Shopping In Tenerife

Whether you are looking for good Spanish wines, want to take home a memorable souvenier, or just take advantage of the low taxes, Tenerife has a lot to offer in the shopping stakes. Both in and out of the resorts, you will find a number of small minimarkets selling just about every food you might need, however for larger value stocks you might want to try one of the larger branded supermarkets, which can be found in or just outside every resort, look for Mercadona, Hipertrebol, and Hiperdino for good value spanish products.

Shopping In Tenerife

Look out for the local Commercial Centres (C.C) located in every resort, which house many local and international shops, selling clothes, jewellery, shoes etc. You will find a number of good wine shops around every resort, and if in doubt check out the larger supermarkets for a good choice and good value stocks. Strelitzia (bird of paradise) flowers are the locally grown all year round and can be delivered to most resorts in beautiful gift boxes to take home. Tenerife Pearl on the Los Gigantes road is always worth a visit, and regularly hold special offer days and events, from classical style designs in every type of pearl to funky costume jewellery there is always something to suit every budget.
Electrical items can be good value for money here in Tenerife due to the low tax rate, however there are a few owners that can be extremely persuasive, check all goods are the same as the box, have the guarantee and double check any Visa slips before leaving the shop. The Visanta chain of shops have a good reputation for selling honest goods.


If you fancy taking in the sights of the capital, why not include a trip through the fabulous streets of Santa Cruz. You will find many international shops as well as specialised boutiques, they have an African Market every week, and Spain’s most famous department store El Corte Ingles, who currently offer a 10% discount to all visiting tourists on purchases over 50e. To claim this discount, you must present a valid passport, non resident, over 18, and you can collect a card from the store which lasts for 1 day.
