Picturesque fishing villages in Tenerife merge with spectacular natural beauty at the foot of Mount Teide, one of the largest volcanoes in the world and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
La Laguna was the first city to be founded in Tenerife, and its beautiful historic centre, with its straight streets and without any walls, defined a model that was exported to the American colonies given its beauty and practicality. Wandering around the historic centre of La Laguna and admiring its convents and colonial palaces is an experience you must not miss if you visit Tenerife on holiday. Nor should you miss walking through La Orotava, admiring all the stately mansions, hermitages and churches. On the north coast, and after crossing extensive banana plantations, we reach the Los Gigantes cliffs and Punta de Teno. One of the wildest and most beautiful beaches on the island is Benijo Beach, with its black sand and ancient volcanic vents.
