1. Your surf vacation on Tenerife

Tenerife is the largest island of the Canary Islands. It also offers mild climate all year long and perfect conditions for surfing. Whether you are a beginner, an advanced surfer or even a professional surfer - you will find your wave among the long point breaks, fast reef breaks and crisp beach breaks. Both the north and the south of the island get good swells all year long and fulfill any surfer wishes. Apart from surfing, Tenerife also offers a wide range of other activities such as kite surfing and windsurfing. There are wonderful places to discover and especially the evergreen north should be explored sufficiently. Its natural diversity is spectacular. The island of eternal spring is also super inexpensive.

These are our reasons for a surf holiday on Tenerife:

1. Surfing is possible all year round
2. The climate is perfect
3. There are plenty of surf spots waiting for you
4. The island has a beautiful and varied landscape
5. It is very cheap

So what are you waiting for?

2. The best time to travel

While considering when to go to Tenerife, we recommend you to take your surfing level into account. The island is optimal for beginner. If you are an experienced surfer, the best time to travel is between October and March. You will find good waves for you all year round, but it is during these months that the swells are reliable due to recurring storms on the Atlantic.


3. Climate and water temperature

Just like the other Canary Islands, Tenerife is called the island of eternal spring. The temperatures are warm all year long. In general, the north is a little bit more rainy than the south of Tenerife. With average temperatures of around 25 degrees, we recommend to travel to the north between May and September. Especially in the summer months it is sunny and hardly ever rains.
The south is one of the warmest holiday regions all year round and convinces with subtropical climate. In addition, it only rains around 15 days per year. From May to July, the average temperature is 25 degrees. In August, it reaches 30 degrees and even in winter you can still go for a swim in the sea.
Due to this year-round mild climate, the water temperatures hardly fluctuate. With water temperatures of 19° between February and April and 23° from August to October, a 3/2 mm wetsuit is enough for even surfing in winter. In late summer and early autumn, you can even go surfing in board shorts or a surf bikini.

5. The best surf spots

Tenerife's geographical location has a special advantage: Swells hit the islands at full speed, constantly and from all directions. These can reach a remarkable size, especially in winter in the north. On the other coasts, especially in the south, you can look forward to a clean surf.
To give you a better overview, we have listed the top 8 surf spots on Tenerife here:

Playa del Socorro
This surf spot is located on the north coast of the island in Los Realejos. It is considered to be one of the most reliable surf spots on Tenerife, as there are good waves all year round. You should either go here as an experienced surfer or try surfing with a surf instructor.

Playa Jardín And Playa Martiánez
On the north coast of Tenerife you will find the best conditions for beginners and intermediates. The two surf spots are located in the region of Puerto de la Cruz. The entry into the water is easy and you will see a beautiful black sand beach. In addition, there is usually no drift and the waves are rather small.

Playa San Juan in Bajamar
You will mostly meet locals here. As there is no sandy beach, you should be careful when getting in and out. The waves at this spot are mostly medium and therefore good for experienced surfers.

Playa de los Troches
Here you will usually find waves even when there are hardly any somewhere else. However, the conditions are challenging, so beginners are better off not surfing here.

Almaciga and Benijo
This surf spot is located next to Taganana. Due to the strong drift, beginners should not get into the water here. However, if you already know how to surf, this is the right place for you!

Igueste de San Andrés
When conditions are good, you will find left-breaking waves here. These are especially liked by the locals. You should definitely surf here if you want to have a natural landscape around you.

Porís de Abona
The spot is suitable for beginners as well as advanced surfers. There is a surf school where you can rent equipment and book a surf camp.

Playa de las Américas
Playa de las Américas is probably the most famous surf spot on Tenerife. There are many surf schools here and the beaches are easily accessible via the long beach promenade. The waves at Playa del Bunker (El Guincho) and Playa de las Américas are especially recommended here.

6. The most beautiful places


Teide

At 3718 m, Mount Teide is the highest point in Spain and the third highest volcano in the world. If you are on Tenerife and want to explore the island off the surfboard, you should definitely visit the Teide. You can reach it in two ways: By cable railway or by foot. In both cases, the landscape and rock formations around the Teide will amaze you. You will also see the well-known rock "Roque Cinchado".

Puerto de la Cruz
The city of Puerto de la Cruz is located on the north coast of Tenerife and offers much to discover. The beaches enchant with dark volcanic sand. Along the coast you will find the outdoor swimming pool Lago Martiánez filled with seawater. There is also an old harbour with a customs house and a historic fortification. In addition, in the west of the city you can visit the Loro Parque zoo, which is considered to be one of the most prestigious zoological institutions in the world. The old town is also definitely worth a visit.
 
