'''Tenerife''' is the largest of the [[Canary Islands]] and is a great place to travel. British and German tourists come in their tens of thousands every year to visit its spectacular beaches and lively nightlife.  It is also very popular among holidaymakers from the Spanish peninsula, especially during Easter time. Tenerife is probably one of the last European paradise isles. It offers lush forests, exotic fauna and flora, deserts, mountains, volcanoes, incredibly beautiful coastlines and spectacular beaches.

There are some wonderful drives all around the island. There are long winding mountain roads with breathtaking scenery but they might be a challenge for less skilled drivers. Popular destination is [[Masca]] village located about 1 hour drive north of [[Los Gigantes]] (parking spaces are very limited). For those who do not rent/own a car in most resorts there are companies organizing coach trips there.

The south is full of plenty of junk food restaurants with hamburgers, pizza, chips, etc.  There are 15 McDonald's including some on the beaches. Also note that in touristic hotspots such as Playa de las Americas, menus are available in numerous languages ranging from English, German, Russian and some Scandinavian languages, making it very easy to choose even if you are not familiar with the local dishes' names or don't understand Spanish.

Lots of Chinese Restaurants are also available in Tenerife. You can eat as much as you can (buffet) paying fixed price like 6€ or 6.50€, let's say the price is different according to the variety of food.
