33 Amazing Things Things to do on Tenerife

I have visted every corner of Tenerife over the last 20 years and in the article below you will find my absolute favourtie things to do.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

1. Take the cable car to the top of Mount Teide

I rode the cable car to the top of Mount Teide, and wow, what a view! This trip is a must for anyone visiting Tenerife. The ride up this tall volcano gives you amazing sights all around.

It’s not every day you get to stand on top of the highest point in all of Spain.

The journey starts at the base, where I hopped onto the cable car — or aerial tramway if we’re being fancy. As it moved up, I watched as the landscape changed right before my eyes.

From rocky terrains to some snow at the peak during winter months, it was like stepping into another world. And once at the top? The view took my breath away – literally and figuratively speaking because of both its beauty and high altitude!


2. Take a boat trip to the Los Gigantes Cliffs

The Los Gigantes Cliffs are something else. They shoot up from the ocean, tall and proud. Seeing them makes you feel small in a good way. I got on a boat to see these giants closer.

The water was clear, and sometimes you can spot dolphins swimming nearby.

Next up, discovering San Cristóbal de La Laguna will wrap you in its beauty.

Standing before the immense Los Gigantes Cliffs reminded me why nature’s marvels leave us speechless.

3. Visit San Cristóbal de La Laguna

After seeing the Los Gigantes Cliffs, I made my way to San Cristóbal de La Laguna. This place is a gem. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage site. That means it’s very special. The buildings are old but beautiful.

They tell stories of the past.

Walking through the streets, I felt like I was traveling back in time. Every corner has something to see – from old churches to colorful homes. And the people? So friendly! They love their city and share tales that make La Laguna come alive even more for me.

If you enjoy history or just pretty places, you’ll love it here too.

I love water parks, I’ve been to many all over the world and Siam Park is the best one I’ve ever been to.  100% hands down!

4. Siam Water Park

It’s a huge place with slides, a lazy river, and even a wave pool that feels like the ocean. They have rides for thrill-seekers and areas for folks who just want to chill.

My favorite ride is the Tower of Power – it’s super fast and ends with a slide through an aquarium full of colorful fish! The park also has beautiful views around every corner.

Siam Park keeps everyone happy because there’s something for all ages. Little kids can splash around in their own play area while adults enjoy some of the scarier slides or relax on the beach area they have inside the park.

Eating here is easy too; they’ve got plenty of spots to grab food without missing out on fun time. If you’re in Tenerife, this park is a must-visit for an unforgettable day packed with laughter and screams (the good kind).

5. Casa de Los Balcones

Casa de Los Balcones in La Orotava caught my eye on a sunny afternoon. This place is not just a house; it’s a dive into the past of Tenerife. Walking through its doors felt like stepping back in time to when Canarian architecture and crafts were at their peak.

The wooden balconies, exquisite courtyards, and traditional costumes showcased there tell stories of an era long gone.

Exploring Casa de Los Balcones offers a glimpse into the soul of Tenerife.

 I spent hours marveling at the craftsmanship displayed in every room. It was clear that these artisans took great pride in their work, creating pieces that have stood the test of time.

Each embroidered cloth and carved wooden beam spoke volumes about the island’s rich cultural heritage. Visiting this historic site wasn’t just educational; it was an experience that connected me to the history and people of Canary Islands in an unforgettable way.

6. The Monkey Park

I had a blast at the Monkey Park. It’s not every day you get to see so many primates up close. The park is home to lots of different types, from tiny marmosets to bigger lemurs and even some rare species I couldn’t pronounce.

Feeding them was the highlight for me. You can buy food for them right there, and seeing their little hands reach out was just adorable.

This place is great for families or anyone who loves animals. It’s peaceful walking around and watching the monkeys play in their habitats makes you forget about your phone for a while.

If you love nature and wildlife, this should be on your list.

Next up, prepare to spot some whales and dolphins in the wild – it’s an experience like no other!

7. Whale and dolphin watching.

Seeing whales and dolphins up close is something you can’t miss in Tenerife. The Canary Islands are a top spot for this kind of adventure because the water is full of life. I got on a boat that took us into the sea, where we could see these amazing animals in their natural habitat.

Sometimes, they come right up to the boat!

This experience made me feel so connected to nature. We saw different types of these large sea creatures, including the huge but gentle whales and playful dolphins jumping around. The guides told us lots about them, which made it even more special.

This trip is perfect if you love wildlife and want to see something truly incredible.

