what‘s new

Jet2.com

New Glasgow connection announced Jet2.com has just announced the opening of a new base at Glasgow Airport. According to the company the move creates up to 150 new jobs and sees the introduction of nine low fare destinations from the Scottish hub, including Tenerife. Jet2.com will also offer the region’s only direct service to Nice, as well as direct low fare flights to Alicante, Dalaman, Faro, Tunisia, Majorca, Paphos and Sharm el Sheikh. Ian Doubtfire, Managing Director of Jet2.com, said, “we are thrilled to be launching at Glasgow Airport and feel that the region will benefit considerably from our friendly low fare service and the resulting investment into the area. It has been a turbulent time for the travel industry with some airlines and operators ceasing to trade this year. In contrast, we have continued to go from strength to strength”

The company has a range of introductory prices from Glasgow on offer. Flights to Tenerife start at £56.99 one way including taxes departing from 1st April 2011, or a package holiday from £329 per person for seven nights half board in Playa de las Américas. For more information about Jet2.com or for bookings, visit www.Jet2.com for flights or www.jet2holidays.com for package holidays.



Hit me with your tickle stick! Ken Dodd, among the UK’s most loved funny men, is a regular visitor to Tenerife and lists the place amongst one of his top get-away destinations. During his most recent trip he was looking for somewhere special to dine, and on the advice and in the company of his good friends Barbara Law and George Reed, sampled the delights of El Molino Blanco, and was very impressed indeed. Ken is pictured here with El Molino Blanco owner Felipe.

Beeb in Guía Four BBC productions will be the focus of one of the key workshops in the MiradasDoc, the fifth Guia de Isora international festival of documentary film. ‘The documentary in television’ has been a regular feature of the festival, though previously has focused on Spanish productions. This year though British directors and programmes feature, including nature documentaries such as David Attenborough’s Planet Earth: From Pole to Pole, which took four years to film, Gareth Edward’s End Day, which uses science fiction to predict four possible routes towards global destruction, Fight for Life, a series looking at different patients struggling to survive, and a documentary produced by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Rolling Stones, Exile on Main Street. MiradasDoc takes place in Guía de Isora from October 29th to November 6th.

Now you see it!

Turismo de Tenerife has come up with an excellent and direct way of letting you know what’s going on. 30 large display panels have been installed on the main streets and avenues of Tenerife’s busy tourist zones, in Puerto de la Cruz. Santiago del Teide, Adeje and Arona, promoting events that are happening around the island. According to the island’s tourism councillor José Manuel Bermúdez, the campaign is aimed at “offering our visitors all the information they need to enjoy their stay on Tenerife”. The panels will be updated on a monthly basis, and will also carry information about the nearest tourist info point and how to get there, as well as other information sources for tourists. There are also new information units at both of the island’s airports and at major hotels, to ensure, says Bermúdez, that tourists get the very most out of their stay here.

The European Beach Volley Challenge October 8th, 9th and 10th

The Tenerife Champions Cup 2010 returns to Siam Park, Costa Adeje on October 8th, 9th and 10th. This will be the fourth edition of a competition which is considered a top event in the world’s beach volley calendar and will feature international teams who are sure to delight the audience with their sheer energy. There will be four teams, including the Spanish pair Liliana Steiner and Elsa Baquerizo. There will be nine matches daily, and for the first time the challenge will include women. The Tenerife Champions Cup was one of the four finalists for the

award Major Event of the Year in Spain and Portugal in the Grand Gala Premios Eventoplus. This year’s event takes place over a festival weekend, El Puente del Pilar, so it is sure to be well attended. TheTenerife Champions Cup is supported by the Tenerife Cabildo, Turismo de Tenerife, the Ayuntamiento de Adeje and the Real Federación Española de Voleibol, as well as numerous prestigious sponsors.

