If there is one thing the island of Tenerife stands out for, it is its landscapes. From its beaches to its mountains, the island has some of the best panoramic views ever seen. Can you imagine enjoying a sunset in one of these wonderful places? Today on our blog we bring you an authentic #KualaExperience, five places from which you can see the best sunset on the island of Tenerife. Let’s get started!
El Teide and its surroundings, the best place on the island to end the day
Without a doubt, this spot had to top our list. Whether from its cable car, the viewpoints that surround it, or its peak for the more daring, this is one of the best places to say goodbye to a long day.
From the cable car you can see a panoramic view of the islands surrounding Tenerife, the mountainous landscape that encompasses this National Park and in the distance the immensity of the sea. If you don’t want to climb that high and prefer to visit a viewpoint, we recommend the Ortuño viewpoint, from where you can watch the sun gradually disappear into the sea of clouds. You won’t forget this experience!
Sunset from Los Gigantes and its cliffs
Another of the best ways to see the sunset on the island of Tenerife is from the sea, yes you read that right, from the sea. One of the most acclaimed experiences on the island is its famous whale-watching excursion, which can be done by renting a boat for a couple of hours or the whole day.
For those who decide to take the boat for the whole day, you can enjoy one of the best sunsets in the world, because in very few places on the planet can you watch the sunset from a boat, with cetaceans around you and with gigantic cliffs behind you. It’s quite an adventure!
A break after a day’s shopping in Puerto de la Cruz
How could we talk about Tenerife and not say anything about its beaches? In Puerto de la Cruz we can find Playa Jardín where you can sit on the promenade or on the sand and enjoy the last moment of the day with your family, partner or friends.
Another of the best spots to watch the sunset is from the Paseo de San Telmo or the Plaza de Europa, all of them facing the sea. You will be surprised!
But if what you want is to sit quietly with a drink in your hand, in Puerto de la Cruz you have at your disposal several terraces, most of them on the roofs of several hotels, from where you can watch the sunset with the best atmosphere. What better plan after a day of shopping in our Kualalumpur Store in Puerto de la Cruz?
Anaga and its incredible Benijo beach will leave you speechless
Photographers from all over the world travel to Tenerife to take a souvenir of this spot. Benijo is one of the most amazing beaches on the island of Tenerife. Given its rocky shape and the great cliffs that surround it, watching the sunset sitting on its black sand is an experience that is totally worthwhile. On the other hand, for the more daring there is always the option of taking a swim while the sun goes down, it is quite a spectacle.
In addition to visiting this beach, you can also visit the beaches of Almáciga and Roque de Las Bodegas, as the distance between them is short. No doubt, whichever one you go to, you will be surprised with a 10 out of 10 sunset.

We continue with the beaches of Tenerife, and in the municipality of Arona you will find beaches such as Playa de Las Vistas, La Pinta and El Camisón. These beaches stand out from the rest due to their unbeatable views. During the day you can enjoy its crystal clear waters and in the late afternoon, its orange and purple colours will leave you speechless.
Moreover, on this occasion, not only are its sunsets surprising, but from this point of the island you can start the day with its incredible golden sunrise.
