Roads of Tenerife

Roads of Tenerife

The roads on Tenerife are mostly very good. The main roads and motorways are wide and are great. Side roads in the mountains are often narrow, steep and very winding - it's great entertainment ride that way! Photo of a steep and narrow road to Genovés.

Lookouts and car parks are always in great places in the Canary Islands. You can see on the spherical picture how little space you need to prepare a super place to admire the views.

Garachico on the north coast of Tenerife is a very interesting place with history. You can see the small and beautiful Canarian city. It is only a small fishing harbour now but in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries it was the main harbor on the island.

Northern Tenerife in November - clouds, fog and quite strong wind. The temperature is about 14-16 degrees C. If you like the sun then I recommend the southern part of the island. There is almost always sunshine and the temperature is 10 degrees higher.

Buenavista del Norte

Buenavista del Norte

A small town and an interesting tourist attraction at the northern end of the island with typically Canarian architecture. Worth seeing: 16th and 17th century old town, church and Remedios square. In autumn, there are no crowds after the tourist season ...

Punta De Teno

Punta De Teno

There is a lighthouse on the westernmost peninsula of Punta De Teno.
The road on the cliff edge to Punta De Teno is amazing. Note - you can drive there only in a week. At weekends, the road is only available for buses and taxis.

Beach Playa Punta De Teno

Beach Playa Punta De Teno

Mini beach on the peninsula of Punta De Teno. How little it is enough to relax on the beach ... maybe there is no golden sand, but what a view! A photo of Los Gigantes cliffs from the north.

Tenerife in November

Tenerife in November

There are two quite different weather zones in Tenerife in November - warm south and cool north. In the north of the island it was often clouded sometimes light rain ... and not too warm - temperature 14-18 degrees C. It does not bother you in walks, and some (as seen in the previous picture) even spend time on the beach ...

We stayed here:


Hotel Blue Sea Lagos De Cesar, Tenerife

Calle José González González
38683 Santiago, Santa Cruz de Tenerife
Canary Islands, Tenerife, Spain

The main advantage of this hotel was the location close to interesting places in Tenerife: Los Gigantes, Masca Gorge and good access to Teide Volcano.

The hotel is very clean, there were no insects :-) and the biggest advantage of the room we received was its size - it was a 3 bedroom studio: living room with balcony, bathroom with bathtub, twin bedroom and big wardrobe and an extra room with single bed.