Fiestas Patronales, Adeje First half of October

The Fiestas de Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación and Santa Úrsula are very important for the borough of Adeje, and virtually take over from the Fiestas Lustrales which have occupied most

the magazine

of September. These fiestas include religious, cultural, sporting and festive events as well as a traditional Romería (October 10th) in which people from all the surrounding villages take

part. Local people wearing traditional Canarian costumes on board gypsy wagons will encourage you to try various culinary delights and drinks as they make their merry way up the Calle Grande accompanied by singers and musicians. A fun event for all the family and a wonderful opportunity to see how the people of the island, both young and old, care for their culture and keep their traditions alive. The day’s finale is the Baile de Magos that night, for which you must wear traditional costume if you want to attend.

Aromatherapy Background

Essential oils and their uses

Aromatherapy is a word which conjures up thoughts of deliciously perfumed massages, infusions and inhalations. It is the practice of using plant oils, including essential oils (the pure essence of a plant), for psychological and physical well being.

Here are the benefits of some of the most popular oils:

Although the term aromatherapy was not used until the 20th century, it has actually been used for thousands of years to create harmony and balance, fight disease and in some cases even to embalm the dead. The cultures associated with its origins are the Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. Nowadays more and more natural products are used, including essential oils, for therapeutic, cosmetic and aromatic purposes.

n Bergamot: Can be used in a vaporiser or as an incense, diluted in the bath or blended with massage oils. Generally uplifting, it is used to treat stress, anxiety, depression, anorexia and skin problems such as eczema or psoriasis. n Chamomile: Can be blended with massage oils, used in steam or vapour treatments or mixed with lotions or creams. Soothing and calming, it is also a natural antibiotic, antiseptic, antidepressant and is generally uplifting. n Eucalyptus: Effective against respiratory problems. It is also used as an antiseptic, antispasmodic, decongestant, diuretic and stimulant. It has cooling and deodorising characteristics, helping with fevers, migraines and muscular aches and pains. n Jasmine: Known for its relaxing properties, it helps with depression and childbirth and also enhances libido. Jasmine is also good for respiratory problems, addictions and generally calming tension and stress.

Nowadays, more natural products are used for various therapies

Oils can be applied to the skin, inhaled, or used in infusions

n Lavender: One of the most popular and great for stress relief. Also an antiseptic, anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory agent, deodorant, diuretic and sedative. Great in the bath, as a massage oil, or put a few drops on your pillow. n Patchouli: Has powerful skincare properties, promoting cell growth when applied to the skin. Also helps to relieve anxiety, depression, fatigue, curb addictions and reduce cellulite and bloating. n Peppermint: Cooling and refreshing, it enhances mental alertness and boosts energy. It also uplifts moods, sharpens focus, combats irritation and redness, and helps with congestion and digestion.

Visitors to the beach at El Médano in early August had no idea they were in for a weekend of fashion, fun and fiesta until the music started pumping out and the beautiful Patricia Yurena (Miss Spain 2008) was escorted onto the catwalk by ten striking male models. They were followed by a procession of local beauties sporting the latest styles. In keeping with the watersports vibe of El Médano, surfboards and bikinis were out in force,

North Tenerife While the south enjoys mainly dry, warm and sunny weather giving its characteristic arid countryside, by contrast the north is verdant and green. The prevailing north easterly winds known as Los Alisios, bring cooler air across the sea which, when it reaches the warmer land mass of the island, condenses and forms clouds. Low cloud is common in some areas, and there is more rainfall, hence the lush countryside. When this cooler air reaches the peak of Mount Teide, it meets the warmer and dryer air of the south, and so the cloud heading southwards usually evaporates. Mount Teide acts as a weather barrier between the two areas. The north is typically a few degrees cooler than the south, especially in the winter, so when visiting don’t forget to take a jacket or cardigan. Apart from this difference in climate, 22

while the south has a more modern infrastructure and plenty of leisure activities to offer, the north has a more traditional architecture and rural, laid back lifestyle. The attractive Canarian balconies are in abundance, and there are some magnificent architectural examples to be visited as well as some country manors. The historic centres of the north which are worthy of a visit are the former capital La Laguna (where guided tours are available), La Orotava, Garachico, Puerto de la Cruz and Icod de los Vinos, while the most interesting villages and hamlets are situated within the areas of Anaga and Teno which are also a walker’s paradise. In all these towns and villages, you will find plenty of opportunities to sample the local cuisine.

