If you have a bit of energy to burn off then head for the beach! At most resorts in Tenerife you will find trampolines to bounce away on. Both adults and kids can have fun here!The blocks of around 10 or so well maintained trampolines are enclosed with high safety netting.
For a small cost of just over 2 Euro you can enjoy yourself or impress the spectators with your tricks for 10 happy minutes - most of the time, if there is no great demand for the trampolines then you will probably be able to stay on much longer! Just pay as you enter, take off your shoes and bounce!
Make sure you have a drink at the ready for when you eventually drop especially in the hotter months, it's exhausting!
It is possible to climb right to the top of Mt Teide, you can go up by cable car then carry on to the summit by foot, then walk down if you wish, the walk however takes about 4 - 5 hours

please be aware that the footpaths may be closed due to snow and ice

Even though other canary islands are more know for there waves, you have very good waves in Tenerife. One of the best you will be able to find in Playa de las America's, so acces and everything is very easy.
Which also means it will bring in the crowds, but if you arive at dawn, you will still be able to find some empty waves, as the locals will come a little later. And even though stories g that the locals are very localized, it isn't that bad. Yes I have seen people being talked out of the water, but well some people just drop in, and nobody likes that. If you play your cool, don't drop in and don't mind to wait a bit longer for waves, you will have a good time with the locals.
Equipment: La izquerda is a very fast hollow wave, which break on shallow reef. It can handle 8foot swell, so be prepared for it.
But as the island offers everything for everybody, you could take what you want with you.

Playa de El Medano is the main beach on the South coast of Tenerife and is renowned for it’s excellent surfing conditions. With arguably the strongest winds in the Canary Islands, it is particularly good for rolling swell with flat water near the harbour wall.

With beach barbeques, bars, and bargains galore, El Medano has all the ingredients every surfer needs to have a fantastic time on Tenerife. If windsurfing runs on your blood, then this is the place for you.
