Choose your month below to view a detailed list of festivals, concerts, musical events, exhibitions, shows, sporting events, and a variety of other activities and things to do in Tenerife specific to that month. We especially love February when the internationally known Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is held. It's a must see!

That said there are additional fun and traditional festivals peppered throughout the villages, pueblos and cities of Tenerife. You'll find them listed within our Tenerife travel guide and on the above lists of things to do during your holidays in Tenerife.

Exploring Tenerife Island

As perfect as life at the beach can be, you'll want to check out more of what the Canary Islands and Tenerife have to offer while you're here.

Explore the rich cultural heritage of the island via the distinct architecture, museums, historical venues, and traditional villages such as Garachico, Icod de Los Vinos and La Laguna. On the other hand, if you prefer modern amenities, Tenerife has its southern cosmopolitan resorts of Costa Adeje, Los Cristianos and Playa de Las Americas that are famous for their vivid nightlife and attractions.

And then there's the attractions like Siam Park, Aqualand, Jungle Park, Loro Parque, Piramides de Guimar, Palmetum – just to name a few. There's something to satisfy every vacationer's wish list! And we have the info and photos to guide you in building your ideal Tenerife holiday schedule. We recommend you start here.

Don't you love when things are easy like that?

No hay mejor forma para descubrir uno de los municipios con más encanto de Canarias que un paseo en buena compañía por su Conjunto Histórico.

Los lugares imprescindibles para tus fotos ideales que deben estar marcados en tu mapa son: la iglesia de San Agustín, la plaza de la Constitución (también conocida como plaza del quiosco o plaza de Anita), el Liceo de Taoro, la iglesia de la Concepción, la casa de los Balcones, el romántico jardín Hijuela del Botánico, calles adoquinadas, el Palacio Municipal sede del ayuntamiento o los Museos Villeros.

Si tienes la oportunidad, visita también un molino de gofio, rincones únicos llenos de vida.
