This island might strike a cord with young party goers but there is much more to it than meets the eye. As one of the canaries volcanic islands, its nature is quite vast and rich. Even though we had intended on a relaxing holiday by the pool, we still embarked on quite a few activities. We made sure to get a good view of Mount Tiede, the highest peak in Spain. The landscape is absolutely amazing as you can see from these un-edited pics below.
Tenerife has a fare share of tourist attractions but we just visited the natural museum, which harbours quite a bit of the island’s history and its formation. Of course visiting the local markets when abroad goes without saying for me. One of the best meals we had on the island was actually in the market, which was a simple plate of black rice and fish, cooked by the chef in front of you.
It was also on this island where I had my first encounter with a black beach. Where I come from, the beach is immaculately dressed with fine white sands and sea shells. Hasta luego! x
