In Italy the cold has fallen on our cities but for many it is difficult to accept that you have to leave the beaches, the long days and the beauty of spending a day at the sea. We have the solution to your problem !!! If you want a place to rejuvenate all year round, where you can have a swim in the Christmas season and spend the New Year on one of the many beaches dancing under the Spanish moon, the place for you is Tenerife. A magical island, rich not only of beaches but also of natural and historical beauties; an island where you can enjoy music, parties, fashion and locals, as well as stroll through the picturesque and characteristic villages that the island has to offer! Tenerife is part of the Canary Islands, which are seven volcanic islands, part of Spain, even though they are an autonomous community. Located in the archipelago of eternal spring is an ideal destination all year round; during the summer the climate is very hot although temperate. We advise you to choose the spring time where the climate reaches optimal temperatures for a day at the sea but also for long walks. High season periods are the summer, Christmas and February, the month when the famous Carnival is celebrated, which always attracts many tourists from all over the world. The island has two airports, one to the north and the other to the south. You land on the island, you can rent a car or a scooter for long and wide but if you want to stay away from traffic stress you can use quietly working buses or cabs. 

Tenerife lends itself to different types of tourists based on passions; For nightlife lovers, we recommend moving south, where nightclubs and nightclubs are crowded amongst various localities such as Playa de las Américas, Los Cristianos and Costa Adeje that attract young people from all ages from all over Europe. You can decide whether to spend your night in a disco, club, on a terrace or in an alternative location by listening to any kind of music and dancing until dawn. You will be spoiled for choice, you will have the opportunity to experience a different experience every night and in a different place. Tenerife, however, is not just nightlife, as there are many typical towns to visit such as La Laguna, a northern university town that hosts bars, clubs and entertainment, but here you will have the opportunity to breathe an authentic and characteristic air with his a charming old town, which in 1999 was placed in the pearls of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Not to be missed, Santa Cruz, located on the East Coast is the island’s capital’s port city; here you can visit the auditorium, designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, but you can also visit the Museo de Bellas Artes or the Museo de la Naturalezza y El Hombre. For trekking lovers, however, we recommend moving to the heart of Tenerife; to the north of the island there is the route to the Anaga Mountains that lead to the village of Taganana where you can admire a stunning rocky coast. We also recommend moving to Punta del Hidalgo, a small town on the ocean with rocky mountains behind.

We come to the most important aspect, what many were … the most beautiful beaches on the island !!! Of course speaking of an island there are beaches that sprout everywhere but we present only the best, the most suggestive for the black sand, for the panorama or for the surrounding nature. Los Cristianos, Playa de las Américas and Costa Adeje. This triangle, located to the south of the island, forms the kingdom of golden sandy beaches; magnificent and close to each other, here you can enjoy diving to discover the underwater world of Tenerife. Playa del Benaco, Playa de Almacida and Playa de Benijo are the volcanic black sandy beaches ideal for water sports enthusiasts but especially for the Surf. A beach that few know is Playa Masca reachable only by sea or with a suggestive three hour hike through a gorge; Once reached you will find yourself on a small earthly paradise. El Bollullo is one of the most beautiful and spectacular natural beaches in Tenerife. Its fine volcanic sand and rock rocks can be reached on foot from Puerto de la Cruz, following a trail that crosses the banana plantations with ocean views or a half-hour hiking leaving. Tenerife is a destination that will also conquer you for its gastronomy; of course, being an island, you will find a fish-based culinary culture however the specialties to enjoy are many, flavored with spicy spice and the sweetness of local bananas. Do not miss the papas arrugadas, typical dish, poor but very tasty; They are specially baked potatoes with pepper, seasoned with salt and accompanied by Mojo, green room with olive oil, garlic, coriander and spicy sauce. Another typical dish (as well as all over Spain) are also the Bocadillos, sandwiches filled with various ingredients. We suggest concluding with the Bienmesabe, typical and tasty sweet with biscuits, lemon, sugar, eggs and almonds.
