The beautiful scenery throughout the Canary Islands and their Atlantic culture contribute to the pleasures derived from the island climate and the sea without having to give up nature excursions or cultural visits. This is especially true on the island of Tenerife, where the marked contrasts and dramatic beauty of its scenery, as well as the rich traditions, can be indulged in at the two large, renowned tourist centers: one in the fertile north, the other in the sunny south.
Puerto de la Cruz is the oldest tourist center in the Canaries. Since the 19th century, it exists as a famous place of rest and relaxation due to its mild climate and lovely surroundings. It is located by the sea at the foot of the fertile Orotava valley on the northern coast of the island. The harbor is an enclave that blends with the tropical valley, and its streets, filled with trees and flowers, are ideal for strolling. Particularly lovely are the Paseo Marítimo promenade and Lake Martiánez, a dramatic area of natural pools created by the great artist from Lanzarote, César Manrique. In the outskirts of the city, there are lovely spots that should not be missed, including the prestigious Botanical Gardens, and the aviary, Loro Park. A large number of excursions to all kinds of places of interest are possible from here by foot and by car, only a short distance from the city.
Another way to enjoy the sun and sea is at the tourist resorts of the south, where it is more arid and with a better climate. Playa de las Américas-Los Cristianos certainly stands out with its wide variety of lodgings, restaurants, bars, night spots, and other amenities for the comfort of the tourist. All along the southern coast, there are other smaller resorts, including El Médano for windsurfing, Costa del Silencio and Los Gantes; each one with a personality of its own.
The southern part of the island is perfect for relaxing on the beach, swimming in the sea, and practicing water sports, especially windsurfing.
Farmlands Under the Volcano
Of all the attractions in the Canary Islands, the imposing Pico de Teide volcano, the highest mountain in all of Spain, is undeniably one of the most well-known. It rises 3,718 meters (12,195 ft.) above sea level from a large volcanic depression located at an altitude of 2,000 meters (6,560 ft.) in the central part of the island of Tenerife. This assembly of strange forms and colors of solidified lava, exclusive flora, and the geological singularity make Teide National Park the most visited one in Spain.
The amiable and garrulous nature of the people in Tenerife relish the celebrations and festivals. Many traditional festivals have been preserved on the island, including the famous Carnavales. There are few islanders who do not prepare their Carnival costumes months in advance or who don't form part of a group of minstrels.
