The sunny region on the Canary Islands is particularly well-tended and exclusive, which is why it attracts many holidaymakers who really want to be pampered. Families, singles and seniors feel equally at home here. In order to be able to use the extensive leisure offers optimally, visitors should book a rented car with the car hire in Spain favorably. The car makes an individual stay possible, with which travelers can move at any time independently and comfortably.
El Teide National Park
Autumn is one of the best moments to explore Costa Adeje and its surrounding. Many vacationers are attracted to the island of Tenerife during the classic warm months. During this time, Tenerife is very crowded and you can not enjoy many beaches or even sights in peace. Therefore, look for a suitable week in autumn and get to know the island once again differently. In autumn the weather is perfect for hiking in the National Park El Teide or if you are lucky even for a beach holiday. For a special experience, you can visit the beach at the mountain of Montaña Roja, which is completely made of coal-black sand.
Tenerife offers a wide range of rental cars, which is why visitors can choose the one that suits them best. You can find a car hire service at Tenerife South Airport (TFS), about 20 kilometres east of Costa Adeje. Tourists can pick up their hired car right after landing and drive the short distance from the airport to their hotel. This option is especially recommended for travellers with more baggage and an individual schedule.
Those who want to use a hired car anyway during the whole holiday can save money and pick it up directly at the airport. A price comparison for both options should be made before the trip.
The beautiful and kilometre-long beaches are one of the visitor magnets of the region. They belong to the most beautiful beaches all over Tenerife. They are clean and well-kept and some of them are lined with palm trees. In the evening you can watch some breathtaking sunsets here. Pack a beach towel, parasol and swimsuit and drive to the nearest beach with your hired car.
