How to Spend 2 Days in Tenerife

How to Spend 2 Days in Tenerife

With two days to explore Tenerife, you’ll have time to ride a cable car up a volcano, do some mountaintop stargazing, take an ocean cruise, learn about the island’s famous carnival celebrations, relax on the beach, and more. Here’s how to make the most of two days on the largest Canary Island.

Day 1: From City Sights to Stargazing

**Morning:**Start in the island capital of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where a city tour or hop-on-hop-off-bus tour will introduce you to the town’s lively neighborhoods, shopping streets, and historic plazas. Jump off to admire the landmark Tenerife Auditorium and learn about the city’s legendary carnival celebrations at the Casa del Carnaval, then ride the tram to neighboring San Cristobal de la Laguna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its colonial architecture. 

**Afternoon:**Spend the afternoon taking in the views along Tenerife’s west coast. Stop to see the Millenary Dragon Tree at Icod de los Vinos, marvel at the Los Gigantes sea cliffs, and visit the picturesque town of La Orotava, then take a scenic drive through the Masca Valley.

**Night:**A visit to Teide National Park is a must for first-time visitors to Tenerife, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site is even more spectacular in the evening hours. Ride the cable car to the summit of Mount Teide in time to watch the sunset over the island, admire the park’s lava-sculpted landscapes during a moonlit tour, then take part in an unforgettable stargazing experience.

Day 2: Ocean Views and Beach Breaks

**Morning:**The south coast of Tenerife is renowned for its dramatic coastal cliffs, rocky coves, and black-sand beaches, and the most striking views are from the water. Many cruise options are available, from dolphin- and whale-watching cruises to private charter boats, but for the best value, opt for a catamaran cruise that includes lunch onboard and plenty of stops for swimming and snorkeling. 

**Afternoon:**The south coast resorts of Playa de las Américas, Los Cristianos, and Costa Adeje boast some of the island’s most beautiful beaches. Spend the afternoon swimming and sunbathing, take a stroll along the palm-lined shores, or take part in water sports such as Jet Skiing or kitesurfing.

**Evening:**Playa de las Américas is renowned as Tenerife’s party capital, so it’s worth sticking around after dark to explore the huge choice of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. Alternatively, celebrate your final night with a medieval dinner show at Castillo San Miguel, featuring costumed knights and horseback jousting.