Anaga
The Anaga mountain range was formed by volcanic activity about 9 million years ago. But the mountains are anything but grey or monotonous: They shine in green colours, with laurel forests and hiking trails everywhere. In addition, you will come across many viewpoints and can even swim in lakes amid deep valleys. The Anaga Landscape Park is located in the immediate vicinity of the capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife and is a biosphere reserve. Many animals and plants can be found here. A breathtaking landscape awaits you.

Paisaje Lunar
It's a bit difficult to travel to the moon. Paisaje Lunar, also known as the Lunar Landscape, is easier to access. The landscape is full of white shapes. Columns were formed by erosion from pumice and ash. The beautiful view offers many places to sit and relax, and the hike to it is also beautiful. After starting at the municipality of Vilaflor, it goes through a forest of pine trees that is pithy and well signposted. Of course, you can also get to Paisaje Lunar by car and park either at Pista Madre del Aqua or directly at the entry point.

Vilaflor
If you decide to do a full hike to Paisaje Lunar, we recommend that you take time to explore the municipality of Vilaflor. The village of Vilaflor is one of the most beautiful places in Tenerife - and it is even the highest in Spain. It is a testament to tranquillity and culture, far removed from the trappings of the tourist centres and located in the Parque Natural de la Corona Forestal. You can visit the Casa del Marqués museum house, the old water mill and discover vast vineyard landscapes.

San Andrés
San Andrés is located in the north-east of Tenerife. The special thing about the village is not only the beautiful beach Playa Las Teresitas, which is right next to it. The beach was made in the 70s with sand from the Sahara. The fact that the colorful houses are completely built on a hillside also speaks for itself. One of the sights here is the Catholic church, which was built in 1505 and is one of the oldest churches in the Canary Islands. There are also numerous bars and restaurants here. The fishing village invites you to enjoy fresh fish with a glass of wine.

Santa Cruz de Tenerife
The capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife has a beautiful old town. In it you can find, for example, the Church of the Conception of the Virgin Mary from the colonial period and the Museum of Nature and Human. The Plaza de España square invites you to go shopping, as it is directly connected to the famous Calle Castillo shopping street. The port city is bursting with Art Nouveau architecture and enchants with avenues, sculptures, monuments and beautiful green spaces. It is home to the largest shipping port in Spain. The carnival in Santa Cruz is also a particular source of amazement. The city offers many restaurants and bars, but also flea markets and, for example, the market Nuestra Senora de Africa. Here you can find many exotic foods.

7. Other activities

Of course, on Tenerife you can not only go surfing, but also do many other activities. Whether snorkelling, long skate, kayaking, climbing, stand up paddle, diving or boat trips. There is certainly something for everyone here. Many surf camps support you in your search or offer these activities themselves.

8. Transport

Another good argument why you should go surfing on Tenerife is the cheap flights. Take some time and compare different airlines before you leave, then you will quickly notice that you can make a bargain. To be mobile on the island, it is definitely worth renting a car. You can get them very quickly and conveniently either directly at the airport or in the city. The good thing about them is that they are very cheap, so you have the chance to drive to any surf spot you feel like. However, most surf camps also offer an airport transfer, which should allow you to arrive stress-free and comfortably. In case you want to take your own car, there is also the chance to come by ferry from Spain or Portugal.

9. Food

The food on the Canary Islands is not only influenced by the culture of Spain, but also enjoys influences from South America and Africa. This is due to the fact that many South Americans live in Tenerife and Africa is the continent next to the Canary Islands. As the food here is super tasty, we highly recommend you to try the national dishes. These include papas arrugadas with mojo which are small, salty potatoes with green (coriander) or red (paprika and chilli) sauce. You can also taste a lot of fresh fish and seafood here. But stews and soups are also typically found on menus, which often consist of chickpeas, corn and meat.

10. Price range

The price range for surf camps on Tenerife is between 140€ - 365€ per week. As you can see, even with a small budget, Tenerife offers an unforgettable holiday. If you have any questions about the prices, please feel free to contact us.

11. Accommodation

When you book a surf camp, you are usually also offered accommodation. This can vary from simple hostel shared rooms to luxury private suits. Due to the wide range and choice, you can find something that suits exactly your taste. The Twin Fin Surfcamp, for example, offers its visitors a whole house with cozy relaxation rooms, a swimming pool with a sea view, barbecue and a large garden. The Endless Summer House also offers an unforgettable experience. It is luxuriously furnished and you can choose between a Sunset Suite, a Family Room and two super chic Dorms. Of course, you can book your accommodation independently of the surf camp and according to your own wishes. This is what the surf school Atlantik Surf specializes in. It's worth mentioning that they are super mobile. They not only pick you up from your accommodation, but also drive you to the beaches with the best surfing conditions that day.
