Mount Teide National Park is dominated by El Teide volcano with a 3718 meters (12198 feet) summit making it the highest point in Spain, and one of the world’s largest volcanoes, raising over 7000 meters (22965 feet) above the seabed. Mount Teide is dormant and last erupted on the 18 of November 1909.
Tenerife is also known for its annual carnival which attracts crowds of people from all over Europe. It is one of the biggest carnivals in the world.
Tenerife beaches are formed from black sand due to nature of the volcanic rock. However most of them are now having the black sand replaced with white, which is imported from Africa. The beaches in Tenerife are very safe. A lot of them are “Blue Flag” beaches having life guards, amenities and breakwaters to stop bigger waves hitting the beaches.
