LNOF Guide to Tenerife
Attracting over 10 million visitors per year, this balmy island is a solid choice for a hen party. Tenerife’s captivating golden beaches, consistent tropical climate and lively nightlife scene will immediately lure you in – then, our hen party activities on the largest Canary Island will have you wondering why you ever considered anywhere else. From wet and wild days out at high-end water parks, to glamorous cocktails in some of the area’s finest VIP beach bars – our Tenerife hen party activity list will have you spoilt for choice in this adults’ playground.
Playa de las Americas is your main hen do destination, jam-packed with huge bars and nightclubs, such as the Papagayo Beach nightclub and the cheesy classic disco, Tramps. The sophisticated older sister, Los Cristianos, boasts more traditional boozers and authentic Sangria-saturated Spanish bars, to fiesta the night away in a sophisticated manner.
Once you get past the purpose built holiday resorts like Las Americas - littered with sunburnt Brits and tourist souvenir shops on every corner - you’ll uncover a historical and culturally diverse side to Tenerife just waiting to be explored. With tropical forest walks, designer shop struts and quaint surrounding colonial towns – this island may not be at all what you first anticipated.
The loud and proud Carnaval de Santa Cruz, a massive pre-Lent festival with traditional music, parades, dancing and bright costumes, is a must see if you’re celebrating in February. If you get the chance, it’s also worth visiting the gorgeous, snow-draped Pico del Teide; as Spain’s tallest mountain (at 3,718m), this peak has fast become a hiker’s paradise. Whether you’re up for the hike, or would prefer to stay at ground level with a glass of bubbly in hand – Tenerife sure is tenerif-ic.
