's Canary Islands
for. The local market in this corner of Tenerife
is perfect for a weekend wander, while Playa San Juan's the spot for jumping into the sea. You can find quiet parts of the beach for relaxing in peace, while other stretches buzz with watersports and tapas restaurants.
Come sail away
With oodles of fishing villages and harbours, boat trips are the thing to do here. Pilot whales and giant squid are just a few of the Mediterranean residents you might catch a glimpse of. Daytrips to Costa Adeje
are worth a shout, too, with waterparks, hiking trails and beaches all within reach.
Wining and dining
Sample some time-honoured Spanish classics at an authentic restaurant. From traditional meze platters to hearty seafood paella, there are loads of top-notch options around the area. Snack on olives and manchego cheese, both extra scrumptious when washed down with a fizzy tinto de verano – a cold drink similar to sangria.
If climbing's your cup of tea, Guia de Isora has some gems. Mount Teide's a tourist favourite for its jaw-dropping views of the volcanic coastline. Masca's a pint-sized mountain village that punches way above its weight in terms of views.
