Tenerife fiestas of unforgettable fun

Tenerife fiestas are holidays in Tenerife of all sorts of nature. They are more and more frequented by foreigners because of cheap Tenerife flights.

Also, Tenerife hotels are definitely spoiling tourists more than ever before. They create fiestas or parties by the seasides.

Noisy Party days

Since 2008, no more excessive loud music allowed during fiestas after 2 a.m. That doesn't help much for those who need a good nights sleep for work and live in a tourist hub.

Too much celebrating?

All year round Tenerife fiestas seem to be mind-bogging besides the island's most famous Carnival.

It remains to wonder how there is time left for studying.

Los Realejos a Fiesta leader

Los Realejos leads for its amount of fiestas for the entire Spain. It helps that it has its own fire works productions.

Each of its 20 suburbs don't only celebrate their own church patron days. They also have a holiday dedicated to culture and folk art. There are folk dance holidays, kids street parties, fashion show days, Cine and photography festivals, sports tournaments, you name it. A'Sortija' which means horse race takes place during the important Fiesta de la Cruz (holy cross) on May 3rd. Then all houses display fancy decorated crosses with banners, carpets and flowers. Romerias play a part. The celebrations are too numerous to list them all. You wonder how work is fitted in. However, the people of Realejos think that they have made an art of it to combine both. Then there are May and July holidays, Christmas, Easter and of course a very own carnival.

Paella by the beach

May 4th, the last day of Tenerife fiestas de la Cruz ends with Paella food for all on El Socorro beach. The international para-glider festival by this seaside together with its Paella has been put on a hold for economical reasons.

Lets look at Christmas...

This is the season where many breathtaking Tenerife nativity scenes are displayed by even the most remote mountain hamlet, while the night spectacle of Reyes Magos of Puerto de la Cruz is one of a kind that sums up Christmas.

The capital's modern version can be enjoyed on a giant TV in the big Santa Cruz soccer stadium. While helicopters transport the holy kings there, ships do it in Los Christianos. Not to forget Camels.
