    We hired a car and head to El Teide Volcano . If you stay in accommodation by the coast, it’s recommended to get early the morning on road. Usually to get there takes over an hour. We took the cable car to go up towards the top of the mountain. Cable car cannot reach the top of the volcano, you will need special permission to reach the top of the volcano. You would rather check info online.
    I would say it’s a fantastic experience and view from the top is outstanding.
    Definitely El Teide is something you shouldn’t miss when visit Tenerife.

    Very enjoyable day. Plenty of slides for thrill seekers and for those who don't like big slides. Wave pool is great fun. Plenty of places to eat. Lazy river was more fun than expected. Only downside was the queues for the lockers at the start of the day but nevertheless a great fun day out

    Great day out for all ages. You could spend the whole day here, there's so much to see and do.
    The penguin house and the sea lion show are my favourites. The park is very impressive with places to eat and drink, lots of animals and of course parrots.
    Well worth a visit.

    Nice fountain to watch while shopping or eating, definitely not as 'spectacular' as the reviews make out but pleasant non the less. Can get very busy at night time.

    By far the best part about being in Tenerife! I would come back to Tenerife exclusively for Anaga hiking.

    We were able to get a reservation for the Zona de Exclusión de Monte de Aguirre and it was one of the most amazing hikes I've done in my life. On the drive to this point, there are quite a few nice viewpoints (Mirador de Jardina, Mirador Cruz del Carmen) where you can stop and take pictures if you're lucky with the weather.

    The path itself to the Zona de Exclusion is hidden and a bit hard to find, but it is located between the Pico del Ingles viewpoint and Pico del Ingles path, on the side of the road. If you are able to, I would definitely try to get a reservation either to the Zona de Exclusion or the Enchanted Forest (El Pijaral), but there's other hiking if you don't. It's worth spending the entire day here or more, so try to get the most time you can, but even a half day is worth the visit. I would recommend prioritizing this above the other adventures on Tenerife.

    The only Beach where I would lay for sunbathing, If in Teneriffa. And I found it not overcrowded like the beaches in south of Teneriffa.

    Well worth a visit if you love animals!
    This place well exceeded our expectations. Theres not many places where you can go and feed Monkeys first hand.
    We went as a large group (9 ofus) and we all really enjoyed it, especially the kids! Great value for money, if you are visiting Tenerife and love animals then I highly recommend!

    Don’t understand why someone would rate this lower than 5, because this as good as it gets in this category. Great botanical garden, great views, great hike. Good quality plants, awesome for solo, couples and families alike. Totally must see if you ever visit Tenerife!

    The area has changed a lot over the years.
    Plenty of bars, places to eat, supermarkets, every other shop looks the same but it's OK on a warm sunny day.
    Loads of nightlife, hotels and self catering.
    Always lots of people about day & night.
    Fun place to be in the town.
    Could be too loud for some people.

    We really enjoyed the day on the whole, bird show was really good, lots of different birds not just your usual Harris hawks and owls, sea lion show was okay, we had lunch in the restaurant overlooking the sea lion show which is a nice touch. The food was good, portions quite large, cost not too bad in the restaurant for what you get, but the snack bar is quite pricey, 8.5€ for 2 bags of crisps and a mars bar. The parakeets (loris birds) are good to feed worth the 2€. Park has a nice natural feel, it’s fun navigating the park as the map is not very clear but the signposts help you out. We got taxi’s there and back from Adeje, about 12€ each way, not sure how else you would get there as its really high up in the hills

    Our favourite beach in Tenerife, with very many restaurants surrounding it to choose from, particularly beautiful with the evening's sunset if having a meal at one of the many restaurants.

    Beautiful beach. Easily accessible, plenty of space. Has sun loungers (I think you need to pay for?)
    We lay on our towels on the soft sand. I swam in the sea which was lovely. Lots of families, friends and couples.
    Only thing that was a bit annoying was people trying to sell sunglasses, bags ect, constantly coming up to you asking.
    Would reccommend and would visit again
