The two main tourist centers are:

Playa de Las Americas, in the south, sprung up recently and developed disproportionately in a short time with modern hotels, accommodation complexes with each type of service, shopping centers, pubs and clubs. Playa de Las Americas is located about 20 km from Tenerife South Airport which has a drier climate than in Puerto. Here are located lava sand beaches equipped for water sports.

The capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife is famous for its Carnival celebrations, parades of floats, samba schools and music along the streets and squares. Santa Cruz holds an important artistic heritage: the missed church of Nuestra Señora.
