Stretching from the coast of West Africa into the Atlantic Ocean, the Canary Islands are waiting for your arrival—and yes, there’s a lot more to this Spanish archipelago than just singing birds. When you’ve opted to book a Canary Islands holiday, we recommend starting on the island of Tenerife and just soaking in everything there is to do. National parks, black and white-sand beaches, hiking trails, waterfalls and lava fields are here for you to start exploring—grab your holiday self and go!
After you book one of our Canary Islands packages, all that's left for you to decide is how you will begin your adventure. Start by climbing Mount Teide, a volcano located on Tenerife. The best time to go is early in the morning to catch the sunrise, so bring your camera along to catch those all-important snapshots for social media. Need to get around? Book one of Wotif’s Canary Islands car hire options and drive it to Mount Playa de la Tejita, an inviting and secluded beach away from the bustling crowds. If you opt to save the beach for later, try out one of many golf courses sprinkled around the island. Your par is bound to improve in these gorgeous surroundings!
Shopping abounds in Tenerife and La Laguna is the place to start. This UNESCO World Heritage Site displays stunning Spanish architecture and street after street of candy-coloured buildings. Linger on Carrera Street and pick up some goodies for your loved ones back home—a handmade swimsuit or some local honey or wine make great souvenirs. You can rest assured that your shopping experience won't break the budget, since Tenerife has the lowest taxes in Europe.
Next, take your savings down the street for a delicious meal. Fresh prawns and other seafood are common, but be sure to try some Canarian wrinkly potatoes, a local specialty. These salt-crusted potatoes with red pepper mojo sauce are a treat to savour—plus they have a fun name! There are countless restaurants in the area to choose from, but finding one with an outdoor patio is key, since the sea air is pretty much a requirement when it comes to holiday bragging rights. If you’re feeling adventurous, move around the island at will for brunch spots with ocean views, lunch next to a waterfall or dinner by a banana plantation.
After dark, Playa de las Americas becomes the centre of the island's nightlife. Enjoy international DJs and live music around every corner. Dance the night away on rooftop terraces that have plenty of room for you to learn salsa or merengue. If you want to trade neon lights for gas ones, try stargazing. There are many observatories to choose from, like the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory, and Tenerife is the home of the GREGOR solar telescope, the largest in Europe. You can add a more personal touch by scheduling a night tour, where local guides will show you the constellations in a whole new light.
