A large haul of marijuana was intercepted shortly after it arrived by boat in the coastal town of El Médano. The haul is believed to have come from Morocco.
During searches of a number of properties in the area police uncovered 3000 euros in cash, night vision binoculars, GPS equipment and 20 mobile phones, all of which are thought to have been used in smuggling operations over the past year.

The identities of three men of different nationalities who have been detained have not been released. All three were remanded to Tenerife II prison.

Nudism ban on La Tejita beach ‘illegal’

Granadilla council plans to ban nudism on one of Tenerife’s best-known nudist spots are being challenged by Spain’s biggest Nudism Association.

There have been rumours for weeks that the corporation is about to ban naked swimming and sunbathing on the beach at La Tejita (El Médano) due to complaints from families.


However, the proposal has hit trouble after the Association queried the right of local councils to ban something for which no legal prohibition exists at national level. Ismael Rodríguez, the Association’s head, said yesterday that councils ‘have no right to decide what people should or should not wear on beaches’ and it would file a legal challenge to any by-law passed.
