Find where you're going and take the most convenient route with our GPS Navigation System.
Renowned for its sunny beaches and scenic backdrop, Tenerife is the largest of all the Canary Islands. The island is a popular destination with tourists, mainly thanks to the all-year round subtropical temperatures – but Tenerife offers far much more to its visitors. If you hire a car at Tenerife South Airport you'll find it is well places to serve the island's main resorts: it stands close to the shore almost at the southern tip of Tenerife. The island's main road, the TF-1, links to Los Cristianoas and Adeje to the west and the capital, Santa Cruz, to the north.
Tenerife is split in two by the enormous volcanic mountain in the centre of the country - El Teide is Spain's highest mountain and divides Tenerife. If you hire a car at Tenerife South Airport, you'll find you are in the hotter, drier half of the island, as the main beach resorts stretch along the coast to the west. They comprise a mix of five-star complexes and budget package hotels. Sights are few along this coast although Los Gigantes is renowned for its massive imposing cliffs. For adventure head inland: El Teide's volcanic moonscape is a world-class attraction while further north the mysterious pyramids of Guimar are a thought-provoking sight.