8. Puerto de la Cruz

After seeing the beautiful sea creatures, I drove to Puerto de la Cruz. This place is a hidden gem on the island. The city’s streets are full of life, with shops and cafes everywhere.

I walked around, enjoying the vibe. It felt like stepping into a postcard.

Puerto de la Cruz has something special, from its black sand beaches to historic buildings that tell stories of the past. I spent hours at Lago Martianez, an amazing water complex right by the sea.

It’s not just any pool; it’s art mixed with fun! Swimming there, with views of Mount Teide in the distance – wow!


The charm of Puerto de la Cruz captures your heart with every step.

9. Drago Milenario

I got the chance to see the Drago Milenario in Icod de los Vinos, and let me tell you, it’s quite a sight! This ancient dragon tree is said to be over a thousand years old. Yes, you read that right – it’s been around for centuries.

Standing under its massive branches gives a sense of stepping back in time. The town itself wraps around this living piece of history like a hug, making the whole experience feel like something out of a storybook.

Walking through Icod de los Vinos was delightful. The streets lead right up to the tree, so getting there felt like an adventure on its own. Each corner turned offered new views and charming spots to explore.

And once at the tree, I couldn’t help but just stand there and stare up in awe for what felt like ages. It wasn’t just about checking another item off my tourist list; it was truly inspiring to witness such endurance and majesty firsthand.

10. Teno Rural Park

Teno Rural Park is a place full of surprises. It sits in the northwest corner of Tenerife, away from the busy tourist spots. This park has it all: deep valleys, steep cliffs, and ancient forests that feel like something out of a fairy tale.

Walking here, I felt like an explorer discovering uncharted lands. The views are breathtaking, with lush greenery everywhere and the ocean sparkling in the distance.

One thing I love about this place is its trails. They wind through landscapes that change around every corner. You can find paths leading to small villages where time seems to stand still.

My favorite was hiking to Punta de Teno, where the lighthouse stands as a silent guardian over rough seas below. Here, nature’s beauty hits you full force – it’s raw and untouched by modern hustle.

Plus, spotting some wildlife along the way added an extra thrill to my adventure!

11. Swim in El Caletón

After enjoying the natural beauty of Teno Rural Park, it’s time to cool off. El Caletón offers a unique swimming experience. These aren’t your average pools; they’re formed by volcanic rock on the coast.

Imagine diving into clear, refreshing water that’s been naturally shaped over centuries.

El Caletón and places like it get created when lava meets the ocean, cooling down fast and forming shapes perfect for pools. Swimming here feels like discovering a secret only nature knows about.

It’s where you can float with fish below and sun above.

Nature is not just out there, but also right here, inviting us for a swim.
In these pools, water from the sea gets in but feels warmer and calmer than swimming in the open sea. They are Mother Nature’s own versions of a water park – no slides needed here, just pure joy of splashing around!

12. Cueva del Viento

I went to see the Cueva del Viento and it was amazing. This place is not just any cave; it’s one of the largest volcanic tubes in the world. Walking inside, I felt like an explorer discovering a new land.

The tunnel formed by lava flows from Pico Viejo next to Mount Teide shows how powerful nature can be. Guides told us stories about the cave’s history and how it got its name, which means “Cave of the Wind.” They also pointed out unique rock formations and even some bats living there.

The trip involves wearing helmets and carrying lights, but it’s worth it. You get to walk through different passages where lava once flowed millions of years ago. It’s cool, literally – the temperature drops inside so bring a jacket.

If you love adventure or just want to see something truly different, this place is for you. You learn a lot about Tenerife’s volcanic landscape while having fun exploring underground wonders.

13. Barranco del Infierno

o, there I was, staring at the entrance to Barranco del Infierno. People had told me it’s a must-see, and wow, were they right. This hike isn’t just a walk; it’s an adventure through what feels like a secret passage in Tenerife.

The path winds through stunning gorges and beside trickling streams. It’s called the “Hell’s Ravine,” but it felt more like paradise to me.

The terrain is rough at times, making me glad for my sturdy shoes. Birds chirped above as I made my way under the lush canopy of trees that seemed to touch the sky. Around every bend was a new breathtaking view—I couldn’t stop taking pictures! And then there’s this grand finale – an incredible waterfall that seems too perfect to be real.

Next up? Starry skies await as we look into enjoying stargazing here in Tenerife.

14. Stargazing

I love looking up at the sky at night. The stars seem to tell stories that have been around for ages. Mount Teide National Park is one of those special places where you can see these tales unfold in the vastness above.

