What you need to know before going to Tenerife

Tenerife is a destination that receives many visitors each year, with more than 5 million tourists a year. For this reason, we recommend you to book in advance your activities and excursions. Club Canary has special offers if you book in advance, so you will not miss any activity during your holidays. Moreover, in general Spain is a safe country. Therefore, you should not feel unsafe during your trip to Tenerife. In addition, the temperatures in Tenerife are quite good. However, we also recommend that you bring some warm clothes for your visit to the north and the Teide.

What is Tenerife best known for

Undoubtedly, Tenerife is best known because of its astonishing beaches, either in the South or the North of the island. However, another must-see is Teide National Park, where there are the most stunning views of the whole island. Moreover, when night falls, it becomes a magical place for stargazing. And of course, you should visit the capital city: Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Close to the city, the Anaga Rural Park is located, a place in the nature where you can enjoy hiking. Additionally, there are some other important places to visit, for example, the Basílica Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria, Los Gigantes cliffs and the Drago tree, in Icod de los Vinos.

How long is flight to Tenerife

Tenerife has an international airport, receiving flights from all over the world. In order to situate the archipelago geographically, it is important to know that the Canary Islands belong to Spain, but are closer to the African continent. To give you an approximation, from Manchester & London the flight takes around 4.5 hours, from Berlin, Germany 5.5 hours. From Amsterdam to Tenerife the flight also takes 4.5 hours. Meanwhile, if you are travelling from the USA, the flight can last more than 10 hours. Not all flights are direct, but sometimes they make a stopover in Madrid or Barcelona. From Madrid the flight takes almost 3 hours and from Barcelona 3.5 hours. It is also important to clarify that Tenerife has two airports, one in the south and one in the north. You can reach your hotel by public bus, taxi or rent a car.

In Los Cristianos there are very good and luxurious restaurants. To have a lovely breakfast or brunch, the most ideal cafés are: Palmera Coffee Brunch and Pistacho Coffe Brunch. About the restaurants, these are the most delicious to have lunch or dinner: La Piazzetta del Mar (seafood), Oro di Napoli (pizza), Empire Modern British Restaurant & Steak House and, finally, Meson Catellano. However, we would like to recommend you some less known restaurants. For example: Chamachete (Tijoco Bajo, Adeje), Las Gangarras (Arona) and El Rancho de Nino (Arona).
