From a private catamaran you can watch whale and dolphin in the shadow of the imposing cliffs of Los Gigantes. There is the island’s culture and heritage to explore in the historic towns of Garachico, La Laguna and La Orotava. If it is scenic charm you are after, Masca is a picturesque village that reveals itself as you emerge through deep ravines.
Watersports are on offer, including jet biking, parascending, windsurfing and kitesurfing. And, once you have enjoyed the thrills and spills; walking, hiking and biking trails can place you in beautiful, untouched countryside. From Teide Volcano, the third largest volcano in the world, there are stunning panoramic views.
You can sample many of the finer pleasures in life on Tenerife. Crisp but complex wines are produced by its vineyards, art exhibitions can be explored at the Tenerife Espacio de las Artes or you can take a gastronomic tour of the island’s Michelin-starred restaurants.
