The secrets of every island in the Canarian Archipelago

The secrets of every island in the Canarian Archipelago

Canary Islands are amazing volcanic islands located in the Atlantic Ocean, close to Morocco. The place is considered to be the paradise for tourism. 

There are eight main islands in the Canaries and each and everyone of them has something outstanding. 

This article will give you interesting and relevant snippets of information regarding each island.

Fuerteventura is the flattest and the oldest of the islands. The name literally means strong wind and it has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Here, the sand is golden and the waters have a beautiful turquoise nuance. The native inhabitants are called majorero/-a.

Lanzarote is the best place in the world for sports because everyone is in good shape and you will actually feel encouraged to be more active. Also, for all the scuba divers out there, Lanzarote has an amazing underwater museum, where you can actually admire human shaped statues. The natives of Lanzarote are called lanzaroteño/-a.

La Graciosa is the youngest of all the islands. There are no cars on La Graciosa, your best way to travel around is by using a bike. Also, the place is paradise for trail runners because you have plenty of paths to lead you to beautiful sceneries.

Gran Canaria is still in business when it comes to sugar cane – and if you have sugar cane, you have rum. Gran Canaria is a great place in Europe to enjoy a local homemade mojito. Also, it is the only place in Europe where you can see coffee plantations. Locals on the island are called canario/-a.

Tenerife is the most popular island of them all. Here you can find the largest lava tube in Europe called La Cueva del Viento. The locals really like to party, that is why here you can take part in the second biggest carnival in the world, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The local people are called tinerfeño/-a.

La Gomera is especially interesting because the locals have been speaking a whistled speech since ancient times. Because of the notched landscape, it was quite hard to build roads so the island has hundreds of kilometers of trails suitable for adventurous hikers. La Gomera is also known as the island of treasures and maybe you should go there to find out why.

El Hierro is such an example for everyone because it is a leader in sustainability. The energy used there is 100% renewable. Also, on the island, you can still find living specimens of giant lizards, once considered extinct. In the old times, people used to believe that this was the westernmost point of the world, the reason behind being called Meridian Island.

La Palma is a must go to place for astronomy lovers because it offers one of the best night skies in the world. If you’ve ever heard about La Isla Bonita, well, it’s La Palma. Here you can also find a creepy scuba diving attraction, an underwater cemetery that was built almost 500 years ago. The island is incredibly beautiful and it is a great place to relax in the lush green forests.
So, it’s time to explore all the islands and pick your favourite. When going to Tenerife, you can find all the places to see and enjoy in the TenerifeBuzz App. Don’t forget to download it and let us know which is your special island.

Principales carreteras maravillosas en Tenerife

Principales carreteras maravillosas en Tenerife

Conducir en Tenerife es un placer. Las carreteras son geniales y el paisaje es impresionante. Entonces, durante su estadía, si siente que ha tenido suficiente sol y playas, puede emprender un viaje de aventuras en la isla.

Lo especial de Tenerife es que puedes ver 10 paisajes diferentes en solo 100 km. Puedes ver el océano, las montañas, el desierto, los bosques lujosos y los enormes acantilados en un solo viaje.

No olvide su traje de baño ni sus botas de montaña sí eso es algo que le gusta hacer. Además, siempre que viaje a Tenerife, lleve consigo su protector solar.

Aquí tienes dos de nuestras rutas favoritas en Tenerife. Espero que los disfrutes tanto como nosotros, y ten en cuenta que la buena música es el secreto de un gran viaje. Boogie Bunker Radio es su compañero de aventuras para estas aventuras.

Acantilados de Los Gigantes- Masca – El Barracán – Parque rural de Teno – Los Silos

Este viaje tiene una longitud aproximada de 55 km, pero recuerda que tendrás que detenerte y admirar el paisaje muchas veces porque es simplemente increíble.

El primer viaje que debe realizar comienza en Acantilados de Los Gigantes. Aquí puedes ver dónde se cruzan el océano, el cielo y los enormes acantilados (de hasta 600 m de altura), creando un paisaje que te dejará sin palabras. Lo que hay que tener en cuenta es que puede resultar difícil encontrar un lugar para estacionar. En caso de que haga demasiado calor, báñate en la Playa de los Guios o prueba la Piscina Natural Acantilado De Los Gigantes.

