What are the best things to do in Tenerife?
Go hiking in Tenerife’s natural wonder :
At the centre of Teide National Park lies the natural pride and joy of Tenerife: Teide Volcano. The highest peak in all of Spain’s territories, the volcano looks different from every angle – so make sure to catch them all! The park is especially popular with fans of the great outdoors, but the fascinating rock structures and caves will interest any non-specialist as shown by the millions of tourists who visit each year.
The rocks vary in shape, size and colour; some are lava tunnels and others look like moon rocks. This epicentre of natural wonder is accessible by car – and for those short of time even a speedy drive through the park will not be wasted – and those looking for a longer stay can hike around the park and up to the top of the peak of Mount Teide (with the assistance of a cable car).
Location: Teide National Park, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain
Open: Tuesday–Sunday from 9 am to 2 pm and from 3.30 pm to 6 pm
Spend some time on the black beaches in this small town:
Los Gigantes is a resort town on the western coast of the island, named after its remarkable 800-metre high cliffs which translate to ‘the Giants’ in English. The town is quieter than other resorts on the island while still offering a brilliant selection of beaches, restaurants and hotels.
Indeed, one of the best things to do in Tenerife is simply taking in the coastal beauty. The town has Tenerife’s distinctive black sand beaches (the colour due to the volcanoes on the island) such as Los Guíos, from which you can enjoy an unspoiled view of Los Gigantes while sunbathing and swimming. The town is also a hotspot for whale-watching tours.
Location: Los Gigantes, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain
Soak up the sun and watch the world go by :
Playa de Las Teresitas stands out in Tenerife for its lusciously golden sand, in contrast to Tenerife’s standard black sand beaches. The sand is imported from the Sahara and makes for a stunning addition to Tenerife’s many beaches.
Breakwaters have been built so that the imported white sand does not flow into the sea, but it also has the added advantage of calming the waters, which makes for excellent swimming conditions.
Location: Playa de las Teresitas, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain
Immerse yourself in the local culture
Garachico is a small town on the northern coast of Tenerife. The town’s wealth and prosperity was hit hard by a volcanic eruption in the early 18th century, which almost destroyed the entire town. Due to plenty of hard work best summarised by the motto ‘Glorious in Adversity,’ the town rebuilt and is now a charming community popular with tourists.
The townspeople have little to thank that particular 18th-century eruption for, but the one positive is the distinctive rock pools it left behind on the coast, which offer a more unusual swimming backdrop. The town is full of interesting religious buildings to visit but the highlight is the typically Spanish main square, the Plaza de la Libertad.
Location: Garachico, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain
Cool down from the summer heat at Tenerife’s best theme park
Siam Park is a Thai-themed water park popular with families. Children of all ages will have fun floating around on the mile-long lazy river in the park. The park also features a wave pool that is bordered by a long, artificial white sandy beach.
For thrill-seekers, Siam Park is also home to rapids rides and water slides that are sure to get your adrenaline pumping. The Tower of Power slide is an almost vertical drop that ends by going through a tank filled with sharks and other marine animals.
Location: Siam Park, Avenida Siam, 38660 Costa Adeje, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain
Open: Daily from 10 am to 6 pm
