Ten Favourite Tenerife Rock and Sea Pools

Understanding Weather Alerts on Tenerife
We bang on about weather alerts not to be sensationalist about things, the weather IS near perfect most of the time.

Roads in Tenerife slammed by Government
The Canarian Government has criticised the Cabildo of Tenerife for the standard of roads on the islands, after a string of complaints.

Fenautica 2016 in Las Galletas
The fourth “Guanche Cup” regatta, Fenautica 2016, will be held on 4 and 5 June in Las Galletas. The previous three occasions have been great successes, and this year is likely to be so as well. There will be a huge marine fair with many exhibitor stalls, food counters, music, competing yachts, charter craft, and much more. It’s a genuine sea fiesta which organizers hope will appeal to residents, locals, visitors, tourists, adults, children, and sports people.

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.
