Tenerife Café Society is Becoming More Stylish

The council in Santa Cruz, the capital of Tenerife, has just announced that cafés, bars and restaurants will have to standardise their chairs, tables, parasols and wind screens in order to help improve the appearance of the city.

Some people are against initiatives such as this, claiming the extra cost impacts on business in a time of continued crisis whilst being told what colour and style of tables and chairs you should have is a further jump down the road to nanny state-dom.



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.
