One of the best things you can do for free in Tenerife is see the natural wonders here. Whether you love learning new things, making an impressive scrapbook or simply need to fill the time, head to Teide National park. Completely free to enter, this UNESCO awarded world heritage site is actually the most visited site in Europe. Grab your hiking boots and head up the mountain, explore the museum and catch an informative film – of course, snap a few selfies with the impressive views!
Similarly, the Garachico rock pools make for another fantastic spot. It’s a series of lava rock pools formed by a volcanic eruption and you can even go for a swim here. There’s varying depths, so those confident swimmers can take the plunge and little ones can stay in the shallows. It makes for a great compromise of seeing the sights, and having a beach day.
Join the crowds at Santa Cruz Carnival
If you’re heading to Tenerife for a spot of winter sun, you’re in perfect time for the fantastic Santa Cruz Carnival. It’s the biggest party across the Canary Islands and this Spanish festival is full of vibrant colour, flamboyance and some serious rhythm! It can be a completely free activity while in Tenerife, just show up and join in – although, if you do want to fit in with the locals why not dress up?
The carnival lasts 15 days between February and March and is seriously something to not be missed! It’s fun for all.
