It was the very first Saturday in quite a long time which we made a decision to load the car with dogs and water bowls and head out for taking within our beautiful island. We didn’t go far, only about 20 miles from Los Cristianos into a quaint Canarian fishing village often bypassed as people speed along the TF1 either to or from Santa Cruz. It was a little while since we have been to Poris de Abona and that is a shame as it is just the kind of location to go in order to leave the tourists behind for an hour or two.
The Tenerife Travel Forum has kept its charms especially in the centre where nothing is different in decades and life still proceeds in the relaxed way. On any holiday to you may very well see anglers in the quay or folks topping within the tan. This period was no different – a lone fisherman stood awaiting a catch and in all probability wasn’t too concerned if he got a bite or otherwise, the tranquillity was reward enough.
We started off feeling energetic so walked down the coastline while using walkways and promenade how the council have given. These are lovely and possess loads of benches so it wasn’t too much time before we stopped for the girls to experience a drink therefore we enjoyed the ocean views.
Through the promenade we came to the small, sheltered curving beach that is well-liked by locals but never crowded. The magnificent water is shallow therefore we attempted to tempt the dogs into cool teneriife but that was never going to happen.
From your beach we took from the sights and sounds of your village, which was deserted and silent! I had hoped to hook the farmers market inside the plaza by the Church, that i had heard features a good assortment of local produce nevertheless it was late afternoon so the place was similar to a ghost town.
We continued down the coastal road, which becomes a rough track and reached the latest red and white lighthouse that dominates the skyline and it is an icon of Poris. This however will not be the original that was built-in 1902.
