rainbow-los-gigantes-cliffsAmidst the doom and gloom of the credit crunch which is affecting tourism here in Tenerife, matters are being made even more miserable by yet another spell of rain, high winds and rough seas, it’s the worst weather the Canary Islands have seen for many years. The Los Gigantes area is generally better off than most other parts of the island claiming the highest sunshine records and very little rain.

This picture of a rainbow over Los Gigantes Cliffs was taken this morning at 9am but as I write this the sun is now shining again, although it is still very windy and the sea is a good force 4, tour boats would be crazy to venture out in these conditions.

It is predicted that worst affected areas of Tenerife will be Vilaflor and La Orotava and it is expected that the island of La Palma will be worst hit.
