Tenerife – The Pearl of The Canary Islands

Tenerife – The Pearl of The Canary Islands

Finding a perfect location for your holiday is an important task. After a year spent in hard work, the last thing you would want is a disappointing vacation. Well, Spain is always a good and safe choice but if you really want to have a nice time, then you should go to Tenerife.

The Canary Islands – a Heaven on Earth

The Canary Islands are truly the next best thing to Heaven, so going there will surely be a wise decision. Tenerife is the biggest of seven islands that together make this beautiful archipelago. Also, it is the most populous island in the whole Spain and maybe even the most beautiful one. There is one interesting fact about The Canary Islands. Namely, they are much closer to the African coast than to the Spanish mainland. And that is not all; Tenerife is a volcanic island that has emerged millions of years ago in the Atlantic Ocean. In its centre lies the highest point in whole Spain – the great cone of Teide.

With a variety of climates, Tenerife is also a unique place on Earth where some of the most amazing ecosystems survive one next to another. So once you come here, you will be able to see tropical crops, semi-desert areas with drought-resistant plants, but also vast valleys covered with pine forests. And all of that while enjoying a magnificent view over the Atlantic Sea and the coast of West Africa.

But the best part is that you can reach Tenerife fast and easy, without any issues. You can do this either by plane or ferry and once you arrive you will quickly move around the island with the public bus network. In addition, it may be an excellent idea to rent a car, since it is quite cheap and there is a good network of toll-free motorways all around the island.

The Origins of Modern Tenerife

The Canary Islands were always attractive to people, even in the ancient times. The classical Greek authors wrote about the mysterious land that lies behind the Hercules Pillars. The islands are mainly famous for its strong and fierce-looking dogs called “verdinos” or “bardinos”. Even the name Canary comes from Latin word “canis” which means a dog. Tenerife got its name from the high mountain peak of Teide, which was referred to as the white (tene) mountain (ife).

Before the Spanish conquered this archipelago in the late 15th century, it was mainly inhabited by the local tribes called the Guanches. After the conquest, many of them moved to the New World and mostly to Venezuela and Cuba.

The Island of Thousand Experiences

Once you come to Tenerife, your adventure will start immediately because there is always something going on the island. But among other activities, you should definitively visit the historic centres where you will be able to see some fantastic representatives of local architecture from various periods. And among others, you should definitively go to the historic centre of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the capital city of the island. The central church dating back to the 17th century is the main attraction, surrounded by the old streets, houses and plazas where you can grab something to eat, for example. Y

ou should also take a look into one of many local museums such as the Military Museum or the Fine Art Museum. But most of the people are usually most impressed with The Museum of Science and Cosmos, which is basically a combination of traditional museum and a theme park.

Also, don’t miss the Red de Calidad Tenerife Rural, which is, in fact, a network of centres that show the guests the authentic values of the rural world by helping them visit various wineries, farms, ethnographic museums, pottery centres, etc. That way you will get to know the Tenerife in an entertaining but still informative way.

From Private Accommodation to All-Inclusive Service

No matter if you plan to visit Tenerife for a couple of days, or you intend to stay at least a week or two, the island will surely provide you with various possibilities. Visitors mostly decide to spend their vacation and holidays in hotels or hostels, but there are also people who love their privacy above everything else, so they choose to rent apartments or villas instead. As an island with a long tradition of hospitality and tourism, Tenerife disposes of hundreds of hotels that range from the modest ones to the all-inclusive hotels, providing five-star service. For instance, Tenerife offers you an opportunity to book an excellent, spacious, and well-furnished room in an old, 18th-century manor, with a peaceful and warm atmosphere. Or, if you wish to have a fun experience, then you are welcome to stay in crowded hotels with indoor and outdoor pools, sauna and high-quality restaurants, private beaches and polite staff. However, should decide for a single variant, you can always find excellently located an apartment or even B&B. Tenerife is really open to all possibilities, and you are the one to choose which suits you best.

