The Best Holiday Can be Had in Tenerife

Considered a top tourist destination, the Spanish island of Tenerife offers a wealth of enticing and exciting opportunities to keep visitors entertained and wishing they had more time to spend here. One of the reasons people cite for going to Tenerife is the great year-round weather that dominates this region. This island experiences spring-like temperatures throughout the year, thanks to the Passat winds from the northeast and the cooler ocean currents from the north.

Carnival
Another outstanding reason for visiting Tenerife, especially in February, is the carnival celebrated throughout the island for about three weeks. Considered second only to Rio de Janeiro’s, this festival outdoes itself for flamboyant costumes, decorations and riotous celebrations. The competitions provide further excitement starting with the Carnival Queens selection, although the most popular may be the Drag Queen of Carnival competition, which places more emphasis on performance.

Beaches
Tenerife is blessed with amazing beaches, including golden and black sand beaches. There are even nudist beaches for those with fewer inhibitions. Considered a work of art, Lago Martianez in Puerto de la Cruz is a fine example of coastal transformation, with its series of seawater pools for bathing and sunning, complemented with original sculptures and gardens.

Adventure Sports
There is no end to the list of outdoor activities for the more adventurous visitors. Among the more popular sports are paragliding, mountain biking, kite surfing and the Sky Park Tenerife, which features a 60-meter bungee jump. Also available are the Aqualand Costa Adeje Water Park, underwater submarine safaris and the Parque Las Aguilas Jungle Park.

Mount Teide
This volcanic mountain stands at 3717.91 meters (12,198 feet), making it the highest mountain on Spanish territory and the third largest volcano in the world, which last erupted in 1909. Now a national park, the summit boasts a path that takes hikers past the “eggs of Teide” (black volcanic rocks), across an old lava flow, past a path that goes to an old commercial ice cave and on up to the crater’s rim. But the incredible view from the top makes it all worthwhile. From there visitors can look down 2000 meters onto Tenerife’s famous cloud seas caused by an almost permanent inversion layer. If there is not too much haze, the rest of the Canary Islands may be seen peeking out of the cloud layer.
