Design projection: Guía de Isora Ayuntamiento. The Tenerife Cabildo has announced that the preliminary procedures for the west coast port are starting. The new port, in Fonsalía on the Guía de Isora coast around midway between Los Cristianos and Los Gigantes, is planned as a vital point of communications and logistics for the four western islands which form the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and the initial planning procedures now underway to designate the site as a port and service zone are a prerequisite for the Canarian Government to put the works out to tender.  The new port will be a floating platform in the form ofREAD MORE

Photo: Arona Ayuntamiento. I’ve had several enquiries today from people who’ve seen Playa de las Vistas on the webcam and are concerned over where the sunbeds have gone – and whether there is another issue as there was previously with the contractor. The answer is simple and unproblematic. The council is conditioning the beach and cleaning the sand in preparation for the summer season, it has announced today, works that have not been carried out for some years. The works are part of a larger project to improve Arona’s coastline which will take months, but as far as Las Vistas is concerned, all will be back to normalREAD MORE

Updated 27 April 2017: The arguments continue about whether the “mamotreto” is demolished or can be legalized, but the whole case behind it, the Caso Las Teresitas, has now seen the Courts sentence the former mayor of Santa Cruz, Miguel Zerolo, to seven years in prison for embezzlement and corruption.

It has long been seen as a pocket-lining exercise in a class of its own, and nowREAD MORE

A 30-year-old woman died this evening after her car fell from the Camino El Morito onto the shingle beach at Los Roques in Fasnia. The incident happened shortly before 7pm when emergency services say that they were called out with reports of the accident, but sadly, with a fall of 30m, bomberos were required to cut the female driver out of the vehicle, and paramedics attending the scene were only able to confirm that she had died from the injuries sustained in the impact.READ MORE

Graphic: Aemet Canarias. Updated 26 April: The first rains reached La Palma this morning, and got to La Gomera this afternoon. Now, this evening, the first wet weather has arrived at Tenerife, with at least a couple of heavy showers in the west. Aemet says that this depression (the dark part of the video below) is approaching us and will bring an instability that’s forecast to last to and possibly through the weekend, some of it quite stormy.
