A Potpourri of Experiences

Tenerife is not like it once was. Nowadays, a real, more natural Tenerife has emerged with a newfound status as the island that’s got it all. If you still enjoy your sun and sangria in equal measure, it will always be a great place to visit, yet with so much else to see and do (away from the bars and strips), Tenerife is basking in a reputation as the go-to destination for family fun and adventure.

Food & Drink in Tenerife

Get ready for a taste sensation, Canarian style. As you would expect, the gastronomy in Tenerife has a big Spanish influence yet has a hint of African and Latin in its melting pot.

A traditional Canarian dish is papasarrugadas (wrinkled potatoes) or sometimes simply referred to as Canarian potatoes. Cooked in salt with their skins still on, they are simple and flavoursome when served with mojos (sauces), which are used for dipping. Fish lovers will be in paradise on Tenerife thanks to the abundance of great seafood and fresh fish.

Fresh fruit is also a key part of the Canarian diet – stocks of bananas, papayas, strawberries and mangos are in good supply and frequently go into the many drinks on offer. After you meal, the local beverage ronmiel, a sweet honey rum is typically served.
