Tenerife Attractions Tenerife Island

Tenerife attractions: Here comes the sun, 3 social media rock stars, an island, and I say it’s alright – what would the Beatles think of this little text change? We think it’s great. With these words, or at least almost, we were greeted at the reception of the Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife with a purple Prosecco. What a great way to start our first Influencer trip on the beautiful island of Tenerife.

But let’s play the record back first. On 3 December 2017, we started, which means Zoë, Nastassja, Kevin, a camera crew and me, at 6 a.m. with the plane in the warm south. The destination: Tenerife attractions, the largest of the Canary Islands. With the volcanic lunar landscape, the unique flora and fauna and the various dream beaches, the island offers through its diversity, the perfect location for our first trip. From the adrenaline junkie to the dream dancer, to the sunbather, the island has something for everyone.

On Tenerife, the vegetation and climate strike. The island could not be more diverse with an area of ​​2034,38 square kilometers. We were on the south side of the island, which is characterized in contrast to the green north tourist. With the bathing suit ready, we went directly after the check-in on the way to the Tenerife playa de las americas. Projects: surfing, sniffing the sea air and enjoying the sunshine.

What To Do In Tenerife

During the short time on the Tenerife attractions, we planned 2 big trips. On the agenda were a boat trip on the sea and a jeep safari ashore.

On Monday morning at 9 o’clock, two jeeps were waiting in front of the hotel for our first planned adventure. By jeep, we wanted to go up to the highest mountain in Spain. Destination: Nationalpark El Teide. The landscape is amazingly unique. The ride led to the Pico del Teide, through pine forests and volcanic landscapes, past huge cloud cover. Tenerife was wildly romantic before our eyes, partly shrouded in layers of fog. I just enjoyed this ride, let the fresh wind blow around my nose and focused on the varied landscape. The adventure lasted a whole day with a short lunch stop.

On the way back we drove to the small pirate village Masca. The village of about 80 houses and 100 inhabitants is located in the rugged Teno Mountains in a volcanic crater in the northwest of the island and should be noted as activity absolutely on the travel agenda. From here there are also numerous hiking tours down the Masca Gorge down to the sea. The hike, however, takes a total of around 8 hours, which is why we could not master the tour this time due to time constraints.

Our recommendation for the Jeep Safari: A light jacket and sturdy shoes should be carried in your luggage. So high above the clouds, it can be a bit cooler.

The boat trip was an exciting experience. On Tuesday, our little odyssey started on the Neptuno. Tenerife attractions is known for its perfect climate, warm waters and diverse food conditions as a whale playground in Europe and around the world. Whales can be observed almost all year round – of course, we will not miss this opportunity and so we started our trip in good weather conditions.

Playa las Teresitas The Teresitas beach in Tenerife lies behind the island’s capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Tenerife. It has Caribbean flair, because it was heaped up with white Sahara sand and the beach goes very flat into the sea. Protected by a long pier, even the Atlantic is relatively calm here, which also makes it ideal for families. If you don’t have a rental car, you can also get to the beach wonderfully by bus. From the large bus station in Santa Cruz, the green bus with number 910 runs the only bus company on the island: Titsa, every 10 minutes behind to the beach.

Well, on the sea that looked a bit different from the good weather. Despite the pleasant temperatures of over 25 ° C, the prevailing wind from the Sahara, Calima, left its mark. The waves were strong and not every sailor on board was waterproof. The wind lashed the waves to the boat. The bow plunged into the waves and stuck out of the water at the other end. For December, rather untypical weather. Fortunately, a few whales appeared in front of us. Two pilot whales to be exact. And despite the strong waves, we were rewarded with a wonderful experience.

We did not make it to Los Gigantes on this day and so due to the strong waves we were denied a view of the monumental cliffs of about 50 meters from the sea. But that is not so bad, because landlubbers come in the pleasure of this imposing view. The cliffs can be admired from the viewpoint Archipenque, located above the cliff, from the countryside. However, we have saved this natural wonder for lack of time for the next visit to the island.
