Things to do in Tenerife

Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, is a highly sought-after holiday destination year-round. Apart from the pleasant weather and sandy beaches, its diverse landscapes are a standout feature. From majestic volcanic landscapes to lush forests and imposing cliffs, not to mention picturesque colonial villages steeped in history, Tenerife has something for everyone.

The top six activities and excursions in Tenerife:

1. Splash around at Siam Park

Siam Park, hailed as one of the world's best water parks, is a major attraction in the Canary Islands. This Thai-themed water park offers a wide variety of attractions suitable for all ages. For thrill seekers, Tower of Power and Singha are a must. Looking for a more chilled plan? Jump into a float and navigate the Mai Thai River or soak up the rays at Siam Beach. There's something for everyone here.

2. Explore Teide National Park

A trip to Tenerife is incomplete without visiting Teide National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2007. Home to Mount Teide, Spain's highest peak at 3718 meters, and one of the tallest volcanoes globally, the park boasts incredible landscapes reminiscent of another planet. Think cones, lava flows, and intriguing caves. The Roques de García's peculiar rock formations and rich plant life, including the red bugloss and Teide violet, are just a few of the surprises awaiting you.

3. Visit Teno and Masca

The rural park of Teno, with its diverse landscapes like laurel forests and steep ravines, is one of Tenerife's most iconic natural spaces. Among the popular villages is Masca, a unique settlement nestled among green cliffs. Besides offering spectacular views of the surrounding ravines, it also preserves fantastic examples of traditional Canarian architecture.

4. Take a trip to La Gomera

The island of La Gomera, just a short ferry ride from Tenerife, is a must-visit. Be sure to explore Garajonay National Park, also declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Most excursions include a stop in San Sebastián, the island's capital, where Christopher Columbus made a stop before heading to the New World. You might even get to hear the Gomeran language, a unique form of communication used by the locals.

5. Discover the beauty of its villages

Beyond natural landscapes, visitors to Tenerife are captivated by the charm of iconic towns like San Cristóbal de La Laguna. The picturesque pastel-colored mansions in this colonial city are truly enchanting. Another must-see is Garachico, the town that rose from the ashes after the eruption of the Trevejo volcano in 1706. And then there's Icod de los Vinos, home to the famous, 800-year-old Drago Milenario – a symbol of the Canary Islands.

6. Enjoy a cruise or boat trip

Catamaran excursions and boat rides are fantastic ways to explore Tenerife's coastline, with various options available depending on your preferences. If you dream of spotting dolphins and whales in their natural habitat, the southwest coast is the perfect place to do so. For a more relaxed plan, opt for a boat excursion to enjoy a day of sunbathing and refreshing dips in the Atlantic Ocean.

Plan your visit to Tenerife

When’s the best time to visit Tenerife?

Tenerife is one of the sunniest destinations in Europe and enjoys a pleasant climate all year round, with temperatures ranging from 17 °C in winter to 25 °C in summer. So whether you want to do outdoor activities, enjoy nature or relax on the beach, any time of year is a good time to go on vacation in this Canary Island paradise. But remember that on the island there are a great variety of microclimates, and on the north coast the probability of rain is higher. One of the most memorable times to travel to Tenerife is during carnival, as the celebrations in Santa Cruz de Tenerife are really impressive.

How many days should you spend in Tenerife?

Tenerife is the largest island in the Canary archipelago and has an incredible diversity of tourist attractions. If you want to discover the stunning natural landscapes, explore the Teide National Park, visit the most alluring villages and sunbathe on the beach, ideally you would need to spend at least five days, although if you have more time, we advise you to stay at least a week or, even better, 10 days.

What are the best beaches in Tenerife?

Located very close to Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the beach of Las Teresitas is one of the most popular on the island. It has all kinds of facilities, and its blonde sand and limpid waters are highly appreciated by both locals and tourists. For those who prefer a wilder option, the beach of Benijo, hidden among the mountains of the Anaga massif, is really beautiful and also offers incredible sunsets. The impressive volcanic rock formations of El Bollullo beach, located near Puerto de la Cruz, and La Tejita beach, located next to the Montaña Roja Special Nature Reserve, are also worth a visit.