La Laguna The historic town of San Cristobal de La Laguna, now home of the university, was

declared a Cultural Heritage of Humanity by Unesco in 1999 and contains around 400 buildings which benefit from some level of monumental or environmental protection. To help you to see as much as possible, walking routes have been designed for independent visitors or alternatively you can take advantage of the guided tours which leave regularly from the tourism office. Groups can reserve their own tours on weekdays. There are also guided and self-guided tours of the interior of La Laguna’s churches and temples. La Laguna has too many historical buildings to mention, but some of those most worthy of a visit are: Iglesia de la Concepción, Casa de Alvarado Bracamonte y de los Capitanes Generales (housing the municipal tourism office and the international centre for the conservation of heritage), Santa Iglesia Cathedral, Casa del Corregidor, Convento de Santa Catalina de Siena, october 2010

Ermita de San Miguel, Iglesia de Santo Domingo de Guzman, Ermita de San Cristóbal, Palacio de Nava, Palacio de Lercaro (Museo de la Historía) and many, many more including the beautifully renovated Teatro Leal. A walk around La Laguna really is a journey back in time, and to make life easier, many of the streets have been pedestrianised. For more information about La Laguna and guided tours, go online to www. visitalalaguna.es or call 922 825046.

La Orotava The town of La Orotava conserves its historical centre which remains perfectly separated from modern constructions. It has been declared a precinct of historical and artistic interest and is also listed as a monumental precinct. Balconies and typical Canarian courtyards and patios prevail in the old quarter with cobbled streets, many of which have been pedestrianised. The town has much

the magazine

history to reveal, not least of which is the origin of the tradition of creating a giant sand carpet in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento and carpeting the streets with flowers at Corpus Christi. Discover all of this and more by taking a leisurely walk through this relatively small area. Begin at Ermita del Calvario (near the bus station) and work your way uphill along the cobbled streets. Eventually you will reach the Ayuntamiento with its big plaza, continue to Hijuela de Botánico, Casa de Los Balcones and the Casa del Turista (where you can stop to buy souvenirs and gifts) in Calle San Francisco. Further on are the Hospital de la Santísima Trinidad, then downhill to the Casa de Lercaro in Calle Colegio, Casa Monteverde and the beautiful Iglesia Matriz de la Concepción. On the corner of Calles Inocencio García and Tomás Zerolo is the monument to the carpet makers, and other locations to visit are the Casa Torrehermosa for crafts,

the Iglesia de Santo Domingo and finally the Ex-Convento de San Benito Abad which houses the Museo de Artesanía Iberoamericana.

Garachico Garachico was the main trading port of Tenerife until the volcanic eruption of 1706 destroyed the port and much of the town. Founded by Cristóbal de Ponte in 1496, the town still guards architectural evidence of its past in the form of the mansions, convents and churches which escaped the effects of the eruption. In 1980, King Juan Carlos awarded the municipality the fine arts gold medal for having dedicated so much attention to its artistic and historic heritage and for the care given to its streets, plazas and gardens. The town has also received many other national distinctions and awards. A walk through the town is highly recommended, and don’t miss the Parque 23

de la antigua Puerta de Tierra (where there is a large wine press), Castillo de San Miguel, Monumento al Emigrante Canario (from where there is a wonderful view of the town and port, as well as the flow taken by the lava during the eruption of 1706). Also, it is worth wandering through stone paths which wind their way around the beautiful natural rock pools which are very popular for bathing.

