A mountain chain runs through its centre. In the heart of this chain, there is a gigantic crater: Teide (the highest peak in Spain). It offers one of the most spectacular landscapes of the world. Tenerife has beaches with soft, clean sand that is sometimes black (from its volcanic origin) and sometimes golden. The carnival of Tenerife is a world-famous festivity and takes place all over the island but it shines with all its splendor in Puerto de la Cruz and Santa Cruz.
Puerto de la Cruz has international attractions, excellent restaurants, cafés, and other facilities which contribute to its busy air. Numerous national and international congresses and conventions are held there. The island has good communications, especially with the Spanish peninsula, by numerous sea and air links. There are flights to Tenerife every day from Madrid and several times a week from Barcelona, Bilbao, Malaga and Seville.
