The landscape and countryside of the island is exotic, with beautiful flora and fauna areas as well as powerful mountains and volcanoes. Lying horizontal on the soft golden beaches, it would be impossible to realise how diverse Tenerife's scenery is.
Adventurous visitors can ascend to the summit of Tenerife's highest mountain peak, El Teide. However, underestimate the climb at your peril, with altitude sickness a possibility! Family water parks and adventure parks provide plentiful entertainment and excitement as the sun beats down.