Puerto de la Cruz Puerto de la Cruz is where tourism began in Tenerife, in the 19th century. Even then, many Britons visited the town and this influence is clearly visible. The origin of this can be seen from the Plaza Viera y Clavijo where the old Hotel Martiánez began touristic activity in 1866. Taking a walk through the Paseo Aguilar y Quesada, popularly known as the palm tree walk, you can see the cliffs of Martiánez where significant archaeological evidence of Guanche activity has been found in caves. Arriving at the coast you can see the 24

black volcanic sand beach of the same name, Playa de Martiánez, and the Lago Martiánez, a magnificent leisure area designed by the Lanzarote artist César Manrique. Heading up into the town, walk through Calle Iriarte, and head for Plaza de Charco and Plaza de Europa. This is the old town where you will find many buildings (including top restaurants) which have magnificent courtyards, interior patios and galleries, and of course typical Canarian balconies abound. Don’t miss buildings like the Casa de Miranda, the old Customs House, the archaeological museum, Iglesia de San Francisco and of course the fishing port. Playa Jardín is a wonderful location for sun worshipping, and two attractions which should not be missed are the Botanical Gardens and Loro Parque.

Icod de los Vinos The historic town of Icod de los Vinos also belongs to the categories of heritage of cultural interest and historical precinct. The town’s construction began

in the 15th century, and it has been added to and adapted according to private and social needs over the years. Nowadays, Icod has a vibrant and popular shopping centre within the old town where there many buildings and plazas worthy of a visit, including La Iglesia Matriz de San Marcos, situated within La Plaza Andrés de Lorenzo Cáceres which has pretty and well kept gardens. From here there is a good overhead view of the famous Drago tree. The church houses many works of art and also acts as a museum. The Iglesia de San Agustín looks over the Plaza de Leon Huerta and was constructed in the mid-16th century. The church houses various tablas and sculptures and has preserved its original arches. Climbing the main steps in the Plaza de Los Cáceres, you arrive in the Plaza de la Pila or Constitución which is surrounded by marvellous examples of Canarian architecture dating back to the 17th and 19th centuries.

Jaguar XFR What Car? Magazine has awarded the Jaguar XF the title of Best Executive Car 2010, which is impressive bearing in mind it is the third consecutive year the XF has driven away with the prize. But this year it was with its powerful new 3-litre diesel engine. But the new Jaguar XFR takes that a little further, fusing sports car style with the refinement of a luxury saloon and making sporting hearts beat that much faster. Certainly not an old man’s car, the supercharged XFR with its mighty 5-litre V8 510PS engine resembles a wolf in sheep’s clothing and represents the most exhilarating expression of Jaguar sporting luxury.

The exterior design theme features a unique front bumper with ‘Supercharged’ script, twin bonnet air intakes, flared sills, quadruple exhaust tailpipes, body colour rear valance and rear spoiler. All this combines to give an aggressive looking vehicle deserving the magnificent feline name. The 20-inch Nevis alloy wheels also carry the ‘Supercharged’ script. Inside the car, the instrument panel and doors have a unique dark mesh aluminium finish, R badges on the steering wheel and instrument panel and instrument dials with red pointers and the ‘Supercharged’ motif. There is a full colour touch-screen, Bluetooth compatibility and automatic climate control to add to the

yet firm soft grain leather front sports seats have a memory function and can be heated or cooled. The rear seats of the same material fold down in a 60:40 split to give a greater loading area. The 5-litre engine is complemented by Jaguar 6-speed automatic transmission with Jaguar Sequential Shift and Jaguar Drive Selector, JaguarDrive Control with Dynamic and Winter modes, cruise control with automatic speed limiter, rain sensing wipers, automatic Bi-xenon headlamps, electrically heated and folding door mirrors, autodimming rear view mirror, rear parking aid with touch-screen visual indicator, navigation system, heated front windscreen and red brake calipers. A wide range of optional equipment is also available for the XFR which comes with a choice of two solid and six metallic exterior colours, two of which are unique to the vehicle, and there are four interior colour choices. The XFR is brilliantly docile when you want to make chilled progress, like a cat stalking its prey, but also crushingly effective when you want to flex your right foot and move in for the kill. The throaty roar from the exhaust pipes is a clue to the XFR’s performance which is astonishing, reaching 60mph in only 4.7 seconds, but hold on a while longer because it goes from 50 to 70mph in just 1.9 seconds, making it an unbeatable overtaking machine. Its top speed is electronically limited to 155mph. The XFR grips the road, no matter what you put it through, with the new electronically controlled suspension system keeping the body taut and flat even when you’re tearing around undulating and winding roads. This car also contains the biggest ventilated disc brakes and includes a faster steering ratio. The Jaguar XFR is the British company’s (supposed) rival of the BMW M5 and the Mercedes E63 AMG. The quick and agile big cat wins outright. For more information, visit your nearest Jaguar dealer or go online to www.jaguar.com. october 2010

