It absolutely was the first Saturday in quite a long time that we decided to load in the car with dogs and water bowls and set off for taking within our beautiful island. We didn’t go far, only about 20 miles from Los Cristianos to your quaint Canarian fishing village often bypassed as people speed over the TF1 either to or from Santa Cruz. It had been a while since we was to Poris de Abona that is a shame as it is just the type of destination to go if you want to leave the tourists behind for an hour or so.
The Tenerife Forum has kept its charms particularly in the centre where nothing is different in decades and life still goes on in a relaxed way. On any vacation to you will probably see anglers around the quay or folks topping the tan. This time around was no different – a lone fisherman stood awaiting a catch and possibly wasn’t too concerned if he got a bite or otherwise, the tranquillity was reward enough.
We started off feeling energetic so walked along the coastline utilizing the walkways and promenade that this council have provided. These are lovely and also have a good amount of benches therefore it wasn’t too long before we stopped for your girls to get a drink and we enjoyed the water views.
From the promenade we arrived at the small, sheltered curving beach that may be well-liked by locals but never crowded. The superior water is shallow therefore we tried to tempt the dogs straight into cool teneriife but which had been not going to happen.
From the beach we took from the sights and sounds in the village, which had been deserted and silent! I needed hoped to hook the farmers market from the plaza with the Church, which I had heard includes a good variety of local produce however it was late afternoon so the place was similar to a ghost town.
We continued down the coastal road, which turns into a rough track and reached the new red and white lighthouse that dominates the skyline and is also an icon of Poris. This however is not the initial which had been built in 1902.
