Sur Reina Sofia - Tenerife's biggest airport
The Tenerife South Airport, previously known as Tenerife Sur Reina Sofia Airport, is one of the two international airports located on the island of Tenerife. It's the largest one of its kind on the Canary Islands.
The airport hosts over 40 airlines from all over the world. Located on the island's resort side, the Sur Reina Sofia Airport sees over 7 million passengers annually. It's about 60 kilometres far from Santa Cruz, the capital of Tenerife. You can continue your trip on a wide range of rental cars, buses or taxis to reach every part of the island.
It was built in the late sixties, the island's authorities said they needed a new airport at a new location because the north airport did not meet the technical requirements due to adverse weather conditions. The airport was opened by Queen Sofia on 6 November 1978. The first flight was an Iberia running flight from Lanzarote.

On the western coast of Tenerife, the cliffs next to Los Gigantes are the symbolic attraction of the island. The huge slabs rise steeply from the warm waves of the Atlantic Ocean. This is definitely one of the most beautiful attractions of the small seaside town, and even if you are staying in a different part of the island, it’s recommended that you rent a car and spend a day in Los Gigantes.
According to a report by the European Union, Tenerife has the cleanest beaches in Europe. In their natural form, the beaches on the island have black, volcanic sand; the ones with golden sand have had it transported from the Sahara. Beaches with yellow sand can mainly be found near the capital, Santa Cruz.
