TENERIFE DAY 6: AROUND THE CAPITAL CITY

16/01/2017

We tried our luck to reach a light house near Faro de Anaga, on the east side of the island.

Well we were unlucky again. What is with light houses on this island. Seems like you need a helicopter if you want to reach them anyother way then by foot. We were spending time around that part of the island that day. Half of the day driving blindly around to reach the light house and the other half we were visiting places like Playa de Las Teresitas, a beautiful sandy beach on which the sand was delivered all the way from Africa, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, a major city through which we just drove and admired it from the car and then all the way to the other side to the Taganana and Benijo. We even used the mud road straight ahead from Benijo to try to reach the light house but we turned back eventually because it got kind of dangerous. It’s a beautiful scenery from Taganana to Benijo. We had a lunch in a small restaurant almost on the beach side just out of Taganana called Costa Africa. The restaurant does not look fancy on the outside and they don’t even have menus, just things they have written by hand on a piece of paper but the food was amazing. Probably best sea food I had on the island, besides sea food paella in Orange.

Spet smo poskusili svojo srečo in skušali doseči svetilnik blizu Faro de Anaga na vzhodni strain otoka. Ampak, zopet smo imeli smolo. Očitno na tem otoku potrebuješ helicopter, če želiš doseči svetilnike še kako drugače kakor peš. Polovico dneva smo se vozili okoli tega dela otoka in skušali doseči svetilnik, vmes pa smo občudovali čudovite razglede in skrite kotičke, ki jih ponuja otok. Drugo polovico dneva pa smo si ogledovali kotičke kot so plaža Playa de Las Teresitas, čudovita peščena plaza na katero so pesek navozili kar iz Afrike, glavno mesto Santa Cruz katerega smo si ogledali iz avta in vse na drugo stran tistega dela otoka, do kraja Taganana in Benijo. Naprej od mesta Benijo vodi celo makedamska cesta po kateri smo skušali priti do svetilnika, vendar smo se kasneje obrnili saj je postalo prenevarno. Pokrajina med Taganana in Benijo je čudovita, polna klifov in skal ob katere buta ocean. Kosilo smo imeli v majhni restavraciji ob plaza malo naprej od Taganana. Restavracija se imenuje Costa Adeje in na pogled ni najlepša vendar pa sem tam jedla verjetno najboljšo hrano na otoku, poleg morske paelle v Orange-u. V restavraciji nimajo niti stalnega menija, ampak majo tisto kar ponujajo kar na roko napisano na list papirja.
