Welcome to Tenerife
Famed for its southern resorts (and not always in a good way), the joy of Tenerife is that it offers so much more than just another sun-flop on the beach. For a true taste of Tenerife, consider dramatic volcanic scenery, colourful colonial towns, world-class museums, sophisticated dining and earthy local bars where you'll still need Spanish to order a beer.

Forget the tidal wave of costly and contrived theme parks and head to the sea instead: the water’s warm, the sun is (probably) shining and the watersports scene is awash with choice.

Foodie La Laguna
A Gourmet Markets
A Lively Bars
Markets are an important part of daily life in La Laguna, just as bars are an important part of post-dusk partying. Experience them both over a long day (and night) out.

A Fishy Trail
A Fresh-off-the-Boat Seafood
A Seaview Terraces
A former fishing village, Puerto de la Cruz still retains a strong seafaring tradition with superb fresh seafood and an atmospheric harbour.

Timeless Tascas & Crafts
A Traditional craftsmanship
A Tascas (tapas bars)
Admire La Orotava's colonial-style buildings and traditional crafts (and tascas ) untouched by time.

Backstreet Los Cristianos
A Local bars
A Independent shops
Los Cristianos' old fishing-village centre still has a pueblo atmosphere with its no-frills tapas bars and quirky independent shops.

Village Life in Garachico
A Tapas bars
A Local culture
In a village little changed by the passage of time, join the locals in the pretty main plaza before exploring the cobbled lanes and coastline, discovering convents, crafts and even a castle along the way.

Exploring the Anaga Mountains
A Isolated Hamlets
A Countryside Hikes
A world away from the clamour of the coast, this mountainous region still has hidden corners to explore, as well as tiny pueblos with a handful of inhabitants and breathtaking views.

Tenerife Day Planner

Short on time? We’ve arranged Tenerife’s must-sees into these day-by-day itineraries to make sure you see the very best of the island in the time you have available.

Day One
M Start your tour in the capital Santa Cruz with an early-morning breakfast at Cafetería La Terraza in the bustling and colourful Mercado de Nuestra Señora de África . Follow this by a browse at the stalls, then learn about life many yesterdays ago at the nearby Museo de la Naturaleza y el Hombre . Follow this with a stroll around the shops on Calle Castillo and the surrounding streets.
R Stop for a refreshing fresh fruit juice at Bar Zumería Doña Papaya , followed by lunch at Gom , known for its innovative Canarian cuisine. Continue to the lovely Parque García Sanabria and check out the sculptures and tropical plants. Then head back to the centre and hop on the tram to La Laguna for an afternoon of looking at the sumptuous colonial-style buildings and sights.
N When the time is right, swing by the gourmet market Mercado de San Pablo , where you can graze on tapas and enjoy a tipple or two to get you in the mood for the clubs and bars in the vibrant student barrio of El Cuadrilátero .

Day Two
M Wake up early and head south to Puerto de la Cruz. Check out harbourside Bar La Muelle to join the fishermen for a traditional tostada con aceite (toast and olive oil) with coffee and fishing-boat views. Explore the centre and enjoy a mid-morning coffee and cake break at Ebano Café overlooking the picturesque church. Next, take a dip at the Lago Martiánez (weather permitting), followed by a healthy light lunch at El Limón .
R Next stop is the crowning garden glory of Puerto, the Jardín Botánico . Carry on to the nearby beautiful colonial-style town of La Orotava and spend a couple of hours exploring the historic centre, including visits to the Museo de las Alfombras and the pretty Jardínes del Marquesado de la Quinta Roja .
N Drop by Casa de los Balcones for a spot of early-evening souvenir shopping before dining at Tascafe Grimaldi , set in the evocative 17th-century setting of the Casa Lercaro. Wind up your day by joining the locals for a nightcap at fashionable La Tasca de Bullicio with its creative cocktails and regular live music to keep you on your toes.

Day Three
M Start the day wandering the gracious streets of Garachico, on the island’s northwest coast, joining the locals at the Plaza Libertad for a coffee at the central kiosk and gleaning a little about the town’s history by visiting the Convento de San Francisco museum and the Castillo de San Miguel . Enjoy a lunch of tapas at Tasca de Vino before heading for the fabulous moonscape of El Teide in the centre of the island, via the scenic TF-82.
R Stick your head high above the clouds in this stunning national park. The fit and fearless can return for an all-day hiking assault on El Teide's summit; the fearless but not so fit can take it easy in the cable-car ride to just below the summit. Everyone can enjoy the easy walk around the Roques de García .
N Hit the road south heading for Los Cristianos . Head for the promenade here and a cocktail at the chilled-out Beach House followed by a seafood dinner at Rincón del Marinero . It’s been a busy day. Time for bed!

Day Four
M Head for the harbour in Los Cristianos and take a look at the kiosks advertising watersports and seafaring trips, including whale watching and deep-sea fishing. Make a decision for later in the day (or not), then have a hearty breakfast at Sopa . Head for the old town and a peruse of the shops. Ditch the Kindle and pop into Librería Barbara for a browse through the excellent range of multilingual books.
R Enjoy a classically Spanish menú del día at Restaurante Fortuna Nova then hop on a bus to Playa de las Américas for an amble down the main, shop-flanked Avenida Rafael
