    Trampolines!

    by mazzap Updated Mar 25, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beach side bouncing!

    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!

    Hiking

    by mocca Updated Jan 27, 2005

    Well, where to start. No I am not gonna start actually, just know that the island is a hikers paradise. So buy a good hiking book on Tenerife, and you're all set to head out for adventure. Just keep in mind that if you come in winter, the northern part of the island is very rainy then.

    Equipment: Good hiking boots, warm clotinh (it can get very cold up the mountain and up north in the winter), good hiking map, good rain gear and don't forget your camera

    Wtach the reef, it is shallow!!!!

    by mocca Written Jan 27, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Equipment: All the equipment can be rented down on the beach or in the case of snorkelling can be bought quite cheaply from one of the many cheap gift shops.

    Tenerife in two wheels

    by elcolibri Written May 2, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tenerife has paved main road and smaller gravel road to practice the biking under it cool climate all year round. A mountain bike is ideal for tours up the side of the main feature - Mount Teide - with its trails through huge expanses of volcanic rock but the extremely steep road to the mountains can need a great effort for the novices. who can practice it in the little flat parts of the island.

    Equipment: Several companies offer bicycle hire (mountain bike hire), moped hire, scooter hire and motorcycle hire. The powered machines usually range from 90cc moped/scooters to larger motorcycles such as the Kawasaki Tengai 650. Prices vary depending on the number of days you hire the bike, but start at around 17 Euros per day for scooter hire. The more days you hire a bike for the lower the price will get. You have to wear a crash helmet that you can hire at the same time as you hire your bike. For hiring bikes you have to be at least 18 years.

    Hiking canarian walks

    by elcolibri Written May 2, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tenerife has an extensive network of sign-posted tourist trails, offering interesting guided and self-guided walks. There is also a large number of recreation areas offering a full range of services.
    The rugged island terrain attracts large numbers of mountaineers who come here for the rock climbing and to descend the gorges. The island also offers great take off sites for paragliding, with spectacular and unusual views.

    Equipment: In the Teide National Park, there is an extensive network of tracks providing access to the most interesting sites. Based on criteria of safety, comfort, local knowledge and the enjoyment of visitors, the Park management especially recommends the guided and self-guided routes, rather than some of the more dangerous and lengthy trails that are not recommended for most people. Other important places for hiking are Anaga Forest and Punta de Teno.

    Surfing in El Medano

    by elcolibri Written May 2, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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. There are plenty of cheap but excellent quality self-catering places to stay and a more than generous sprinkling of fairly priced local eateries. 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.

    Equipment: Equipment can be hired from a number of reputable places lining or not far from the beach so there should be no excuse not to hit the waves.

    Stingray

    Here you can dive with the stingrays.
    Some of the bigger ones have had their tails removed as they were becoming too aggressive.

    The water is not as clear or as warm as the Caribbean or the red sea but it was still a nice dive site.

    Equipment: Mask, fins, snorkel, BCD.
    You can rent all the equipment here as well.
