The Canary Islands are filled with your choice of lush landscapes, sights and pearlescent beaches beckoning you to relax along the stretch of the many shores. But no other Canary island is bigger or better than Tenerife. The island has an annual Carnival that rivals that of its Spanish descendant, Rio de Janeiro and packs just the same amount of raw passion and unbridled celebration. And with an increase in popularity, accommodation and any Tenerife flights through major airlines is cheap and almost always available all year round. Remember, the island is in no way a ‘Spain-light’ but a force of authentic Canarian culture, which can be seen in its cuisine, music and food.
