Top things to do in Tenerife in September 2015 - on every calendar there is a saying for each month, and we don’t want to lose the tradition, so: ‘March and September are like brothers; one says goodbye to winter and the other to summer’. That is what you are going to ‘enjoy’ this September in Tenerife, as there are many celebrations planned to see off the summer and you will have to take good advantage of them. 

The good weather usually continues in this month and it is perfect to continue going to the beach.

The activities which we mention below are mentioned as things to do in Tenerife in September but can be carried out almost all year round.

As it is still very hot in September, if you decide to spend a day at Jungle Park you will be able to feel a bit of freshness. This is because the only jungle in Europe has areas where you can walk without feeling too hot, as well as enjoying shows and exotic animals. The following day you can go to Aqualand to refresh yourself in the water and have fun with the toboggans.

Have you imagined being in the artificial wave pool which produces the biggest wave in the world? Well at Siam Park it is possible, so prepare yourself and get in the water as soon as you hear the gong-like sound which warns of the ‘danger’ which approaches. This huge waterpark is one of the options of things to do in Tenerife in September and any other month of the year.

In the north the best choices of things to do in Tenerife in September, if you want to spend a tranquil day sunbathing, is Lago Martiánez, where you will not only find pools but also a permanent exhibition of contemporary art, which only those who are very attentive will be able to enjoy.

Golf in Tenerife – make the most of it not being high season and spend a day playing this interesting sport, with the added bonus of spectacular views. Golf del Sur is one of the best in Tenerife and in Europe.

Patea Tus Montes offers you the possibility of going in a two-seater kayak in La Caleta in the summer (it is suitable for beginners).

With the El Cardón NaturExperience you can discover a sky riddled with stars in an unforgettable location like Las Cañadas del Teide at night.

Seeing the whales and the dolphins with the Catamaran Bonadea II group will be an unbeatable experience.
