Revealed the 5 best places/ways to watch the sunset!

There are a lot of beautiful places in Tenerife to watch the sunset, however Club Canary has made an absolute top 5 list just for you! 

  • The 5th place is an easy guess and that’s watching the sunset from one of the beautiful beaches in Tenerife! 
  • The number 4 position on the list is watching the sunset from the village of Los Gigantes which is known for its magnificent cliffs on which you’ll see the light of the sun slowly fading away. 
  • On number 3 we have an extremely daring way of watching the sunset, that is during one of these great quad biking trips in Tenerife! 
  • Then number 2 is an excursion where you’ll watch the sunset from the volcano El Teide while you get a glass of cava to make the most out of this amazing moment, after the sunset you will have dinner in a restaurant followed by stargazing from an extraordinary location! 
  • The winner of the top 5 is a special private boat trip on which you will first go whale watching before stopping in a beautiful bay to have dinner. After you have eaten we cruise towards the sunset, this creates an unreal romantic moment, that’s why many people regularly book this excursion to be able to make an irresistible marriage proposal in Tenerife!

The most impressive sunrise of Spain!

Unfortunately, I may have to disappoint some of you because the secret that Club Canary is going to reveal to you is not partying in one of Tenerife’s clubs until the sun rises. For this unique experience your journey begins in El Teide National Park where you will be amazed by the gorgeous bright stars that will light up the path to the most amazing sunrise in the whole of Spain. The walk to the top of Teide is not easy, but it is definitely worth it! With 3718 meters, El Teide is the highest point of Spain and therefore the best location in all of Spain to watch the sunrise! The top of El Teide can be reached in 2 different ways that you can uncover from here!

  1. Watching the sunset in Tenerife is an exciting happening every time. The most spectacular sunset in Tenerife that we have experienced is during the Teide by night excursion. Watching the sunset from the national park Teide is fantastic, and then stargazing afterwards is definitely a must see.
