On December 2nd another small rock fall led to the partial closing of the street leading to the beach.
The landslide, at around 3pm, was reported to the police who apparently.
Mayor Gorrín had ordered the total closure of the road.
But it seems someone in authority later relented under the pressure from residents and retailers and instead ordered a partial closure of the road.
A council spokesman said that the water channel in the cliff was on the move again and it was that which was responsible for this latest landslide, which saw small rocks falling into the street.

Cancer, a foreign medical system, and no insurance cover – how would you cope with that? At times like this Spanish charities such as the AECC (one of two groups to benefit from the Walk For Life on 13th December) are there to offer compassion and kindness.
It’s four years since the Walk For Life began raising money and awareness in Tenerife for breast cancer – last year 2,000 walkers raised 20,000 euros. This year the streets of Playa de las Americas will again become a procession of pink as it winds its way some 3.5 kms from the Mediterranean Palace to the Sal Y Tien plaza. Proceeds will be split between the Spanish charities AECC and Amate.
Men, women, young and old are all invited to join the Walk Of Life on Sunday 13 December at 10.30am for an 11am set off. There will be music, entertainment and commentary in English and Spanish as both communities come together to support the cause. All you have to do is raise some money through sponsorship, or donation, and most of all, turn up in the pink and give your support.

In a surprising new development, the Mayor of Santiago del Teide has changed his statement regarding the warning tape on the beach at Los Gigantes.
Immediately after the tragic events of Sunday November 1st, Mayor Gorrín appeared adamant, in statements made to the media that the area where the massive rock fall occurred, had been cordoned off. Now, in testimony given at the official Guardia Civil enquiry, taking place at District Court Number Three, in Arona, Mayor Gorrín has done a complete about-turn.
Under questioning, Mayor Gorrín said that he does not know for certain if there was warning tape cordoning off the area, only that he was told so by the lifeguard on duty on that fateful day
The mayor said he had also been informed of the smaller rock fall, which took place on October 2, by the local chief of police. Gorrín said he was told that the area had, at that time, been provisionally cordoned off with plastic warning tape attached to steel poles.
Mayor Gorrín also told the court that at no time did the Department of Coasts, or experts from the municipal engineering department, recommend closing the beach prior to the accident.
According to the mayor`s testimony, he was advised by the councillor responsible three days later that a more permanent warning had been put in place.
