4 Things To Do In Tenerife

tenerife

Tenerife is an island that is literally filled with things to do and what better place to do it than a place that has great year round weather. To me there really is no surprise that people are coming here at any time of the year to get some sun, so read on to find out a few of the reasons why Tenerife should be your next holiday destination.

Beaches

Tenerife is the ideal place to enjoy the beach, especially with its abundance of them and also the quality of the weather as I mentioned above. Playa del Duque is a great beach as it is very similar to the white sand beaches of the Caribbean, but this is just one of many that you can explore. If you run out of beaches Port Aventura has a waterpark the kids will love.

Cueva del Viento

Of course, when an island is formed by a volcano naturally it is going to have some unique landforms to explore. Cueva del Viento is one of these unique landforms, it is a large volcanic tube (the fourth largest in the world) that is about 18 kilometres in length. There are various levels that you can explore by taking a tour here and many geographic formations and fossil life to discover. Cueva del Viento is a world class experience and something very different than what you would normally do.

Teide National Park

This UNESCO World Heritage site is probably the most spectacular single sight on the island of Tenerife. It rises 3.7 kilometres above sea level and has a 16 kilometre wide volcanic crater, it also happens to be the highest peak in all of Spain and can be accessed by a cable car that goes to the top and offers stunning views of Tenerife and the surrounding islands. This park also boasts a diverse mix of flora and fauna.

Whale Watching

Whale watching is something that attracts many visitors to Tenerife, especially due to the variety of whale species that frequent the waters surrounding the Canary Islands and it is known as one of the top three destinations in the world for whale watching. Dolphins, sea turtles, rays and many other types of animals  are also able to be seen in Canarian waters, further adding to the allure of Tenerife.
