTEREST
Teide National Park.
A network of national parks in the Canary Islands attempts to conserve their most characteristic ecosystems. Hence, the Mt. Teide National Park, in the centre of the island of Tenerife, shelters the best examples of the supra-Mediterranean vegetation level. On the other hand, with an average altitude of over 2,000 metres, the Mt. Teide National Park offers one of the most spectacular examples of vulcanism in the world and represents the best example of alpine volcanic ecosystem in the Canary Islands
From a geo-morphological point of view, the structure of the caldera and the Teide-Pico Viejo strato-volcano are among the most spectacular geological monuments in the world, apart from the wide variety of volcanic cones and domes, lava flows, tors and caves that form a range of colours and forms that increase the scientific and scenic interest of the area. With regard to the enormous biological wealth of the area, the outstanding flora includes a large percentage of endemic species and the invertebrate fauna a large number of exclusive species. This National Park, created in 1954 in recognition of its volcanic and biological singularity, is the largest and the oldest of the National Parks of the Canary Islands, covering an area of 18,990 hectares, and the fifth largest of the thirteen National Parks in the network. Apart from its Peripheral Protection Zone, this natural area is surrounded by the Corona Forestal Nature Park, the largest protected natural area of the Canary Islands with 46,612.9 hectares. In 1989, it was awarded a class A European Diploma by the Council of Europe. This European Diploma was extended in 1994, 1999, 2004 and 2009 (this last time for ten years). The Teide National Park Board and the Joint Canary Island National Parks Commission held several meeting in 2002 to have the Mt. Teide National Park declared a World Heritage Site. As a result of this initiative the Teide National Park was included in the list of World Heritage sin summer 2007.
Acantilados de los Gigantes.
The Gigantes Cliffs offer some of the most spectacular scenery on Tenerife. Their impressive sheer faces drop from heights of 600 metres in some places. At the foot of these cliffs is the seabed at a depth of 30 metres: it contains a rich marine life that attracts both diving and sports fishing enthusiasts.
Anaga Rural Park
The Anaga Rural Park occupies much of the mountainous massif located at the north-eastern end of the Island of Tenerife. With an area of 14,419 hectares, it is a substantial part of the Island of Tenerife and includes parts of the municipal districts of La Laguna, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Tegueste.
This is a steeply-sloping area with exceptional natural and cultural treasures, which has landscapes of great harmony and beauty, the fruit of the coexistence of the human being and nature in a rugged territory.
It now constitutes one of the main leisure areas of the capital of Tenerife and it is also an enormous tourist attraction, which will help to preserve the popuation and local culture and to improve their living conditions.
Anaga has an interesting network of roads and footpaths which can take you, by car, on the bus or on foot, to places with superb panoramic views, natural spots of spectacular beauty or to get to know its numerous picturesque hamlets and to share the way of life of the people. The natural habitats of Anaga include some of the best Canary Islands ecosystems. The laurel forests, the juniper woodlands of Afur or landscapes of spurges from the eastern end of the Massif stand out due to their state of conservation.
Corona Forestal Natural Park.
The Corona Forestal Nature Park, a leafy forest of pine trees and other mountain plants, encircles the Teide National Park. It covers 50,000 hectares and is the largest protected area in the Canary Islands. It stretches across some extraordinary landscapes, mountains, ravines and valleys between the north and south of the island. It is the "green lung" of Tenerife and is easily accessible from any part of the island.
The Corona Forestal is the natural habitat of many endemic species, such as, the elegant Canarian Pine or outstanding species of birds such as, the Blue Chaffinch or Laurel Pigeon.
Although, in the past, the pine trees in the Corona Park were exploited by the timber industry, today, it is mainly an area reserved for recreational use for all types of outdoor activities. There are many restaurants that specialise in barbecued meat and many recreation areas that have barbecues and other services to help visitors enjoy this beautiful nature park of which the people of Tenerife are especially proud.
Rambla de Castro
The protected area of the Rambla de Castro, on the coast of the northern district of Los Realejos, is an area of beautiful scenery and one of the greenest and most fertile areas of the whole island. The Castro Farmhouse was first built at the beginning of the 16th century (although the current farmhouse dates from the 18th century) by Hernando de Castro.
This Portuguese merchant was given these lands in one of the first allocations made, and since then it has always been productive farming land. Today, banana plantations grow side by side with other plant species, such as, Canarian Palm Trees and Dragon trees, one of the most symbolic plants of Tenerife. The Chapel of San Pedro, built in the18th century, and the Fort of San Fernando, built at the end of the same century as a defence against pirate attacks, are the other two buildings worth mentioning in this area.
