provides information on services that may be of interest to golfers, such as weather, transport companies and local golf stores. Each page of the guide provides contact details of all golf courses in Tenerife and La Gomera: their web and email, field map, game cards, image gallery and strategic advice on playing the most outstanding holes on each course. It also lets you connect directly to the golf course and hotel webs to make reservations plus it displays the GPS coordinates associated with Google Maps to make transfers easier to different courses and back to the hotel.

The platform has been developed with the idea of providing quality and distinction to the holiday sector and specifically to promoting golf tourism in Tenerife to differentiate the island from competitors, give prestige and enhance the destination’s reputation. Tenerife Golf Guide aims to respond to the demands detected in a study of golf tourism in Tenerife and the magnificent potential of this market sector for the future of the island, which receives nearly 200,000 golf tourists a year.

Thanks to the excellent weather and great facilities, Tenerife is a unique destination in Europe to play golf 365 days a year. Good year on year figures for tourist arrivals of golfers to the island confirm that the brand Tenerife Golf is one of the most attractive, as Tenerife has become the favorite in the Canary Islands for European players.


Whale and dolphin watching in Tenerife all year round

Whale and dolphin watching in Tenerife all year round

I’m on board a beautiful sailing boat, enjoying the amazing experience of watching pilot whales close up. They are impressive, very sociable and they glide smoothly alongside the boat. I think they’re delighted to have some visitors!


Of the 79 whale and dolphin species in the world, 25 are found in the Canary Islands and 21 of them have been spotted in Tenerife’s waters. It’s hard to believe that the chances of seeing pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins are nearly 100%, but it’s true! They live in the waters between the islands of Tenerife and La Gomera and you can usually see them when they come up to the surface to breathe and enjoy the warm rays of sunlight. Watching whales and dolphins in the wild is a wonderful gift you can enjoy in the island all year round thanks to Tenerife’s great weather.

These marine mammals have found paradise in southwest Tenerife, around 3 miles offshore:  crystal clear water, plenty of food, a wind-protected stretch of sea and a mild climate that they love.


There are many relaxing boat excursions with an expert guide to explain interesting facts about the way of life of these incredible creatures that are able to give birth and suckle their offspring underwater.

There are plenty of companies specialising in whale and dolphin watching trips departing from Los Cristianos harbour (Arona), Puerto Colón (Adeje) and Los Gigantes (Santiago del Teide). Ten companies take part in a quality charter created by the Tenerife Tourism Corporation and are committed to maintaining a high quality service and respecting the environment.

If you’re wondering about whale and dolphin care and preservation, it’s great to hear that the Canary Islands Government put in place Decree 178/2000 (6th September 2000) which regulates whale watching activities and lays down strict measures for boats, crew and visitors to respect the natural habitat of these marine mammals and protect them from any disturbance or threat.