It’s not every day you get a view like this, free from the city lights and noise. Here, it’s just you, the cool air, and a sky full of stars.

Bringing a telescope ups the game. You might catch glimpses of distant planets or constellations that have guided explorers on their journeys across oceans. And if you’re lucky, shooting stars might flash across your field of vision, making for perfect wish-making moments.

After wrapping up here, I’m heading over to Costa Adeje & Los Cristianos next!

15. Costa Adeje & Los Cristianos

Costa Adeje and Los Cristianos are my go-to spots for fun under the sun in Tenerife. These towns buzz with energy day and night. They’re packed with shops, eateries, and beaches like Playa de las Americas where I love to lounge by the sea or grab a bite.

The vibe here is contagious, making it hard not to smile as you explore.

On one visit, I tried paddleboarding at Playa del Duque and ended up spending hours on the water. It was a blast! As evening falls, these places don’t slow down. Bars and clubs come alive with music that makes you want to dance till morning.

Next up? I’m thinking of catching some waves at El Médano beach.

16. Surfing at El Medano

I hit the beach at El Médano, and wow, was I in for a treat. This place is famous for its strong breezes and big waves that make it perfect for surfing. The sand stretches forever, it feels like, giving me plenty of room to find just the right spot.

And there’s something here for everyone – whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been riding waves for years.

Surfing is not just a sport; it’s a way to embrace the power of nature.

My first time standing on a board here wasn’t exactly graceful. But with locals and other surfers cheering me on, I caught my first real wave and rode it all the way in. The feeling? Pure joy mixed with a dash of saltwater in my face.

Afterward, chilling on the beach felt well-earned as I watched pros make those giant waves look easy.

17. Candelaria

So, I made my way to Candelaria, and let me tell you, it’s a hidden gem that deserves more attention. This town is not just any spot on the map; it’s where history and culture come to life right before your eyes.

Picture walking through streets lined with colorful houses that lead to a stunning basilica. That’s the Basilica of Candelaria we’re talking about here! It stands tall by the sea, watching over the town like a guardian.

And oh, don’t get me started on the statues of Guanches right by the basilica – these figures represent Tenerife’s original inhabitants and add a touch of mystery to your visit. Walking around this place felt like stepping back in time while still having my feet planted in today’s world.

Plus, grabbing some local treats from nearby shops was an experience in itself—each bite was a taste of Canary Island culinary magic.

18. Costa Adeje & Los Cristianos

Costa Adeje and Los Cristianos are my go-to spots for fun under the sun in Tenerife. These towns buzz with energy day and night. They’re packed with shops, eateries, and beaches like Playa de las Americas where I love to lounge by the sea or grab a bite.

The vibe here is contagious, making it hard not to smile as you explore.

Next up? I’m thinking of catching some waves at El Médano beach.

19. The Masca Valley

I got to see Masca Valley, and wow, it blew my mind. This place is tucked away in the mountains of Tenerife, Spain. It’s like stepping into another world. The views are out of this world with deep ravines and lush greenery everywhere you look.

Going down those winding roads felt like an adventure all on its own. I heard that hikers love this spot because the trails lead you through some breathtaking scenes of nature.

As I wandered around, I noticed the small village in the valley. It seemed stuck in time, with old houses that tell tales of centuries past. Locals were friendly, offering smiles and showing off their quaint town proudly.

And let me tell you about the air – it’s so fresh up here! For anyone visiting Tenerife wanting a break from beaches and looking for something different, Masca Valley should be on your list.

Between hiking along scenic paths to soaking up history in the village – it’s a slice of paradise hidden away from Tenerife’s more traveled paths.

20. Loro Parque

Loro Parque is a must-see on Tenerife. It’s known for its zoos and shows with animals. Here, you get to see all sorts of creatures – from parrots and dolphins to orcas and penguins.

It’s like a big party where animals are the stars. The park does a great job taking care of them too.

They also have this cool thing called whale watching that you can’t miss. Trust me, seeing these giants up close is something else! Plus, there are loads of fun things for families to do together.

You can spend the whole day here and not get bored. So, if you’re looking for an adventure with wildlife, Loro Parque should be on your list!

21. San Cristóbal de la Laguna

I got to visit San Cristóbal de la Laguna and wow, it was a trip back in time! This town isn’t just any old place; it’s a UNESCO World Heritage site. That means it’s super important and protected because of its history and beauty.

Walking through the streets felt like being in a different era. The buildings have this unique style that makes you stop and look.

