This fabulous course on the island's north-west was once a banana plantation. The fairways run right alongside the rugged lava coastline and the fantastic Atlantic views have been known to distract even the most focused of golfers.
No handicap required!
(Length men 5,750 m; women 4,951 m/par 71)
Located at the base of Mount Teide, these links make up the island's oldest course. Dense vegetation, long established trees and deep gullies provide lots of incentive to keep the ball on the fairways. Handicap men: 24 / women: 28
With approximately 222,000 inhabitants Santa Cruz de Tenerife is not only the island's capital but also Tenerife's largest city. Many decide to explore the impressive old town with its many landmarks and attractions on foot, making regular detours into the many air conditioned stores or enticing cafes. The city's busy harbour also draws many visitors.
The impressive height of 3,718 m makes Mount Teide not only the tallest mountain in all of Spain, it also makes it the largest formation rising from the Atlantic and the largest peak in the European Union that isn't part of the Alps. A cable car goes almost all of the way to the top, an area that is often covered in snow despite the island's mild year round climate. Needless to say, the view from the peak is simply breathtaking and always worth the trip. Surrounding the mountain is the 'Parque Nacional del Teide y de las Cañadas' (World Heritage Site and National Park) - a must for nature lovers.
Not far from Santa Cruz, behind the quaint village of San Andrés, a 2 km stretch of sandy beach known as Las Teresitas awaits. The light coloured sands are imported and have been added atop the darker volcanic sands found elsewhere on the island. A popular spot for relaxing and working on the holiday tan.
Covering 125,000 sqm, the spacious enclosures and landscaped grounds of the Loro Parque parrot park located on the outskirts of Puerto de la Cruz have made it famous around the world. In addition to being the largest collection of parrots on the planet, the park also has an aquarium with a viewing tunnel, over 200 penguins of varying subspecies and many other zoological and botanical attractions.
The south-east part of Puerto de la Cruz is home to the Jardin Botánico - a botanical garden that literally traces its roots back over two centuries. Covering approximately 25,000 sqm, it includes shady oases of tranquillity, lots of exotic flowers and fruit trees from all over the globe and a large pond that is home to various plants, water lilies and turtles.
