Coming to the end of our holiday, but with a late flight we still had a day to fill. It started off rather overcast, but we managed to find a spot of sunshine in Playa de las Americas to sit and watch the surfers and the waves and the wildlife.

The size of the waves indicated that snorkelling wasn’t going to be a good option on the south coast so we headed up the motorway to a spot we’d heard about. Still very windy on the beach here, but the sea itself was relatively calm. Swimming out along the rocky shoreline we were rewarded with the best visibility of the holiday and lots of different fish.

All too soon it was time for tapas and then our flight home.
