Discover all the secrets Tenerife has to offer by road with National car hire, experts in offering convenient and professional luxury.
From volcanic mount Teide to the beaches of Las Americas, Tenerife is an island brimming with adventurous spirit and welcoming luxury for those looking for a relaxing break. Networks of winding roads take you through mountainous terrain, alien desert routes and the lush, greener areas of laurel forests. An ideal destination to pack up a picnic, jump in the car and head out and explore.
Being an island you're never far away from a beach - be it opulent white beaches at Playa Las Gaviotas or the volcanic black sands of Playas de Las Arenas, you're certain to end up dipping your toes to cool down in the sea. Plenty of quaint villages are scattered around the island, offering you unspoiled spots to explore and purchase local goods from. Cities such as Santa Cruz, one of the joint-capitals of the Canary Islands, are a welcome contrast to this, and offer numerous shopping opportunities and culture to experience in the many museums and galleries.
Once you've set your eyes upwards you're honour bound to reach the top of the Teide volcano. Opt to drive to the summit, as you get the thrill of winding roads and sheer cliffs to look down as you climb further upwards. You'll be greeted by pine forests and rock formations until you make it to the rather alien surroundings of the Parque National del Teide. The verdant forests transform into a desert-like landscape that draws the imaginations of many a director and has featured in blockbusters such as Clash of the Titans and Star Wars, making it a sight that cannot be missed. A short cable car ride up to the summit and you'll have a view of the entire island and, given the right month, a chance to throw snowballs.
The weather is consistently nice, which makes it a great year round destination - you're guaranteed sunshine no matter which month you arrive - and if the sun becomes too hot you have the gentle breezes coming off the Atlantic Ocean to cool off. The weather makes outdoor attractions always a possibility, and animal parks such as Loro Parque house the usual selection of exotic animals any family would love to see. It's this weather that also makes outdoor dining well into the night popular in the many bars and restaurants that fill the country, a fantastic way to wind down after a day of exploring and guaranteed to make you appreciate the laid-back Spanish culture.
