Although it might look like it from the outside, Tenerife is not just all inclusive hotels, beaches and cocktails. It’s actually booming with a plethora of adventure sport.
Here is our top 5 Tenerife adventures, which you probably didn’t know you could do on the island!
If Tenerife has some incredible biodiversity on land, but drop jump into the surrounding ocean and it gets a little more. The island is home to a range of marine life like Dolphins, Turtles and Bull rays.
With water temperature ranging from 19 to 24C, and low plankton levels, you can enjoy good visibility and warm dives. If you think it’s better down where it’s wetter, Tenerife is an ideal place for you and the many centres offer courses for both beginner and experienced divers.
Thanks to a large variety of winds across the islands, Tenerife has a long tradition of Kitesurfing with many beaches offering great opportunities for all levels. Long sandy beaches, blue skies and warm temperatures make the island a great spot for a day of gliding on the seas.
Although other islands in the Canaries, such as Lanzarote, tend to get a better reputation for surfing, Tenerife still produces some great waves. Playa de Las Americas is known for its reefs, coming alive with north westerly winds creating long, clean lefts such as “La Izequieta” or “Spanish left”.
The wave, created by a lava platform, when overhead is only for expert surfers however the islands also offers plenty of more mellow spots for beginners to learn such as El Conquistador, Derecha del Carte and El Charco offer 1-3ft swells.
Mount Teide Volcano
Sitting at 3718mters above the surf , Mount Teide is the highest volcano formation in the Canary Islands. According to local legends, the King of Evil lives inside the Teide, kidnapped the God of Light and Sun and took him inside the volcano. It was even named a Pillar of Heaven by the greek historian Herodotus in classical history.
Don’t worry, the King of Evil won’t be able to catch you if you’re on a quad bike! Mount Teide offers hiking, off road safaris, quad bike tours and even skiing! And lest we forget the undeniably breathtaking views of the Island from the summit.
