Tenerife News & Events (weekly)

  • "All the villages and towns of Tenerife have their own fiesta (some have two or more, in fact), and each has its own distinct flavour. They usually include a procession, music, a mass and general merriment. The tiny village of Chirche ten minutes, vertically, from Guia de Isora, does things a little differently. They turn the entire village into a time machine and turn back the clock to the early days of the 20th century for just one weekend in the year."

  • "The number of foreign visitors to Spain’s Canary Islands soared in February, official data showed Tuesday, as sunseekers shunned rival resorts in Egypt and Tunisia because of anti-government uprisings there."

  • "More than 930,000 tourists visited the islands last month, a huge increase of 22.4% in comparison to the same month last year, according to the regional Department of Tourism. These figures make February 2011 the best month for tourism throughout the Canary Islands since 1996."

  • "The mirror calm waters of this beautiful hidden lake were broken only by the ghostly silver sculptures of dead trees and the slight ripples caused by neon-coloured darting dragonflies. It was a scene that was pure Louisiana swamplands rather than La Gomera rainforest and all that was missing was an alligator and the theme tune to True Blood."

  • "There is a new campaign in the municipality of Adeje as the Ayuntamiento starts to force dog owners to clean up after their pets. Round signs, in the form of a road sign with a dog doing its business and a diagonal line across, will be stuck on pavements, and radio adverts will soon be heard on local channels."

  • "There’s a reason why Masca is the second most visited place on Tenerife and it’s the same reason that Teide National Park is first on that list – it’s quite simply breathtaking.
    Few places on the planet can boast such a dramatic setting as Masca, nestling in its fertile blanket at the confluence of two gorges beneath the colossal peaks of the Teno Mountain Range."

  • "Each time it reaches a pylon the car gives a judder and a small drop which goes straight to the stomach and all 35 of its multi-national passengers make the same whoooo noise; the universal language of nerves barely concealed beneath a veneer of bravado."

  • "Normal service should be resumed this week."

  • "A bad day at the office by any standard, CD Tenerife went down 2-1 to a poor Cordoba side and finished with just 9 players on the pitch. "