El siguiente destino es el pueblo de Masca. El camino que lleva allí es bastante épico, te da la impresión de estar en algún lugar de los Andes, en Sudamérica. Durante el viaje, puede detenerse en cada Mirador, la palabra en español para un lugar o balcón diseñado para dominar una amplia perspectiva. Tómate tu tiempo para admirar los alrededores y da un paseo por el pueblo.

Desde aquí se debe continuar el camino hacia el Mirador Altos de Baracán, un bello lugar situado a una altura de unos 800 m desde donde se puede admirar la Montaña de El Palmar. Este es un gran lugar para tomar algunas fotografías y también puede ver que el clima está cambiando. Las pistas tienden a ser más verdes de este lado y si hace buen tiempo, se puede ver todo el camino hasta La Gomera.

La siguiente parada debe ser en Teno Alto, un pueblo mágico donde se pueden ver cabras caminando tranquilamente por los caminos y se puede disfrutar de una exuberante vegetación. En caso de que desee apoyar a los agricultores locales, este es el lugar para detenerse y comprar algunos productos caseros. No te pierdas el Paisaje Lunar En Teno Alto, también conocido como Los Bailaderos. Este lugar nunca está lleno de gente y es único porque las nubes generalmente rodean el área y le dan una apariencia extraña. Puedes probar un poco de caminata lunar solo por diversión y no te olvides de tomar algunas fotos.

La última parada debe ser en Charco Los Chochos en Los Silos. El océano esculpe la orilla y crea piscinas naturales. Deja que la tranquilidad de este lugar te abrace. La gran ventaja es que este lugar no está abarrotado, ya que se considera una joya escondida.

Playa de la Teresitas – Mirador Risco Amogoje – Playa de Benijo – Piscina Natural de Bajamar

Este viaje tiene una longitud de 62 km y te da la oportunidad de darte un baño en diferentes lugares de la isla, con vistas totalmente diferentes. Trate de evitar hacer este viaje durante los fines de semana, ya que podría estar más concurrido.

La Playa de las Teresitas es una de las playas más populares de Tenerife. La arena dorada es increíble y el lugar es ideal para un baño también porque el océano tiende a estar tranquilo en este lado de la isla.

Desde aquí, continuaremos el viaje por el Parque Rural de Anaga, uno de los lugares más increíbles de Tenerife. Tómese su tiempo y deténgase siempre que sea posible porque este lugar es un tesoro. El bosque aquí parece encantado y realmente puedes admirar el océano desde arriba.

Una vez que llegues al Mirador Risco Amogoje, podrás admirar uno de los lugares más asombrosos del mundo. Este lugar permanecerá en tu memoria para siempre, justo encima del océano, con enormes montañas a cada lado y, de vez en cuando, puedes ver nubes golpeando los acantilados.

Comience su descenso a la Playa de Benijo, una playa verdaderamente espectacular con arena negra, rocas dentadas y no demasiados edificios alrededor. El lugar es bastante salvaje y es el mejor lugar de Tenerife para ver la puesta de sol.

Cruzarás el Parque Rural de Anaga y finalmente llegarás a la Piscina Natural de Bajamar, un gran lugar si disfrutas de las grandes olas y quieres divertirte. Las enormes olas golpean la piscina y la llenan de agua fresca al mismo tiempo que dan un toque a todos los entusiastas que se sientan cerca del borde.  

La Esperanza – Mirador de Chipeque – Parque Nacional del Teide

Este viaje tiene una longitud aproximada de 60 km y lo llevará a la montaña, mientras atraviesa algunos bosques de pinos increíbles. Te recomendamos que sigas esta ruta después de las 14 h. porque ahí es cuando las nubes del norte vienen y abrazan la montaña. Podrás ver la montaña, el sol y el mar de nubes a tus pies.

Aunque no se mencionan muchas paradas en esta ruta, definitivamente elegirás tomarte un descanso y admirar el paisaje cada 5 minutos porque es simplemente increíble.

El pino canario es endémico de las Islas Canarias y su olor se mezcla muy bien con el olor del océano. Este viaje es una emoción para todos tus sentidos.

