What’s your favourite Tenerife restaurant? – I love food, so I love all of the restaurants here in Tenerife. But I recommend Cobijo up in Arona and Agua y sal in Tajao.
What’s your favourite Tenerife beach? – I do not want to have a favourite in particular. There are so many nooks and hidden corners and small hidden beaches in the south. But I love going to Diego Hernandez and Las Vistas beach as it is great for the kids.
What would make you leave Tenerife? – Hmm.. Can not think of anything…
