Far from the Spanish mainland, Tenerife sits deep into the ocean, and the heart of the island beats through lush forests in the towering mountains. The large number of tourists flock the islands every year because of the ethereal beauty of nature captured in every cranny of Tenerife. The perfect weather of Tenerife is just an icing on the culture laden island for the visitors looking for an impeccable far-away experience.
With two airports here, Tenerife South (Reina Sofia) near Los Cristianos and Tenerife North (Los Rodeos) by La Laguna, the accessibility to this romantic haven is easier and comfortable. And, while your families pull their socks up for the preparations of your Dday celebrations right in the heart of the island of your dreams, sneak out with your partner, runaway for a day or two to watch the whales, shop unreasonably, indulge in water sports, go climbing in Teide and return with a bag full of memories. This island, the best work of nature’s drama with its extraordinary diversity, has eight golf courses to play all year round. And, the Flamenco dancers and the live music of a Mariachi band will definitely liven up any ceremony.
