We at ROCK ROUTES HOLIDAYS have prepared this full guide to the best beaches found on the beautiful island of Tenerife.
Blessed with a fantastic year round warm and sunny climate, Tenerife is an unquestionable little beach paradise and is considered the Canary Island of Superlatives. Tenerife is the largest and highest of the seven Islands in the Atlantic, the more than 35 immaculate clean beaches offer you a big potpourri of variety and textures. The vulcano Teide is the highest mountain in Spain with 3718 meters.
