Tenerife Airport South Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Rent a car at Tenerife South Airport! The Canary Islands are all about the beach, so hop in your rental and start exploring! Las Vistas Beach in Los Cristianos has a reputation for great parties, Las Galletas is calmer and popular with the locals, and Los Gigantes is otherworldly, with its black sand and impressively huge cliffs, while El Médano Beach in El Médano is a kitesurfer’s paradise. You’ll find countless opportunities to scuba dive, jet-ski, and surf, or simply swim and soak up the sun.

Drive your rental to the village of Los Abrigos to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and see the colorful fishing boats. If you’re up for something more active, drive to El Teide, the highest mountain—hike to the top and you’ll be rewarded with amazing views. The Masca Valley cliffs are another terrific place to hike. Back in town, enjoy a typical Canarian meal of papas arrugadas (black potatoes with rock salt), potaje de berros (a spicy stew), and Conejo al Salmorejo (rabbit in a delicious sauce).

Tenerife’s a truly great destination, so why not extend your stay? With a longer term car rental deal, you can explore the island’s less touristy areas and get a feel for how the locals live. And if your car provider allows it, you can take your car on a ferry to another island. You can even pick up your rental at Tenerife South Airport and drop it off at a different location. Start planning your adventure today!

Tenerife Airport South is also known as Aeropuerto de Tenerife Sur and Tenerife South–Reina Sofia Airport.

If you are on five days or more in Tenerife, the best is to visit the southern part of the island Adeje, Los Cristianos, and Los Americanos. Don't forget to go to Los Gigantes. The northern side of the island is amazing too. Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Puerto De la Cruz are stunning as well. All Island around you can drive in around 3 hours. Highly recommended.
