Situated north of the Tropic of Cancer, about 186 miles from the African coast, Tenerife is known as the "Island of Eternal Spring" for its year round splendid weather. Home to El Teide, a World Heritage Site, which is the highest point above sea level in Spain and the third largest volcano in the world, the island boasts spectacular sights, magnificent beaches such as Playa de la Arena, cultural attractions and a teaming nightlife.
The cheapest way to get from any of the two main airports to your hotel, or to one of the surrounding popular tourist resorts such as El Medano, Duia de Isora, Playa Paraiso or Puerto de la Cruz, is by bus, although other transport options are available, such as taxis and car hire services. Tenerife buses are clean, cheap, and comfortable and will allow you to explore the entire island at a very low cost if you purchase a Bonovia Card. Whether you prefer to unwind at the beach, enjoy the clear warm waters, do water sports or see the sights, the island offers many attractions to suit your every need. Some of the main sites worth visiting include the modern "Auditorio de Tenerife" and the distinctive African Market in Santa Cruz as well as Teide's Natural Park.
