My tip stay longer;-) Three weeks is not enough to enjoy any of the beauty of the islands, let alone squeeze work in.
ufxwnil thanks - if i like it i might return - this time this is all i could afford
Hi everyone, i just arrived in Tenerife and itโ€™s beautiful hereheart_eyes Any recommendations for cafes to work from in Santa Cruz? Also, anyone wants to grab dinner?
I've just arrived too! I'm in La Orotava too. I'm going to Santa Cruz this friday to watch Dr Strange lol
Ah nice, i see thatโ€™s quite far from SCsee_no_evil How is it there?
So far nice, cute town. I'm in Nine coliving so there's community here
I really struggled to find a good cafe to work from in Santa Cruz. Many don't have wifi and for those that do the quality is poor. Tbh in all of Tenerife I didn't find it to be very digital nomad friendly in that sense (no cosy work spaces in cafes to work from)
i had the same experience as adrian. i once tried to go to the library qw TEA, but due to covid regulations is was quite difficult getting a table thereโ€ฆ maybe thatโ€˜s better now ๐Ÿ™
Thatโ€™s the impression i have so far, too. But iโ€™m at TEA now and itโ€™s great ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, thereโ€™s a Starbucks in a shopping mall.
I didnโ€™t find quiet cafes with fast wifi in Puerto de la Cruz either, but if you guys end up there Iโ€™d recommend ร‰bano Cafรฉ and the cafรฉ of Atypicap Capsule Hostel (they also have a really nice rooftop)

My impression of Tenerife after living there for 3 months (in Puerto de la Cruz and Santa Cruz) is that whilst it's such a picturesque island with incredible natural beauty, I wouldn't live there again just due to pretty average food, bad coffee, poor wifi and lack of English speakers. It's a pretty poor DN destination IMO
i agree mostly. however, in terms of weather the canaries are pretty much the only good winter destination within the EU ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ the only place i found worth visiting again was las palmas and only in combination with a basic spanish crash course ๐Ÿซฃes expanding your own language skills might be an effort but i think learning some spanish is actually a good thing ๐Ÿค”

The thing to understand here is that SC is not a touristic / nomad destination - itโ€™s a city where locals just live, and thatโ€™s what I personally loved about it. Thatโ€™s also why they donโ€™t exactly speak english. If you want that, go to los cristianos and โ€˜enjoyโ€™ the mini-uk thatโ€™s there.

Cafes / Cafeterias (in Tenerife and Canarias in general) here are meant to be a social place where people meet and talk and chill - they are everything except a workplace.

If you do need a place to work - there are like 10 coworking areas in SC alone, and I literally wasnโ€™t able to visit them all. By far the best one Iโ€™ve been to is _Espacio Kernel_.
Iโ€™m looking for accommodation in Santa Cruz, Tenerife for a month, any leads?

Iโ€™ll arrive Sunday or Monday 22nd or 23rd of May

Looking for something quite central with good access to restaurants. Nice well equipped place with a view if possible.

Sorry for cross posting this to #spain I didnโ€™t realise Gran Canaria had a separate channel.
so which day are you getting? I can ask some ppl I know from Santa Cruz. Also why that part precisely? curious as we have north / south
Whats the best spot in GC to stay for about 3 months? I'm thinking canteras but seems super busy specially during summer time.
What are some good spots to stay in Tenerife? North, south, etc?

North is chiller and more local - black sand beach. To stay Puerto de la Cruz o La Laguna
South is more warm and tourist - lots of normal beaches. To stay Medano, Adeje
Las Canteras is nice, recommend if you get a spot. If not just below, between Triana and downtown
lkiuneabbrohs - thank you!

