Water, water everywhere, but where to splash out?

TENERIFE is home to two excellent water parks, namely Aqualand and Siam Park. Aqualand ruled the roost for years, but the tables seem to have turned since Siam Park’s arrival. A question that often pops up is: “Which is the best one?” The answer is that many factors are involved, so what are the differences? […]

Splashing time in the City of Water

By Vanessa Vee I LOVE seeking out new direct destinations to travel to from Tenerife, and this week I’m taking a brief look at beautiful, beautiful Venice. Flying direct from here, it has to be done! Venice is, perhaps, one of the most famous and most beautiful cities in Italy. And every year, millions of […]

Karting? Even toddlers are given a mini-chance

THE local Karting track, the large one between Los Cristianos and the airport, is always a major sight, and, I would guess, a huge talking point for new arrivals on the transfer buses from their planes. The track is a well-known landmark because of its size, and it definitely stands out! And there is an […]

The Island of dreams

By Vanessa Vee WE see it every day … it’s there, just over the water. And, believe me, La Gomera is totally different from Tenerife. It’s peaceful, tranquil and attracts a type of clientèle alien to the norm of our Island. Los Cristianos terminal, just down the road, so easy. A few minutes sorting out […]

Whales and dolphins – see them naturally!

By Vanessa Vee THERE is a vast array of Whale and Dolphin excursions on offer here in the South of Tenerife, and it’s a fantastic way to view these wonderful creatures in their natural habitat. A huge controversy over animals in captivity is currently raging, so this is a wonderful opportunity to take to the […]

The island of adventure

LET’S take a little look at Lanzarote, one of our neighbouring Canary Islands, which is celebrated for its weather and beaches. But it’s also a fantastic place for cavers and climbers – the ideal destination if you fancy an adventurous holiday, somewhere hot and sunny. Even if you have no experience of exploring caves, you […]

Candelaria’s saintly status

WE decided to trot up the TF-1 to Candelaria, a beautiful, coastal area situated on Tenerife’s north-east coast, where, daily, coach-loads of tourists visit this sleepy, little Canarian village. It is steeped in history, which makes it so pleasant to experience something other than the popular tourist spots. With no British bars or restaurants in […]

We’re bubbling under!

By Vanessa Vee FIRST there was snorkelling, then there was scuba-diving … and now there’s the revolutionary BOB diving! But, as I have mentioned numerous times, I’m a big scaredy-cat when it comes to the sea. I have a permanent fear that Jaws is going to get me. Years ago, I tried snorkelling at Las […]

Braemar brims with class

IN my mind, it’s always good to plan ahead for your next holiday.  It gives us something to look forward to when we get caught up in the general day-to-day scenarios. This winter, Fred. Olsen have some great itineraries and offers, departing or disembarking right here in Tenerife. Fred. Olsen cruise lines offer a unique […]

The ‘Beautiful Island’

UPON arrival, it will become clear that La Palma is entirely different from Tenerife … with a discernibly slower pace and relaxed atmosphere. Though tourists are few, the locals are quiet, yet respectful and welcoming. Given its location as the most north-westerly of all the Canarian Islands, La Palma is first to meet the prevailing […]
