On a luxury holiday to Tenerife with Elegant Resorts, you'll be surprised to find stylish hotels, gorgeous beaches and incredible natural beauty, far away from the areas lost to overzealous development. Sleepy colonial towns nestle side-by-side with golf courses, meadows and mountain trails, and looming over the island, Mount Teide - the world's third largest volcano - sleeps a majestic slumber.
Nature's less explosive contributions include 'jungle-esque' rainforests in the mountains of Anaga; soft sandy beaches in the surfer's paradise of El Medano and the vertiginous cliffs leaning over Los Gigantes in the west, while high in the interior tiny hamlets hide beneath a fringe of pine forest. Head to northern Tenerife and you’ll find rich crops, peaceful villages and fertile mountain slopes with restaurants serving authentic Canarian dishes and wine. Do try the fish it’s the mainstay of local cuisine and will be freshly- caught.