El Rincón del Arroz

The staff clearly enjoy their work

Juan Ayza Albiol (Benicarló 1968) studied cooking in the Castillón hotel school. He finished his training in a number of different restaurants and hotels in Spain and the Americas, including the Gran Casino de Cataluña and the Hotel Tres Reyes in Pamplona. Later on, he joined the Meliá hotel chain in the Caribbean, opening Spanish restaurants in the Meliá Puerto Vallarta and Meliá Cancún. He was also involved in a Spanish gastronomy fortnight in Mexico with a number of other top

30

chefs. He left Mexico, a country he loves and which has influenced his cooking to a great extent, for Puerto Rico where he worked in Ramiro’s de San Juan. When his Caribbean adventures ended, he returned to Spain and was appointed head chef in the Hotel Bahía del Duque in Costa Adeje, Tenerife, where he remained for three years until 1996 when he opened his own restaurant, El Rincón del Arroz in Los Cristianos. In 2006, he was awarded the regional cuisine prize by Tenerife daily, Diario de Avisos and every year since 2000 his restaurant has been recommended by the Michelin Guide. Juan focuses on Mediterranean cuisine, especially rice. His wife Manuela says, “so many tourists leave Spain with the wrong idea about paella”. El Rincón del Arroz has 20 different paellas on the menu, made not only with fish and seafood, but with meat or vegetables, or a mixture of the two as well. As Juan studied in Castillón, the home of paella, he prepares the most authentic versions which include vegetables and duck, lobster, chicken and rabbit, or vermicelli paella amongst others. You can even order his paellas to take away, they are extremely popular and make an alternative fast food. Apart from paellas, El Rincón del Arroz offers the finest food in the Sea and Land section of the menu. Mouthwatering dishes including Tartar of Fresh Tuna with Spring Onion, Soya and Wasabi, Tempura of Oyster, Sardine and Courgette, Fillet Steak with Foie Gras and Bouillabaisse with october 2010

grapes used to make each wine. Crater is listed as being made from 60 per cent L铆stan Negro and 40 per cent Negramoll. From Tenerife, you will also find Tierras de Frontos Classico (Abona) and several other delicious local wines. From the Ribero del Duero denomination of origin, they

even have a full-bodied five year-old cuvée, Valbuena which is made from 80 per cent Tinta Fina, 10 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and 10 per cent Merlot grapes. You will not find a dessert menu at El Rincón del Arroz, but you will always find deliciously tempting desserts and puddings. They are not listed because they change every day and are freshly made. Some wonderful examples are home-made Tiramisu, Sticky Chocolate Brownies, Apple Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream or Yoghurt Cake with Orange. For those who prefer to finish their meal with cheese (a wonderful excuse to order another bottle of wine), there is always a selection of three Spanish and two French cheeses available. Juan and Manuela’s main intention is to educate their guests regarding the Spanish style of dining, the joy of sharing meals. Rather than just ordering your own individual dishes and sticking to them, the idea is that each member of the party orders something different and that everyone helps themselves to some of everything. This way of eating not only gives everyone the opportunity to try several different dishes, but also stimulates conversation around the dinner table.

Mouthwatering food is always offered at el Rincón del Arroz

El Rincón del Arroz is ideal for business lunches or for more intimate dinners at night. There is always a great selection of wines, the desserts are a surprise, and the kitchen produces a perfect fusion of top quality products with the professionalism and expertise of owner and head chef Juan Ayza.

