Tenerife - Things To Do & Attractions

Top Things to do in Tenerife

Nightlife

If the nightlife and beach-life are your main draw, stick close to the resorts of Los Cristianos, Playa de Las Américas & Costa Adeje in the South of the island, with their shimmering white sands and round-the-clock party culture.

The Great Outdoors

Fancy a break from vegetating by the pool? Get set to scale the dizzying heights of Mount Teide, Spain’s tallest peak. You’ll feel as if you’ve landed on another planet as you trek across the vibrant moonscape of volcanic rock.

Nature Lovers

Love your wildlife? Witness one of the ocean’s most spectacular sights on a dolphin-spotting cruise, as you watch whales and dolphins swim and play in their natural environment. You can also see one of the biggest collection of parrots and other animals in Europe at Loro Parque, Tenerife’s most popular wildlife park.

Water Parks

Of course we couldn’t miss out the water parks! If you’re divided between the sun-worshippers and the stir-crazies, spending a day at the likes of Siam Park is sure to tick everyone’s boxes - plus they’re great for keeping the kids entertained!

Getting Around in Tenerife

Free Theme Park Shuttle

Renting a Car
  • It’s easy to rent a car in Tenerife, as there are loads of car-rental agencies across the island.
  • The bigger international chains can be found in all major resorts, as well as at the airports, and rental usually costs between €25 and €45 a day.
  • There are also many smaller local businesses which offer slightly older cars at a cheaper rate.
Bus
  • Tenerife’s bus service TITSA (www.titsa.com) runs services all over the island and can take you to most of the places worth seeing!
  • If you intend to use the bus a lot, get a “Bono Bus” card, which can save you 30-50% on usual fares and also includes discounted entry into many of Tenerife’s museums.
  • You can purchase Bono Bus Tickets from bus stations, bus terminals, and various retail outlets, often newsagents - look out for the green Bono Bus sign.
  • The journey from Playa de las Americas to the capital Santa Cruz takes about one hour by bus.
Taxi
Taxis are available pretty much everywhere on the island. It can be an expensive way to get around though, so if you think you’ll need them a lot, it may be a better idea to hire a car.
