Teide National Park (Teleférico del Teide)

Unesco World Heritage site comprising a 10-mile-wide volcanic crater which dominates the centre of the island.

Siam Park

A Thai-themed aquatic playground of water slides and adrenalin-pumping rides, Siam Park is Tenerife’s biggest and best theme park.

Whale- and dolphin-watching

Around 28 species of resident and migratory whales and dolphins feed in the warm waters between Tenerife and neighbouring La Gomera, making it a superb place for watching cetaceans in their natural environment. Daily trips from Los Cristianos and Los Gigantes guarantee sightings.

Masca

Balancing on a rocky plateau in the Teno Mountains, the village of Masca was cut off from the rest of the island until the 1970s. Accessed via a road which affords breathtaking views for everyone but the driver, its highlight is a stamina-testing hike down the gorge to the beach from where a boat takes you to Los Gigantes.

 

Garachico

Once the wealthiest town on Tenerife, Garachico was engulfed in lava by an eruption in 1706. The most picturesque town on on the island, it is one of Tenerife’s most popular day trip destinations, where swimming in rock pools hewn from the lava is a unique experience.

Diving

Clear, warm waters year-round and underwater volcanic columns teeming with marine life make Tenerife an excellent destination for divers. The best places for diving are Las Galletas, Los Gigantes, Los Cristianos and Puerto de la Cruz.
