Day 3:

If you do one thing while you’re in Tenerife, make sure it’s whale and dolphin watching.

Yesterday (Sunday), we were lucky enough to see pilot whales, turtles and dolphins on a thrilling two-hour boat trip off Los Gigantes.

Just 30 minutes from the coast we watched pods of dolphins and whales play within close proximity to the boat.

It was just magical to see them in their natural habitat – the crystal clear waters of the North Atlantic Ocean – with the towering Los Gigantes cliffs as the spectacular backdrop.

As part of the trip we stopped off in Masca Bay, a beautiful secluded cove, where we could have a swim and take in the stunning scenery.

It’s hard to believe but the small mountain hamlet of Masca is perhaps even more breathtaking on land than it is from the sea.

It’s virtually impossible for words to do justice to the view, but its combination of minute and winding roads, steep slopes, luscious landscape and incredible viewpoints, are simply out of this world.

Congratulations to Sarah Content, who won a seven-night holiday for two to Tenerife’s Playa de las Americas live on Isle of Wight Radio yesterday.

Courtesy of Tenerife Tourism Corporation and British Airways, she will be flying direct from London Gatwick to Tenerife South to stay in the Spring Hotel Bitacora with her daughter.

We will be heading home tomorrow (boo!) but see full coverage in May’s Beacon Magazine.
