If you are curious about the history and culture of Tenerife, visit the cities of Santa Cruz, La Laguna or Garachico where you will find museums and architectural remains from the time of the conquerors of the Canary Islands.
Make Tenerife your next beach break
With Tenerife holiday homes in Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos you will find the most sizzling temperatures, exciting beaches, and a fun-filled nightlife. The beaches here have black or golden sand, crystal clear waters and blue flag awards for their cleanliness. During your stay in Tenerife villas you'll have plenty of fun surfing, jet skiing and snorkelling in the exquisite clear sea. Holiday rentals and Tenerife apartments in this area would provide an excellent selection on cabaret shows, restaurants, cocktail bars and clubs. This resort has a beautiful harbour and has still kept its charm of the small fishing village that it once was. You can go on fishing trips, glass bottom boats and cruises from the harbour to explore. Or if you want to keep the kids entertained, visit the aqua parks or even Tenerife Zoo during your stay in apartments in Tenerife.
Explore Tenerife's vast natural landscape
Tenerife holiday homes aren't just a great location for those in search of a beach holiday – this island also has a lot of offer in terms of natural wonders. Home to the highest mountain in Spain, Mount Teide, Teide National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and definitely worth visiting during your stay in a holiday rental property here. This natural landscape provides a stunning view of flowing lava, volcanic rock and beds of ash. You have two options as to how you want to take in and enjoy this beautiful view – you could take a cable car up to Mount Teide's summit, giving you amazing panoramic views of the entire landscape, or you could enjoy the view as you drive along Las Canadas, the single road that crosses the ten-mile wide crater that was formed millions of years ago. It's no wonder why this is the most visited national park in Europe.
Tenerife apartments – not just the sun and sand
If you're looking for a taste of culture during your stay in Tenerife villas, then head to Santa Cruz, the island's capital. The Iglesia de la Concepción is the main church in the city, dating as far back as the 16th century, whilst the Mercado de Nuestra Senora de Africa is a large food market worth going to if you'd like to sample the local cuisine. Or if you'd prefer a more historical setting for your villa, why not head north and visit the old town of La Laguna? This is the oldest city in the Canary Islands and holds World Heritage Site status for its colonial architecture and numerous religious buildings.
Art and culture on the island of Tenerife
The Tenerife Auditorium, designed by Santiago Calatrava, is located in the capital and has a varied agenda of theater, dance and concerts. In Santa Cruz and La Laguna are concentrated museums, theaters, exhibition halls and cinemas where you can quench your cultural thirst.
There are cities like Garachico with an interesting historical past to discover. The town of Garachico dates back to the end of the 15th century, as the first maritime gateway to the market with Europe, America and Africa, until a volcanic eruption in 1706 buried the old Garachico under lava.
Leisure offers in Tenerife
In the rural park of Anaga you can go hiking and visit places of great natural beauty such as the path of the senses located around the park's gate or the enchanted forest.
