Travel to Paradise in Tenerife

Updated on March 13, 2014

The Worlds Most Beautiful Sunsets

Welcome to Paradise in the Atlantic

Imagine for a moment, that you have no worries, no fears about making it to work on time or whether or not the babysitter will show up for your weekly date night outing, none of that. Imagine finding yourself in paradise, what would you do with your time? From surfing on the beautiful beaches to climbing Mount Teide, the highest point in all of Spain, you will never run out of things to pique your curiosity when you visit Tenerife. As the largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife is one of the most unique and charming places on the planet, and should definitely be on your bucket list of places to see. An island paradise, where you can spend the day hiking in the mountains or swimming in the sea, plus whatever you can think of in between, Tenerife has definitely made its mark on my soul.

When you arrive in Tenerife, you can feel the magic in the air. The friendly locals are ever so helpful in anything you may want or need, and when it comes to resorts and hotels, Tenerife has some of the very best. If you are a golf fan, you can choose from nine exquisite golf courses on the island, all of them having 18 holes, as well as accommodations meant to make this the best golfing experience of your life. If you aren't into golf and came to the islands for island adventures, there are more activities than could be listed here available every day for the lucky ones who happen to stumble upon what some say is the lost island of Atlantis.

Things to do while in Tenerife

While visiting the island of Tenerife, you can choose from a plethora of things to keep you occupied, or you can choose to relax in the sand and do nothing at all. That is the beauty of this magical place, there is no right or wrong answer as to what you should or should not be doing. Enjoy the many sea adventures, offered by the local companies, that are sure to bring a smile to your face. Spend the day taking lessons learning how to surf, kite board, paddle board or long board in waters that are known around Europe to have some of the best surfing conditions in the world. If surfing isn't your thing, but you are still into adventure along the coast, you can opt to try para sailing or hang gliding as an outlet to get your adrenaline going. Still not something you want to try? How about a horseback ride along the coast, the options are endless and you are guaranteed to have endless fun while you are in Tenerife, you may not even want to travel back home!

Tenerife offers many daily excursions that you can choose from, travel around the island and visit all of its famous wineries, of course,tasting as you go along. Shop among some of the best shopping centers and unique boutiques in the world, or bargain and haggle yourself a great deal on some amazing items at one of the Hindu bazaars that you will find around the island. Whether you are in the mood for a 5 star resort type vacation, or a quaint and charming local experience, Tenerife has everything you could possibly ask for and then some.

Tenerife Nightlife

If you enjoy a night out on the town, you will love a night out on the island. In Tenerife there are countless bars and pubs you can stop in and have a few drinks, or you can visit one, or a few, of their world class night clubs. The island lights up after dark, offering you the experience of a lifetime. If you are a world traveler and you even so much as kind of like New Orleans, Tenerife will absolutely blow your mind.

This island paradise, as I continually call it, is situated just right, so that it remains the perfect temperature for any activity all year long. Tenerife has an average of 300 days of sunshine out of every year, meaning anytime is a great time to visit. Whether you are very modest and just want to enjoy the spectacular views of nature between the Atlantic Ocean and Mount Teide, or you are very not-modest and want to enjoy the nightlife scene to its fullest, there is something to do in Tenerife for everyone. This is one vacation destination that you definitely do not want to miss.

Held every February, the entire island celebrates this carnival for a week long party that never stops!
