Isla de Tenerife What to Pack: 14 reviews and 7 photos

  In sun + shade both: SUNSCREEN!!!
by morgane1692

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: That was the primary thought which was running through my mind on the flight back from Tenerife to mainland Europe, as it became more and more apparent that my sunburn was a baaaad one. What a dope. I sat in the shade of the umbrella by the hotel pool for a few hours, but had neglected to use...SUNSCREEN!!! I was in misery for a few days because of this oversight. Don't you make the same idiot mistake. Bring your own SUNSCREEN. Bring it from home too, because it's three times as expensive in Europe, on the mainland as well as the island here. Use this sunscreen each and every time you are anywhere outdoors. If you think you might be needing Dramamine etc for the ferry ride over to La Gomera, bring your own. It is available here and it's not expensive at all, less then 4euros for a 12pill pack, but you can only get this and any other over-the-counter medicine at pharmacies. Tracking down a 24hr pharmacy at 10p is something you want to avoid, if you can help it.

Photo Equipment: Naturally, make sure you have more than enough batteries and memory cards on hand. Save your euros to spend on the fun things, not the staples.
