Top reasons to go to Tenerife

Travelling to Tenerife

Home to Spain's highest mountain and the third tallest volcano on the planet, this island is a rich cornucopia of culture, tradition and history – whose charms are often missed by those who fly to Tenerife simply to seek the sun. Break free from the herd and enjoy a different holiday in Tenerife.

The best places to visit in Tenerife

Clustered around the north-east coastline at the foot of the Anaga mountains, the capital of Santa Cruz is a vibrant blend of art galleries, museums and colonial architecture sitting cheek by jowl with leafy plazas and pavement cafés. It's a great city to explore on foot – or you can hop on the tram that weaves along its tree-lined avenidas. Explore the Museum of Man and Nature to learn about the island's explosive birth and to see the mummified remains of its earliest inhabitants. Follow the city's sculpture trail that includes works by Henry Moore and Joan Miró; it’ll lead you straight to the botanical wonderland of Parque García Sanabria, the green lungs of the city. Don't miss the TEA art gallery (you can check out temporary exhibitions online) or the Mercado de Nuestra Señora de Africa market with its abundance of exotic produce, where you'll find an excellent food market in the basement.

Jump on the tram to the former capital of La Laguna – its compact old quarter is a Unesco World Heritage site, where beautifully preserved 16th, 17th and 18th century mansions line cobbled streets alongside atmospheric tapas bars and antiquated bookshops. Follow the landmark tower to reach the 16th century Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Concepción and climb the tower for grandstand views. The Mercado Municipal in Plaza Cristo is a great place to pick up some of the island's award winning goat's cheeses as a souvenir of your visit to Tenerife, and across the road, pop into the diminutive Santuario del Cristo to see the priceless 16th century gothic carving of Christ, the most revered icon on the island.

Clinging to the side of the lush valley that shares its name, La Orotava is Tenerife's most aristocratic town where you'll find the emblematic Casas de Los Balcones, traditional balconied houses. Inside Casa Mendez-Fonseca there's a magnificent balconied courtyard, and don't miss the quirky museum upstairs. Leave the crowds and head down Calle Colegio to Casa Fonseca for a nice little cafe in a delightful courtyard with views across the valley. Further down the street, the dome of the gothic Iglesia de la Concepción looks wonderful from inside, and notice the statue of the Alfombrista (carpet maker) outside. If your trip to Tenerife coincides with Corpus Christi (late May/early June), the town's displays of flower carpets are unmissable.

Wrap up warm for the literal highlight of your holiday in Tenerife with a trip to Teide National Park where a cable car takes you to within 200m of the summit of Mount Teide. Gazing down into the volcano's kaleidoscopic crater, on a clear day you can see the neighbouring islands of Gran Canaria, La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro glistening in the Atlantic.
