Where To Stay: Melia Haciebda del Conde
The Canary Islands are a well-known holiday hotspot off the coast of Western Africa. However, despite the location, the islands are Spanish yet each has its own distinctive charm.
Tenerife is arguably the most popular of the Canary Islands and it's easy to see why with the choice of beaches, accommodation, towns, villages, nightlife and not forgetting the volcano and stunning interior of the island.
However, the great year-round climate is not only good for visitors who just want to relax, but it also helps to produce some of the best golf courses in the world and definitely one not to miss when visiting Tenerife in Buenavista.
This may not be the easiest course to reach on the island but you are rewarded once you arrive, so it is worth the effort. The quickest and most efficient way of getting to the golf course is by the IP1 Motorway North all the way up and around the island and back down to the coast again, a journey lasting just over 50 minutes or so. Should you wish to take the scenic route via Santiago del Teide the scenery is spectacular and winds its way up along the coastline - a journey lasting around 90 minutes.
This beautiful championship golf course is one of the finest examples from the Severiano Ballesteros portfolio, with fantastic views from almost every hole. The golf course is located some 50 minutes away from Reina Sofia airport in the North West of the Island - if you are looking for championship golf in a quiet location then look no further.
