How to Spend 3 Days in Tenerife
Whether you’re escaping for a weekend in paradise or visiting as part of a Canary Islands cruise, there’s plenty to keep you busy in Tenerife. Here are some ideas for how to spend 3 days in Tenerife.

Day 1: Check Out the Capital

The most atmospheric time of year to visit Santa Cruz is during the vibrant annual Carnival, but even if you miss out on the festivities, you can still learn about the islands’ unique history at the Museum of Man and Nature, admire the landmark  Auditorio de Tenerife and Church of the Immaculate Conception, and tuck into traditional Spanish cuisine at one of the many restaurants. The capital is also linked by tram to neighboring La Laguna, where you can marvel at the colonial architecture and historic churches that line the UNESCO-listed Old Town.

Day 2: Climb an Active Volcano

Take in the best of Tenerife’s rugged scenery with a trip to the top of the El Teide volcano,  Spain’s highest peak at 3,718m and one of the most iconic attractions of the Canary Islands. Whether you brave the steep hike or hop on the cable car, the views are spectacular, looking down over the surrounding Teide National Park, a UNESCO World heritage Site, and the neighboring Pico Viejo volcano.

Day 3: Hit the Beach

With some of the most popular beaches in Europe, you can’t come to the Canary Islands without adding sun, sea and sand to your itinerary. Where you go depends on your tastes: major resorts like Los Cristianos and Playa de Las Americas are crammed with tourists during the summer season, whereas El Bollullo and La Caleta offer a tranquil vibe with fewer amenities. Thrill-seeking windsurfers and kitesurfing should head to El Médano on the south coast or if sunbathing sans clothing is your thing, head to the nudist beach of Playa Tejita.
