It had been the first Saturday in quite a while which we made a decision to load within the car with dogs and water bowls and go out to take inside our beautiful island. We didn’t go far, approximately 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 was a little while since we had been to Poris de Abona which is a shame as it is just the type of place to go if you wish to leave the tourists behind for an hour or so.
The Tenerife Travel Forum has kept its charms particularly in the centre where nothing has changed in decades and life still continues in the relaxed way. On any trip to you will likely see anglers in the quay or folks topping the tan. Now was no different – a lone fisherman stood awaiting a catch and probably wasn’t too concerned if he got a bite or otherwise not, the tranquillity was reward enough.
We started off feeling energetic so walked along the coastline while using walkways and promenade how the council have provided. These are lovely and have a good amount of benches thus it wasn’t a long time before we stopped for your girls to possess a drink and we enjoyed the ocean views.
In the promenade we arrived at the tiny, sheltered curving beach that is well-liked by locals but never crowded. The crystal clear water is shallow so that we aimed to tempt the dogs straight into cool teneriife but which was never going to happen.
From your beach we took from the sights and sounds in the village, that has been deserted and silent! I had hoped to trap the farmers market within the plaza through the Church, that i had heard features a good selection of local produce nevertheless it was late afternoon therefore the place was just like a ghost town.
We continued over the coastal road, which turns into a rough track and reached the newest 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.
