I think it is steeper than Cardiac hill. We often do both when we go home from LG centre.

Even if the Canaries are on the UK's green list you still can't go while the while the ban on non-EU nationals is in force. Currently that is to the end of May but they keep renewing it.

Tanemera, yes maybe a fold up bike would be better and less dangerous! Nophead interesting that you saw a scooter going up to Mercadona, because the start of that road must be as steep as heart attack hill. Also with a bike you can have a pannier and carry things. Cheers for your answers! Saying today in papers Canaries to be on green list from 17th May, we have flights booked middle of June which is also 3 weeks after our second vaccine shot. So am quite confident we will be arriving, can't wait!!

Staying self-catering so want plenty of restaurants/bars, but don't want very busy resort-like playa de las Americas. What is Los Gigantes like?

Also looking at El Sombrero aprts. Did anyone stay here recently?

Sorry folks looks like I had a senior moment, it is not AA but V V. which stands for Vivienda Vacacional, these licences can be applied for by any property owner, but there are restrictions.

Don't know about LG but there are some in PS & PA & anybody can apply in fact there is one very large Villa opposite the Landmar Hotel that has turned the villa into a party villa, I would think the villa owners each side are not to happy, that's why I said if you can rent firstly, that would be a good idea.

An e-Bike with a 36 volt battery would get you from the Royal Sun to the harbour and back at least 3 times on a charge, provided you put a minimal amount of effort in on the way back on the steepest bits.

I did once see a scooter going up the Mercadona road but I can't imagine the battery charge lasting long doing that.

We prefer the exercise and use the stairs up the side of Harbour Club 2 when going from the centre of LG up to the Royal Sun. Lost some weight doing that and now my clothes don't fit!

I would try renting one first. If you live high up in Los Gigantes I donít think an electric scooter or even an Ebike will be powerful enough to get you back up the hill.

Further to all the advice & comments already voiced, I know that complexes can be Tourist or Residential but don't forget even in a Residential complex an owner can apply for a AA licence to rent.

One suggestion, if I was going to purchase another property to stay 6 months of the year in, I would request to the owner if we areee a purchase price that I rent the property first for an agreed period, you can then check if it is suitable or not, or any problems that may arise.

The owner or agent might not like this idea, but you are the person with the cash.

With regard to insurance on e-bikes and e-scooters in the UK, you need to check your household insurance to check that you are covered for 3rd party claims and also, less importantly, theft from home or away.  Same would presumably apply in Tenerife.

Outside of specific trial areas, the only place an e-scooter can be used legally is on private land. This would need to be with consent of the land owner, and not somewhere open to the public.
You cannot ride one on the pavement or on the road!
This is the uk, of course the police completely ignore scooters and cycles on the pavement (illegally) it is far easier to nail motorists. :)
