If you are already planning your future trip to Tenerife, one of the things you should do to organize yourself better and to not forget anything, is this list of items you should carry in your suitcase to enjoy every experience this wonderful island provides.
If you forget something you always have the option to buy what you need once you are on the island. But it is always better to be proactive and save a few Euros on your trip and make the most of the time spent in Tenerife.
To do this, we make it easy with a list of things that should not miss in your suitcase for your trip to Tenerife.
For the beach
As you know, Tenerife is full of beaches which you will want to enjoy. In order to do this you will have to have in your suitcase the following elements:
It is imperative that you protect your skin from the sun, especially if you are going to be on the beach in the noon hours, when its rays are strongest.
Take care of your skin, which will accompany you throughout your life, and do not bring sunburns as a souvenir of Tenerife. We would like that all the memories you take home with you from the island are positive.
To do this, do not forget the sunscreen, a graduation appropriate to your skin type.
If you want to enjoy the seabed, and be able to see the beauty that is also hidden under the waters of Tenerife, diving glasses will be an essential element for this.
If you are not satisfied with just going down a few meters and want to go deeper into the ocean, you can contact some of the companies that offer this service at the coast of Tenerife.
In addition, in Puerto de la Cruz there is a great underwater wealth with spectacular areas to enjoy, which we already talked about in our blog, in the post “Sea beds of Puerto de la Cruz “.
If diving is one of your passions, do not forget to visit this content and contact companies in the area who offer you an expedition for these underwater areas, so you can do it safely.
Obviously, the bathing suit is also an essential element in your suitcase to travel to Tenerife.
In certain natural pools or bathing areas where there is no sand, but stones, good flip-flops can be very useful to enter the water without your feet suffering.
Do not forget to include them in your suitcase if you are going to visit some of these places where the stones are the protagonist element. Your feet will thank you.
Towel to lie on the sand
If you want to be more comfortable and to dry yourself when you come out of the water, besides not being covered with sand everywhere, the beach towel will help you.
For the mountains
If you are one of the people who like hiking and would like to comfortably walk in the best shoes on some of the wonderful trails that you can enjoy in the north of Tenerife, then you should not forget to put the mountain boots in your suitcase.
Although many of the simpler trails can be walked with a normal sports footwear, if you want to take some more complex trails, or simply have a footwear more suitable for the terrain, do not forget to wear the mountain boots.
A small backpack to carry with you on your hike, could also be very useful to transport at least water and some food for your escursion, plus the sunscreen that is also advisable to take with you on any outdoor activity.
A cap to keep your head from suffering too much in the sun and protect you a little more.
Although in Tenerife it is always good weather and the climate is pleasant: If you are going into the mountains and even more if you visit the Teide to watch the sunset and the stars when it is totally dark, you will be happy to have a good coat to protect you from the cold, when you are spotting the Universe from the National Park of the Cañadas del Teide. So you will be able to focus on enjoying the show and do not worry about the cold.
For the trip in general
A good camera
If you want to save the beautiful places that you will visit on your trip to Tenerife somewhere else than in your memory, and also the experiences of this island, you should not forget to take with you a good camera.
Many mobile phones already have built-in high resolution cameras, but if you want to make even more spectacular photos or especially better night shots, it may be that the camera on your mobile phone is not enough for that.
Make sure you bring a camera with you which fulfills the expectations of clarity and quality so you can save the best shots of your trip to Tenerife.
