Tenerife road trip in 8 days
Following the bane of a merciless, wet , cold and dark Irish winter I decided to seek the sun and warmth of October elsewhere: Tenerife.
Los Abrigos - 2 days
Nearest affordable town to Tenerife south airport. A good place to stay after 5 hours of being in a cramped Ryanair seat.
Easy access to El Parque National Del Tiede: Go to the information Centre to enquire when the Park is restricted due to hunting. Wednesdays and Fridays, I believe.
Santa Cruz de Tenerife: 2 days
Guimar road trip along the TF-28 and a stop over at the Malpais de Guimar
Anaga Mountains along the TF-12.
Hiking in Taganana ( Hiking time varies from 3 - 8hrs.) and there are not many circular routes
arrived at the end of the day on the Playa de san Andres ( there are loads of cabins around to get change in )
Visited Santa Cruz in the morning , especially the market ( where local fruit and cheese is sold)
Visited the Laguna in the afternoon
No worries most town centre a less than a 1km.
Garachico: 1 Day
Headed over to the Garachico and on the way stopover at La octoava and view the colonial style buidings
Rested up in the mountains around Genovés as it was far too prices down beside the below, beside the beach.
Los Abrigos 2 Last days
Visited Masca and did a little hike for 3 hours
Road trip in the Parque Nacional del Tiede along the TF-21
then headed back to Los Abrigos ( 30min along the toll free motorway)
I love goat cheese...
Drove all way the back to Santa Cruz de Tenerife (62 km at 120 km/h, only 30 minutes away from Los Abrigos).
Brought 2 kg of cheese worth for 25 euros in the mercado Africano market(the last day may sound crazy but worth it)
Swam at San André beach which has beautiful white sand.
