  1. Viewpoints of the Teide National Park: Located in the heart of Tenerife, the viewpoints of the Teide National Park offer a privileged perspective from an elevated position to contemplate a unique sunset. From these strategic points, such as the Los Poleos viewpoint, you can enjoy the majesty of Mount Teide and the changing tones of the earth and sky at sunset. The combination of the volcanic rock and the colours of the horizon creates a surreal landscape. Furthermore, if you decide to stay until night falls, you will be able to enjoy the stars in their maximum splendour, as the National Park has ideal conditions for night-time astronomical observation.
  2. Benijo beach: In the north of the island, Benijo Beach is a paradisiacal spot to enjoy an unforgettable sunset. This secluded beach is surrounded by impressive cliffs that plunge into the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Here you can watch the sun fade into the horizon, creating a spectacle of light and shadow over the sea. Remember to exercise caution if you decide to go for a swim due to the powerful waves. However, just being on the shore and appreciating the panoramic view is worth the trip. Also, on the way to Benijo Beach, you can discover majestic landscapes with views of the Teide volcano, the numerous banana plantations and the ocean.
  3. Los Gigantes: Located on the west coast of Tenerife, the cliffs of Los Gigantes are a natural wonder not to be missed at sunset. These imposing rock formations rise from the sea to dizzying heights, creating a breathtaking landscape. Whether from the Archipenque viewpoint or from one of the many bars and restaurants in the area, you can enjoy incredible views as the sun slowly dips below the horizon. The combination of the warm colours of the sunset with the silhouette of La Gomera (and sometimes El Hierro and La Palma) creates a postcard-worthy image.
  4. El Sauzal: The charming village of El Sauzal, located at an altitude of 300 metres in the north of Tenerife, offers a privileged view of the sunset. In and around the small square of San Pedro, you will find several typical restaurants known as "guachinches" with terraces from where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the ocean. As well as watching the sunset show, you can stroll through the gardens, visit the local church and explore the museums, immersing yourself in the charm of this picturesque Canarian village.
  5. A boat trip:What better way to enjoy the sunset than from the sea? Tenerife offers you several options to embark on a maritime adventure at the end of the day. Joining a boat tour will allow you to travel along the southwest coast, where you will be able to observe seabirds and cetaceans in their natural habitat while marvelling at the sunset from a unique perspective. This experience is unforgettable and relaxing, allowing you to experience an absolute sense of freedom.
