Want to escape the winter cold and warm up? Tenerife is a perfect winter sun destination, where the sun is still shining in the winter. And this island has a lot to offer you. We list tips!
Visit the El Teide
Did you know that there is a volcano on Tenerife? The El Teide is the largest volcano on the island and is located in a beautiful natural park.
A visit to this protected nature reserve is definitely worth it. Tip: it is wonderful to watch the starry sky here on a clear evening. This is the third best place in the world to look at stars.
Relax on the beach of Los Cristianos
What you encounter a lot on Tenerife are black lava beaches. But in addition to these beaches, there are also pearly white beaches. If you would like to settle down on a white beach, which is one of the cleanest beaches on the island, then you have come to the right place at Los Cristianos.
You can book many excursions on Tenerife, including an excursion to spot dolphins. I also did this myself during my vacation on Tenerife and that was a great success. It is very special to see dolphins in the wild and then also in large groups.
Loro Parque Tenerife
In Puerto de la Cruz you will find the parrot park ‘Loro Parque’. The name suggests that you will only find parrots here, but nothing could be further from the truth. You can also find dolphins, orcas and sea lions here. In addition, it is known for the many plant species.
Visit a banana plantation
In Tenerife you will find them everywhere: banana plants. It is therefore not surprising when you want to know more about this plant. There are plenty of excursions to book at banana plantations, where you learn everything about this fruit.
