How to That it is necessary to know about rest on the island of Tenerife: notes of the beginner

I was able to enjoy my stay at Tenerife, but it was the first and only visit that I have ever made. Before flying to the island, I read reviews of skilled people, but nevertheless many things were to be discovered by me personally. There is no sense to write about the Canary Islands, this information is easy to find in the Internet. Also I will omit the delights concerning the ocean, the beautiful country houses, reigning round goodwill and the atmosphere of an eternal holiday for what, actually, I was prepared. I will relate only that was beyond my banal ideas of rest on this island of eternal spring. I hope that my impressions will be useful to those who plans a trip for Tenerife.

    I couldn’t spend my holiday on Canary islands because of it’s high cost, i’ve put off my holiday for a long time. Especially I was frightened by the long time of flight and it’s overprice. When I examined my options closely, it appeared that all isn’t so terrible. On Canary Islands there is a very wide choice of different housing, from expensive to the quite budgetary. And it is possible to reach the island cheaper, than on many other resorts. Generally I would like to save on my holiday.

But all the same the island landscape strongly differs from brochures that you see in newspaper stands and in bookstores.

    I also noticed when i was struck at the airport that there was a total absence of red tape with car rental services.

    As for beaches, I didn´t manage to see black or gold sand which I had heard a lot. On a beach where we had a rest, the sand was gray color, quite large.

    I was surprised when we swam in the ocean. First, it was November and it was not especially hot, and the water was quite cool, and secondly, even the slightest waves would lift sand, and water at the coast becomes muddy. Frankly speaking, I do not want to swim in this kind of water. I just bathed in the pool where we stayed.

    We tried to look at all main sights of the island, and a volcano visit to Teide appeared the strongest impression for me.

Warnings

  • I want to pay attention of those who are going to go to Tenerife with small children. On the island there is a lot of such tourists, and we too had to take a child along. In supermarkets there was a  wide choice of regular food, but there are only a few supermarkets that sell baby food. Therefore it is better to take baby food with you instead.
