Activities in Tenerife - sports and fun on the holiday island
Sports and fun – activity holidays in Tenerife
The Canary island of Tenerife is one of the most beautiful destinations for activity holidays. Besides bathing, the beaches provide perfect conditions for watersports such as waterskiing, surfing and kiting. The best beaches to go kiting and surfing are in El Médano, on the southern side of Tenerife. But you can also find some bays to go surfing in the north of Tenerife.
Tenerife is very good for golfing. The most popular golf courses are in Costa Adeje, Los Cristianos and Las Américas, which are at your disposal, just like the courses of Abama Golf and Buenavista Golf. We recommend golf lovers to rent a holiday home near the golf green, e. g. one of the apartment of the Green Garden Resort.
Especially in the interior of the island, there are numerous mountains with wonderful hiking trails. Special mountaineering equipment is not necessary. Enjoy the unique flora and fauna of Tenerife during your tour.
As it is very impressive, many tourists spend their holidays in Tenerife to explore the island by mountain bike. Especially popular and very challenging is the route up the highest mountain of Spain, the Teide. Those who don’t want to bring their own bike with them, can rent a bike on the island, too. “Diga Sports” for example is well equipped and also offers guided hiking, kayak and mountain bike excursions, in addition to racing and mountain bikes. Those who bring their own bike with them, normally have a place to store it securely in their holiday apartment or house.
Your activity holidays are also the perfect time to try out new sports, as for example paragliding, whereby you can enjoy the feeling of floating in the air.
Another challenging activity is climbing. In Tenerife, you have many possibilities to go climbing, e. g. in the Cañadas, in Arico and in El Rio. You need special mountaineering equipment here. Also for climbing, there are specialist shops in Tenerife, where you can get the suitable equipment, as well as good and useful tips. The varied rock formations of the island offer climbing and sport climbing. Info: The climbing gardens are perfectly equipped and most of them are of climbing grade 5 to 7. If you want to avoid a long journey, it is recommendable to rent a holiday apartment or house in the respective area. On the Finca Vista del Mar at the foot of the mountain Teide, or on the Finca Diego in Arico, you live near the climbing areas.
A holiday apartment or house offers the ideal conditions for your activity holidays in Tenerife. You don’t depend on mealtimes and can organize all activities during your holidays on your own. Besides the already mentioned activities, the island also offers riding holiday on fincas, and tennis courts, e. g. in “Callao Sport” in Callao Salvaje.
You can go diving in the north, as well as in the south. In the preferred diving areas, there is always a diving school with diving instructors and the necessary diving equipment.
Holiday makers who first and foremost want to relax on holiday, but also be active, should go on a finca with apartments and holiday houses that offer wellness and a swimming pool, but also sports possibilities like tennis, golf putting green, 4 m trampoline, pool, yoga and more.