Teno Rural Park
The Teno Rural Park is one of the most beautiful areas on Tenerife. This park, traditionally isolated due to its limited and difficult access, with its mountainous massif in the north-west of Tenerife is of great ecological value, both scenic and cultural: it includes many examples of traditional island architecture. Large areas of laurisilva forest still survive here, a type of rich leafy forest vegetation, and are the home of many species of animals, such as, the Osprey. It is precisely its rich birdlife that has led to its being declared a protected area for birds.
From the Punta de Teno, the most westerly point of the island, which is marked by an old lighthouse, there are spectacular panoramic views of the Gigantes Cliffs, which drop straight down to the sea from a height of almost 600 metres. To get to the Punta de Teno you have to follow the coast road that leaves from the centre of the town of Buenavista del Norte.
BEACHES IN 25 KM
Mesa del Mar
La Arena is a charming beach in the district of Tacoronte in the small seaside village of Mesa del Mar. To get there take the road that runs between Tacoronte and Valle Guerra. Access to the beach is on foot through a short tunnel. The beach has calm, sheltered waters with some small waves. It is a good beach for families and gets quite busy, especially during the summer months. It has a full range of facilities and a pleasant seafront promenade. Blue flag.
For many people in Tenerife El Bollullo beach is one of the most beautiful on the island. It is also one of the most isolated and difficult to get to. Although a simple beach bar is the only facility visitors will find, it is impossible not to appreciate the beauty of its 400 metres of fine volcanic sand, the extraordinary clarity of its water, and the peaceful and cosmopolitan atmosphere created by those that go there.
At El Bollullo beach the currents and waves can be quite strong and dangerous, so it is wise to take care even when the sea looks calm. You also need to be careful with the sun as there are no sun umbrellas and not much shade available. The beach is located in the district of La Orotava, in the area called El Rincón, and is not easy to get to as there is no road. Access is by way of steps that make their way down between banana plantations, the walk down only takes a few minutes.
Before getting to the beach you to need leave your car in the pay and display car park of the El Bollullo restaurant. Take the exit for Puerto de la Cruz off the TF-5 motorway, you will need to take a different exit to the one that takes you to the tourist resort, and drive down to the coast via the area called El Rincón. At the restaurant San Diego take the turning on the left along a narrow road towards the beach. It is also possible to get there on foot from the tourist resort of Puerto de la Cruz, setting off from the Martiánez area or from the well-known "Urbanización La Paz." This will take between 45 minutes and an hour. Los Patos Beach is also nearby but you will need to take a different and more difficult route to get there.
In Puerto de la Cruz, next to the Martiánez Lido, the beach that bears the same name offers two different swimming areas. At one end, nearest to the lido, a breakwater prevents the ocean swell reaching the beach providing excellent swimming conditions most of the time. At the other end of the beach towards the cliffs, there is no barrier to stop the waves, and therefore it attracts surfers and body-boarders.
At the water's edge there is volcanic sand and pebbles. There are also some facilities at the beach and a huge range of services that an important tourist resort usually offers. However, it is important to take note of the sea conditions to avoid any potentially dangerous situations.
Las Teresitas beach is just seven kilometres from the centre of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and attracts both locals and visitors alike. The most popular and family-friendly beach in the area, it is one and half kilometres long with golden sand and dotted with palm trees. There is also a breakwater that protects swimmers from the currents and waves. It has showers, changing rooms and sun loungers available. The beach is currently being redesigned by the famous French architect Dominique Perrault.
The best option for visiting Las Teresitas beach is to combine a pleasant swim in the sea with a tasty meal in the nearby village of San Andrés. In this fishing village there are a great number of restaurants perfect for trying a tasty fish or shellfish meal prepared in the traditional Canarian way, accompanied by the typical "papas arrugadas" (wrinkled potatoes) and "mojo" (typical Canarian sauce).

"A lovely house"
This is a lovely house, built and maintained to a high standard, at the top of what in England we would call a smallholding with its own attractive garden and a good view of the sea. The situation is quiet and peaceful while the owners are very helpful and have good English. The big bed in the main bedroom is very good and comfortable but you should know that the second bedroom has just sofa beds. That certainly would not stop me recommending the house although it would be pushing it a bit to fit in six people!
