The Tenerife Tourism Corporation is gearing up to promote the island’s medical, health & wellness tourism offering.
Visitors to Tenerife will benefit from a range of top quality medical, surgical and wellbeing treatments at very competitive prices, due to the island’s tax incentives, while also enjoying the island’s attractive landscapes and all-year-round spring-like temperatures.
A new brand, Tenerife Medical Destination, which has been designed to provide visitors to the island with access to trusted healthcare professionals and medical facilities such as hospitals, spas and hotels, taps into the increase in demand for health tourism in Tenerife.

In order to meet this demand, Tenerife Tourism Corporation has launched the new Tenerife Medical Destination brand to offer visitors advice and help in finding top-quality services across the island.
Treatments available on the island range from therapeutic recreation and rehabilitation, dentistry and cosmetic surgery to aesthetic or cardiovascular treatments. Wellness treatments are also available which include yoga and meditation as well as beauty treatments.
