"Nice vulcano Town" Garachico by akkipaa

Garachico Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 10 photos

The town was partly destroyed by vulcano 1708

Tenerife is vulcanic and an eruption in May 1706 was a major event in the town's history. A several week long eruption poured lava into the old bay and effectively destroyed the town's livelihood. The lava is still having it's influence to town's nature.

Vulcanic routes

This photo presents how the vulcano floated to town, there were a couple of main streams on 5th and 15th May 1706.

Swimming? Now way.

A municipal swimming pool is on the beach, but it was close on the time we were there. Outside of this pool, the Atlantic swell makes swimming inadvisable, even to most brave, I didn't try.
