Tenerife is the largest and most populous island of the seven Canary Islands with 43 percent of the total population of the Canary Islands, and is also the most populous island of Spain.
Tenerife is also the most visited island in the Canary island group, welcoming over ten million visitors per year with its lovely weather, beautiful coastlines, spectacular beaches, lush forests, mountains, volcanoes, as well as two world heritage sites, one National Park, and 42 natural protected spaces.
The weather is one of the main reasons for the influx of visitors to Tenerife’s shores with almost guaranteed sunshine year round. As a result, this family friendly island is consistently one of Europe’s top winter sun destinations.
Though the island has 2 airports, inter island travel is best by ferry. As the largest island in the group, Tenerife acts as a hub for many of the other Canary Islands with frequent crossings offered by Spain’s best known ferry operators. There are also regular crossings connecting Tenerife to the mainland for those who enjoy spending their travel time at sea.
Spain is a beautiful and diverse country located in the south west of Europe. As a country well known for its beaches, the geographical and cultural diversity in Spain often comes across as a surprise to its visitors.
This exotic country really has it all, from lush meadows, green valleys and hills to snowy mountains and almost desert zones in the South. No wonder Spain ranks the third most visited European country.
In terms of getting to Spain by ferry, with the North, East and South sides of the country facing the Sea, there’s no shortage of options. From the UK, there are regular scheduled crossings available and though the crossings on offer are long, the ships are cruise like in standard which makes for an extremely pleasant trip. The same applies to the connection across the Mediterranean Sea from Italy.
From the North African coast, you can depart from Morocco, Melilla and Algeria. The services from Morocco in particular are very popular with many companies operating the connection across the strait of Gibraltar.
The Balearic and Canary Islands provide numerous connections to the mainland.
