Green and refreshing Tenerife: we are going north!

Published on

A continent in the shape of an island - this is how Tenerife is often described. Craggy rocks, the Atlantic Ocean with its black beaches and primeval forests characterise the largest island of the Canary Islands. As part of this sustainable destination, the OCÉANO Health Spa Hotel in Punta del Hidalgo, on the northeastern tip of the island, offers three summer fitness and relaxation activities that our readers should not miss.

Walking along the Costa del Hidalgo Trail

This walk takes you always next to the sea and the rugged coastline. Passing the Punta del Hidalgo lighthouse, a new architectural landmark of Tenerife, a café and lots of street art to discover, you finally reach the San Juanito hermitage. Here all the accessible paths end and your view can stretch freely over the Atlantic and the rocky coastline to the "Roque de los dos Hermanos", the natural symbol of Punta del Hidalgo and the Anaga massif with its rugged peaks.

Hiking in the Anaga Biosphere Reserve and Teide National Park

Laurel, ferns and narrow paths lure hikers just a few hundred metres from the OCÉANO Health Spa Hotel. The mountain, usually shrouded in mist and preserved in its most primitive form, evokes thoughts of fairy tales and myths. In stark contrast is the landscape of the Teide National Park. This park is characterised by volcanic activity and Mount Teide, which towers above all else. Those wishing to climb the third highest volcano in the world must apply for a permit up to three months in advance. This can be easily applied for on the national park's website. However, as only 200 permits are issued per day, it can also be difficult to get one in August. An alternative way to explore the rugged landscape of the volcanic region is on trail number 11. Numerous other trails criss-cross the national park and offer glimpses into the geological history of the area. 

Wellness with thalassotherapy and time for yourself at the Health Spa of the OCÉANO

The sustainable health and wellness hotel OCEAN stands on a ledge of this Atlantic island. From the outside it is an imposing presence, inside a small retreat that promises absolute tranquillity. Above all, solo travellers and couples feel comfortable here and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and the sea view from every room. The main focus of our Spa is the power of the Atlantic. In addition to salt water, mainly salt, seaweed and sea mud are used, which unfold their beneficial properties in the treatments. In addition, the thalassotherapy pool, the infinity pool with sea view and the natural saltwater pool invite you to swim and relax in them.
