Tenerife, Canary Islands
The most varied and one of the most attractive of the Canary island group, Tenerife offers a truly incredible variety of landscape, vegetation and climate, owing to the high mountainous crest which clearly divides the island in two. Giving, on one hand, a lush, fertile and humid North Coast and a dry, desert like, arid Southern Coast on the other.
Tenerife offers a complete range of leisure activities to satisfy all kinds of tastes. Golf courses, yacht marinas, conference centres, theme parks and beaches. Its capital and main port is Santa Cruz, a very friendly town with beautiful parks and lively streets.
