Jellyfish back in south Tenerife

There are no official warnings at present, but several beaches in south Tenerife have been affected by jellyfish. Some at least have been identified by diver David Andrews Thompson as one of the most toxic species, the so-called mauve stinger or Pelagia. Beaches affected seem to range from Fañabe to El Médano, with many spotted in the Amarilla Golf area.



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.
