Things to do in Tenerife in July
Teide National Park
A holiday in Tenerife isn't complete without a trip to Teide National Park. At 3,718m tall, Teide is the highest peak in Spain and the third tallest volcano in the world. July is a great time to visit this park, which can sometimes be closed in the winter months due to snowy weather. There are several excursions available from companies throughout the island who pick travellers up from their hotel and transport them to the Teide National Park.
The drive up to the peak passes through several pine forests and traditional villages which make the journey alone worth it. When you arrive at the park you'll have the chance to take a cable car to the peak of the volcano, providing it's not closed due to high winds.
The Lago Martianez swimming pools in Puerto de la Cruz are a great place for the whole family to spend a sunny afternoon in Tenerife. Open every day from 10am until 6pm in winter and from 10am until 7am during summer, this attraction is made up of seven swimming pools, including a large lake and several children's pools. There is also a low-cost restaurant, kiosk and a number of bars. After dark, Lago Martianez is transformed into one of the hottest nightspots in the north, complete with the town's casino located under the lake.
