Ever since we’ve first traveled to Tenerife in September 2014, we wanted to go back. There was something about that island dragging us to explore it again, so this May we finally got to do it. As soon as we found some reasonably priced tickets, we booked them. The price of the ticket and our accommodation was great, plus it was in the middle of May which meant we’ve avoided high tourist season – so it was a double “yes”!
Flying over the island of Tenerife made me quite emotional, that is always the thing with me – returning back to a place I love, fills me up with a lot of emotions. The colour of the sky was so amazing during the landing, I probably took hundreds of photos, but it was something special, really.
Even though Tenerife offers some amazing beaches, surprisingly we did not spend a lot of time there, but decided to explore the island instead. About that in my next posts, so stay tuned for that!
As I mentioned before, we have visited Tenerife 4 years ago, so I’ve decided to share some photos from then as well. Mainly because we have not visited all places we did in 2014, but I wanted to show them to you anyways (and I know you are eager to see them haha).
Besides being busy driving around and exploring the island, the reason we have not spent as much time on the beach you would expect us to, was the fact that the sea was really cold. As some of you may know, Tenerife is surfer’s paradise and therefore there are waves and the wind. So Tenerife is far from a hot tropical retreat with a warm sea, as some of you may think. Don’t get me wrong, there are some really beautiful sandy beaches with palm trees and the human-friendly temperatures of the sea haha, but it can get really windy and cold quite fast.
Well, I’ve just realized this post is all over the place, as I am reading it now. The main goal was to show you big differences within beaches in Tenerife, from sandy beaches and palm trees, to surfer beaches and cliffs. As I have mentioned before, there are a few more post from Tenerife coming soon, so keep an eye.
Furthermore I am thinking about doing “What to do in Tenerife?” post at the end and collect all the things we did and ( same style of post as I did for Amalfi coast: AMALFI COAST GUIDE: WHAT TO DO AND WHAT TO SEE? )
