Despite the vast amount of tourist resort developments along the south coast of Tenerife in the Canary Isalnds it's still possible to find the odd little seaside village that hasn't yet succumbed to the concrete.
During our week long stay on Tenerife in Janusry 2020 my wife Liz and I found just such a spot, La Caleta, just a half hour's stroll along the seaside promenade from the heavily developed Costa Adeje.
Build around a small bay formed of volcanic lava, La Caleta is a lovely collection of waterfront restaurants and low rise housing, with a quaint 'olde worlde' seaside ambiance that Liz and I really appreciated after the bustle and crowds at Costa Adeje.
The shoreline was of particular appeal to me, formed from a shelf of volcanic rock which had flowed into the sea some point, cracking into large slabs in the process.
There were hardly any tourists at La Caleta when we visited, but I managed to catch this view of a waterfornt restaurant, complete with a lone visitor exploring the foreshore.
