Garachio - Tenerife - Canary Islands Hotels

Mini guide to Garachio - Tenerife - Canary Islands


The sleepy resort town of Garrachio is situated at the west end of Tenerife's north-facing coast, at the foot of the volcanic mountain, Mount Teide. The town retains some exemplary architectural edifices, and attracts those looking for a cultural retreat, rather than the frenetic nightlife of many other towns in Tenerife.

It's a pleasure to stroll around the town, viewing the old mansions and palaces. Try not to miss the collection of sculptures from the Canaries, Andalusia, the Americas and Philippines. Down at the oceanfront promenade the mood is relaxed, affording the sightseer a pleasant place to lay back in the shade.

On a daytrip, visit the town of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where you should see the Museo de la Naturaleza y el Hombre. It boasts several Guanche mummies and skulls, countless artefacts, and a natural sciences section. Also in town, you'll find a varied collection of Canarian and Flemish art at the Museo de Bellas Artes.

Garrachio is not renowned for its beaches, although it's worth going to the edge of town to a small patch of volcanic gravel, at the rear end of the natural harbour. Here you'll also find some rock pools and a small public pool.

Undoubtedly, the nightlife in Garrachio is nothing like that of some of the other towns in Tenerife; you might say it's a little more refined. At the San Roque, it is sometimes possible to see interesting recitals; while at the main square in town there are a few decent bars and restaurants. Not surprisingly, fish is a prominent feature on the menu; cooked in the local style, the dishes have a unique taste.

There are two airports on Tenerife; you can fly there from the Spanish mainland, a host of international destinations and all the other islands except La Gomera. You can also go by ferry, hydrofoil or jetfoil from all the other islands and Cádiz in mainland Spain. If you are flying from North America, flights usually go to Madrid, where you can pick up a connecting flight.
