Tenerife News & Events (weekly)

  • "Details will be forthcoming, no doubt, as to the precise disruptions this strike action is likely to cause. “Not a good time to strike” is something of an understatement, to say the least. Tenerife does not need this. "

  • "Everyone is in a better mood when CD Tenerife win. After this 2-1 home victory over Zerex the young ladies working the street near my bus stop flocked around me to discuss the game, good job they said, well some sort of job was mentioned. Ok maybe they weren’t bothered about foofball but I couldn’t have been happier, a convincing win and out of the relegation zone above Las Palmas, how sweet."

  • "Yes, heather trees. Canarian heather (Erica arborea) is close relatives of English and Scottish heather, but it's a tree, growing anything up to 5 m tall. "

  • "Even constant juggling of the fixtures by the television companies can’t shake CD Tenerife off course, a 2-1 home win over Xerez saw them climb out of the relegation zone with confidence oozing from players and fans. The good times are back and the buzz among the 16,545 crowd before the game was unmistakable."

  • "The Spanish Government has decided to impose a temporary reduced speed limit on Spain’s motorways. The reduction is to 110 kmh and comes into effect on 7th March."

  • "... the Canary islands, Tenerife in particular, have a glorious history of wine making which has taken a new turn over the last decade with the pursuit for excellence and a substantial market share which recognises the unique character of the wines."

  • "... dancing dwarves and Chris C’s ship the Santa Maria being parked on the equivalent of La Palma’s high street "

  • "Once again it’s expected that Teide National Park, Garachico, Guía de Isora and Icod de los Vinos will stand in for Ancient Greece."

  • "Alerts are common at this time of year and the sea can give Tenerife’s coast, especially in the north, a right old pounding. But, unless you were planning on spending most of your time in the water, the chances are that these types of weather alerts won’t impact on your holiday. "

  • "What is it about the British psyche that makes us so reluctant to do anything that could be construed as making us look or sound silly? From using the right accent when speaking another language to donning a fancy dress costume, we don’t easily slip into alter egos, unlike many of our European cousins who smooth talk their way effortlessly through foreign accents and don a wig and high heels at the slightest hint of an excuse."

  • "Las Teresitas. Probably the most photographed beach on the island, because of its beautiful, golden sand, imported many moons ago from Western Sahara. Something which is now forbidden, I understand. Often overlooked by the run-of-the-mill tourists who favor the more predictable weather of the south of the island."

  • Only 4 pins in Tenerife? Clearly, the map is still very new and a lot more pins still need to be added.

  • "As a Canary Islands resident, using the local airline to island hop between Tenerife and its neighbours is an easy, convenient, time saving and economical way to travel."

  • "Anyone walking in the hills above the south west coast, especially in the Santiago del Teide area, over the last few weeks will have not only experienced the pleasure of walking through one of Tenerife’s prettiest landscapes, but will have done so at a time when it has been at its magical best."

  • "Last night I saw something that sent a shiver of excitement down my spine and brought a tingle to my tastebuds; something that seductively whispered ‘carnaval is here’ in my ears and had me licking my lips in anticipation of the maelstrom that was about to assault the senses of anyone who had the courage to plunge into its all-consuming madness."

  • "“…but having traversed the banks of the Orinoco, the Cordilleras of Peru, and the most beautiful valleys of Mexico, I own that I have never beheld a prospect more varied, more attractive, more harmonious in the distribution of the masses of verdure and rocks, than the western coast of Teneriffe.” - Alexander von Humboldt"

  • "Not much to say about the weather forecast for Tenerife for the coming week. It’s going to be mostly sunny across the island with another small rise in the temperature at the weekend. Is that spring on the horizon?"

  • "In March, once Carnaval is over, a new tourist bus service will start offering the chance to get to know Santa Cruz in 45 minutes."
