It absolutely was the first Saturday in quite a long time which we chosen to load up the car with dogs and water bowls and head out to consider in your beautiful island. We didn’t go far, no more than 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 had been a little while since we had been to Poris de Abona which is a shame as it is just the kind of place to go if you would like leave the tourists behind for an hour or so.
The Tenerife Forum has kept its charms particularly in the centre where nothing has evolved in decades and life still continues within a relaxed way. On any trip to you are likely to see anglers in the quay or folks topping the tan. This period was no different – a lone fisherman stood waiting for a catch and probably wasn’t too concerned if he got a bite or not, the tranquillity was reward enough.
We started off feeling energetic so walked over the coastline using the walkways and promenade how the council have given. They are lovely and have a good amount of benches thus it wasn’t too long before we stopped for the girls to get a drink so we enjoyed the ocean views.
Through the promenade we arrived at the small, sheltered curving beach that is certainly favored by locals but never crowded. The superior water is shallow so we aimed to tempt the dogs into cool teneriife but which had been never going to happen.
From your beach we took within the sights and sounds of your village, that was deserted and silent! I had hoped to catch the farmers market within the plaza by the Church, which I had heard features a good assortment of local produce nevertheless it was late afternoon and so the place was such as a ghost town.
We continued over the coastal road, which becomes a rough track and reached the latest red and white lighthouse that dominates the skyline which is an icon of Poris. Nevertheless this is not the first which was integrated 1902.
