I’m pretty sure that everything interesting about this island was already told as Tenerife is the best known and the most visited from the Canarian islands.
On the other hand I am convinced that no matter how good narrator you are, words are not enough to describe the beauty and greatness of this island. I myself had read a lot about it, had seen lots and lots of pictures and felt prepared to meet Tenerife. Well, believe me, I was not! From the first day until the last one I lived in a continuous state of bewilderment, I was like a child left alone in a toys shop. You simply can not capture either in words or on photos the amazing beauty you find all over the island, no matter if this refers to the multi-coloured flowers, winding roads, rocky mountains, tumultuous waves, sandy or pebbly beaches... You simply must go there and see with your own eyes.
There were moments when I was just asking myself: am I dead and reached the Paradise?

If you ask me what's so special about this place, I'm not sure I'll be able to tell you. I can list a number of places like: Loro Parque, Los Christianos, Pueblo Chicho, Guymar, Los Gigantes, Teresitas, Masca... and, of course, the great El Teide... And so what? you could ask again. Well, probably it depends a lot on your frame of mind at a certain moment, on your spirit and soul, I don't know... All I can say is that for instance I saw El Teide every single day, no matter which was our route, either in the morning or in the evening we were there saying a mute hello to the Master. It was like a spell, like a mermaid's song... you just couldn't help going there over and over again.

Take it as an invitation to go and see Tenerife...
Enjoy it!
