Tenerife has moved on. This stunning island has shed its old image to reveal a more natural side and is now revelling in its new status as the destination that’s got it all. From your luxurious home-away-from-home at one of CLC World’s collection of the best resorts in Tenerife, you’ll be exposed to a wide range of sights, sounds and experiences – carnival celebrations, unique history and natural wonders are just a few our guests highlight in their great reviews of CLC Tenerife.
If you still enjoy your sun and sangria in equal measure, it will always be a great place to visit. Yet when you can climb the majestic Mount Teide, go whale watching in the Atlantic, or visit Siam Park (one of the world’s most spectacular water attractions), it’s little wonder some regard Tenerife as the land of a thousand experiences.
Get ready for a taste sensation, Canarian style – all from the plush comfort of your CLC World Tenerife resort. As you would expect, the gastronomy in Tenerife has a big Spanish influence, yet also in the melting pot you will taste a hint of African and Latin.
A traditional Canarian dish is papas arrugadas (wrinkled potatoes) or sometimes simply referred to as ‘Canarian potatoes’. Cooked in salt with their skins still on, they are simple and flavoursome when served and dipped in mojos (sauces). Fish lovers will be in paradise during their stay at a CLC resort in Tenerife, thanks to the abundance of great seafood and fresh fish on the island.
Fresh fruit is also a key part of the Canarian diet – stocks of bananas, papayas, strawberries and mangos are in good supply and frequently go into the many drinks on offer. After your meal, Ron Miel, a local beverage of sweet honey rum, is typically served.
Fill yourself with energy with an endless selection of activities on your getaway to a CLC World resort in Tenerife. Get lost in nature. Relax on the beach. Admire picturesque old towns. Have fun at a theme park. Play golf alongside the turquoise sea. You choose… t’s your holiday.
