Contrasts of Tenerife


Tenerife is the largest of the seven main islands of the Canary Islands. Its climate, its wealth of landscapes, its people and its great contrast has made him a first class tourist destination worldwide.

It is the island of eternal spring with an average pleasant temperature all year round allowing you to enjoy its beaches and its nature. But Tenerife is known for an almost unique microclimate in the world, which makes it an island full of contrasts.

These contrasts are reflected especially in the winter months, where you can enjoy a blazing sun on the beaches, while in higher areas there is snow on the peaks and very low temperatures. You go from being in bikini on the beach to be a good shelter in the area of the Teide National Park. It is not unusual to see snow in winter, in fact, usually snows every year in the area of Las Cañadas of Teide and the surrounding area, some two thousand meters.


The climatic features reflect this contrast also because in the south there are more sunny days per year, while in the north it rains more and the humidity is higher. This is reflected in the very different landscapes: high mountain landscapes, lush forests, valleys with tomatoes and banana plantations, fields full of poinsettias, with lunar landscapes near the volcano and drier in coastal areas. The diversity means that there is no presence of flora and varied and numerous fauna and endemic species.


Curiously enough, when you move it is island look like the landscape changes dramatically by simply passing a curve of the road. That makes tourists come looking for a holiday where you can do everything, not just a sun and beach tourism.

Also on the coast you can see the great contrast. You find beaches of fine white sand and others with black sand volcanic origin. Of course, all spectacular. There are also areas with breathtaking cliffs, contrasting with sandy beaches, creating an idyllic coves.

As for the life of its people, you can see very clear contrasts in their habits and lifestyles. Very different is the life of those living by the beach and tourist areas, those living in rural areas live in the countryside. Even the cuisine of the north and south is different. In northern recipes call for more calories to better carry the cooler temperatures, known as the escaldón.
