Tenerife News & Events (weekly)

  • "A young scuba diver from Buenavista has tragically lost his life while enjoying his favourite sport in Los Silos, in north Tenerife. "

  • "So why do I think a blog trip is unlikely ever to happen on Tenerife? Because any such publicity opportunity would be taken over by the politicians rather than focussing on local people interacting with the bloggers. Because in order to pull this off successfully you would have to have local and island-wide government working in seamless unity, something I have yet to witness on Tenerife. "

  • "Canarian exporters are up in arms at the allegation, roundly denying that it could be due to vegetables from these islands. "

  • "There are plans to create a coastal path that links much of the north west coast of Tenerife but for the moment walkers can only experience individual sections. We’re fortunate enough to have one of the nicest outside our front door."

  • "They seem to have been stuck in a groove for quarter of a century and for the life of me I can’t get my head around why they are all following almost exactly the same outdated format."

  • "A total of 189 passengers are stuck in Tenerife as a result of the ash cloud from the eruption. Turismo de Tenerife says that these travellers are waiting for the sole flight currently affected, a Ryanair flight due from Prestwick-Glasgow. "

  • "This week’s election results on Tenerife have taken up much of the news over the past few days, but the inexplicable nature of some voting patterns is just too extraordinary to be even begin to try to summarise. We’re still scratching our heads as to why some residents continue to vote for politicians whose motives are quite clearly dubious…but that’s democracy for you. Or is it? "

  • "What a nice morning greeting In Vilaflor, the statue of Hermano Pedro gazing across the quiet entry junction and a cockerel crowing his little voice box out in the distance. Driving up from Los Cristianos the temperature had dropped about 6 degrees and the air was cool, perfect for walking. It’s about time I got my lazy bones moving and sampled the walking trails again so I had met up with one of the regular Saturday morning groups armed with a back pack of smelly sarnies, bottled water, and my camera."

  • "It’s a bit of a mixed bag for Tenerife’s weather this week. There should be quite a lot of sunshine especially in the south and south west of the island with even the chance of light showers in north and north eastern parts."

  • "If you haven’t heard of El Cine in Los Cristianos then you haven’t been talking to the right people; it’s Los Cristianos’ worst kept gastronomic secret. Ask nearly anyone who knows Los Cristianos to recommend a good, traditional fish restaurant and the name that’s probably most likely to form on their lips is El Cine’s."

  • "It’s never too late to show pride, CD Tenerife are finishing their relegation season with a flourish, even throwing in an away victory at Albacete by 2-1. "

  • "DJ Tiesto, praised as the world’s best, heads in from Holland on Saturday 6 August to light the fuse at Golf Costa Adeje with his Club Life experience. With the music memories still reverberating, it’s followed up on Friday 12 August with 13 hours of music at the Arona Summer Festival at the Las Americas football stadium (below). This one features French house music DJ David Guetta and a host of top acts from around Europe."
