The region

Santiago del Teide is a municipality in the southwest of the Island. It stretches from the coastline of Puerto Santiago to the pine forests of the Teide, overcoming a vertical drop of 1000 meters. The year-round stable climate, the beauty of the landscapes and the pleasant water temperatures are reason enough to enjoy nature and the sea in Santiago del Teide. In the higher elevations, the community captivates with its contrasts between the volcanic landscape and the vineyards, almond tree and fig tree plantations. The Chinyero volcano in the Chinyero Nature Reserve was the last volcano to break out in Tenerife in 1909.
