For starters, it has a number of superb national parks. The best-known is Teide National Park, a huge reserve right in the centre of the island, which is crowned by its namesake, Mount Teide. This soaring summit is actually a dormant
volcano, which blasted and crafted the island over many millions of years, leaving a legacy of craggy peaks, cutting canyons, bizarre rock formations and sprawling lava fields. It's the reason so many visitors come to explore this island on foot, hiking their way around the foothills and mountains, and exploring its fascinating rock layers and geological treasures.

Of course if you prefer something a little more family-friendly, Tenerife is happy to oblige. There are stacks of fantastic family hotels in popular resorts all over the island, ranging from budget-friendly apartments to hotels with kids' clubs and water parks. Check out these Trip Advisor reviews to help you find a favourite. For family activities, try the huge Siam Park near Costa Adeje - a fantastic water park that offers fun for all ages - or head to Loro Parque near Puerto de la Cruz in the north, to get up close and personal with exotic animals and rainbow-coloured birdlife.

So whether you're an avid geologist or a sun-seeking beach-lover, isn't it time you explored Tenerife?
