Summer is a few days away, and although on the Canary Islands we enjoy a constant spring, the slight difference in temperature and longer hours of leisure available for the majority of the population make it a special season. You can enjoy an even more festive atmosphere and live certain experiences that will only be available in summer, or are more advisable to do at this time of year.
1- Start with the bonfires of San Juan
There is no better event to welcome the beginning of summer in Tenerife than to enjoy the magical night of the bonfires of San Juan. Crowds of people go out into the street at night, especially in coastal areas, with bonfires to try to eliminate the bad moments of life and attract the good vibrations for the rest of the year. With rituals such as taking a night swim, jump the embers from the bonfires and burn bad memories in them.
A night that is lived with a special magic in places like Puerto de la Cruz, where the spacious and beautiful setting of Playa Jardín make it an ideal place to meet friends and families and spend the night by the sea enjoying a festive atmosphere
2- Practice water sports
The greater chance of perfect weather and taking advantage of the fact that the waters at this time of year are usually calmer and warm, make summer the perfect time to enjoy certain water sports, such as kayaking, canoeing or diving .
In Puerto de la Cruz you will find many companies that will offer you the possibility to practice these activities at sea. In addition, near the coasts of Puerto de la Cruz there are some spectacular seabeds, of which we have already spoken on other occasions in our blog.
Get in shape, refresh yourself and live an unforgettable experience at the same time, taking advantage of the many possibilities offered by the benevolent nature that surrounds the island of Tenerife.
3- A cocktail near the sea
Enjoy a refreshing drink or a cocktail by the sea, on warm summer nights in Tenerife. Puerto de la Cruz has many bars where you can refresh yourself or ask for a delicious cocktail to live a fun summer night with your friends or family, and if you wish to continue the party until long hours of the night.
A perfect environment that puts at your disposal everything you need to have fun during your vacation in Puerto de la Cruz.
4- Live adventures
Perhaps because of the good climate that can be enjoyed in summer and not being so busy with the daily routine, in the summer season it seems that our body asks us to live more adventures and discover new experiences.
Some of the adventures that we propose for your summer in Tenerife is the one to visit inhospitable places in the island, that will overtake you. For example, you could visit the famous traffic light of Igueste, and walk along its path until you reach it, to discover this abandoned monument with a history that is worth knowing and despite its state of ruin, continues to impact.
If you want more adventure, even taking one of the other paths of the trail you can reach the hidden and paradisiacal beach of Antequera, which can only be reached by foot or boat, and stay all day on a long natural beach, with little company because the access is very limited by its geography.
5- Fiestas in the villages in Tenerife
The summer is also a marked date where many towns liven up the weekends with fiestas where, taking advantage of the good weather and the desire to have a good time, they organize parties for the enjoyment of its inhabitants and of citizens of the whole island, as well as tourists.
Among the most popular festivities of the summer are the festivities on the occasion of the Virgen del Carmen, in July, or the crazy Fiesta de los Corazones, also known as the Pamela de Tejina Festival, which takes place at the end of August. As well as in the south of Tenerife, where are usually parties in the small town of Porís, or El Medano.
