(Spain) .- An island where the earth comes from the fire and against which the ocean collides day after day. This is Tenerife, a destination full of contrasts in which to spend a vacation can be synonymous with surfing, hiking, sleeping under the stars, see nature impossible to find anywhere else on the planet, fool your taste buds with new flavors and your perception of space-time thinking that you have traveled thousands of years ago …
Perhaps you do not need them, and surely we have left many, but to begin with, on behalf of Edreams here we leave you 10 reasons to travel to Tenerife.
1. Climb the Teide
Which is not only the highest peak in Spain, but at nightfall offers landscapes as amazing as these recorded by the Norwegian photographer Mr. TSO.
2. Shelter in the San Andrés bunker
Tucked between the mountains of the same name, this military space was built in World War II. Today, there are still 4 rooms and 3 machine-gun nests, from whose grooves there is a privileged view of the Teresitas Beach.
3. Enter the Cave of the Wind
One of the ten largest volcanic tubes in the world with 20 kilometers in length.
4. Find all the landscapes that made, in 2012
The journalist Tom Dyckhoff (The Guardian) pointed to Santa Cruz de Tenerife as one of the five best places in the world to live.
5. Get tangled up in the laurel forest of Anaga Rural Park
Aunique forest in Europe, where plants grow that can only be found in this little green piece of Tenerife and in some fairy tales.
6. Go on beaches
Close your eyes and think that the sea has swallowed you while you stand in Punta de Teno.
7.What to eat in Tenerife
Leave Guachinche through the villages of the north of the island and eat carnita fiesta, chickpeas, cheese with red mojo … whatever but with a glass of wine next door.
8. Explore more
Think for a moment that you have landed in Ireland when you are at the foot of the greatness of the Cliffs of the Giants.
9. Let your fantasy fly into science fiction novels when you’re in front of the Drago de Icod de los Vinos
It is said that this National Monument may be one of the oldest living beings on the planet.
10. Tour the historic center of San Cristobal de La Laguna
The first Spanish colonial style city in the world and finish the walk with a chocolate.
