Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and it has an active volcano, Mount Teide, which often rumbles and has a dramatic moonscape landscape now a National Park. Although the playground for the Ventura for most of the winter we went there with the Azura. Other landscapes here are the verdant valleys and lush plantations and vast pinewoods to the glorious beaches. There is a lot to see, many excursions on hand, but Tenerife has a great bus service throughout the island which I tested. We have a film on La Laguna and one on Puerto de La Cruz as well as films on every cruise stop on a Canary Cruise.click here for the New Canary Island cruise menu including West Africa & Cape VerdeAlso take a look at all the tours below to research what the island has to offer. tenerife-santa-cruzTenerife’s cruise port Santa Cruz de Tenerife has grown from a fishing village to the capital city with 300,000 inhabitants. It is a welcoming city with classy bars and restaurants, shops, and interesting museums. It is easy to walk into the city, follow the blue line, cross the road, round the lake and the tourist office is hidden under an eco garden. The city begins right outside the port gates. If you chose to stay in the city you will find a café-lined boulevard leading to the Plaza de Espana, at the heart of the port’s main shopping area. If you prefer museums and galleries, try the Museo de Bellas Artes, which contains works by Bruegel. The Museo de la Naturaleza y El Hombre shows topography, flora and fauna.
