Los Gigantes Harbour, Tenerife #1

Boats in the marina harbour and cliffs of Los Gigantes on Tenerife in the Canary Islands

The story behind this image

Los Gigantes on the west coast of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, is famous for one thing only - the huge and dramatic sea cliffs that stretch northwards from the seaside town all the way to the northwestern tip of the island at Punto De Teno.

So of course, a visit to the town was high on my photographic list of 'go to' places for the week that Liz and I spent on Tenerife in early 2017.

Having driven around for a bit we finally found a parking space in a back street and proceeded on foot to the marina cum harbour for a stroll around, a visit to the loo and a cool drink.

Of course, I couldn't pass by all those lovely shining boats nicely lined up without taking a few photos as we ambled along, especially with those magnificent cliffs in the background.
