5 top local tips from Pat
- The harbour of La Caleta, Adeje. A lovely place to sit by the sea front and watch the local fishermen bring in their catch or try a local fresh fish restaurant. A popular choice is La Masia .
- The Barranco del Infierno, known as Hell’s Ravine is a popular trail through the ravine to the highest waterfall in Tenerife. Limited to only 300 people a day to help preserve the environment, booking is essential so make reservations on barrancodelinfierno.es.
- Tagana, one of the oldest villages in Tenerife. The road there is not for the feint hearted but the reward for the effort is a peaceful village descending down the slopes of the forests of the Anaga mountains down to the Atlantic ocean with a stunning beach and some great walking trails.
- Puerto de la Cruz is not known for its beaches but Playa del Socorro will surprise you with its black volcanic sand and clear waters. The access is by stair way but all conveniences are there including a small beach bar.
- Markets –there are a variety of markets dotted all over the island with huge markets on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. If you fancy a more exotic type then visit the market of La Señora de Africa in the capital Santa Cruz.