Hi guys! I am planning to come to Tenerife in beginning of June together with my partner. Currently we are on Madeira and it's quite difficult to find affordable (max. 1.000/month) apartments with 2 seperate rooms for 2-3 months. We like "quiet" areas to live with walking distance to restaurants / cafรฉs and also want to work in Coworking Spaces. So I guess Tenerife North is the better place to stay? Anyone here in the channel, who is currently there? I just want to avoid ending up in the same apartment hustle as it is here on Madeira ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Thank you!!
I want to buy a motor bike on Tenerife. Recommendations for a market place, gestoria and trustworthy mechanic to check out the bike would be appreciated.
I paid ~2,000โ‚ฌ for what you are describing in downtown Santa Cruz in 2020. Was recently renovated, clean, secure, spacious, modern, etc. To pay 1,000โ‚ฌ for something similar I believe is very hard to find.
gaxkuzi thank your for your feedback. So I joined Facebook Groups and it seems that it is even possible to find an apartment for 800โ‚ฌ/month which is "nice" , maybe not very spacious. Summer month seem to be lower in price instead of winter.
We have a meetup tonight in Puerto de la cruz in Tenerife! see yโ€™all soon
Hi, I (and my partner) are thinking to go to the Canary Islands, perhaps to one coliving + corworking or coworking + AirBnB. I have to work each day, but she is still studying and is going to be on holiday, so we need any place where I can work with my laptop (between 6 to 9 hours/day) and she can have fun during the day (we donโ€™t like nights too much and also donโ€™t like alcohol each day). Any tip on where to go? Does anyone know anything about these places?
Thank for the feedback. Enjoy Tenerife!
Which of the 7 islands are you thinking about going to?
If you search this channel for โ€œco-livingโ€ you'll find a few recommendations. I believe Tenerife has a couple.
```Do you guys recommend the north or south of Tenerife? Where is everyone staying?!```
Depends what you want. North is more local, south is more touristy
You could also try coliving1907 in Gran Canaria. Iโ€™m staying in a room soon and will let you know what I thought of it. I canโ€™t post links as my account isnโ€™t old enough but a search should show it.
I enjoyed the North a lot more personally, seemed much more authentic
Thanks for the responses!!
Where would you say most of the nomads are hanging out?
Coming to work and surf ๐Ÿ™‚
If you want surfing youโ€™ll definitely want the south. Thereโ€™s not really any beaches in the north areas. I think nomads are split between north and south because some like touristy places but others prefer the more local experience
Yeah surf and tourists in the south ๐Ÿ˜„ But depending on how often you want to go, itโ€™s only like 1h drive from one end of the island to the other
El Medano is your best bet for surfing
Very small town though
Yes, there's surf in the north. Around Puerto de la Cruz, it's just colder but still possible. Nomads are spread in Tenerife, you'll find community either place - even in Santa Cruz, slowly populating.
Puerto has a base of chill nomads throwing drink / salsa meetups in the weekends.
Costa Adeje has more beach nomads throwing sunset, volleyball, dance meetups.
๐Ÿ“ธ Did you take any photos at the Tenerife meetup this week? โœ… Upload them here
๐Ÿ›ฌ wshkcbbbtquyds just arrived in ๐Ÿ Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, #canary-islands #spain
I will definitely recommend staying in the north, it's just more beautiful, greener and less touristy.
You can surf and it's good surfing in summer months when the ocean is not as rough as in the winter, the surfing spots are Playa el Socorro, playa Martiรกnez and a little further in the east Punta del Hidalgo.
The most beautiful beaches are also in the north.
There's a settled community of nomads in Puerto de la Cruz, and they organize some activities.

Any thoughts on Maspalomas in GC? I was looking to stay in las cantera but price/quality on Airbnb options seem to be lower compared to Maspalomas.
Mostly tourists there, and also sunnier weather. The nomad community is based in Las Palmas.

Be sure to join LIULP Slack too โ€ฆ
๐Ÿ›ฌ upkvrufwdqydko just arrived in ๐Ÿ Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, #canary-islands #spain
Agree with UE01HMDPT. We go to the south if itโ€™s cloudy here or to visit family and friends who are in the South for holidays.
