But Tenerife is also very well known to discover and enjoy the fascinating underwater world of the Canary Islands. We got to know BOB-Diving. BOB stands for Breathing Observation Bubble and is an underwater scooter for individual use. It offers underwater fun of traditional scuba diving, with much less effort. You have to try this out!

The Teide National Park is located in the centre of Tenerife. It is centered around Mount Teide (3718m) which is the highest mountain of the island. The scenery is simply breathtaking – an entire color palette from the different types of volcanic rock and different plants.

Loro Parque

Loro Parque (Spanish for ‘parrot park’) is a zoo located on the North of the island, near Puerto de la Cruz. The sub-tropical nature reserve is one of the major attractions in Tenerife where you can find a big variety of animals. We spent a whole day in the park and had great fun!
