Tenerife Beyond the Beaches

Tenerife Beyond the Beaches

Regular visitors to Tenerife and residents will know that the island is rich in culture and there is so much that lies beyond the beaches of Tenerife.

We thought we’d take a peek at some of the best upcoming events in Tenerife’s calendar over the next month to give you a small taste of what the island has to offer…

The Wine Bus

Every Saturday up to the 18th December Vineyards throw open their doors (and their bottles!) to 'La guagua del vino 2010', the wine bus! Its a very enjoyable way to taste the local wines and not have to worry about how to get home!
