In the spirit of family holidays, we booked a holiday to Tenerife this summer. Google photos showing picturesque sandy beaches were all too welcoming. Tenerife is on the Canary Island, a Spanish Island located not too far from West Africa. It is one of the European countries located on the African Plate. Therefore they have wonderful temperatures all year round. I did wonder how much different an Island that is just about four hours away from the UK would be, culturally and topographically. But boy the contrast was glaring as was evident in the food, the language, architecture, mannerism of the locals, the climate, the vegetation as well as the layout of the Island.
Our home during the holiday was the gorgeous Aguamarina Golf apartments which is about 10 miles drive from the Tenerife airport. The apartment complex is situated on the ever so serene Golf de Sur resort. As it’s name suggests, Golf de Sur is a well known golf location on the Southern coast of Tenerife. It has a marina, beautiful palm trees, cacti, a host of souvenir shops and hotels. There is an array of restaurants dotted around the Island which spring to life during the late afternoons through to the night. These restaurants offer traditional Spanish cuisine or other continental dishes with prices within reason. If you love photography, you’d love this resort. Truly everywhere you turn, is a wonderful sight to shoot. We spent time exploring the Island and taking in its beauty. If anyone is looking to book a holiday location that is tranquil yet full of life, I would strongly suggest Golf de Sur in Tenerife.
