Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands, located west of Africa and southwest of Morocco’s coast. By being on the same latitude as Sahara desert, Tenerife enjoys a warm weather all year round. The island itself is of a volcanic origin with the Mount Teide, the highest mountain in the Spain and 3rd largest volcano in the world. A daily trek to volcano is highly recommended and is one of the main attraction of the island for those who don’t only want to sunbathe or dive. The volcanic origin of Tenerife is visible under the water too, with many caves an swim troughs. The island hosts large diversity, while there is a desertic habitat on the south, only a few kilometers north you can walk through thick, green and cool forests and enjoy dramatic cliffs and stunning views. Warm and clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean allow diving all year round. The water temperature ranges from 26 degrees in the summer/autumn to 18 degrees in the winter.
