What to do in Tenerife at Easter

In this exciting text, you will discover a variety of unmissable experiences and activities to make the most of your Easter holidays in Tenerife. From spiritual celebrations to exciting island adventures, we invite you to explore all the wonders this destination has in store for you – immerse yourself in an unforgettable Semana Santa in Tenerife!

Celebrating Easter in Tenerife will not only strengthen your connection with God, but also give you the opportunity to live unique experiences on our beautiful island. Although in Spain we do not follow the traditions of North America with eggs and rabbits, we know how to celebrate and experience spirituality in a special way.

Discover the Best Easter Plans in Tenerife

Although these days are favourable for spiritual reflection, in Tenerife we also immerse ourselves in sun and adventure.

The island offers a variety of options for enjoying Semana Santa. We recommend visiting the charming natural swimming pools along the coast and taking the children to have fun.

Some quiet beaches become meeting points for friends and adventurers. Explore volcanic sandy beaches, try water sports and admire the stunning coastal scenery.

But, without a doubt, the most sought-after experience during Easter Week is to opt for boat hire in Tenerife, a choice that offers much more than just a simple sea trip. As you sail the ocean waters, you are immersed in a setting full of serenity and wonder. What’s more, the possibility of spotting whales and dolphins adds a touch of magic to the journey, creating unforgettable memories to share with your loved ones during this special holiday season.

Enjoy Easter Sunday

This day marks the end of Lent and fills us with joy for the forgiveness that Jesus’ sacrifice brings us. In Tenerife, we celebrate with a feast including local delicacies and desserts. Use the occasion to raise your prayers and commit yourself to an honest life, as required by God the Father.

Some festivals during Easter week in Tenerife

Holy Week in Tenerife is marked by important ceremonies in towns such as Adeje, La Laguna, Güímar and La Orotava.

In Adeje, on Good Friday, locals immerse themselves in a two-hour re-enactment of the last hours of Christ. The event is family-friendly but includes graphic scenes such as the crucifixion.

In La Laguna, the Magna Procession is held at 17:00 on Good Friday, with solemn participants dressed in colourful robes and carrying large crosses.

The Procession of Silence in La Laguna, at 10 p.m. on the same day, is a moving event with the street lamps extinguished and only candles illuminating the silent marchers.

The Semana Santa events in Güímar are notable for their impressive processions with elaborate religious figures.

La Orotava, known for its historic old town, features processions throughout the week, culminating in a dramatic re-enactment of the “Santo Entierro de Cristo” on Friday at 17.00 hours.

The Semana Santa Floral de Guía de Isora is a unique event featuring handcrafted floral displays depicting the journey of Christ and attracts more and more visitors each year. The event takes place in the historic centre between Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday.

Now that you know the wonders that Tenerife has to offer during Holy Week and Easter, it’s time to design the perfect all-inclusive plan for you. If you are interested in renting a boat, do not hesitate to contact us; we have options for large and small groups.

I hired the atlanca boat as a surprise for my husbands 40th birthday and it was honestly the best day and lots of fun. Easy to book, when we arrived Patrick did the paperwork and explained everything then Fran gave us all the safety information on how to ride the boat. Everything was provided and additional special touches were much appreciated. They were both great, really friendly and put us at ease. We had 3 hours booked and we got the full time, everything excellent. Highly recommended. Thank you

Alquilamos una excursión para ver cetáceos y dar un paseo de 3h. En general la experiencia estuvo bien. Toda la gestión de reserva fue fácil y el trato con Bananapalmbay fue un gusto.
Al llegar al barco tuvimos alguna confusión con lo acordado, pero tras comunicarse la empresa del barco con Bananapalmbay se solucionó y pudimos disfrutar del viaje. Además vimos ballenas piloto.

My partner and I rented a boat for 4 hours from Jan Daniel and we had the best day! By far our favourite experience of our whole holiday. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking to rent a boat to do your own exploring along the southern coast of Tenerife. 5* experience!

Ich habe mit dieser Gesellschaft 2 tolle Touren gemacht. Die Teide Nationalpark Tour mit Masca, war klasse, sowohl Guide als auch Busfahrer waren toll. Viel information und gute Betreuung. Ein unvergesslicher Tag. 🥰 Die 2. Tour war Oberklasse, ich bin mit Shogun zur Wahlbeobachtung rausgefahren und wir haben eine ganze Familie Pilotwale gesehen, diese wunderbaren Wesen sind recht neugierig und kamen auch auf das Boot zu. Ich habe Shogun vorgezogen, weil mir die übervollen Katamarane nicht so gefallen. Gute Wahl. Die ganze Fahrt ist wunderbar, man fährt bis Los Gigantes und in der Bucht gibt es eine köstliche Mahlzeit. Es ist sehr beeindruckend, dort zu ankern. Habe die Fahrt sehr genossen.......ich liebe das Meer sehr.🥰

What a fantastic day on our own private yacht. We went for the Astondoa 46 and the service was amazing. We saw sea turtles, dolphins and whales. Quick stop by a beach for a snorkel with the fishes and then back to drinking cava! Jan was great with the communication and made everything stress free. 100% would recommend to anyone planning something a little bit special.
