Painted stones.

A summer of live music on Tenerife
A sultry evening, good food, live music, a buzzing friendly atmosphere and a Mount Teide backdrop. Those are pretty seductive ingredients, and ones we get to lap up a lot during summer months on Tenerife.

Bay swim – travesía a nado – in Alcalá tomorrow
This year, the swim starts at 10am from playa de La Jaquita and swimmers will make for Playita de Alcalá, near the Plaza del Llano, a race of 1,500m. Nearly 150 swimmers will be taking part.

Monday, 15 August is a public holiday
Just a reminder that next Monday, 15 August, is a public holiday for Asunción (Assumption of the Virgin Mary into Heaven), the fiestas patronales for the whole island, and the focal point of the celebrations is the veneration of the Virgin in Candelaria itself. Banks, most offices and many shops will be closed.
