If tenerife is part of spain, governed by them, use the euro why is there a difference with the amount of tax paid goods you can bring back to the U.K?

Tenerife is outside the EC customs territory and as a result the customs allowances for outside the EU apply.

Bit like the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands in terms of tax status.

Madeira has a similar "arms-length" relationship with Portugal.

Please don't ask me to any more precise - I'm not a lawyer.
