It had been the very first Saturday in quite a while that we chose to load up the car with dogs and water bowls and go out for taking inside our beautiful island. We didn’t go far, only about 20 miles from Los Cristianos to your quaint Canarian fishing village often bypassed as people speed across the TF1 either to or from Santa Cruz. It was quite some time since we had been to Poris de Abona and that is a shame as it is just the sort of spot to go if you wish to leave the tourists behind for an hour or so.
The Tenerife Forums has kept its charms specifically in the centre where nothing has changed in decades and life still continues within a relaxed way. On any holiday to you may very well see anglers about the quay or folks topping the tan. This time was no different – a lone fisherman stood waiting around for 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 that the council have provided. They are lovely and get a good amount of benches therefore it wasn’t very long before we stopped to the girls to have a drink so we enjoyed the sea views.
In the promenade we got to the small, sheltered curving beach which is loved by locals but never crowded. The magnificent water is shallow and then we aimed to tempt the dogs into cool teneriife but which had been not going to happen.
From the beach we took within the sights and sounds of the village, which was deserted and silent! I needed hoped to hook the farmers market inside the plaza through the Church, that i had heard includes a good selection of local produce however it was late afternoon and so the place was just like a ghost town.
We continued over the coastal road, which turns into a rough track and reached the new red and white lighthouse that dominates the skyline and it is an icon of Poris. Nevertheless this is not the first that was integrated 1902.
