The Los Gigantes cliffs are one of the most spectacular natural sites to visit in Tenerife. Situated in Santiago del Teide, this stunning cliff stands 600 m above sea level, with a vertiginous drop that would be daunting even for the most daring of climbers. Its seabed boasts an incredible array of underwater flora and fauna that attracts many a diver to explore down below and many a fishing enthusiast to fish from the heights.
Whale watchingThe Atlantic Ocean offers exhilarating experiences for lovers of the giant, graceful sea creatures. Whales and dolphins swim together while your sailboat tours the waters -an experience that will surely remain as one of your favourite memories of Tenerife.
Parque del DragoOne of the Canary Islands’ most cherished living monuments. In the north of Tenerife, nestled in the Icod de los Vinos district, you’ll find the Drago Milenario, a tree that is almost one thousand years old and stands nearly 18 metres high. It has been declared a National Heritage Monument and emblematic symbol of the Canary Islands. Around the tree you’ll find a natural park with a luscious selection of island greenery.
