The town of Tazacorte breathes RELAX in all its veins.... Small Streets, charecteristic old townhouses all painted in bright colours, bars, shops and restaurants scattered around the place. A great place to drink a 'cortado' and escape the sun, sitting in the well shaded terrasses or under the nicely grown honeysuckle. A short stoll down to Tazacorte Puerto will take you to the beach and the marina (check out the excellent coffee at marina coffeeshop). Tapas bars and local fish restaurants are known as the finest on the Island!
And.... if you could have one pin one Europes map to point out a place that has great weather all year around, Tazacorte would be it! Almost the only place where a dip in the ocean can be had all year round (water temp never gets below 18 C!) and cold and wet weather is a curiosity (even in winter temperatures won't go below 18 C!)
It's Europe's closest place to Paradise :-)
