The Queens of Tenerife

We often talk about how the Canary Islands feel as if they still belong to a different era, somewhere around the 1960s before the micro chip and social values revolutionised lifestyles in the UK. One example of what that retro lifestyle looks like is the emphasis the islands still place on old fashioned glamour. The Miss World competition may have fallen from grace in the UK in the 1970s and 1980s but that’s not the case in much of the rest of the world, and here in Tenerife, the beauty contest is alive and well.

Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
