Tenerife

Teneriffe was the old name in English, before the island became a popular tourist destination. The use of the Spanish native word ‘Tenerife’ is now the correct name. But where is the word Tenerife coming from? Same as many places names in the Canary Islands, the word Tenerife is not Spanish at all. It comes in fact from ‘ten er efez’, name given by the old aborigines of La Palma, an island nearby. It meant ‘White Mountain’ (ten = mountain, er efez = white), referring to the Mountain Teide, easily visible from that island.

 

Los Cristianos is situated 15 km's west of the southern airport (Reina Sofía).This is without a doubt one of the most popular resorts on the Canary Islands. The artificial beaches are very nice and it has a wonderful harbour that offers fishing trips, pleasure cruises, glass bottom boats, diving excursions and ferries to La Gomera.
