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
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
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.
