An online article has praised Tenerife for discarding its reputation as a low-end holiday destination, with many flocking to the largest Canary Island for its fantastic golf and wonderful array of food.
The article, which was published in the Financial Times, suggests that the image of Tenerife first started to change in the late 1990s when the first of the nine golf courses were built on the island. Tenerife is renowned for its fantastic golf facilities and whether you’re enjoying a family holiday in Costa Adeje, Los Cristianos or other hotspots across the island, you won’t be more than a short drive away from one of the fabulous fairways which the island is famed for.
The golf courses on the island have hosted a variety of high-profile events over the years, including the BMW Cup in 1999 and the Tenerife Ladies Open in 2005, 2008 and 2009. To learn more about the golf courses, check out our complete guide here.
Another aspect which Tenerife has become particularly revered for is the outstanding food served, particularly on the west coast where you can find two of three Michelin-starred restaurants on the island: the two-star M.B and Kabuki, a Japanese fusion restaurant which earned its star in 2013. The other restaurant with Michelin-star status is Kazan, a Japanese restaurant located in the island’s capital of Santa Cruz. According to Tinsa, the Spanish property valuations experts, the value of homes in Costa Adeje rose by 5.9 per cent in the 12 months to the end of March, proof of the growing appeal of the island.
