By car, there are many beautiful routes such as Pico del Teide, the highest mountain in Spain, Santa Cruz, the capital, La Laguna, Garrachico and Masca. We rent a car with TRC, for years our car hire in Tenerife. The car is brought to the port and we can enjoy a day of touring around.
Pico del Teide
First we go to the Pico del Teide, because in the morning there is no cloud cover. The journey to the top offers a lot of beautiful views. By car you arrive at an altitude of 2300 meters. With the cable car you can go to an altitude of 3400 meters.
Garachico is a typical Spanish village with little tourism. We stop for a delicious tapas lunch in a courtyard of a typical Spanish building. A stroll along the promenade brings us to the new marina. The last time we were here by boat, but it was almost impossible to get back out there. The day we were leaving they were surfing in the harbor entrance!
A tourist attraction, but still very authentic. A beautiful valley and the road to Masca is spectacular.