The vibe here is chill but also full of life. People are friendly, and there are lots of cool spots to grab a bite or take photos. I learned that this place used to be the island’s capital, which explains why everything looks so grand.

Next up on my adventure list was checking out Garachico — trust me, you’re going to want to hear about this place too!

22. Garachico

Leaving the old streets of San Cristóbal de la Laguna behind, my journey takes me next to Garachico. This place has its own story — once destroyed by a volcano long ago, it now stands as a beacon of beauty and resilience.

Walking through Garachico feels like stepping back in time, with cobblestone streets and historic buildings that have seen centuries pass. One thing you can’t miss here are the natural swimming pools formed by volcanic lava.

They’re not your typical beach spot but offer an unforgettable swim against a backdrop of stunning ocean views. Plus, visiting Castillo de San Miguel gives you a taste of history mixed with breathtaking scenery.

Trust me, walking around this town makes for an afternoon well spent, blending culture with nature’s unexpected gifts.

23. Lago Martinez

Moving on from the historical charm of Garachico, I found myself at Lago Martinez, a place that’s all about fun under the sun. This isn’t just any ordinary trip to the beach—it’s an adventure in Santa Cruz de Tenerife that promises cool swims and stunning views.

Picture huge swimming pools filled with sea water, surrounded by lush plants and spots to lay back and soak in the vibe.

I spent my day hopping between pools, trying not to miss any—the big ones for swimming laps and smaller ones perfect for lounging around. What caught my eye was how each pool seemed like its own little world, complete with palm trees swaying gently as if they were grooving to the sound of waves crashing nearby.

And let me tell you about those waves! From certain points around Lago Martinez, you get this incredible view of the ocean stretching out towards infinity. It felt like standing at the edge of the world—completely mesmerizing.

24. Auditorio Tenerife

Oh, the Auditorio de Tenerife! It’s this amazing building that looks like a big wave in the middle of Santa Cruz. The first time I saw it, I couldn’t stop staring. It’s all sleek and modern, standing out against the sea behind it.

Going to a concert there is something else. The sound inside? Perfect. They say its design helps with that.

I went to see a show there one evening. Walking into the place felt like stepping into another world—so cool and airy. The view from outside at sunset is unforgettable; make sure you get some pictures of that! Inside, I found my seat easily and settled in for an evening of awesome music.

Trust me, whether you’re into classical music or more modern vibes, checking out what’s on at the Auditorio de Tenerife while you’re here is a must-do.

25. La Orotava

La Orotava caught my eye with its amazing views and rich history. This town sits in a valley below Mount Teide, making for some stunning backdrops. Walking through the streets, I saw beautiful old houses with intricate balconies and gardens that seemed like something out of a fairy tale.

The town is full of historic buildings, including some impressive churches that date back hundreds of years.

I also visited Jardines del Marquesado de la Quinta Roja – trust me, this place is a hidden gem! The gardens are lush and well-kept, offering a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle.

It’s easy to spend hours here just soaking up nature’s beauty. And don’t even get me started on the local food; it’s delicious! Trying the local dishes in one of La Orotava’s quaint restaurants made my visit even more memorable.

26. The beaches of Las Americas

I love hitting the beaches in Las Americas for sun, sea, and sand. They’re perfect spots to relax or play all day. Here, you can try out surfing or just chill with a book by the water.

The vibes are amazing with lots of places nearby to eat or grab a drink. And if you’re into snorkeling, you’ll find some cool spots around.

Next up is Aqualand, where the fun keeps rolling with slides and pools galore..

27. Aqualand Waterpark

After soaking up the sun on the beaches of Las Americas, I decided to switch gears and head to Aqualand. This place is a blast for everyone who loves water parks. It’s packed with slides – some fast enough to make your heart race, and others are perfect for just chilling as you float along.

My favorite was the wave pool. It felt like being in the ocean but without having to worry about getting saltwater in your mouth. And let me tell you, trying out each slide was an adventure on its own.

Some were downright thrilling, making me scream at the top of my lungs! But it wasn’t all screams; there were plenty of laughs too, especially when we tried to see who could stay on their raft the longest without flipping over.

Trust me, if you’re looking for fun times and cool splashes, Aqualand’s got you covered.

28. Jungle Park

After splashing around in Aqualand, I decided to switch gears and head to Jungle Park. This place is a lush escape filled with exotic birds and animals. I walked through this park, feeling like an explorer discovering hidden treasures.

The paths are surrounded by thick greenery, making every turn a surprise.

