Celebrate Life In Abades

Two views dominate the skyline of Abades in the municipality of Arico; at the top, across the TF1 motorway, the wind turbines hint at a high tech future for this overlooked part of the east coast of Tenerife. Lower down the bare stone block frame of the old church harks back to bleaker times. But rummage deeper in this mixed bag and you will be rewarded with a selection of beaches worth claiming as your own retreat, and a craggy landscape carved out by nature.



Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
