Golfers can enjoy spectacular views of Mount Teide which can be seen from some of the courses. On others they will be teeing off next to the Atlantic Ocean with the sound of the waves breaking in the background. Added to this there are no great distances to travel to get to the courses wherever you are on the island, which means that you can enjoy playing on every one of them even during a short holiday.

Sun and Sand

Tenerife's many beaches are fine examples of its great natural diversity. Playa Jardin in Puerto de la Cruz is one of the islands most famous beaches with shimmering black volcanic sand, while offering a full range of facilities. Its name symbolises the numerous gardens located along the edge of the beach. At Puerto de la Cruz and its direct surroundings you can also find smaller beaches and a number of natural pools formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. Some beaches are popular and lively, while others are hidden and isolated. There are also beaches that are quiet and relaxing, where the whole family can take a dip in the sea while others are more rugged and untamed and popular amongst surfers. All these beaches guarantee the same crystal-clear waters due to the ocean currents of the Atlantic.
