Every morning from our breakfast table at the hotel we had a magnificent view of the Pico del Teide.
Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands. It is 83.3 km long and up to 53.9 km wide. There live about 906000 inhabitants. The capital of the island is Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Here you can experience much more than a pure beach holiday.
Santa Cruz de Tenerife was only one of many places along the road from the southern part of the island back to the north for us. Until we decided to stop off and inhale some city aroma.
La Orotava is located in the Orotava valley in the North of the island of Tenerife. On a rainy day, we took our hire car to Orotava.
One of the most beautiful gardens of Tenerife, the Parque Taoro, is located in Puerto de la Cruz. Take the time to stroll through the garden.
That is the big question. The Faro de Teno Lighthouse lets some visitors feel the sting of remorse. That is because actually, driving through to the lighthouse is not permitted.
Especially on very hot days, a trip to the Jardín Botánico de la Orotava is highly recommended. In the shadow under the trees, visitors can find some clam in the city.
