“No trip to Tenerife would be complete without a glimpse at the Drago Milenario (‘Dragon Tree’), the national symbol of the island. So-called because of its red resin, which looks like ‘dragon’s blood’ and is reputed to have numerous medicinal benefits, it has been revered by the local community for centuries. This particular tree, rumoured to be 1,000 years old, is the oldest of the kind on the island. You can see it- alongside a collection of other endemic species- in the Parque del Drago Gardens (or stand in the square beside the Church of San Marco for a free vantage point).”

“Aunque el tiempo en el norte suele ser algo peor, merece la pena desplazarse hasta allí para darse un baño en estas piscinas. Son totalmente gratuitas. Although the weather is not as good as at the south of the island, it is worth going to swim into one or many of the different natural pools that you will find in Garachico. Entrance is for free. ”

“The Cave of the Wind is a volcanic cavity located in the neighborhood of Icod de los Vinos that bears the same name. It was formed 27,000 years ago in basaltic lava from the first eruptive phase of the Pico Viejo volcano, located next to Teide (Tenerife, Canary Islands).”

“Garachico lies in the north-east of Tenerife in the region of Icod-Daute-Isla Baja, covering 29.28 km2 (11.3 sq miles). At least half of that area is covered with Canarian pine trees, volcanic scenery and an ancient cliff that separates the historic quarter from the hills. Garachico has a wealth of architectural heritage from the 16th and 17th century which has been kept in wonderful condition, leading it to be declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1994. It was also granted the status of "Villa" (which is roughly equivalent to the British status of Borough) and Port by King Alfonso XIII in 1916. On the coast of the municipality there are several vast estates with banana groves, whilst the farmland on the hillsides was mainly used to supply the families who farmed it. The town also has a recently built marina by the historic quarter, as well as a series of beaches made of pebbles and black sand, and various cliff faces. Special mention should be made of the natural swimming pools of El Caletón, one of the most popular bathing areas, as well as the impressive rock formation rising from the sea in front of them. After the conquest of Tenerife, Garachico became the main fishing and trade port on the Island until it was destroyed by the volcanic eruption. This golden age drew many highly influential families to settle here, which is apparent from the wealthy layout of its streets and buildings. Info taken from webtenerife”

“No te puedes perder una de las playas más tranquilas del norte de Tenerife. La playa de San Marcos, en Icod de los Vinos, tiene una forma de concha que la resguarda del oleaje característico en la mayoría de las playas de esta zona de la Isla. Su arena volcánica es de color negro y reina un ambiente familiar bastante concurrido durante los meses de verano. La playa cuenta todos los servicios a tu alcance, tales como duchas, alquiler de hamacas, restaurantes con terrazas con vistas al mar, etc.”
