While plenty of us jet off to Tenerife for the sunshine, there’s no denying that it’s the nightlife and party spirit that keep us going all night.
Drinks are cheap, bars are vibrant and nights are balmy, so who isn’t going to be up for some fun evening antics?
Check out our tips on making the most of what Tenerife offers, from venues to life-hacks that keep your party popping.
The king of clubbing
The typical after-dark action you’re likely imagining is most often found in the big resorts like Playa De Las Americas.
The party kingdom here is crowned by Tramps Tenerife, naming itself the ‘King of Clubs’, and promising visitors who play their cards right an intense night.
The decks of top DJs from across the globe send beats thudding over dancing crowds under swathes of hot neon.
Sounds range from club classics to more out-there offerings like future-funk and experimental electronica.
Old school hip-hop nights and even a dedicated Coco Bongo area for cheesy pop mean the music is always on point. And you can expect this place to be busy every day of the week.
A mix of quiet pints and banging tunes
If you prefer a little more intimacy to your outings though, neighbouring Los Cristianos focuses more on live music and pub banter over pints.
A venue like Cobbler Cocktail & Gastrobar is where you go to check out the local live music talent, with a fantastic gig atmosphere that always sets the scene.
Don’t be fooled though, because Los Cristianos can give you some club life too – dance to techno at the Wild Side to see what we mean.
Tips and tricks
Nobody likes a buzzkill, but there are a few things worth keeping in mind to make sure your party in Tenerife is a night to remember, rather than one you’re keen to forget.
For one thing, there’s no need to spend your precious holiday time hungover, so make sure you respect your limits while enjoying the island’s party scene.
While Tenerife has the advantages of cheap booze as well, set yourself a budget before you head out so you don’t end up blasting all your spending money away on your first night on the island.
Likewise, feel free to explore and add some variety to your nights out in Tenerife, and you’ll find there’s a party for every occasion.
Festivals like Arona Summer Festival will keep you dancing all day and night, or chill out at a cosy beach parties spiced up by acoustic guitar sounds.
