  • Welcome to our guide to Tenerife, Spain.

    Tenerife, is the largest of the seven Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa it is part of Spain. The island's population is 839,000 (2006 census) although this is considerably increased by the all your round tourist population..

    The capital city is Santa Cruz de Tenerife. All the Canary Islands are volcanic in origin and Tenerife is divided into two distinct parts, a very dry southern part and a green and humid north.

    The bulk of the tourist area is to the South of the island and the Reina Sofia airport in the 7th busiest in Spain.

    Public transport on the island is provided by an extensive network of buses (Guaguas) and run by T.I.T.S.A. who operate a fleet of modern, air-conditioned buses which, generally, run on time. Drivers are helpful, and the mix of tourists and 'locals' (especially in the resort areas) makes for an interesting ride, not to mention it being one of the best ways to actually see the island.
