What are the best things to do in Tenerife? Without a doubt, Tenerife's most famous place is the Teide National Park, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2007. The Teide National Park is the place where the Teide Volcano (el Teide or known as Cheide Mountain among locals) is centred. The Volcano is 3,718 m. above sea level and considered to be the highest peak in Spain. To reach the top one can take a cable car up to the central station, located at a height of more than 3,500 m. Also, the so-called Roques de García - strange geological formations shaped by wind erosion - are worth special attention.
Another impressive place is the millennial Dragon Tree Park (Parque del Drago) – which is the main tourist attraction of Icod de los Vinos, located in Tenerife North. This is the place where one of the most important natural icons of Tenerife, the celebrated el Drago - a majestic tree which is more than 800 years old - stands.
And you mustn’t overlook the capital of the island - Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where you will find places of interest such as the Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, the main Catholic church of the city, for example. Five ships, located in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, exhibit the colours, captured by Admiral Nelson during his attack on the island’s capital, which occurred in 1797, as well as the Cross of Alonso Fernandez de Lugo, which gave the city its name. In addition, if your trip to Tenerife takes place in summer, you are more than welcome to have a swim in the Atlantic Ocean at some of the beaches of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. You can choose from many among Llanos, Tabaiba, Las Gaviotas or Las Teresitas for example. Staying at one of our hotels in Tenerife, you have no excuse for skipping some amazing relaxation time at any of the mentioned beaches.
Just 9 km to the west from the IBEROSTAR hotel in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in the valley of Aguere, stands San Cristóbal de La Laguna. Founded in 1496 in a desiccated lagoon, it was the first non-fortified Spanish colony, and is currently the main university city of Tenerife. UNESCO declared the city’s historical centre a World Heritage Site in 1999. The main attraction of San Cristóbal de La Laguna is the Cathedral of Our Lady of Remedies which was built in the 16th century in the neoclassical style.
Traveling 36 km southwest from the Santa Cruz de Tenerife hotel IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel Mencey, you will find a fishing village with four-centuries of history - Puerto de la Cruz, which lies in the beautiful La Orotava valley. A good starting point for enjoying the place is the famous black sand beach Tenerife is famous for - Martiánez. Lago Martiánez, a complex of swimming pools designed by an artist from Lanzarote - César Manrique, is another reason for you to take this trip and of course, you should not pass by the Playa Jardín – one more work of Manrique. You should also definitely visit the Archaeological Museum, which opened in Canary house in the 19th century, and above all, the Jardin Botanico, Loro Parque and the two flagships.
If, for your next holiday in Tenerife you choose one of our six hotels in Adeje, South Tenerife, within arm’s reach you will have the best Tenerife beaches, such as Las Américas beach, El Camisón, Los Cristianos, Costa del Silencio and Las Galletas, as well as the picturesque municipality of San Miguel de Abona.
Finally, it is highly recommended to visit Candelaria, located 26 km from Santa Cruz de Tenerife. This important marine and tourist village is the spiritual centre of the island, as it is a place of veneration of the image of the patron saint of the Canary Islands.
Tenerife cuisine includes a lot of recipes of solid and very nourishing food.
We should definitely highlight typical Tenerife food such as stews - ribs with chickpeas or meat with potatoes (potatoes are very popular all over the island). However, unlike cuisine from mainland Spain, Tenerife traditional food includes other ingredients, such as vegetables, chickpeas, sweet potato, corn, pineapples, pears or chayote.
On the other hand, Tenerife’s 342 km of coastline, explains the popularity of fish in Canarian recipes. In fact, specialties such as baked horse-mackerel or horse-mackerel in tomato sauce, weakfish cannelloni or tollos compuestos (brined and sundried shark, dogfish or stingray) are always easy to find in Tenerife restaurants as is the cazuela de pescado - a stewed seafood dish traditionally accompanied by gofio escaldado (corn flour mixed with broth). Meat is less common; usually pork, rabbit, goat, and certain types of poultry are used in recipes for Tenerife food. One of the common meat dishes, for example, is baifo - baby goat baked in the oven, and one must not forget to try one of the area’s most famous dressings - mojo picón. In addition, of course, Tenerife’s best restaurants serve traditional Spanish food, such as traditional Spanish breakfast dishes, Spanish paella and Spanish tapas, accompanied by the best wines. Professional sommeliers will always help you to choose a nice red wine or good white wine that perfectly accompanies your meal. Tacoronte-Acentejo wines are especially recommended local wines.
When it comes to Tenerife desserts, one must mention that the island has an important confectionery tradition. Among the specialties are egg flip, chasneras pastries which are much appreciated in South Tenerife, and the artisan turon de Tacoronte.
