The Tenerife Information Centre - your one-stop resource

Where is Tenerife? What is Tenerife? Well, it's the largest of the seven Canary Islands, which are officially part of Spain, yet find themselves lying in a very nice sub-tropical area just off the west coast of Africa. I lived on this island for eleven years and decided to create this website to be as complete a resource as possible on every aspect of it. It's very much an ongoing project!

 For many Europeans, this small island is a perfect holiday destination, with year-round temperate climate, loads of commercial attractions, plus breathtaking scenery. It also holds the distinction of containing the highest point in the whole of Spain, the summit of Mount Teide, the volcanic peak at its centre.

As a resident for just over a decade, I feel that I have become privy to loads of useful information, which this website can now pass onto you.

here's where it is!

My stint on the island lasted from 1992 until 2003, during which I worked as an entertainer in various bars and restaurants. (If you want to see a really cheesy publicity photo of me from then, click on the "About Me" link.) I experienced all the different sides to the island and got to know all sorts of useful information. I decided to put it all into one place - and here's the result: my Information Centre!

You'll find comprehensive information on the usual stuff: car hire, hotels, self-catering accommodation, attractions, etc - but this website goes much further than that. It provides details on absolutely anything you may want to know about the island.

Of course, the island offers a huge variety of attractions for holidaymakers. Within this site, you'll be able to find information on:

  • Waterparks
  • Zoos
  • Excursions
  • Sightseeing
  • Safaris
  • Mini Cruises

Though I am to sport what The Incredible Hulk is to ballet, my Information Centre has a section dedicated to this. There are loads of sporting activities in which you can participate, or just be a spectator.

On the Sports page, you'll find complete information on:

  • Golf
  • Surfing
  • Windsurfing
  • Scuba Diving
  • Paragliding
  • Tennis
  • Horse Riding
amongst others.

For those of you living on the island, or thinking of relocating there, there is more serious information on such things as:

  • Moving to Tenerife
  • Living in Tenerife
  • Driving in Tenerife
  • Estate agents and lawyers
plus much more.

Some less serious stuff!
