Tenerife (English also Teneriffe), a Spanish island, is the largest of the seven Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa.
It is located at 28°19'N 16°34'W and has a surface area of 2 034 km². Like the rest of the Canary Islands, it is of volcanic origin. The highest point of Spain, Teide (3 718 m), is on this island.
The largest city, Santa Cruz, is the capital of the island and seat of the cabildo insular (island government); it is also the capital of the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and officially co-capital of the autonomous community of the Canary Islands together with Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, although clearly behind this one in terms of population, industry, tourism or gross domestic produce.
The village Güímar is the site of the mysterious Pyramids of Güímar.
Tourism is concentrated more in the south of the island, which is hotter and drier and especially around Playa de las Americas, and Los Cristianos. More recently coastal development has grown northwards from Playa de las Americas and now encompasses the former small enclave of La Caletta.
In the north of the island the main development for tourism has been in the town of Puerto de la Cruz.
This tropical island ranks among beauties like Jamaica and boasts European relaxed living and food. On the south side you have consistent summer, little to no wind, and pretty much perfect beach-weather all year round. All the tourists hang out on the south of the island. On the north you have a more Spanish year-round springtime feel. The weather fluctuates a bit more here, but is also mostly pleasant. On the north side of the island you will find more green, and more vibrant local culture.
In between the north and south of the island sits Spain's tallest peak, the dormant volcano El Teide (3817m above sea level).
