Winter Sun in Tenerife

May 01, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

I never understood the concept of Winter Sun until this last Winter, which seemed to drag on forever. I thought a week in November might be enough to steel us for what lay ahead. Turns out I should have stayed for 6 months. The island of Tenerife is hugely popular with tourists and holidaymakers, and rightly so. It's a jaw-droppingly spectacular volcanic island just off the coast of Africa with fantastic weather year-round. Everywhere you go on the island, the magnificent peak of El Teide can be seen, towering over 12,000 feet above. There aren't many places in the world where so many extremes are bunched together in such a small space: lush semi-tropical valleys, black sand beaches, high altitude volcanic deserts, montane forests... all surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic where you can watch dolphins and whales play. A visit is highly recommended. Just don't try to drive up the Masca Valley if you are a nervous driver!
