Take a selfie in Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the capital of Tenerife. It is on the north-east coast of the island. Santa Cruz's main beach is 'Las Teresitas' which is a fine golden beach filled with tonnes of white sand from the Sahara desert. With palm trees and a back-drop of the Anaga Mountains, it is the most beautiful beach on Tenerife.
Venture out to the volcanoes of Teide Park
Mount Teide is a volcano… within a volcano. Millions of years ago a volcano exploded and left behind a 16km-wide crater and on its northern edge a smaller volcano - Mount Teide. The whole area is now a weird volcanic landscape filled with lava rocks, lava streams and ash beds.
