Beaches: Tenerife is all about the beaches, the parties and enjoying "la dolce vida." With 500+ beaches to choose from around the island, you won't be short of choices. The southern coast of the island is where you'll find the densest concentration of resorts.

El Teide: Mount Telde is the mountain in the middle of the island, worth hiking up if you have a free day. It is the highest mountain in Spain! Watch out though, altitude sickness can strike anyone.
