Things to Do, See and Enjoy on Tenerife
Santa Cruz de Tenerife: In the Island´s capital there are great shopping facilities. It is also home to a fabulous square: Plaza de España – a great place to sit and relax for a siesta.
Teide: The main attraction for Tourists on Tenerife is the Volcano in the centre of the Island. You can also take a cable car up to the top to save you hiking for 6 hours. Take a look at their website for more information: www.telefericoteide.com/teleferico/teleferico-del-teide
To go right the way to the top, a summit pass is needed. These can be obtained online or from Santa Cruz de Tenerife, however the buses will take you up as far as they can.
Beach days: The majority of the beaches are in the south of Tenerife, namely Los Cristianos, Las Americas and Costa Adeje. Although a short bus ride away is Playa de Las Teresitas, a great beach sheltered from the harsh Atlantic waves. A wonderful place to gather thoughts and sunbathe in your free time.
Markets: These occur all year round, they sell locally produced and handmade gift items. One of the more common being table cloths and linen coverings, each made individually.
Travelling on the Island: There is a bus service which covers the whole Island. No place is more than 2 hours away, make sure you get a Bono Card, this will save you almost 1/3 on all fares.
