Tenerife travel tips

1) Drive along the scenic northeast coast of Tenerife

It's truly difficult to point to one exact spot along the northeast coast of Tenerife as it’s beautiful all the way. Take a coastal road from Buenavista del Nte to nearby Icod. The whole way, you will be able to witness how the Atlantic ocean crashes wildly on the volcanic rocks. Coming closer, have fun trying not to get wet to the skin!

2) Take part in Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival, the second most popular in the world

Tenerife’s Carnival is the second most popular in the world after Rio De Janeiro. Santa Cruz, the capital of Tenerife, hosts the event, which lasts for 15 days every February. Hordes of people come to become part of this epic fiesta. There is only one obligation — to have fun. Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival is famous for the most brilliant spectacles, life pleasures, extravagance, and freedom. Join up this feast of life!

3) Don’t stay on the beach for a night in Tenerife

Sleeping on the beach may seem very romantic, but you should deny this action. Otherwise, you risk ending up in the prison of Tenerife. The police are pretty strict concerning this violation. It will also involve a fine and an overnight stay in prison. So think twice, and don’t be reckless!
