Hi! Since I travel as much as I do and love to write, I thought I start sharing my experience with you here. Please keep in mind, it is a blog, it will be written with my words, it does not have to be all grammar correct, English is not my first language so there will be weird sentences and wrong spelled words popping up 🙂
I am just about to leave the beautiful island of Tenerife after spending a week with my two best friends Maria, @mariathepilot and Malin, @flymeyoga. High season is just about to kick in, flights and hotels are getting fully booked. The Canary Islands consist of seven islands in the Atlantic. Belonging to Spain but is still a good two and a half hours flight from main land Spain.
There are so much to do on this island, it would be impossible to have it all in just one blog post. I travel here regularly, so will keep you updated when we discover new hidden secrets on the island. We got up early in the mornings, before sunrise, before everyone else. When we had the beach to ourselves and our morning yoga.
What ever you like to do with your holiday Tenerife has it all. Hiking up the snow covered volcano Teide, Spain’s highest point, to all inclusive resorts, cliff jumping, snorkeling with turtles or surfing, you name it.
What fascinates me with this incredible island is that you can always find sunshine somewhere. Its amazing how fast the weather changes and how different it can be from the South to North side. It takes approximately four hours to drive around the entire island and you can have 30 degrees Celsius and sunshine in Los Christianos on the south side and 10 degrees with rain in Santa Cruz on the north side.
A must is to visit the Natural all made of rocks swimming pools in Garachico. Garachico itself is a beautiful small town an hour an a half drive from Tenerife South airport. I can not believe that I used to live here for four months last year and never discovered Garachico, it is definitely one of my new favorite places to go on the island.
Make sure you go to El Medano, ten minutes from the airport, have a coffee and watch all the surfers. Spot @mariathepilot out there playing with wind and water on her kitesurf. Or hike up Montana Roja. First time up “Red Mountain” it will take you around thirty to forty minutes, bring enough water and enjoy the view. Great for plane spotters, you get a full panoramic over the airport. Set a holiday goal to run to the top and splurge yourself with double dessert that night.
Thank you all for reading 🙂
