Tenerife News & Events (weekly)

  • "Snorting, grunting and oinking he stuck his head deep in the bucket and devoured every last morsel. Maybe I’m talking about my breakfast routine, maybe about the rare Canarian Black Pig at Agrocanarias in Santa Cruz, or maybe both! "

  • "Tourist figures for the first three months of this year show an increase to more than 1.258 million visitors, which is 8.8 per cent up on the same three months of 2010 year. Figures for April are expected to show an even bigger increase due to the Easter holidays."

  • "Puerto has a reputation for being a staid old girl, perfectly suited to ‘more mature’ visitors who aren’t seeking a lively nocturnal scene…and whilst that isn’t exactly inaccurate, neither is it the whole picture."

  • "Into the last 6 games, will CD Tenerife be relegated by this point, will the promising B team youngsters be given a chance to stake a claim for next season, will the stadium cheese rolls be edible?"

  • "The Spanish government will embark on a Europe-wide roadshow to convince investors to come back to the nation’s property market, starting off with a press conference on the latest industry developments next week in London."

  • "The Easter Bank Holiday weekend weather was something of a disappointment for Tenerife and just for once, we enviously watched the sun soaked UK from our rain sodden island. But all that refreshment has given the earth her spring shower, the sun has returned to warm her to the core and she has responded with an explosion of colour."

  • "One of the most awe inspiring videos on the internet in the last week was the timelapse video of Tenerife and Mount Teide taken by the Norwegian photographer Terje Sorgjerd. This incredible piece of work captured the imagination of internet users, attracting millions of views in only eleven days and was a priceless piece of promotion for Tenerife. If you haven’t seen it yet, sit back, hit the play button and prepare to be astounded."

  • "Adeje Policía Local have arrested a 21-year-old British youth for an attack on his partner in Torviscas late last night, or rather very early this morning. "

  • "The legality of the little frontline El Marqués centre in Playa Paraiso is now to be judged by the Supreme Court for its many alleged irregularities, including that there are dwellings in a commercial centre and that it’s in breach of coastal law. The case has been rumbling on for years, since the construction licence itself was granted, and it has now reached the highest Court in Spain."

  • "Not good news for visitors to Tenerife this week, the Spanish Met Office are predicting more of the same with a mix of cloud sun and rain all week…except for Mount Teide where the sun should be shining. On the coasts, Puerto de la Cruz in the north and Santa Cruz and the east coast look like the best bets for escaping any rain at all on Tuesday with Thursday and Saturday predicted to have almost guaranteed rainfall everywhere."

  • According to the Daily Mail, Tenerife is still in the disconnected dark ages and Anorak question if this is,"Because the internet does not exist? Email does not exist? Mobile phones you can call directly do no exist? Files cannot be posted? Judges are all idiots?"

  • "I couldn’t have felt sicker if I’d scoffed a bucket full of creme eggs, this was awful, thankfully just 7 more games before we start kicking players out of the club. "

    Looking on the bright side, tourists will be able to go along to watch CD Tenerife away games against the local team, without even leaving Playa de las Americas next year. :)

  • "The trouble with Easter is that, compared to summer vacations, everyone is on holiday at the same time, which means crowds everywhere. Narrow Lake District roads are another place to avoid at this time of year. Gridlock – and usually gridlock accompanied by the slapping of windscreen wipers.

    Basically, it’s the same here, but without the windscreen wipers. "

  • "How low is low? For CD Tenerife fans it seems that as soon as we think it can’t get any worse it does, this 1-0 home defeat to Villareal B drew just 8,600 fans, half of what we were getting a month ago. In the week leading up to the game there were calls for fans to boycott the first 10 minutes in protest but many didn’t show at all and another inept display left the rest of us wondering why we bothered."
