PLAYA DE LAS AMERICAS, TENERIFE: SEPTEMBER 23 2013 - A male surfer surfs on a breaking wave near Playa de las Americas, Tenerife, Canary Islands

The Spanish island of Tenerife, off the north west African coast, is a common choice for holidaymakers, with its sunshine and warm weather attracting people nearly all year round. But not everyone focuses on sunbeds and sangria. From an adventure photography perspective, Tenerife has a lot going for it, with its clear air, spectacular sunsets and sunrises all working together to provide great light for photo shoots showcasing your trail running, trekking, mountain biking and cycling products up in the volcanic Teide National Park. The north Atlantic swell means Tenerife is also an ideal location for surf and surfing photography. (Three of the breaks near Playa de las Americas - La Izquierda, or 'Spanish Left', Billboards and La Fitenia - make it into Magic Seaweed's 10 best surf sports in the Canaries).
