Sail close to whales and dolphins all year round in Tenerife
Tenerife is an island which offers hundreds of things to enjoy. One of the island’s best qualities is an average spring-like annual temperature of 22ºC, with warm summers and mild winters. It is the perfect place to travel alone because it is an exotic and safe destination within the European Union, visited by 5 million people every year.
The Islanders are friendly and welcoming. Fun is guaranteed at the island’s popular fiestas and traditional celebrations. Beyond the tourist resorts, Tenerife’s authenticity can be witnessed throughout the year at the island’s festivals and in its rural life, landscape, music, tropical carnival and architecture.
In Tenerife, all kinds of holidays can be experienced from a relaxing, healthy holiday to practicing sports and open air activities.
In the waters surrounding the south of the island, it is possible to sail close to whales and dolphins all year round. In fact, Tenerife is one of the world’s best places for whale and dolphin watching. In addition, it is also one of the few places in the world where all existing volcanic processes can be seen, from landscapes such as badlands to black sandy beaches and lava pools. The Teide National Park, dominated by Mount Teide, the third highest volcanic peak in the world, is a magnificent example – hence its UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
The gastronomy in Tenerife has evolved into a creative and original cuisine over the last few years – traditional recipes are fused with new flavours and the newest techniques, making it a unique experience that you can enjoy even if you are vegetarian. All dishes are served with local wines, whose history dates back to the 15th century. From elegant Michelin-starred restaurants to rustic local eateries, Tenerife offers fine dining to suit all pockets and tastes.
Tenerife has always been renowned for having an ideal and beneficial climate for the body and soul so if you are a woman who wants to treat herself, you won´t find a better place to do so. There are many health and beauty treatments available at renowned SPA centres (salud per aqua) and SPAs. These combine traditional Oriental treatments with Western know-how: facials, hot stones, aromatherapy, exfoliation, anti-cellulite and treatments using ancestral techniques such as oxygen therapy, the Photon dome, massages, pressotherapy, snow cabins, Kneipp therapies, Jacuzzis, spa swimming pools and many others.
Spoiling yourself in Tenerife also involves special attractions such as walking barefoot on black sand beaches, enjoying the most beautiful sunsets, which can be seen every day, or gazing up at the stars in the one of the cleanest skies in the world. If after all that, you want to enjoy a little shopping, Tenerife has the best options!

From boutiques, perfume and electronics shops to farmer’s markets and small stores selling traditional products, including lace (such as tablecloths and handkerchiefs, which are exported to the Americas and Europe), wines, pottery and much more.
Tenerife is the perfect place for enjoying activities day and night, any day of the week and in total safety. The island’s excellent climate means that its outdoor terraces – near the sea, in yachting marinas, parks and shopping streets – can be enjoyed all year round.
There is plenty of entertainment including original shows in the north and south of the island. Choose from concerts and musicals to festivals and traditional shows.
