Tenerife Location: Atlantic Ocean (Off the West Coast of Morocco)
The Canary Islands are Spain’s tropical paradise. The island of Tenerife is the largest of the Canary archipelago (2,053 square km). Visitors to these islands enjoy excellent weather year round, plus a huge variety of scenery and terrain. On the island of Tenerife you will find extremely varied plant life, large wooded mountains, and extensive areas where banana, tomato, potato and other agricultural products are grown. The beaches themselves are spectacular! The sand is soft and clean, with some beaches made up of black sand, while others have gold-colored sand.

Tenerife is a shopping paradise due to the fact that there are no customs imposed on goods purchased. Not even the tax-free shops at airports can compete with prices in the Canaries. Besides being able to purchase your “standard” items, the islands offer visitors the chance to purchase exotic items such as Nigerian crocodile skin, beautiful pieces of carved ivory made on the banks of the Ganges (India), and exquisite Chinese silk. This is the place to go to find the most curious and rare objects.