Local Dishes Bring a Whiff of Canary Islands

Visiting Tenerife will unavoidably make your trip unforgettable when it comes to cuisine and food. Namely, you can always find restaurants that offer international and ‘already seen’ meals. But, what is specific about Tenerife is that it provides its visitors with an incredible offer of local specialities. Of course, there are not many such restaurants, but you will recognise them right away since they offer menus with soups, stews, and grilled fish. The island disposes of a great variety of vegetables and fruits, which is why exactly these make the foundation of almost any great Canarian meal. Don’t leave the island without trying the well-known wrinkled potatoes, or how locals call it ‘papas arrugadas’. Potatoes are wrinkled because they are boiled in salt water, and served with two kinds of delicious sauce – a spicy and a green one.

Fish lovers will be treated with local specialities like ‘caldereta’ and ‘sancocho canario’. These two represent salted fish served with a ‘mojo’ sauce. Everyone who has tasted fish meals in Tenerife ended up doing research back at home on how to prepare these never-to-be-forgotten recipes.

When it comes to deserts, those with a sweet-tooth will be thrilled because deserts in Tenerife inevitably consider mixing honey, almond cream, eggs, rum, and a variety of tropical fruit. Worth trying are ‘bienmesabe’ and fried bananas.

A Wide Variety of Spectacular Activities

An excellent climate and natural surrounding make Tenerife an excellent spot for doing all kinds of activities. For that reason, the local population has developed various interesting as well as exciting excursions, adrenaline rush activities, picnics and trips. No matter if you are visiting the island alone, with a friend or with the whole family, you will undoubtedly have the chance to find something for yourself. Sports that are modern today, like volleyball, tennis or even golf are available, with dozens of courts and brand new equipment. However, what is most attractive in Tenerife is the activity of whale watching. Since the south-west coast of the island is a hot spot for watching these incredible mammals, you may be fortunate enough to spot species like a killer whale, blue whale, pilot whale or baleen whale.

Apart from whale watching, one can always choose the popular scuba diving or sailing activities. Many visitors decide to take a chance to meet the underwater life with experienced trainers and guides, and in case you have never tried them, you are welcome to dive in Tenerife and discover the unseen beauties.

5 Ways to Bag a Bargain Flight to New York

Whether travelling on business or pleasure, here are just 5 ways to get to New York and back again without breaking the bank in the process.

  1. Shop for Flights via a Budget Flight Provider

One way to instantly save a few quid whenever you plan to travel, and wherever you plan to travel to for that matter, is to shirk the better known airlines and flight providers out there. These companies are able to charge more for flights, even when using the same airlines, based entirely on the fact that we recognise and so trust their name. Hence, they genuinely are dining out on their name or reputation.

Meanwhile, lesser known of online booking agencies, such as Globehunters, one of the UK’s leading providers of cheap airline tickets to New York, have to ensure to provide better prices a high percentage of if not all the time because they haven’t fame to fall back on. Hence, their only means of drumming up custom is through ensuring they provide something else instead, and what is more likely to attract and make loyal clients and customers than by beating the big names when it comes to something as expensive as air travel?

  1. Search Incognito

For those unfamiliar with what browsing the internet incognito means exactly, refer to Google Support.

In summary, going incognito online means that the sites you visit and what you do online via an incognito browser window are not saved to your search history. It also means that cookies are not created while you browse. In turn this prevents airline sites and google itself from collecting information about what you search for frequently and preventing either from hiking up the prices when you perform numerous searches for the same items – for example airline flights to New York.

It is argued whether searching incognito really does ensure you always get to see the cheapest prices available, but with it being so quick, easy and free to do, why take the risk? Rather, ahead of looking online for flights simply switch over into incognito mode and you needn’t even concern yourself with whether it’s true – or pay more if it is.

  1. Travel Midweek

Book a flight heading out and returning midweek to save the most, no matter the airline; flights departing from the UK and headed for New York as well as those returning struggle to fill up most on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Hence, tickets sell for the least on these two days.

Meanwhile, it might surprise some to learn that Saturday is also an unpopular day on which to travel. Therefore, for those who require travelling at the weekend, always opt to do so on a Saturday. Sunday flight prices, in contrast to Saturday prices, are eye wateringly high though, be warned.

  1. Watch Out for Error Flights

For those who do not necessarily need to book too far in advance and who are able to take a more flexible approach to travelling, it is always worth keeping an eye out for error flights.

With literally thousands of flights taking off every day and airlines being busy 24/7 to ensure all their flights are listed online, this means that there is real potential to capitalise on any errors made when imputing information. And these mistakes happen surprisingly often, fortunately for use travellers and rather unfortunately for flight providers.

