Tenerife is the largest island of Canaries. The capital of the island, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, is the seat of the local government (cabildo insular).

The island of Tenerife was sculped by different volcanic eruptions, the last one happened at Cañadas de Teide in the eighteenth century.
The Teide volcano, which rises 3,718 meter above sea level is visible from most parts of the island. It is not only the highest mountain of the Canary Islands, but also the highest point in all of Spain. At some points the crater of the volcano is seventeen kilometers long.
Valleys and ravines are a characteristic element of the landscape of Tenerife.The most important valleys are Valle de La Orotava and Valle de Güímar. The most important tourist resort on the nothern part of the island, Puerto de la Cruz, is situated in the Valle de la Orotava.
On the northern part of the island the coastline is typically steep and rugged. But Tenerife also offers some nice sandy beaches, like the Playa del Médano or the Playa de las Americas, with much finer sand than the beaches of black sand on the northcoast.
