Tips For Travelling Alone in Tenerife

A solo holiday in Tenerife is an exciting prospect. There's so much to experience and, since you're travelling alone, you get to decide exactly how much or little you do. We at Holiday Extras love sharing ideas with you, so here are our tips on travelling alone in Tenerife. The first one is to book one of our airport transfers. We'll collect you off your flight and take you to destinations all across Spain.

Try something new

Since you're travelling alone, you're probably an adventurous type – so now's the chance to try something out of your comfort zone. Watersports are a good place to start: check out the aptly named Water Sports Tenerife for deals and discounts on jet skiing, fly boarding, stand up paddling and parascending. For something less extreme but still thrilling, head to Los Cristianos harbour for a whale and dolphin spotting tour.

Go on an excursion

If you're excited to meet some new pals, a well-picked tour or day trip is a good idea. There are lots to choose from – try a bus tour to Mount Teide and Masca Valley from Tenerife Sunshine or a full-day jeep safari tour from Tamaran. To stay closer to home, a dinner and show deal from Tenerife Excursions keeps you well fed and entertained in the centre of town.

Embrace your inner child

One thing Tenerife does well is waterparks. There's Siam Park in Costa Adeje which has huge slides, artificial wave machines, rapids and a sea lion island, as well as the chance to relax on Balinese beds at its exclusive Champagne Club. There's also Aqualand nearby, where you'll find spiralling flumes, rushing rapids, giant Jacuzzis and a dolphinarium where displays take place daily.

Eat well

This part of the world is renowned for its Mediterranean cuisine. When travelling alone in Tenerife, you can indulge in locally caught seafood, fruit straight from the tree and exquisite wines. Splash out at El Rincón de Juan Carlos in Los Gigantes, a family-run restaurant specialising in traditional dishes with a twist. Alternatively, head to El Cine in Santa Cruz for a quick bite – there's super fresh octopus, scallops and oysters at great value.

Whatever you decide to do, make the safe, reliable choice with a Tenerife airport transfers from Holiday Extras. In a private car, shared bus or private shuttle, we'll drop you off right at your door.
