It was the very first Saturday in quite a long time that we decided to load in the car with dogs and water bowls and go out to take in your beautiful island. We didn’t go far, only about 20 miles from Los Cristianos into a quaint Canarian fishing village often bypassed as people speed over the TF1 either to or from Santa Cruz. It was a while since we ended up being to Poris de Abona that is a shame because it is just the type of destination to go if you want to leave the tourists behind for a couple of hours.
The Tenerife Forums has kept its charms specially in the centre where nothing has changed in decades and life still proceeds inside a relaxed way. On any visit to you will probably see anglers about the quay or folks topping the tan. Now was no different – a lone fisherman stood waiting for a catch and in all likelihood wasn’t too concerned if he got a bite or perhaps not, the tranquillity was reward enough.
We started off feeling energetic so walked over the coastline while using walkways and promenade how the council have given. They are lovely and have a good amount of benches so that it wasn’t too long before we stopped for your girls to have a drink and we enjoyed the ocean views.
In the promenade we stumbled on the tiny, sheltered curving beach that is certainly loved by locals but never crowded. The magnificent water is shallow so that we aimed to tempt the dogs into cool teneriife but that had been never going to happen.
In the beach we took from the sights and sounds in the village, that was deserted and silent! I had hoped to capture the farmers market within the plaza through the Church, which I had heard has a good number of local produce however it was late afternoon therefore the place was like a ghost town.
We continued down the coastal road, which turns into a rough track and reached the newest red and white lighthouse that dominates the skyline and is an icon of Poris. This however is just not the original that was built-in 1902.
