The highest cliffs can be found in the fishing village Puerto de Santiago in the west. Car rental in Tenerife is the best way to tour around the island, for it offers great flexibility to travel at your own pace.

Pico del Teide

One of the most characteristic attractions of Tenerife is the caldera, a large crater formed by volcanic explosion or by collapse of a volcanic cone. The Las Cañadas caldera is located on 2000 meters altitude and has a diameter of 14 kilometers. Volcano El Teide, with a summit of 3718 meters, is the highest mountain in Spain. The volcano and its surroundings comprise the Teide National park, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. Why not take a scenic drive in your rental car in Tenerife and enjoy the magnificent views?

The extrodinary shaped rock Formations of Los Roques

The bizarre looking rock formations of Los Roques, Los Azulejos and Zapato de la Reina attract many tourists. Besides the El Teide the other high peaks are Las Cañadas Cerrillar, the Chiqueros, the Colmenas, the Pico Viejo and Guajara. The stunning canyon-like gorges walk from the center to the coast. A rental car on Tenerife can help you reach the rock formations with ease.

Tax free shopping at Santa Cruz

The capital of Tenerife Santa Cruz de Tenerife is situated on the east coast. It is a big city with an important port for cargo and cruise ships. Here you can shop tax free. On the west coast is Playa de San Juan, from this place you get a beautiful view over the Atlantic Ocean to the neighboring island of La Gomera. Car rental in Tenerife helps you to quickly and comfortably reach Playa San Juan.

Puerto de la Cruz

Car hire in Tenerife is convenient especially when visiting the varied surroundings. The hospitable local people will show you the passage from the Teide to the coast. Puerto de la Cruz is located on the north coast in the valley of La Orotava at the foot of the volcano Teide. With a beautiful boulevard with quaint shops and cozy restaurants, it is definitely worth visiting.

Pack your hiking gear in your rental car and take a breathtaking hike

If you like hiking, Tenerife is the place to be. Tenerife has hundreds of marked trails. In particular, the village Vilaflor offers excellent opportunities for hiking. Why not let your rental car take you to the best hiking places on the island?

No travel tips, you have to find out yourself. When you look for sunshine only, don't go to Medano, where it is very windy all year round: makes it an ideal place for wind- and kite surfing, though.

I'm afraid we had lot's of good intentions but in 9 days we did not get to see much of this beautiful island even though we had the car. We stayed at the Cordial Golf Plaza Apartment Complex close to the Airport - excellent accommodation as we wished to steer clear of the busy areas. We will definitely get back to do more of the touristy things. Food and alcohol were excellent value.

Have a thorough look on the maps and destination guides in advance. The island is almost too popular, and thus many things that require adcanve booking are often not available for the last minute tourist. Also, as there are continuous roadworks, try to find info about them in advance as the signposting does not necessarily follow the road closures etc. and that might not be updated on the navigators (and most certainly is not on the printed maps).
