lesbian guide to Tenerife

In our experience there are many lesbians who holiday in Tenerife and many lesbians who live in Tenerife, but if it's a rocking lesbian scene that you're looking for ...on the scale of Candy Bar in Soho or Brighton in the UK, it doesn't exist here yet. Having said that, the island is very laid back in its view on gays & lesbians and the scene is very welcoming with a few British owned gay bars and restaurants among the Spanish selection.

The fact is Tenerife, is losing its 'too embarassing to tell anyone I'm going' label and is becoming the choice of many women who like to be active or simply relax and do nothing on holiday.

So here's a small selection of what Tenerife has to offer, to suit most tastes, but if you have special requirements, we are on hand to give you advice, just ask. We'll do all we can to make sure you have a great time here.

Cultural experience
  la oratava roof
Contrary to what the press would have you believe, Tenerife is full of culture and tradition. It has many renowned international music festivals, international award winning wines & plenty of unique architecture. It's worth exploring...we have and can guide you too!
If sitting on the beach 12 hours a day, everyday of your holiday bores you....there are loads of activities to excite you. We only recommend activities run by passionate people, i.e people that really know and love what they do. We even have a gay tennis coach
  Sea Kayaking  
in one of Tenerife's best kept secrets, the 'Isla Baja' region in the west - with great instructors, wonderful views and a one off experience.

at pinkcanaries, if we feel like exercise, we usually lie down until the feeling passes, but we do like to watch the ladies professional & non professional beach volleyball throughout the Summer ;)
