Most people come to Tenerife for the sunbathing, swimming, eating good food and spoiling themselves. However, what makes people come back, year after year, is the island’s unique wealth of variety. Tenerife is much more than its beaches, here you can find riotous traditional festivals and liberating isolation, glistening snow and glowing lava. For the visitor there is something new to discover every day.
