WHERE TO SEE THE BEST SUNSETS IN TENERIFE:
1. Playa de Benijo:
If you are looking for a romantic sunset in a natural setting, Playa de Benijo (main image) is the perfect place. Located on the northeast coast of Tenerife, this black sand beach offers a relaxed and picturesque atmosphere. As the sun bids farewell, you can listen to the sound of the waves and enjoy the view of the surrounding rocks and cliffs.
2. Mount Teide:
The Teide National Park, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, is home to Spain's highest peak, El Teide. Ascending Teide to witness the sunset is a unique experience. As the sun sinks behind the horizon, the changing colours of the sky are reflected in the volcanic rock formations, creating a spectacular view. Remember to obtain a permit to visit El Teide at sunset, as the number of visitors is limited.
3. Mirador de la Garañona:
This viewpoint is located in the municipality of San Miguel de Abona and offers a stunning panoramic view of the south coast of Tenerife. From here, you can enjoy a sunset overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the neighbouring island of Gran Canaria. It's a lesser-known but equally impressive spot to watch the sunset.
4. Mirador de Jardina:
In the north of Tenerife, the Mirador de Jardina offers a unique perspective to appreciate the sunset. This elevated viewpoint allows you to see the sun hide behind the island of La Palma, creating a breathtaking view over the ocean. It's a tranquil and perfect place to savour the serenity while witnessing the spectacular sunset.
5. Los Gigantes:
Nestled in the southwest of Tenerife, the cliffs of Los Gigantes are an iconic spot to witness the sun dip below the horizon. These impressive cliffs, soaring up to 800 metres above sea level, provide a spectacular backdrop for an unforgettable sunset. You can enjoy the view from Los Gigantes Beach or take a boat trip for an even more breathtaking experience.
