In the mountains; Among nature; On an island
Icod de los Vinos is located on the west coast of Tenerife. Tenerife is a part of the Canary Islands and has volcanic origins, which means that the beaches are mainly composed of black lava sand. The largest island is the volcano El Teide with a height of 3718 meters. Icod de los Vinos is characterized by steep cliffs and expansive levels, with nearly 10 km of coastal area. The northern part of the island is a very green area, especially the Valle de la Orotave with banana plantations and a single flora. One tree- the dragon's blood tree- is found nowhere else in the world. This tree may be thousands of years old. Beautiful places on the island include: the port of San Marcos; the Cueva del Viento, the longest cave in the world; and the capital of the island, Santa Cruz.
