Tenerife (2/5) – Mountains, Beaches and Good Food

Today we went to the north of the island, to the ANAGA mountains. Before going there I watched videos and photos and was so excited about it. When you have a look at the map of the island you see that it’s a rather small part of it but driving there actually takes a long time because the roads there are so curvy and small that you have to go really slow. We spend almost the whole day there.

On our map (we got it from the tourist office and the guy there was so nice and showed us so many beautiful places) are typical viewpoints marked. So we went to the first one called “Jardina”. When we arrived there it was all of a sudden really cold, very foggy and the clouds were so fast it was incredible. I recommend you bring a light jacket just in case because up there it’s cold, it turned from 26 degrees Celsius down to 15!

After that we kept going on the “main road” (road TF-12) to go to other viewpoints and enjoyed the incredible view of the majestic moutains (that once were volcanoes), the deep blue ocean, the white and fast-moving clouds and the incredible nature of this island. We went until the end of that road to “Chamorga” but I would recommend you not to do that because there isn’t really anything to see. You better take another smaller road and go down to the beach. We took the road TF-134 to go down to Taganana and the beach “Playa de Benijo”, it’s a black beach and really nice.

On the way down there we stopped at the restaurant (which recommended us the guy from the tourist office) called Bibi & Mana… the food was amazing and the waiters too!! Such a cute little restaurant (“Guachinche”).

In the late afternoon we went back to a beach close to the city we stayed at. This is my absolute favourite beach of Tenerife!! It’s called Playa BOLLULLO. It’s also a black beach. The waves were so big, the red flag waving but we had so much fun. Parking there was 2 Euros (because it was after 18:00, otherwise it costs 3 Euros).

So the first day here in Tenerife was amazing! I am already in love with this island ❤
