Tenerife is a beautiful island, sitting peacefully in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa, but belonging to Spain.
The volcanic landscape surrounding Mount Teide dominates a significant part of the island and is home to some beautiful desert flora and fauna.
Grand, secular and spiritual architecture references Spain's glorious past as an ambitious sea faring nation and empire. Today, the island is dotted with tourist resorts, anonymous, concrete blocks that frame the beaches upon which tourists toast themselves under the warming sun throughout the year.
The marine life enjoy the sea green ocean as do the paddle boarders and surfers and an array of lighthouses shine their light into the world beyond Tenerife.
