TRAVEL SMART AROUND TENERIFE
The caravan has proved to be one of the smartest tools to explore Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands. Surrounded by Atlantic waters, it is one of the most important tourist destinations in Spain with a wealth of history, leisure and spectacular natural landscapes. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Teide National Park offers stunning views of the third largest volcano in the world, rising up from its base, known as the Teide. The park is home to a vast biodiversity and, due to its similarity in environment and geology to those of Mars, it is used as a reference point for those studying the Red Planet.
Its rugged island orography and climate diversity make for a wide variety of landscapes, such as the Cliffs of Los Gigantes, with vertical walls and semi desert areas in the southern part of the island, volcanic environments, such as the Lava Pyramids at Güímar, volcanic landscape of La Rasca, and mountain ranges, such as Anaga and Teno, scored with deep ravines. For sun, sea and sand, the choices are endless. The north of the island has an abundance of pebble or black sand beaches, whereas the south and southeast offers beaches with finer, lighter white sand.
After a healthy dose of nature, head to San Cristóbaldela Laguna for a stroll through the Old Town, which is a beautiful example of 15th century Colonial architecture. Party lovers shouldn’t miss the island’s trademark Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnivals, which are the most important in the world, along with those of Rio.
Fancy and a Bit More Luxury…
There are a few campsites/caravan parks to be found in Tenerife. These offer facilities a far cry from the so-called "wild camping”, found at the campsites below.
The sites mentioned next, by comparison, offer a huge range of amenities and, as well as camping in tents, offer parking space for motor homes and caravans, where you can connect up to the electricity supply.
Needless to say, this type of "camping” doesn’t come free!
Situated in the Las Galletas area, this huge, luxury campsite can accommodate 2,500 tents and 250 caravans/motorhomes. Operating since 1989, it is open 365 days of the year.
Roja. This is a similar type of site, but considerably smaller. Found right on the beach at El Medano, it has room for 68 tents and 25 caravans.
Roughly in the La Laguna area, this site is just 20 metres from the sea and also has the distinction of being set amongst the breathtaking mountainous scenery of Punta del Hidalgo. It can accommodate 15 tents and has a separate area for caravans and motorhomes, which also contains accommodation in the form of wood cabins.
Wild Camping in Tenerife – beauty and adventure
Camping in Tenerife must be done legally. It is not only prohibited on beaches, but any areas coming under the Protected Natural Spaces Act of the Canary Islands – in other words, all
nature reserves and national parks. But, fear not, you campers out there! Tenerife has proper, legal, designated camping areas.
To use these special camping areas, you have to obtain an official permition from the Island Council at least seven days in advance. They are free, but, to get one, you have to turn up at the appropriate office in person.
You have to go to the Tenerife Council building named Medio Ambiente, Paisaje, Deportes(Department of Environment, Landscape and Sport), in La Laguna. It’s a red-bricked building tacked onto the side of the large sports stadium,Pabellón Insular Santiago Martín, which is right next to the TF-5 north motorway.
There is currently a way to obtain a permission online, go to Cabildo de Tenerife. From this page, click on "Acampada”. This then takes you to a page listing all the campsites. Click on the one you want and the next page will have a calendar for you to pick the date(s).
Facilities at these campsites vary considerably. There are some with next to nothing, some with the basic necessities like running water, suitable for drinking, car parking space and picnic areas, then the really luxurious ones with barbecue areas, showers and toilets. Most have a "recreational area” next to them, the quality of which can also vary a great deal. You are restricted to a maximum stay of seven nights.