I saw colorful parrots up close and even watched as eagles soared above me during one of the shows. Walking through the jungle-like environment made me forget I was on Tenerife; it felt more like being in the heart of Africa or South America.

The big cats were majestic, lounging or pacing in their habitats, giving everyone a thrill just by being so close to such powerful creatures.

29. Day trip to La Gomera

So, I took a day trip to La Gomera and wow, what an adventure. This place is like stepping into a different world. We caught a ferry from Tenerife; the ride itself was cool with lots of sea views to enjoy.

Once we landed, it was all about exploring. La Gomera has this amazing national park called Garajonay. It’s full of green forests that seem to touch the sky.

Driving around, we saw tiny villages tucked away in mountains. The twists and turns on the roads offered breathtaking views at every corner. Oh, and for lunch, we stopped at this small place that had the most delicious local dishes; you’ve got to try the almogrote! Ending the day watching the sunset from one of La Gomera’s beaches was just perfect—peaceful waves and golden skies as far as you could see.

30. Punta de Teno

I went to Punta de Teno and wow, it’s a hidden spot at the edge of Tenerife. This place has wild beauty like no other. The cliffs meet the ocean, and the views are stunning. You can see La Gomera on a clear day.

I took tons of pictures.

Getting there is an adventure on its own because the road is narrow, but it’s worth every bit. Just remember to check if it’s open since sometimes they close it for safety reasons.

I also walked around, found some spots for quiet moments, and watched the waves crash against rocks. It felt like I had discovered my secret corner of the island.

31. Botanical Gardens (Jardin Botanico)

After soaking up the breathtaking views at Punta de Teno, a visit to the Botanical Gardens (Jardin Botanico) was next on my list. This place is like walking into a living book of plant life.

It’s filled with greenery from all around the world – a true celebration of nature’s diversity. Walking through it, I felt like an explorer discovering new species.

The air here smells amazing, fresh and full of life. As I wandered down its paths, butterflies danced around me and birds sang from hidden spots among the trees and flowers. It wasn’t just a feast for the eyes but also a treat for my senses.

The plants weren’t labeled with complicated names or details; instead, each had simple signs telling visitors about their origins and interesting facts. This made it easy to learn something new without feeling overwhelmed by scientific jargon.

This garden isn’t only about looking at plants; it tells stories too – about where these species come from and how they got to Tenerife. For someone who loves both nature and history, this was fascinating!

32. Mercado Municipal Nuestra Senora de Africa

I love visiting markets, and the Mercado Municipal Nuestra Senora de Africa in Santa Cruz is a true gem. It’s like stepping into a world of color, smells, and sounds that you won’t find anywhere else.

The stalls here overflow with fresh fruits, veggies, spices, and more goodies than I could ever list. You’ll see local farmers selling their harvests next to butchers with all kinds of meats.

And don’t get me started on the fish section – it’s a feast for the eyes!

Walking around this market makes me feel so connected to Tenerife’s culture. I always end up chatting with vendors who share stories about their products or give tips on how best to enjoy them.

Plus, grabbing a snack from one of the food outlets is a must – they serve some amazing local dishes! Next up? Time to check out Siam Mall for some shopping.

33. Siam Mall

So, I visited Siam Mall and wow, what a place! Shops, food courts, and even play areas – they’ve got it all. This isn’t just any shopping center; it’s like stepping into a different world.

You can find everything from the latest fashion trends to tech gadgets. And when hunger strikes? Choices galore! From fast food joints for quick bites to sit-down restaurants offering delicious meals.

Walking around the mall is an adventure on its own. Every corner has something new to see or do. I stumbled upon this cool spot where kids were having the time of their lives in a safe play area while parents shopped nearby.

Smart move! Also, catching a glimpse of Tenerife’s beautiful landscapes through the mall’s big windows was pretty neat – shopping with a view, right? Definitely adding Siam Mall to my “must-visit again” list next time I’m in Tenerife.

What is Your Favourite Canary Island?


Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria, oh what a place! It’s like Tenerife’s sibling but with its own unique charm. I found myself exploring stunning beaches that seemed to stretch on forever. The dunes of Maspalomas felt like stepping onto another planet, with golden sands as far as the eye could see.

Culture vultures, listen up! The capital city, Las Palmas, is a treasure trove brimming with history and life. From the cobbled streets of Vegueta to the buzz around Playa de Las Canteras, every corner has a story.  Trust me; Gran Canaria is not just another stopover – it’s an adventure all by itself.


