The reopening of Las Gaviotas beach in Tenerife is already a fact.
After its closure in 2010 due to landslides that made impossible guarantee to the safety of the users, the town Hall informed first phase of heath and safety works were completed works , leaving 30% of the beach with restricted access, establishing fines in case people don’t respect resticted areas.
Plan for any day in Tenerife : get together a group of friends and enjoy Mount Teide National Park. The seven of us , wanted to walk but also see Tajinastes (Tower of Jewels) blossom, so instead of getting there on our own, we decided to hire a guide and avoid walking without specific direction and enjoy explanations about flora, fauna, legends…. Our guide: Félix de la Rosa from Oditen
Felix picked up us with his car in La Laguna and at 08.15 h already we were on our way to Teide National Park, making a brief stop for a coffee.
Enjoying the sea of clouds as we were getting closer to the Parador Nacional del Teide, our starting point , Felix was answering our doubts and questions about our circular medium – high difficulty, whose duration was estimated in 5 hours (as I was not very fit, it took me at least one extra hour)
Once in our starting point, we commented the circular route from Mount Teide Parador with the following map we had previously received, along with information by e mail.
The heigh difference of this circular route is 500 m, from 2200m to 2700m. In the first part, our ascension, we enjoyed the Tajinastes that dotted the landscape in red and whose bloom, Felix said , that takes a process of a month and a half, but whose peak only lasts for two weeks .Quite a visual spectacle that is one more excuse to go up to Mount Teide Park with a guide.
We went through the Canada del Capricho, one of the areas where climbing is permitted in the National Park, with their gorgeous white and red shades, full of curious holes that should fascinate climbers.
We continued walking up through Degollada de Guajara, stopping us to enjoy a grey Chaffinch singing, which seemed to be there waiting for us to attend to its concert and that instead of flying,it sang for us. Amazing!
We finally finished our ascent at a point from which the views of LLano de Ucanca with Mount Teide just in frontof us, widely compensated the effort.
We made a break in where, long time ago, it had been refuge for goat herders, which also served in the 19th century as a place for astronomical observation and where you can find a box with agendas that are used as guestbooks. Among others, Raúl Socorro, from Cio Sport & Travel also left evidence of his visit.
After listening to the legend of Guajara, we began to descend by the Ucanca Valley, but not before a last look to a panoramic view of Llano de Ucanca.
During the descent it was almost when I more valued having a guide by me. While the way up was also busy and well signposted, the descent required much more attention, though I don’t suffer from vertigo, easy was to slip or give a stumble in a soil of sand or with a lot of stones, but that surprised us with a Mount Teide violet.
And so we kept walking back to Parador, always supervised by Felix . Done! … Although I was the last arriving.
No, here does not end our day. Felix took us by Vilaflor to the Midlands area of Adeje to eat in a guachinche, El Dornajo in Ifonche. €15 per person (not included in the activity) with escaldón, rabbit, potatoes, wine, beer and water in plentiful quantities.
We returned to La Lafuna from the South, tired but immensely happy after a fab day.
If you decide to do the same thing with your group of friends contact Félix at email@example.com or visit his website Oditen
. Prices vary depending on the duration and difficulty, the one I’ve related in this post had a price of € 30pp, including transportation, but not the food.
In addition Oditen services adapt to what you want, from routes to take pictures, to cultural tours combined with simple trips of short duration and low difficulty. You just ask and Felix will take care of your day in Tenerife to make it such an unforgettable experience.

If I told you there is a luxury hotel in Tenerife‘s beach front, right on Playa de las Americas, where absolute tranquility is all over… would you believe me ?
Do not hesitate to do so.
Hotel Sir Anthony , proud of wonderful seventy rooms in this ideal location to offer relaxing sea views and an exclusive atmosphere in the strict sense of the word.
This 5 star hotel in Playa de las Americas, Arona, is designed to provide maximum comfort to its guests.
Its rooms, all with lounge chairs on the terraces, have direct access to the pool, if they are in the first level, or the exclusivity of a small and intimate private pool on the sun terrace, which is accessed via a spiral staircase, if you reserve those rooms in the upper floor, all of them, duplex type.
Sir Anthony is not an Adults Only Hotel, but it is the perfect hotel for those days of disconnection as a couple or alone, for that romantic getaway, for a perfect anniversary celebration, for that surprise that he or she can’t imagine and worth enjoying with no kids.
At Sir Anthony you won’t miss anything, from an ice dispenser in the corridor, for that drink in the room at the time that you want while you can see how your partner ultimates the Jacuzzi or poolside Balinese beds. You may also, as it could not be otherwise,have all you need to prepare your tea to have in bed.
Hotel Sir Anthony offers the dining a la carte options, although the proposals of the day can be checked in a buffet. Dishes for all tastes with fabulous presentations and first quality products , as for example this palette of Apple, red fruits and pineapple sorbets, as delicious as attractive .
Do not hesitate to succumb to the temptation and come to the Hotel Sir Anthony in Playa de las Americas, a luxury that you deserve.