Hotel Villa Cortés

Flights of fancy The five star luxury Hotel Villa Cortés has been attracting the haute monde since it first opened its doors in 2002. Every year, members of high society and world renowned celebrities such as the

34

2010 special guests Alejandro Fernández and Alejandro Sanz, flock to this stunning hotel in Playa de las Américas, where the best of everything awaits them. Combining the best of traditional quality with the latest technology, the hotel excels in creature comforts and this policy is, of course, extended to their restaurants.

Five of the hotel‘s restaurants are open to non hotel guests. The Bräuhaus is an evening restaurant specialising in Bavarian in a typical bierkeller ambience. Pancho Villa offers the best in Mexican cuisine, currently being renovated but reopening soon. La Sirena, next to the hotel’s pool, offers Mediterranean food for a light lunch, the Beach Club, right next to the sea, is open from 10am to 6pm for light snacks and salads, but for

the best in gourmet food, Tiziano is the gastronome’s evening choice. As an example, during our visit the menu included scallops and giant prawns with a pumpkin and ginger creamy soup, tuna fish tartar with avocado and crayfish, hot and cold foie gras with dried fruit and nuts and a seasonal fruit confít, creamy risotto with a selection of seafood, fresh island caught fish with black potatoes and mojo sauces, the Spanish gourmet’s classic – pluma Ibérica, a crème brûlée with passion fruit and a vodka and lime sorbet. Their highly qualified team will of course make suggestions and prepare personalised menus for any kind of event.

Head chef of Tiziano is Diego Schattenhofer who was born in Argentina and is of third generation German stock. He has worked with some of the world’s best known chefs, Yoan Coll, Martín Berazategui, Juan Pablo Felipe and Francis Paniego on both sides of the Atlantic and learned a great deal from all of them. To this he has added his own twist combining new technology with the best

The Tiziano is the gourmet’s choice

in food preparation. He works hard on developing techno-emotion, the 100 per cent application of technology to the gastronomic concept, to surprise the clients with flavours and applied technology and to get the best out of everything and wake up all the senses and emotions. One day, two engineers, an astrophysicist and Diego met around a table and talked about telescopes, trips to the moon, their grandmothers’ recipes and techno-cuisine. The result was a levitating plate which has attracted purchasers like the Real Madrid Football Club (www.astrochefs. com). Used in the Tiziano to present tasty titbits, it would also be a fabulous way to give a special gift, such as a set of keys to a new car or an engagement ring. The UFO.OD plates won the technology and innovation prize earlier this year at the main food fair in Spain, 36

Madrid Fusion. New cuisine is now old hat, food technology is where it’s at and at the Hotel Villa Cortés’ Tiziano restaurant you’ll get an elevating experience in the best gourmet style.

Mouthwatering milhojas de Salmon and Bacalao (cod) with seafood sauce

Rajissimo is hard to miss, it forms the centrepiece of Plaza del Duque. It is bright yellow, a colour which conjures up a feeling of happiness, and all you have to do is ‘home in’ on the vibrant chill-out music which they play. The essence here is happiness. The staff are fast, efficient and polite, and no matter how busy they are, they never fail to smile. They sell happy food, all made fresh on the premises daily, and at the end of each day any food that is left is put in pleasant takeaway packs and given to charity – to those who need it the most, to make them happy. Work begins early in the morning when fresh pastry, loaves, buns, cakes, and the sticky and mouthwatering home-made muffins are baked. There is a selection of muffins available, with raspberry and white chocolate or caramelised milk and walnuts to mention just a couple. All these breakfast items are designed to start your day well and are accompanied by a wide selection of fresh juices. María Gonzalez, the only local member of the staff, is your barista (she has been specifically trained to prepare specialist coffees). She makes sure that your coffee is just as it should be. During the day it is burger time, and at Rajissimo they are home-made with real beef, with freshly baked buns and they are available in various flavours.

