5 Most Enjoyable Things to Do In Tenerife

Decide what to do in Tenerife and also choose holiday homes in Tenerife, the largest and nicest island in the Canary Islands (Spain), before you travel.

Tenerife offers a wide range of activities from the beach to the mountains. Whatever your travel style, you'll always find a suitable activity.

But before I tell you where to go in Tenerife, I suggest you rent a car. We saw numerous scenic viewpoints and natural areas worth a brief visit. So, why not visit the island by car?

1. Mount Teide Volcano, Tenerife's Best Sight

Teide National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Natura 2000 site.

With a 3,718-meter summit, it's no surprise that seeing the Teide volcano is one of the top things to do in Spain. Species like the Echium Wildpretii (Tajinaste), which blooms in the spring, and the Teide violet, which blooms exclusively above 2,500 meters altitude.

The cable car leaves you 200 meters below the highest point of Mount Teide. To get to the top, you have to walk, Seeing the rest of the Canary Islands from above is without a doubt the finest thing to do in Tenerife. To go to the summit, you need a permit, which you can receive when you reserve the cable car. Other excursions to Mount Teide may also involve a permit.

We took the cable car down but walked up through Monta Blanca (Trail 7). It is an 8 km trek with a 1,200 m rise. We climbed it in 4 hours and spent the night at the Altavista Refuge, so we didn't require a permit. If you prefer to hike this route with a guide, I recommend this private guided hiking excursion.

2. Santa Cruz De Tenerife, Tenerife's Best Sight

Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the island's capital since 1833, is also its largest city. Walking through its historic center's narrow streets will reveal the city's unique charm.

The Market of Our Lady of Africa, the Adan Martin theater, and the largest collection of palm palms in Europe are among the top things to do in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. If you visit during Carnival (typically around the end of February), don't miss this International Tourist Festival. If you have time, I recommend taking this tour to discover some of the city's hidden gems.

You may also admire the city's neoclassical architecture and the castles and towers designed to protect it from pirates. Visiting this amazing city is one of the top things to do in Tenerife North.

Take advantage of your time in Santa Cruz de Tenerife to shop and eat. It's a great place to stay in Tenerife.

3. Los Gigantes Cliffs, Tenerife's Best Place To Go

The Gigantes Cliffs are magnificent. A volcanic rock generated the Guanches holy cliffs, which rise to 600 meters. You may enjoy them by hiking, boating, or kayaking. Following our Masca route, we went by boat to see them.

In the Teno Rural Park, Los Gigantes complement the stunning sceneries. From here, one may approach Los Gigantes along a sandy beach.

Due to its shallow depth, Los Gigantes is a favorite diving and fishing spot. Among the nicest things to do in Tenerife is to go dolphin and whale watching.

4. Tenerife's Puerto De La Cruz

Tenerife's Puerto de la Cruz is a charming town. This city is known for its attractive old town and amazing graffiti.

While the city's nautical heritage has stayed intact, it is now complemented by more contemporary characteristics. In Puerto de la Cruz, old and new coexist.

Visit the San Felipe Castle, the Puerto de la Cruz Pier, the Botanical Garden, the La Paz Overlook, and the Jardin Beach at Puerto de la Cruz. You must see the Plaza del Charco.

Go surfing at Martiánez Beach with other surfers.

5. Benijo, A Tenerife Beach (Spain)

Benijo beach is volcanic in origin and its sand is dark. The view of the Roques de Anaga is spectacular from there, so it is worth the drive. It's also an excellent area to visit for landscape photographers. It's easy to see why this is one of Tenerife's greatest and most popular beaches.

This beach features a nudist section for those seeking more natural tourism. It is also bordered by Pista el Draguillo, a woodland path that runs parallel to the shore and offers stunning views.

A hearty plate of authentic Canarian food is a great way to end your trip. Those are my top Tenerife activities.
