If you visit the island you can't leave without visiting this beautiful natural site. It's like no other place on Earth. If you have time and enjoy nature there are many hiking trails in the park. If your time is limited I highly recommend taking the Cable Car ride up to the volcano (Teide). The view is spectacular.
