The island 

Tenerife is located in the Atlantic Ocean - approximately 248 miles from the African northwest coast - and is the largest island of the seven Canary Islands. The island is known for its varied landscapes, vibrant culture and sub-tropical climate.  

The island is crowned by the mighty Mount Teide (12188 ft ).This dormant volcano is also the highest mountain in Spain! The national park surrounding Teide offers beautiful hiking trails, lunar landscapes and the breath-taking phenomenon of Mar de Nubes . At this altitude in the mountains, you are often above the clouds, making it seem as if you are floating on a sea of ​​clouds .

Fun things to do

Discover the lesser-known side of the island: take a beautiful walk along volcanoes, picnic in a prehistoric laurel forest or taste fresh goat cheese in a cozy mountain village. And how about paddling along the coast in a kayak and spotting dolphins and sea turtles along the way?

Overnight stays 

Unique overnight stays are also featured in this web. Package holidays and all-inclusive hotels are a bit passé. It is becoming increasingly easier to book flights and accommodation yourself, so that you can give an individual interpretation to your dream holiday.

Websites such as Booking.com offer amazing -yet affordable - holiday homes. Some even with their own swimming pool or sun terrace. Now that's vacation! No stress about reserving sunbeds at the hotel pool. And instead of standing in line at the all-inclusive buffet, you can grab a relaxing bite at a local Guachinche.

My goal

In the hectic everyday life we ​​lead, a holiday should be a relaxing counterweight. Go and discover the beautiful nature of the island while hiking. Take a dive in a secluded cove. And in the afternoon, relax on the terrace of your holiday home and enjoy the afterglow of a beautiful day.

That is the purpose of this website. Offering nice alternative options to enjoy the island. I bet you will fall in love with Tenerife in no time!