the magazine

The menu of the day takes you around the world with international items, and the list is changed on a monthly basis. Try some of the irresistible creations of the Cuban chef Yarenmi Rey. There are three courses plus a drink available all day, and this represents excellent value at only €11.95. If you are watching your figure, try one of their fresh salads including all-time favourites like Oriental Chicken or exotic salads like Cous-Cous. And meat lovers can of course have a perfectly prepared steak with chips. For dessert there is a wide variety of ice creams – no less than 48 flavours to choose from, all served with home-made cones. If you are shopping at teatime, the ultimate snack in the south would be Belgian waffles with fresh fruit and/or ice cream. All this is served by happy and smiling staff, that is the essence of Rajissimo, happy food, happy music, happy staff and happy customers. Plaza del Duque Costa Adeje 9am – 11pm

The Ports of

Tenerife Their important role in European cruising tourism has been recognised by the European Cruising Council

The Ports of Tenerife receive cruise liners all year round

october 2010


travel

I

Cruising tourism began in Tenerife in the 18th century, when the first English visitors arrived on the island by sea, some of them to pass a few months in Tenerife and then sail onwards to the British colonies. Among these colonials who used the port to take on provisions, were also the first tourists to visit the island, and they were very different from those who visit us nowadays. Since those early times, and especially in the last decade, cruising as a form of tourism has evolved incessantly. Cruising is now is one of the main activities in the tourism sector and its growth has been constant. Only five years ago, 38,000 Spanish citizens chose cruising for their holidays, but nowadays that figure has grown to more than 600,000. Despite the fact that cruising is traditionally a winter option, the Ports of Tenerife receive cruise liners practically all year round. Their location in the Atlantic and their configuration as a destination consisting of several islands not separated by a great distance, each with its own characteristics, was one of the main reasons for the launch of the brand, Cruises in the Atlantic Islands, which was officially presented in 1996, and designed to promote the ports of the Canaries and Madeira at the main tourism trade fairs. The decision made by the main English tour operators to choose the Port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife as the base for their cruises of the Atlantic and the African coast laid a milestone for the islands

The Port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife

regarding cruise traffic. The security which surrounds the port installations has been the cornerstone and the reason why the main international shipping lines continue to use our port as an independent base par excellence in the Atlantic. Of the 582,835 visitors who passed through the ports in the province of Tenerife last year, 121,524 – some 20 per cent – arrived at Santa Cruz de Tenerife. This type of traffic gives a significant boost for the island’s economy, providing an average of between 28,000 and 30,000 associated overnight stays per season as well as 192 flights – 80 for German tourists and 112 for English. The significant role played by the Canaries in the European cruising trade was revealed in the latest study published by the European Cruising Council, where the Islands are mentioned as one of the preferred destinations in the Continent, and where their role in boosting the number of cruising tourists registered 48

annually in Spain was emphasised. As well as the increase in the number of port of call stop-offs by cruisers, cruising tourism is a significant supplier of resources for the province’s economy. One aspect which the Ports Authority of Santa Cruz de Tenerife believe in, and which they continue to strengthen, amongst other things, is ecological tourism. The cruise liner only occupies space for a matter of hours, and the tourists who disembark spend more money than conventional holidaymakers. Cruising is characterised by its dynamism, with modern day offers which are not only innovative but competitive as well. This sector is in expansion, with a growth predicted in Europe of between 5.5 and 8.5 per cent up to 2011.

The near future The Ports Authority of Santa Cruz de Tenerife expects to close 2010 with a total of 377 cruise liner visits, which is an increase of two per cent, with possibly

more than 600,000 visitors on board – which would be an increase of five per cent on 2009 when we received 580,605 cruising tourists. During the next few months we are expecting the first stop-off, on Christmas Eve, by the new Disney ship, Disney Dream, at Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Previous to that, in October, we will be receiving the Queen Elizabeth II during her inaugural voyage. Once again the port will be used as a base by ships belonging to AidaCruises and Thomson, Costa Concordia and MSC Fantasia during their voyages. Finally, during November, when the work of prolonging the pier at the port of San Sebastián de La Gomera will be complete, the German ship Mein Schiff will have the honour of inaugurating the new infrastructure destined for cruise liners. For the first time, a cruiser of more than 200 metres in length which can carry 1,800 passengers will be able to dock in La Gomera. october 2010
