We have a 'Firestick' which I have just successfully reloaded with the latest version of 'Kodi Krypton'
I have to admit that I am still learning how to get the best out of it, but have got Sky F1 up and running and all the old and new TV shows I could want, Seinfeld, Cheers, New Tricks, Only fools and Horses etc.
We get our phone line and TV from Direct telecom with catch up.
We don't need a VPN for the 'Firestick', though we do have one we use on the computer for other purposes.

Pleased to say the new Chinese shop is open though it looks shut.
Perhaps some red tape to be sorted out.
My wife said it was worth the visit.

The heliport has gone but Pancho's is still there. You are in the right area.
If any of the projects do get the go ahead I hope they make a far better job of it/them then was done in the piazza by the church in LG. EVERY TIME I pass that way I cringe at the finished job. Only my opinion of course.

Very interesting but, not wishing to sound like a pessimist, much of this was presented at a public meeting chaired by the then Mayor, Sr Gorin, about 10 years ago.  Steve McKenna was there in his Council capacity.  In addition the building of a multi-story car park in the baranca adjacent to the LG hotel was proposed, with cafes and a beach.  Also a footpath around this and in front of San Sofe complex.  All of this was going to happen within 5 years.  The fact that tenders are being sought is encouraging, but I wonder how realistic these plans are this time.

Massive 6.7 million euro investment planned for tourist zones in Santiago del Teide
Posted: 8:00, November 19, 2017 by TenerifeNews

Santiago del Teide council and Tenerife Cabildo will invest 6.7 million euros in the improvement of the tourist space.

Six projects are planned under the programmes of Improvement of the Tourist Product, Tenerife and the Sea or the Strategy and Regeneration of the Tourist Space of the MEDI-FDCAN scheme.

Cabildo president, Carlos Alonso, accompanied by the Mayor, Emilio Navarro, the Minister of Tourism, Alberto Bernabé and different members of the municipal corporation, visited the main tourist areas of Santiago del Teide to know about the sites where the main actions will be developed.

Currently, the projects of the La Hondura avenue and the Punta Negra-La Gaviota avenue are in the tender period, which, together with the improvement of the tourist zones in Playa de la Arena, will represent an important qualitative leap for the destination of Santiago del Teide.

The first of the planned works in the tourist area of Santiago del Teide is the La Hondura promenade, an action that has a budget of 1.2 million euros and is currently in the tender period. This project will allow the cons-truction of a continuous pro-menade in the area of La Hondura that will revalue the tourist enclave of Los Gigantes. This new coastal promenade will run between the current Las Bajas seafront and the Mirador del Roque and will connect both routes.

Specifically, and in those areas where the cliff allows it, cantilevered viewpoints made with metal structures will be executed, as specified in the project. Banks, bins as well as signalling and lighting elements will be placed along the entire route. Finally, the whole set will be embellished with the planting of different plant species.

Also, the planned work between Punta Negra Avenue and La Gaviota, which has an investment of more than 1,036,042 euros, is in tender. The urbanisation project includes the improvement and redefinition of a large section of the maritime avenue of Playa de La Arena and its intersection with Calle Alfonso Ferrer through a roundabout.

The improvement of the connections with Punta Negra and Ana María streets is also contemplated.

As well as improving the area, it is hoped to slowdown traffic on the main road and complete a tourist walk circuit. The works also include sidewalks, lands-caping, street furniture and lighting.

Shortly, the first phase of the Flor de Pascua street improvement project will also be put out to tender, with a budget of 1,609,752 euros. In this case, the idea is to promote the pedestrian use of public spaces and its road network to make them more attractive and revita-lise commercial activity taking into account the provision of parking, impro-ving existing equipment and the urban environment.

The project proposes the revitalisation of the existing free spaces, both in the Buganvilla square and in the Guíos beach, to generate a pedestrian path that connects them. This section will have a green space that will assume the function of a buffer against traffic.

Flor de Pascua and Poblado Marinero streets will become pedestrian streets, with a restricted traffic lane. Wide sidewalks, new street furniture and vegetation will contribute to increase the urban and environmental quality of the area.

The access to the beach of Los Guíos and the slope stabilisation in the La Vigilia ravine and the Sirena street rewards have already drafted projects.

These actions will involve an investment of 398,728 and 50,000 euros, respectively.

Finally, and still pending consensus with Costas, is the project to improve the beach of La Arena, with an estimated budget of 2.4 million euros.

This action includes the recovery of the public domain and the creation of a grand-stand that connects the beach with the promenade area.

Traffic and parking will be restricted and the beach will be provided with public services, changing rooms and a Red Cross post.

Georgie, we have been staying in Puerto del Carmen, but in the old part, right in front of the entrance to the harbour, nice and quiet, suits us.
We have been to Rubicon today, the last time we visited it was being built! it is very nice and it is somewhere where we would be happy to stay, they have managed to make a good non tacky job of it. which is more than we can say for the mass tourism that has enveloped the island, anyone who wears black socks and sandals, union jack shorts, plus a jjb sports vivid top would fit in well, a scantily clad 18 stone tattood woman would gain bonus points!  compared to los gigs it was a shock ;D
