Escaping the Winter is always a good idea but finding an affordable place where to go is hard. Although it is cheap to stay in India or Thailand, flying there is onerous and it’s too far away to go for a couple of weeks. But luckily, in Europe, we have access to beautiful islands with warm weather all year round. One of those is Tenerife in the Canary Islands.
Tenerife is the largest island of the Canaries. It is famous among tourists because it has stunning beaches with gold and black sand. It also has an active volcano and unique ecology. As well as breathtaking landscapes, you’ll scroll through pretty towns. This island should be on the list of places to visit at least once in their life.
There are a lot of fun things to do in Tenerife, and the first thing most people do is going to the beach. Most of the beaches on Tenerife are lined with sand, and this is great if you dislike rocky beaches. You can enjoy walks by the waterside without worrying about stepping on rocks.
If you want to spend your day on an unusual beach, you should visit Playa Jardín. This beach is lined with black volcanic sand. Playa Jardín is located on the north side of Puerto de la Cruz. Apart from the beach, you can visit some of the restaurants that are located nearby. When the sky is particularly clear, you can even see the tip of the volcano.
Apart from Playa Jardín, Playa de las Americas is also very famous for tourists. This beach is fun for the young crowd because it is famous for its great nightlife. Most of the beaches have the option of renting a chair, and only for a couple of euros, so if you want to spend your day lying around and enjoy the sound of the waves with a book, you’ll be in paradise.
One of the best ways to feel the soul of the country you are visiting is to try some of its local dishes. Most of the restaurants on Tenerife serve traditional Canarian or Spanish food, and in some, you can find local traditional dishes. You should take your time and try most of their traditional meals. One of the best ways to see Tenerife island is to rent a car and drive through the countryside. You can take tours with tour guides or boat rides, but the best way to get the best of it is to lose the map and head on the adventure.
If you want to have the adventure of the lifetime, you should spend one whole day to take a road trip to Teide National Park, it is actually an active volcano. If you want to reach the top of the volcano, you can do so with a cable car, it’s fun! The cable car will take you on a height of 11,500 feet, and you will have a great view of the whole national park.
And for history lovers, you should visit the historic town of La Orotava.
This was just a brief account of the many things you’ll enjoy on Tenerife, but there’s so much more! We can’t wait for you to tell us your favourite bit!
