The Tenerife Area Guide

Things to do

With its rugged, volcanic landscape, jagged mountains, beautiful beaches and bizarre collection of wildlife, first time visitors to the island of Tenerife would be forgiven for thinking that they had set foot on another planet when getting off their plane. This dramatic and vibrant landscape, coupled with the warm and welcoming nature of Tenerife locals makes the largest of the Canary Islands a great place to relocate to if you are seeking a bit of an adventure. And as the largest of the Canary Islands, it should come as no surprise that Tenerife is also the most populous. There are currently slightly less than 900,000 people living on the island permanently – although thanks to its immense popularity as a tourist destination, it can often feel like a lot more!

When it comes to things to do, Tenerife’s array of natural wonders means that there is no shortage of sightseeing opportunities to embark on. The Teide National Park and Masca Walk attract scores of explorers all year round and you would be remiss to pass up any opportunity to experience either of them.

In addition to its jaw-dropping natural beauty, Tenerife also boasts a number of world-class man-made attractions as well. Residents and visitors alike flock to Siam Park in the summer. This water park in Costa Adeje claims to be the most spectacular of its kind in Europe and was awarded the title of ‘World’s Best Waterpark’ in the 2015 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice awards.

Places to eat

Lovers of seafood will feel right at home on Tenerife, as fish is a staple of Canarian cuisine. The island’s location means there are many different types of fish available for purchase in the markets, supermarkets and restaurants of Tenerife – some of them more bizarre than others! Accompanying most meals, you will most likely find something called Mojo. This classic Canarian sauce comes in a number of colours, flavours and textures, and certainly doesn’t have anything to do with Austin Powers...

As a result of Tenerife’s popularity as a tourist location, those looking to relocate will find an abundance of restaurants serving up their own interpretations of Canarian Cuisine, as well as a wide range of other international foods. For those not looking to break the bank by eating out night after night, there are also dozens of supermarkets such as Carrefour and Alampo on the island for quickly stocking up on those essential household items.

Shopping

Those looking to indulge in a spot of retail therapy will find a number of malls on Tenerife that are ready to cater to their needs. The CC Meridiano in Santa Cruz de Tenerife is one of the more popular shopping destinations on the island and is home to a number of fashion outlet stores including Levis and Pepe Jeans. There is even a Primark! Those craving a taste of nightlife will find the Safari Centre in the resort town of Playa de las Americas serves up a great selection of bars, restaurants and clubs.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that shopping in Tenerife is limited to mega-malls, however. Those seeking a more authentic shopping experience will be able to find a number of traditional markets all over the island that sell all manner of treasures and trinkets. The Playa San Juan market is one such example and here you will find bargains on everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to handmade jewellery.

Getting there & around

As you would expect, Tenerife is easiest to reach by air. There are two main airports serving Tenerife – Reina Sofia Airport in the south and Los Rodeos Airport in the north. Both airports provide flights to the capitals of the other Canary Islands, as well as various locations throughout Europe.

A wide range of bus services makes it easy for locals and visitors to travel not only within cities but also to other towns throughout the island. Taxis are also readily available and provide travellers with a relatively inexpensive means of getting from the airport to their accommodation. The Tenerife Tram also helps to connect Santa Cruz de Tenerife with La Laguna and passes through the suburb of Taco en route.
