The rugged volcanic coast of North Tenerife can be tough. There are only a few places for the local fishermen to secure their boats in bad weather. In the old days, they pulled the boats up on the beach. But when the tourists arrived, the beaches became more valuable as playgrounds and the fishermen had to be inventive to survive.
My husband and I have slowly started to explore the surroundings of our new home. Yesterday, we walked down to the beach of San Marcos. It is located in a small natural bay; a 35-minute walk from where we live in the center of Icod de Los Vinos. It’s also the docking site for the local fishermen and I discovered something I have never seen before.
