If you haven't heard of Siam Park's gigantic water park, then it’s time you did. Treat yourself to a fun-filled day out in Tenerife. Siam Park has been open since 2008 in Costa Adejo in the south of Tenerife. There is something for everyone spread over 185,000 square kilometres. A wide variety of water attractions have been imported from all over the world to provide you with the best experience out there. The construction of the huge park, which is modelled on the old kingdom of Siam (better known as Thailand), took four years from start to finish. The entire park radiates and Asian ambience. The Royal Palace revives the history of the Kingdom of Siam. Come across huge animal figures, including elephants and dragons, which are the icing on the cake when it comes to Asian flair.
The waves in the wave pool are up to three meters high. There is also a surf school, but you can also surf there without attending a course. Siam Park has 14 different water slides, one of which is 28 metres high and lets you slide directly into a world full of fish. Float down the river on massive rubber rings while taking in the views. You can see everything from the amphitheatre!
There are no limits to the leisure activities available in Tenerife – sort out something special on holiday and get to know the island better than you could have imagined in a short space of time.
Boat trips in Tenerife
Get closer than ever to whales and dolphins in the wild. Glass-bottom boats in Tenerife take you to the ocean in a whole new way. Find out what’s lurking below the surface without getting wet. If you’d rather sit down than stand up, then sit down and watch the images and videos shot there and then on the monitors whilst you soak up the rays on deck. See the sea and get up close and personal with nature on a tour in Puerto Colón on the Costa Adeja.
If you fancy watching dolphins jumping and diving in their natural habitat. Go sailing in Tenerife with your friends and family near Los Gigantes and Masca. Drop the anchor in a blissful bay and take a dip in the crystal-clear water with a much-needed break in the cool and calm sea.
Sport and activity holidays in Tenerife
Discover the capital Santa Cruz on a Segway in a super-speedy way. They go like a bat out of hell, you can drive comfortably through narrow alleys and sit back and enjoy the ride as the guide fills you in on information about the local area.
Have you ever driven a water buggy before? If not, then you should give it a whirl. Hop on the wicked water vessel and travel out to visit the resident dolphins. It is even possible to attach a GoPro to the front of the water buggy and get some pretty pictures of Cala Adeja along the way.
Explore the untouched nature in Tenerife on a Jet-Ski ride. There are still many spots that are under nature protection and have been kept in their original position. Jet skiing is also one of the most popular water sports activities in Tenerife as it’s fast-paced and above all fun. You do not need a sport boat driving licence and can already drive from the age of 16. A professional and experienced guide is always with you.
Sightseeing and culture in Tenerife
Explore the capital Santa Cruz with the “Hop-on Hop-off City Sightseeing Bus”. Get on and off as much as you like for up to 24 hours. This means having the freedom to see and do exactly as you please in Santa Cruz. You can take part in various bus tours outside of the city too. Half-day or full-day tours let you get to the heart of the island and see a side to Tenerife that is usually kept well-hidden and only enjoyed by the locals.
Adventure in Tenerife
With the small and powerful quads, you can get around on the island of Tenerife with ease. Book one of the fixed tours e.g. the Teide Tour or make your own one up with your friends or family. You can even combine an individual tour with another holiday activity like jet-skiing or a mountain bike tour through the lush landscape of Teide National Park. The tours also include off-road routes where you can experience the true nature of the island up close.
Jeep Safari Tours in Tenerife are a blast! Take a private and exclusive jeep tour to either Teide National Park or a Teide-Masca tour. Perhaps an island tour with a 4x4 jeep will be more up your alley? Safety always come first; all jeeps have a roof to protect you from falling stones and the sun!
Dinner and shows in Tenerife
The dinner show "The Sound of Musicals" with award-winning singers and highly talented dancers will take your breath away. Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday you can get your musical fix from the likes of Chicago, Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Joseph, Hairspray and the ever-popular Grease. Some new additions to the theatre are Disney’s Frozen and Riverdance.
Dinner begins at around 8pm and about an hour later the artists jump on stage and perform like there’s no tomorrow. The awesome combination of dinner and a show is an ideal option for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries or the like.
There is another dinner show which is worth watching, the marvellous “Music Hall Tavern Show”. It is a magnificent mix of singing and comedy. They have really made the most of the humour in the characters and bring the films to life on stage. This show is hilarious and promises to be the funniest night on your holiday.
Road trips in Tenerife
There is a lot to see in Tenerife and you can see a lot more if you’re in a car. There are idyllic, small villages to discover, which can be easily reached by car. If you prefer to explore Tenerife on your own without a guide, we recommend that you first put together a list of the places you want to see in Tenerife. Some of the cars in rental car companies have their own Satnavs, so that the routes to the top destinations can be saved before the trip.
If you have access to the internet on your phone or tablet, then you can easily get around with Google Maps. Join guided buggy, quad or jeep tours and check out the best of the island in a line of wicked vehicles.