Heading to Tenerife here in two weeks, where's the best spot to stay? Heard the sun is more prominent in the south but also more touristy compared to north. . . Will probably end up bouncing around to Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura
Any nomad in Gran Canaria planning a trip to Lisbon in the near future?
I have a pair of speakers I left behind when living in Gran Canaria that Iโ€™d like to have it with me here in Lisbon. If youโ€™re willing to bring the speakers I can help with some money towards the ticket (or any extra luggage needed).
Check a few AirBnBs and then negotiate with owner of the one you like best for a long-term off-AirBnB rate.

Tenerife 27/6-4/7
๐Ÿ„ Thinking about Tenerife around October/November to work and kitesurf with my partner, and the only spot I know is El Medano. I'm a bit worried it might be really small and touristy, but maybe it gets better around that time? I'd love a place with at least a small nomad community to hang out with, any tips?
El Mรฉdano is my favourite spot in Tenerife. Loved it. Spent 4 months there. Lots of surfers and kiters from around Europe, mostly Italian. But it's not touristy like Las Americas. Some lovely cafรฉ's and restaurants too. My fav was Lille Cafรฉ. Oct/nov is after peak season so should be less busy. To connect with nomads in the area, try the FB groups. Many go kitesurfing.
On July 14th, I have a flight from Gran canaria to brussels but I have a 3hr layover in Lisbon!
tztjkbenzmqqla i'll be in GC from June 26th to July 14th
Oh thatโ€™s great U03BR2WSTS7! Iโ€™ll send you a DM

Just arrived in Las Palmas! Near Las Canteras. What are the good coffee or cafe spots for nomads? Any bars popular among nomads? Cheers ๐Ÿป
There is a nomad meetup every Tuesday at San Remo bar kv 19:30h.
Thanks U018A4ZKS2V! I'll be there Tuesday.
Cafรฉ Regina is my preferred place to work, although Starbucks is a popular choice as well
there's a rooftop party with a decent flock of nomads atop the Bex hotel (everyone calls it Ibex? that's not what the sign says) on thursdays starting at 20:30 but it starts to get rowdy closer to 23:00
Awesome, exactly what I was looking for U01CCV6SPS6. Thanks!
El Medano is definitely less touristy than Playa de las Americas and whole Costa Adeje. I would say that itโ€™s not touristy at all. Just lots of kitesurfers. El Medano is probably the only spot to do some proper kitesurfing on Tenerife.
But small - yes.
Iโ€™d avoid Santa Cruz because even though itโ€™s big city, itโ€™s really boring. Puerto de la Cruz would be a much better choice because lots of nomads go there but itโ€™s far from kitesurfing spots
Yeah there's lots going on here, just not on nomadlist
๐Ÿ›ฌ rrcefwuqlykpbrdk just arrived in ๐Ÿ Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, #canary-islands #spain
Great to hear there's a lot going on in Las Palmas. I'll be arriving on Sunday the 26th ๐Ÿ™‚
is there any whatsapp/fb group for it? ๐Ÿ™‚
you have a few fb groups for the north. in the south check Zen Den
thanks! ๐Ÿ˜„
Anyone know when the Puerto De la cruz goat washing festival begins?
Iโ€™m in Puerto now but not sure when it starts!
Heard that Famara in Lanzarote is the best place to learn surfing, but it seems tiny and pretty pricy. Anybody got some other ideas on the Canary Islands for where to do a surf course and then spend a few weeks with nature and some more activities around?
bncngndejnuepasho Is that apartment available around mid-August? ๐Ÿ™‚
Corralejo, Fuerteventura
Just arrived in Tenerife, will be working remotely here, leaving on the 10th. Staying in La Matanza de Acentejo. Looking for new friends close to me to explore in the evenings after workโ€ฆ go for hikes or drive to the beaches, but limited to being in the north of the island. Also if anyone knows of any dinghy sailing clubs to do a bit of sailing on the weekend, i would be greatful for the tips. And generally any tips on how can a nomad spend evenings here would be really good!
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has some surf schools too but to be honest, La Cicer beach in Las Palmas is a tough place to learn. It's doable but you need to be committed. Strong rip currents and the waves close quickly. In my opinion, the Canary Islands are more awesome for learning Kitesurfing and windsurfing. For these you can try North and south Fuerteventura, or El Mรฉdano in Tenerife.
vojmnzvspdnztzl Any better options in Europe these days? Not committed to Canary Islands.
ebmnuqmladsqm Yeah. If you want to learn to surf, the best place in Europe is Peniche, Portugal.