Obviamente, al final del viaje, te encontrarás en el Parque Nacional del Teide, un lugar que es a la vez misterioso y atractivo. Si eres lo suficientemente valiente, espera la puesta de sol. El cielo nocturno aquí es el más claro que jamás verás y puedes admirar la Vía Láctea con tus propios ojos.

Top scenic roads in Tenerife

Driving around Tenerife is such a pleasure. The roads are great and the landscape is breath-taking. So, during your stay, once you feel like you’ve had enough sun and beaches, it’s time to go on an adventurous trip around the island. 

The special thing about Tenerife is that you can see 10 different sights in only 100 km. You can see the ocean, the mountains, the desert, the lush forests and the huge cliffs in one journey.

Just don’t forget your swimming suit, nor your hiking boots if that’s your thing. Also, whenever travelling in Tenerife, take your sunscreen with you.

Here are three of our favourite routes in Tenerife. Hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we do and keep in mind that great music is the secret to a great trip. Boogie Bunker Radio is your adventure buddy for these escapades. 

Acantilados de Los Gigantes- Masca – El Barracán – Parque rural de Teno – Los Silos

This trip is around 55 km long but keep in mind that you’ll have to stop many times because the landscape is simply amazing.

The first trip you should take starts in Acantilados de Los Gigantes. Here you can actually see where the ocean, the sky and the huge cliffs (up to 600 m in height) intersect, creating a landscape that will leave you speechless. The thing to remember is that it might be difficult to find a place to park. In case it’s too hot, go for a swim at Playa de los Guios or try the Piscina Natural Acantilado De Los Gigantes.

The next destination is the village of Masca. The road going there is quite epic, it gives you the impression that you might be somewhere in the Andes, in South America. During the trip, you can stop at every Mirador – the Spanish word for a place or or balcony designed to command an extensive outlook. Take your time to admire the surroundings and go for a walk around the village.

From here, you should continue the journey towards Mirador Altos de Baracán, a beautiful place situated at around 800 m from where you can admire the Montaña de El Palmar. This is a great place to take some pictures and you can also see that the climate is changing. The slopes tend to be greener on this side and if the weather is good, you can see all the way to La Gomera.

The next stop should be in Teno Alto, a magic village where you can see goats peacefully walking on the roads and you can enjoy luxurious vegetation. In case you want to support local farmers, this is the place to stop and buy some homemade products. Don’t miss the Paisaje Lunar (lunar landscape) En Teno Alto, also known as Los Bailaderos. This place is never crowded and it’s unique because the clouds usually surround the area and give it an alien appearance. You can try some moonwalking just for fun and don’t forget to take some pictures.

The last stop should be at Charco Los Chochos in Los Silos. Charco is the Spanish word for a water hole. The ocean sculpts the shore and creates natural pools. Just let the tranquility of this place surround you. The big bonus is that this place is not crowded, being considered a hidden gem.

Playa de la Teresitas – Mirador Risco Amogoje – Playa de Benijo – Piscina Natural de Bajamar

This trip is 62 km long and it gives you the opportunity to take a bath in different places of the island, with totally different views. Try to avoid going on this trip during weekends because it might be more cramped.

Playa de las Teresitas is one of the most popular beaches in Tenerife. The golden sand is amazing and the place is great for a bath as well because the ocean tends to be calm on this side of the island.

From here, you’ll continue the journey through the Parque Rural de Anaga, one of the most amazing places in Tenerife. Take your time and stop whenever possible because this place is a treasure. The forest here looks enchanted and you can actually admire the ocean from above.

Once you get to Mirador Risco Amogoje, you will be able to admire one of the most amazing places in the world. This place will remain in your memory forever – just above the ocean, with huge mountains on each side and from time to time, you can see clouds hitting the cliffs.

Begin your descent to Playa de Benijo, a truly spectacular beach with black sand, indented rocks and not too many buildings around. The place is quite wild and it is the best place in Tenerife to watch the sunset.

You’ll cross the Anaga Rural Park and you’ll eventually get to Piscina Natural de Bajamar, a great place if you enjoy big waves and you want to have some fun. The huge waves hit the pool and fill it with fresh water while also giving a splash to all the enthusiasts sitting close to the edge.  

