Santa Cruz Carnival; February: Tenerife hosts the largest carnival in Europe, with parades and street parties stretching over a whole sleepless week. Don’t miss the burial of the giant sardine. Yes really. It’s so bizarre you’ll think you’re seeing things.
Fiesta de San Juan; June: Celebrated across the north, this midsummer solstice knees-up is all about magic and new beginnings, with bonfires, picnics and parties stretching far into the early hours.
Perseid Meteor Shower; August: This annual meteor shower is a stunner. Wait for nightfall, wrap up in something warm and head for Mount Teide to watch stars shoot across the sky by the dozen. Romantic doesn’t even begin to cover it.
