Beachfront and sea view are very overused descriptions in Tenerife, but at Restaurant 88Â just a glance up from your dim sum, noodles or sushi and the rugged beauty of La Caleta adds a whole new dimension to your dining experience. Don’t just take our word for it, have a look at this short video and imagine how impressed your guests will be when you take them there.
La Caleta may be one of the hidden gems of Costa Adeje but Restaurant 88 still gets the full Venture Restaurants treatment of good food, service, and ambiance and a great range of luxury oriental cuisine. La Caleta is a traditional fishing village full of charm and those in the know head here to enjoy swimming, surfing, and sunbathing on the sea smoothed rock slabs.
That warm welcoming smile from Alex is something that all the staff have in common, with a setting like La Caleta and food like Restaurant 88 you will come away smiling too.
The recent undersea eruptions just off the island of El Hierro have served as a timely reminder of the volcanic nature of the Canary Islands. The dark sand and rugged coastline particularly at La Caleta and the mountains and barrancos that make Adeje such a beautiful place to visit are further reminders of how the islands were formed and the constant seismic movements, normally too small and remote to register.
It’s perfect timing for a series of special talks to arrive in Adeje. Una Ventana Volcanica En El Atlantico (A Volcanic Window In The Atlantic) will take place at the Adeje Cultural Centre on 8, 9 and 10 November at 8.30 pm. This is not a knee jerk reaction to recent events but the latest in a year long tour of this roadshow designed to inform and educate about the nature of the islands and the procedures that are in place in case of an eruption.
The talks are free and have already been to all six other Canary Islands. The last eruption in Tenerife was in 1909 at Chinyero when despite great alarm and evacuation of villagers no deaths were recorded. One of the main volcanic monitoring stations in the world is at ITER in Granadilla and their scientists have helped to set up the touring series of talks. Despite the increased media coverage El Hierro has seen no real damage from the latest incidents, the fishing village of La Restinga has been at the forefront with the 500 inhabitants evacuated for their safety but the risk level has dropped considerably although major surveys are now underway.
It’s not easy to cross musical boundaries but Antonio Carmona does it with ease. After mixing flamenco with pop and other modern trends as a member of Ketama he went solo and brings his new tour to Nooctua in Adeje on 29 October. The concert has been brought together by promoters Xenox Produciones in partnership with Hotel Jardin Tropical.
Antonio has worked with a host of major artists like Nelly Furtado and as well as singing he is equally impressive on guitar. Nooctua is the former Tropicana nightclub in the centre of Adeje just down from the TF1 motorway.The concert starts at 9.30 pm and tickets are 20 and 35 euros from www.generaltickets.com/cajacanarias
Congratulations to Jabel Hernandez and Sirelis Corujo for being crowned Mr and Miss Tenerife in the election gala at La Laguna on 24 and 25 September. The 30 male candidates pulled in 6,000 people to Plaza del Cristo and the ladies followed up with 5,000 the night after.
All the contestants looked assured thanks to a pre contest presentation gala at Hotel Jardin Tropical in La Caleta a few nights before. The 60 candidates and a specially invited audience of 160 got a sneak preview of the best that Tenerife province (includes La Palma, El Hierro, and La Gomera) had to offer. The show was hosted by TV presenter Daniel Montesdeoca and a special menu was served created especially for the event.
There were mixed fortunes for the local entrants in the big finals, 18 year old Ikram Zovaovine from Adeje got a consolation title of Miss Simpatia , and Daniel Afonso Castillo from Tijoco made the last five of Mr Tenerife. Better luck next time when Hotel Jardin Tropical expect to host the presentation gala for the fourth straight year.
