The 500 Hidden Secrets of Tenerife
Conny Melkebeek works as an official tourist guide in Tenerife; she has been living on the island for over 25 years.
This guidebook is her personal ode to the spot she fell in love with so many years ago and that has never stopped fascinating her. It takes you off the beaten track to more than 390 beautiful and unexpected locations. The aim of this book is to reveal lesser-known places that will awaken your senses or take your breath away, places that tell an interesting story and that will persuade you to linger. It covers different areas on the island (Santa Cruz, the North, Mount Teide, the South) and an eclectic range of themes, such as:
- restaurants in breathtaking locations
- monumental sculptures
- wonderful natural pools
- lively bars to go local
- hikes leading away from it all
- rural and cosy hideaways.
These wonderful locations were photographed by Sergio Villalba. He’s a true ‘Canario’ who migrated and then returned to his roots; as such he has the knowledge and the perspective of an insider as well as the fresh eye of a traveller.
