Travelling to Tenerife by Air.

Tenerife - South, or Reina Sofia, is the island´s modern international airport, and one of the busiest in the whole of Spain. The other island airport, Tenerife - North, is for inter-island flights, although there are also regular domestic and international flights, the latter have returned to this airport since 1998.

Aeropuerto Reina Sofía is the busiest Airport in Tenerife, ranking 7th in Spain. It typically serves the mass of regular and charter flights constantly arriving from the most of Europe.

Travelling to Tenerife by Sea.

As it is an island, the only other way to arrive on Tenerife is by ferry, either to Santa Cruz de Tenerife or Los Cristianos, near Playa de Las Américas.

A network consisting of two fast, toll-free motorways (TF1 and TF5) encircles nearly the entire island, linking all the main towns and resorts with the metropolitan area. The exception is in the west from Adeje to Icod de los Vinos, which is traversed by a smaller winding mountain road.

However, plans are now afoot to complete the autopista, which is causing heavy debate between the environmentalists and the local businessmen, though works are bound to start in early 2007. This, however, pales in comparison to the heated discussions concering the planned port in Granadilla, which is now in the hands of Brussels.
