Walks: ‘Tenerife – South Beaches’, Canary Islands

Tenerife is the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, off West Africa. It’s dominated by Mt. Teide, a dormant volcano that is Spain’s tallest peak. Tenerife may be best known for its Carnaval de Santa Cruz, a huge pre-Lent festival with parades, music, dancing and colorful costumes. The island has many beaches (with sands from yellow to black) and resort areas, including Los Cristianos and Playa de las Américas. 

Los Cristianos is a town on the southwest coast of Tenerife, the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands. A wide promenade skirts the harbor along Los Cristianos Beach, a hub for water sports. Vendors at the nearby Los Cristianos market sell crafts and clothes. To the northeast is Monkey Park, a hands-on zoo with various primates, plus parrots and iguanas. Whales swim offshore. ― Google