La Esperanza – Mirador de Chipeque – Teide National Park

Beautiful rock formation in Teide National Park. Photo: Cristian Terec

This trip is about 60 km long and it will take you up the mountain, through some amazing pine tree forests. We recommend that you go on this route after 2 p.m. because that is when the clouds from the North come and embrace the mountain. You’ll be able to see the Pico del Teide, the Sun and the sea of clouds at your feet.

Even though there are not many stops mentioned in this route, you’ll definitely choose to take a break and admire the landscape every 5 minutes because it is simply amazing. 

The Canary Island Pine is endemic to the Canary Islands and the smell of it mixes so well with the smell of the ocean. This trip is an excitement for all your senses.

Obviously, at the end of the trip, you’ll find yourself in Teide National Park, a place that is both eerie and alluring. If you are brave enough, wait for the sunset. The night sky here is the clearest you’ll ever see  and you can actually admire the Milky Way with your bare eyes.

Library reading section reopens

Library reading section reopens

Adeje 19 June 2020

 

Adeje library opens the reading room; users will need to book in advance

 

Capacity will be limited to 7 people and there will be two sessions, 8am to 11am and 11am to 2pm

 

The Adeje library, part of the department of Education under Councillor María Clavijo Maza, will reopen the reading room from next Monday June 22nd. To make this possible the library will be operating with two sessions, from 8am to 11am and 11am to 2pm. Capacity will be limited to 7 people at any one time, all users will be required to wear a mask at all times, and the area will be cleaned and disinfected after each session. 

 

The Adeje public library opened to the public again on May 18th, in a phased manner, controlled and operating via prior appointments for people who wished to return books. Before opening the library had made the necessary changes to the centre, part of the on-going process to reintroduce the library services over a phased time.

 

The councillor said that “for now we are opening the reading section downstairs so that we can control capacity at all times, guaranteeing the safety of library visitors and, of course, the staff”. She underlined that “we are working on the opening of the library bit by bit, offering the services the library has always made available to the public, but it will take time”.

 

The library continues to prioritise those users who consult the online catalogue https://www3.gobiernodecanarias.org/bibliotecavirtual and reserve the book they want to borrow or consult in situ.  The library staff will be the only ones permitted to get the material from the stacks to bring to the library user in question.

 

Books that are lent will be disinfected upon their return to the library and ‘quarantined’ for 14 days.  There is a zone reserved for returns and the lending time has been increased to 30 days for all kinds of material that can be borrowed.

 

The public is reminded that the newspaper reading section remains closed as are the study sections, the public computers and there are currently no cultural activities taking place here either.

 

We recommend that users also consult online free services offered by the Canarian public libraries network-

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare fix causes Xbox owners more headaches

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare fix causes Xbox owners more headaches

The makers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare say they have “resolved” a problem that caused updates to the video game to be more than twice the size they should have been.

But several players who have tried to take advantage of the fix have reported being worse off as a consequence.

The initial issue led some Xboxes to start downloading an 85 gigabyte file that should have been about 40GB.

And some who cancelled this to try again have lost their main game file.

As a consequence they have had to download the entire title from scratch, entailing a download of more than 100GB.

Call of Duty: Modern WarfareImage copyrightACTIVISION

In theory it should take about four hours to download a file of that size on an average UK home broadband connection.

In practice, however, it takes much longer, because the data cannot be downloaded at the maximum speed if there are too many people trying to do so at once.

Big update

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Season 4 update introduces new weapons, narrative video scenes, maps and bug fixes to Activision’s first-person shooter.

Once downloaded, it takes up only 4GB more storage than the previous version on the hard drive.

Even so, some players have expressed concern at the amount of disc space they are having to give up – as the game has had one of the largest file sizes among mainstream games since its release last year.

On Sony’s PlayStation 4, the installed game can now take up close to 200GB in total – about half disc space available on the basic version.

Owners can, however, delete some of the modes they do not play to free up storage for other games and media.

The update was originally scheduled to have been made available on 3 June but developer Infinity Ward said it had been held back until now to allow people to focus on voices calling for “equality, justice and change” as part of the US protests sparked by the killing of George Floyd.

Activision said the latest version of Modern Warfare had been its bestselling Call of Duty game to date, during a recent analysts briefing.

The company makes money from each season update as players can pay a fee to unlock new content rather than having to spend hours earning it via a series of in-game achievements.
