Tenerife blue flag beaches for 2015

Tenerife itself is down two as well, with 13 blue flags for beaches or coastal facilities this year. They are:

El Médano in Granadilla de Abona; Troya I & II, Torviscas, Fañabé, and El Duque in Adeje; Playa La Arena and the Los Gigantes sports harbour in Santiago del Teide; the Bajamar pools in La Laguna; El Socorro in Los Realejos; San Telmo and Playa Jardín in Puerto de la Cruz; Playa San Juan in Guía de Isora; and the Real Club Náutico in Santa Cruz. Playa La Arena’s award makes it the 28th consecutive year that the beach has won the distinction, an outstanding distinction in its own right.

The continued absence of Arona, however, with not a single beach awarded yet again points strongly to all that’s wrong with the borough’s management.

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.
