Many all-inclusive hotels have snorkeling facilities right outside their doors. Then relax on a sun lounger, order a very sweet cocktail and take a dip in the afternoon on repeat!

Admittedly, Tenerife has a somewhat bad reputation. As if only old people spend the winter on the largest island of the Canary Islands and you end up among a gang of Flemish Benidorm bastards anyway. Do not be afraid. Because this is also where the racing talents of the country gather and train. Carnival is celebrated in February. with conviction. The island has earned an entry in the Guinness Book of Records because no less than 200,000 locals enjoy a massive outdoor dance party together. Latinofibes is everywhere, and a real folk festival.

This is still a top destination in January, March and April. Conquer Mount Teide, rent a car and cruise the island, take a surfing lesson, stroll along the beach and explore Santa Cruz de Tenerife with the sun in your eyes. It shouldn’t be more.
