Arriving in Tenerife
While famous for its resplendent southern coastline, Tenerife is home to many other wonders that will captivate the minds and hearts of the adventurous. Along the island’s northern sweep lie verdant pine forests, incredible volcanic rock formations and secluded coves, sprinkled with authentic local villages unmarked by the flurry of international tourism that has flooded the south sands.
First Time in Tenerife
Many astounding attractions await visitors able to tear themselves away from the island’s heavenly beaches. Travel to Tenerife’s village of Garachico, a beautiful and unassuming local town adjoining a collection of naturally formed rock pools filled with temperate clear waters and a variety of tropical fish.
If you enjoy music, book tickets to Tenerife’s Orquesta Sinfónica, one of the finest symphonic orchestras in Spain. Shoppers will love Santa Cruz, replete with a wide variety of vibrant local and international fashions.
Making the Most of Your Tenerife Holiday
Check the island’s tourism website before booking your flights to Tenerife. Certain local festivities, such as the electric Carnival, will make cheap hotels in Tenerife much harder to find. Compensate for this by scheduling your travel arrangements well in advance, which will also help you find the best possible flight deals to Tenerife. Expect quality service and care when you fly to Tenerife with airberlin.
