Just off the northwest coast of Africa are the seven Canary Islands. Tenerife is the largest of these, and it is home to Spain’s largest volcano, Teide.
Take the three-hour hike along the Barranco del Infierno (Hell's Ravine) in Tenerife South, and contemplate on the effect of water erosion over the last seven million years on the landscape. Dotting the huge ravine are curious rock formations sculpted by nature. Also marvel at the diversity of life, which include buzzards, an assortment of lizards, and the expertly camouflaged green frog. The hike finishes at a beautiful waterfall, where more contemplation can take place.
Don Chicharro is a tapas bar along Calle General Franco that provides great value for your money. They serve a wide variety of tapas, including crab, shrimps, mussels, and scallops. It's open from Monday to Friday from 8 am until midnight, and besides tapas, they also serve excellent coffee, natural milkshakes, and sandwiches with generous fillings. Time your visit to Tenerife on a full moon, and enjoy one of the best full moon parties at Vai Moana in Las Galletas. Every month, during the full moon, Vai Moana organises a party, regularly attended by the island's “in” crowd. When the bar gets too crowded, grab a bottle of your favourite beverage and camp out on the beach right beside the bar. If you want fresh food, nothing beats the prices and value offered at the numerous farmers' markets.
