Tenerife is a sub-tropical paradise that offers something for everyone. The island is 81 km long and 45 km wide and dominated by the now dormant volcano "Mount Teide", which at 12,000ft is the highest mountain in Spain. To the south, the ever popular resorts of Playa de Las Americas and Los Cristianos are basked in year round sunshine, whilst the north of the island is a lush green tropical paradise of banana plantations, palm trees and flowers.
There are many Golf courses in the south of Tenerife, probably the best being Golf Costa Adeje. Others include: Golf del Sur, Amarilla Golf, and Golf las Americas. You can also enjoy Dolphin and Whale watching trips off the coast of Tenerife.

Playa de Las Americas started life around 30 years ago as a handful of hotels around a man-made beach with sand imported from the Sahara. Since then, it's grown to be one of the largest holiday resorts in Europe once combined with the suburbs of San Eugenio, Fañabe, Torviscas and Costa Adeje.
The resort is full of huge shopping malls crammed with shops selling electrical appliances, beachwear, sports kit, leather goods and souvenirs. Some of the best include Parque Santiago, San Eugenio and Fañabé.

and has a bit of history. Prior to undergoing major development and
becoming a booming tourist resort, Los Cristianos was a small fishing
village. It has an old town centre with Catholic church, stretching
from the port up to the main shopping street Avenida de Suecia.

between Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson. This Tenerife golf course, design
by Pepe Gancedo, is a thoroughly enjoyable layout in which one's attention
is immediately caught by the black volcanic sand en the bunkers.
