The TF-1 (or Autopista del Sur, "Southern Highway") is a superhighway encircling the eastern and the southern parts of the island of Tenerife (Canary Islands). The TF-1 motorway runs from the capital Santa Cruz in the north to Adeje with its major tourist resorts Los Cristianos and Playa de las Américas in the south of the island. It is a 78 km superhighway and interchange numbers go facing south. The superhighway is one in the Canary Islands that passes through most of the municipalities and is the longest in the archipelago as well.



The superhighway begins with the junction with the northern motorway TF-5 and the short TF-4 near the Canary Islands' only refinery and is 1 km south from downtown Santa Cruz. The TF-1 follows the coastline to the TFS Reina Sofia southern airport, and ends in Adeje a few km before Playa Paraiso.


The motorway TF-1 connected Santa Cruz de Tenerife to Candelaria first in the mid 1970s. In 1978 a very important extension to the new southern airport supported the creation of new villages on the south-east coast, like the small holiday resort of Abades and prepared the field for a phenomenal touristic expansion starting from Los Cristianos and extending to Las Americas. The famous town of Güímar was connected the same year. In the 1990s the TF-1 extended to Arona and later to Adeje to meet up with an increasing demand. The superhighway runs from El Rosario to San Miguel de Abona over the mountain landscape and serves mountain interchanges. The superhighway TF-1 ends in a circle southwest of Adeje since 2001, the part between Candelaria and Santa Cruz de Tenerife has been enlarged on 3 ways in 2008.


The TF-1 is presently being extended from the Los Menores, Adeje towards Los Gigantes. Apparently the exact route is not published online[1] but you can see construction work along the route.
