1. Masca village
Masca village is located in the Teno Rural Park and it's one of the must-see places in Tenerife. This place is nestled at the foot of an impressive ravine and the road itself to reach the village is impressive and picture worthy!

Punta de Teno is located on the west coast of Tenerife and from here you get spectacular views of the Los Gigantes cliffs, which make for an impressive backdrop for Instagram photos.

Located in the north of Tenerife in Anaga, Playa de Benijo is a beloved place for photographers in Tenerife. Head over to Playa de Benijo at sunset if you want to create some of the best Instagram photos in Tenerife.
4. Teide at sunset
Sunset in Teide National Park is one of the most unique experiences in Tenerife.
We went on a tour with Teide by Night and the sunset was simply amazing, the colors of the sky over the sea of clouds created a really unique landscape, with fantastic colors for pictures. So keep in mind that at sunset, Teide is probably the most Instagrammable place in Tenerife (on a clear day of course).

This is the place for one of the most iconic photos of Tenerife, with the gorgeous golden sand beach of de Las Teresitas in the background.