To learn how to spot or find these error flights amongst the rest, bookmark and make regular visits to the Flynous website which posts errors as they occur.

  1. Follow the Telegraph Newspaper Guide

Lastly, for a wealth of even more tips, tricks and means of getting to New York on a shoestring budget, take full advantage of the Telegraph Newspaper’s Travel Section Guide: The Cheapest Way to Get to New York. As well as offering further advice on how to bag a budget flight to New York, the Telegraph Guide also provides ideas as to how to get to New York without flying for those willing to take a round-a-about trip if it means saving some serious pounds – or dollars, as the case may be.

Five Reasons Why the Lake District Makes the Perfect Staycation Destination

With the impact of Brexit already affecting the cost of our holidays abroad, more UK residents are looking for a destination a little closer to home.

In fact, The Guardian recently reported that there has been a sharp rise in holidaymakers opting for a staycation instead of heading abroad.

So where on Earth do you go? There are plenty of great options, but there is one destination which stands out from the rest.

The Lake District in the North West of England is easily one of the most beautiful places in the UK but that’s not all it offers.

There really is something for people of all ages and to prove that, here are five reasons why the Lake District makes the perfect staycation destination.

The Breathtaking Scenery

The Lake District is undoubtedly one of, if not the, most beautiful place in the UK. With nearly 900 square miles of peaceful lakes, rolling hills, towering peaks and forests, you’ll grow tired before you run out of breathtakingly beautiful photos to capture.

You can take in the stunning surroundings in a whole manner of different ways too. For the more adventurous holidaymakers you can trek up Scafell Pike, the highest peak in England, and take in all the Lakes has to offer.

For those of you who fancy something a little less tasking, you can appreciate the beauty of the region from plenty of lower locations too. Take a look at this list from the Lake District National Park website for some inspiration.

A Wealth of Activities for All Ages

Along with the amazing landscapes come plenty of opportunities to try out a whole host of different activities.

Obviously walking or hiking is the biggest and most widely enjoyed activity in the Lakes for many reasons, one of the best being that it is something everyone can enjoy.

Take a look at Walking Englishman, a handy site which describes the lengths and difficulties of all the walks in the Lakes, making it easy for you to find one most suitable for your fitness or taste for adventure.

If walking isn’t what you’re looking for, there’s still plenty of other options to keep the whole family busy. Try your hand at a number of water sports across the various lakes including Windermere and Coniston, including canoeing, kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding and more.

For those keen to brave to waters, there are opportunities to go ghyll scrambling, an all action activity which involves swimming, climbing, jumping and sliding up and down beautiful mountain rivers and springs.

Amazing Accommodation

Whether you are looking for an all-action staycation or a relaxing romantic week away, there are accommodation options for everyone in the Lakes.

We spoke to Lake District County Hotels, who have three different locations around the Lakes. They said, “There’s simply nowhere else in the country where you can enjoy a luxury hotel stay accompanied by stunning lakeside views from your bedroom.

No matter where you stay, you’re only a short drive from either the amazing lakes or one of the charming towns of the area, so there’s something for everyone.”

It’s Rich in Culture

If the thought of scaling up a mountain or swimming through a lake is your worst nightmare, the area still has plenty to offer.

The Lake District is incredibly fortunate to be the home to a number of respected and celebrated writers and literary works.

If you love poetry, what better way to spend your time than taking in the beautiful surroundings which inspired much of William Wordsworth’s publications? You can even visit the town of Cockermouth, the birthplace and home of Wordsworth.

Take a look around the beautiful Wordsworth House and Gardens which are a treat for any literary fan.

That’s not all though. Lovers of timeless children’s stories can visit Beatrix Potter’s home, which is brilliantly immersive.

Fans of children’s fiction can also visit all of the locations from the classic 1930s and 40s books Swallows and Amazons.

Delicious Food

One of the greatest things about heading on holiday is enjoying the local cuisine and thankfully the Lake District has lots of delicacies to enjoy.

Meat lovers can tuck into a classic Cumberland sausage, those who have a sweet tooth can visit Cartmel for the best sticky toffee pudding in the country and walkers can enjoy the best hiking fuel available by nibbling at a piece of Kendal mint cake.

