Beach Tenerife

Tenerife, a Spanish island, 2058 sq km, is the largest of the seven Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa. The island's population is 900,000.

The highest point of Spain, Teide (3 717 m), is on this island. The island itself is clearly divided into a very dry southern part and a very humid and green north.

map Tenerife Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the second biggest city in the archipelago, the capital of the island and the head of the island government. The island is home to La Laguna University founded in 1792.

Tourism is the most prominent industry in the Canaries and it is one of the major tourist destinations in the World. Tourism is more prevalent in the south of the island, which is hotter and drier and has many well developed resorts such as Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos. In the more lush and green north of the island the main development for tourism has been in the town of Puerto de la Cruz. The town itself has kept some of its old-harbour town charm mixed with northern European influences. Still, the tourist boom in the 60's changed the outlook of the town, making it cosy and cosmopolitan at the same time, and a favourite for the more mature traveller
