The spectacular Spanish island of Tenerife lies just off the coast of North Africa, with warm weather throughout the year, long beaches of black volcanic sand and one of the world’s biggest carnivals. It’s also home to the awe-inspiring natural landmark of El Teide, a world heritage site and the third largest volcano in the world.
Tenerife’s exotic zoos, festivals, water sports and stunning landscapes are perfect for budding photographers, hikers and sightseers alike, and Loro Parque in Puerto de la Cruz is great for youngsters and nature-lovers. With 4,000 parrots, an aquarium and a penguinarium, it’s one of the largest zoos in the world! Tenerife’s nightlife is as vibrant and diverse as the island’s flora and fauna, and the accommodation is top-notch – the development of new hotels is forbidden unless they’re awarded the prestigious 5-star quality.