For lovers of fine dining, there are a number of brilliant restaurants in the area too. From cosy country pubs to Michelin star standard restaurants, there’s more brilliant food in the region than you can shake a stick at.

Take a look at this great guide from the Telegraph for a rundown of all places to look out for during your staycation.

5 of the Best Hotels in Turks and Caicos

A holiday spent in the real life paradise that is the Caribbean country of Turks and Caicos deserves to also be spent in a hotel as awe-inspiring and luxurious as the destination itself. For that reason, here are five of TCI’s best hotels, along with a little of what makes each so special.

1# The Blue Haven Resort

To kick off is the Blue Haven Resort. Located in Providenciales, the most popular region of TCI amongst its tourists, the Blue Haven is one of the Turks and Caicos Islands’ newest and most exciting resorts.

As well as being equipped with all the luxuries expected of a four star hotel, including sumptuous private suites, a choice of onsite eateries, its own spa, gym and gourmet coffee shop café and grocery store, the Blue Haven is as well the only resort in the whole of TCI to boast its very own private marina.

Hence, for unrivalled luxury, amenities and for those arriving via private yacht, the Blue Haven is the perfect choice.

2# The Beach House

The Beach House is one of TCI’s only boutique Hotels, and as such provides the perfect option for those looking for something a little less like a resort and a little more special – in a more characterful but no less luxurious way.

Occupying an enchanting and impressive colonial style beach front mansion house that overlooks Grace Bay, touted as the world’s best beach, the Beach House Resort provides a choice of private suites – many of which also look out over Grace Bay Beach. Meanwhile, its remaining suites overlook TCI’s abundant and exotic countryside and mango groves.

A place with real character and charm as well as providing the highest level of luxury and service, the Beach House is also home to its own onsite restaurant, Kitchen 218 which is well loved and known of in Grace Bay and beyond for serving fantastic lionfish and fresh seafood.

3# COMO Parrot Cay

If neither of the two stunning options described above take your fancy how does a hotel and resort occupying its very own private island sound?

COMO Parrot Cay is not only the name given to a TCI resort but as well the name of a private island in TCI which provides the most popular accommodation amongst the Hollywood glitterati. A favoured holidaying spot with the likes of Justin Bieber and Cara Delevingne, as reported via The Daily Mail article: How celebrity hotspot Parrot Cay got its mojo back, for those looking to spend some serious cash and in return receive unrivalled privacy as well as rent their very own villa in paradise, there is no competition; COMO Parrot Cay is less a resort and more a millionaire’s village glittering in the Caribbean sea.

With a VIP list of regulars and holiday makers gracing its shores though, do not expect to join them for less than a VIP – or ‘very impressive price tag’ to spell it out; the least expensive accommodations booked during the least popular seasons at COMO Parrot Cay begin at around £500 per person per night, and the price rises even more impressively depending on the size and location of the accommodation or villa you opt to stay in. Hence, this is perhaps one TCI resort that is best kept for truly special occasions.

4# The Alexandra Resort

A fantastic option for families holidaying or wishing to holiday in TCI, the Alexandra blends both luxury and low cost, at least considering the high standard of its suites and wealth of onsite amenities, as well as its prime location.

In contrast to COMO Parrot Cay, the Alexandra Resort is self acclaimed as ‘the best value of all the Turks & Caicos resorts’ and certainly does provide by far the best value resort in the massively popular Providenciales Locale which is situated on the world famous Grace Bay Beach.

Then, providing both luxury and yet affordable suites, the Alexandra Resort definitely deserves its place on this top five lo-down, and is a brilliant choice for families looking to head out to TCI for their summer holidays.

5# Amanyara

Amanyara, situated in the TCI region of North West region of Providenciales, is not simply a luxury resort; as explained and celebrated via its website, Amanyara offers an experience and means of enjoying Turks and Caicos in an entirely unique way. Championing yoga and the meditative life, this is the ideal resort for those who are looking for something more than simply luxury and great service in a resort.

For that reason alone it deserves its place as one of TCI’s most brilliant places to stay, especially for those familiar already with TCI and looking for new ways to experience the country as well as those looking to soak up some spirituality as well as sun whilst on holiday.