Tenerife lights up the night with its buzzing bars, clubs, and eateries. It’s a place where music echoes into the early hours, making every evening an adventure. For those after something a bit calmer, there are beautiful beaches to relax on and stunning landscapes that look like they’re straight out of a painting.

During the day, Tenerife doesn’t slow down. You can explore Teide National Park or splash around in Siam Park. Want more? How about boat trips that let you spy on dolphins or scuba diving to meet underwater creatures? And if you visit during Christmas or New Year’s, get ready for extra fun with special shows and activities that bring everyone together.


So, I’ve got to tell you about Fuerteventura. This place is a treasure on its own, famed for its unique architecture that’s caught the eye of UNESCO. Imagine wandering through streets lined with buildings that tell stories from ages past—pretty cool, right? It’s like stepping into a different era where every corner and cobblestone has something new to whisper to you.

And here’s a little secret between us; it’s not just about the buildings. The vibe of this island is something else. You’re walking where history left its mark, surrounded by landscapes that seem almost too beautiful to be real. Trust me, your Instagram won’t know what hit it! So why not add Fuerteventura to your travel list? Maybe we’ll bump into each other there.


After exploring Fuerteventura, I couldn’t wait to see what Lanzarote had in store. Guess what? This island blew my mind with its unique architecture – thanks, UNESCO! Lanzarote’s soil isn’t just any dirt; it’s volcanic magic that makes wine taste heavenly.

Now, hiking is not always my thing but the trails here? Absolutely worth every step for the views alone.

Whale-watching turned out to be an unexpected highlight of my trip. Different seasons bring different whales closer to Lanzarote’s shores. Picture me on a boat, eyes wide open, spotting these majestic creatures in their natural habitat – unforgettable! So yeah, saying goodbye to this island wasn’t easy at all.

La Graciosa

I’ve got to tell you about La Graciosa, a little gem just north of Lanzarote. This place is part of the Chinijo Archipelago and it’s nothing short of magical with its stunning beaches, clear waters, and unique volcanic landscapes.

Getting there is easy peasy – a quick ferry ride from Lanzarote.

Now, if you’re like me and love finding spots where you can just relax without bumping into too many people, La Graciosa is your go-to island. It offers this tranquil vibe that’s hard to find these days. Imagine walking on soft sands or swimming in crystal-clear water without the usual crowd. Plus, exploring those volcanic landscapes makes you feel like an adventurer discovering uncharted territories! 

La Gomera

After soaking up the charms of La Graciosa, it’s time to whisk ourselves over to another gem in the Canaries – La Gomera. This island is a paradise for those who love nature and adventure.

Its unique landscapes and ancient forests almost make you feel like you’ve stepped into another world. The Garajonay National Park, with its misty paths and lush greenery, whispers secrets of an olden age.

Exploring this mystical island reveals more than just stunning views; it offers a deep dive into a culture preserved through centuries. From the enchanting whistled language known as “El Silbo” to quaint villages that dot the landscape, every corner tells a story.

The local food will delight your taste buds too – fresh fish and palm honey are must-tries here. Trust me, La Gomera isn’t just a place you visit; it’s an experience that stays with you long after you’ve left its shores.

La Palma

Moving on from the lush La Gomera, we jump over to La Palma. This is another gem in the Canary Islands you can’t miss. I found that hopping on a ferry or catching a short flight from Tenerife gets you there quite easily.

Once there, the choices for where to stay are plenty – hotels, resorts, cosy holiday rentals, and guesthouses all ready to welcome you.

La Palma blew me away with its local food scene – think fresh seafood and unique dishes that have their own story. It’s not just about eating; it’s an experience! And if you’re like me, loving nature and animals, this island has got you covered.

There are spots where you can marvel at diverse plants and creatures all day long. Plus, I soaked up some culture by checking out historic sites and museums – each telling tales of La Palma’s rich past. So yes, adding La Palma to your Tenerife trip? Absolutely worth it 

El Hiero

So, after soaking up the magic of La Palma, it’s time to talk about El Hierro. This little gem in the Canary Islands is a haven for those who love peace and untouched nature. You can hop on a ferry from Tenerife to get here.

It feels like stepping into another world—a place that moves at its own slow pace.

El Hierro is big on keeping things green and clean. They’re all about renewable energy and keeping their island beautiful and healthy. If you’re someone who loves exploring nature without crowds, this is your spot.

Imagine walking through forests and along coastlines where it’s just you, the birds, and maybe a few curious lizards. The air here smells like freedom—with a hint of salt from the sea.

And let’s not forget the adventures waiting for you under water; diving here feels like discovering a secret world full of colour.
