We went with part of our team on a trip to Tenerife to get to know this island where we now also provide great sea tours. Kayaking in Tenerife was at the top of our list of things to do on the island.
The five of us are active people who love nature and working out, so kayaking in Tenerife would be an ideal activity for us. We went kayaking with Cao, who owns a watersports center at Playa de las Teresitas.
So we met Cao at his stand on the beach and after putting on some sunscreen, it was time to team up. Each kayak takes two people.
Cao explained we were gonna go kayaking along the cliffs of Playa de las Teresitas. The cliffs were, in fact, impressive, at the foot of the Anaga mountains. We were blessed with almost no wind and a pleasant temperature.
As the kayaking is quite a workout, at the point we were going to turn to go back, we were quite hot so we went for a refreshing dip into the Atlantic. Kayaking is quite a workout, but no worries, Cao will adapt the tour to your pace. Besides, kayaking is very easy to learn and it requires no previous experience.
We did the short kayak tour of about 1 hour, due to time constraints. There’s a tour of 3 hours too. The longer tour departs from Playa de las Teresitas to Playa de Balayo.
There’s also the possibility to rent a kayak on the beach. However, we highly recommend the tour as the instructors grew up in Tenerife themselves and therefore they can tell you everything you need to know about the island!
We really enjoyed the kayak tour and highly recommend it. The combination of working out and sightseeing is the best! Many thanks to Cao and his team for this memorable experience kayaking in Tenerife!
