Unwind in Tenerife

The economy of many exotic regions in the world largely depends on the amount (and consequently, the money) of visitors that come and visit their places. Tenerife is one of these regions. Tourism is Tenerife’s most important industry, considering that Tenerife and the rest of the Canary Islands are some of the primary tourist destinations in the world.

According to the Canarian Statistics Center’s Report on Tourism, over 10 million foreign tourists, excluding local ones, come to Tenerife and the rest of the Canary Islands each year. That number is still increasing as tourist facilities become better.

Things to Do in Tenerife

If you are a first-time traveller in Tenerife, you might find it difficult to choose which activities you should do or what places you should visit. Well, here are some suggestions from prolific travelers:

• Sail in a catamaran – surrounded by azure seas on all sides, it is no doubt that Tenerife is one of the best places in the world for sailing enthusiasts. Thus, you can rent a catamaran and have a sailing excursion around Tenerife and the rest of the Canary Islands. Be amazed at dolphins that swim beside you as the vessel cruises. And if the weather is good, you can snorkel or dive overboard to witness the magnificent underwater world.

• Submarine safari – the world under the sea is remarkably different from the world on land. Thus, a trip below the seas is indeed an extraordinary adventure. Now, you can have this adventure in Tenerife in comfort and style. Ride a specially designed submarine that goes 100 feet down below the ocean. From the window, discover vast coral beds, playful and colorful fish, gigantic stingrays, and underwater gardens.

• Waterparks – if you have children with you, take them to Tenerife’s exciting waterparks. They will surely enjoy waterslides, rubber boats, trampolines, and other amenities. They will also enjoy stunning dolphin shows, eat great food in the waterparks’ restaurants, and play hide-and-seek in water castles. Oh yes, the term “children”? That applies to the child in you also!

• Joy riding around the island – Tenerife’s water adventures may not be enough for you. Yes, it’s not because Tenerife has more wonders to offer you inland. Thus, grab a motorcycle or bicycle and travel around the island. Witness gorgeous mountains, rustic towns, expansive savannas, and other wonders of nature. Explore cultural and historical wonders such as the Pyramids of Guimar, the Cathedral of San Cristóbal de La Laguna, the modern Auditorio de Tenerife, and more.

• Beaches – of course, a trip in Tenerife is not complete without basking out in the sun or swimming in the cool waters in one of Tenerife’s clean and unspoiled beaches.
