Beach trips made simple
A local council in the north of Tenerife is once again helping local people and visitors to make the most of its famous beach.
Thousands flock to El Socorro in Los Realejos every summer and the authority wants to avoid unwanted traffic jams.
Councillors are urging visitors to take advantage of the special bus service or a shared taxi scheme known as “De 4 en 4”.
From now until the middle of September, the bus line 546 will be put in service from Realejo Alto to El Socorro, via San Agustín, Realejo Bajo and San Vicente.
The shared taxi service will run from the stops of Avenida de Los Remedios, Plaza de García Estrada or Las Flores in San Agustín and the area of El Puente. Provided there are four occupants, the price per person from authorised stops is 1.40 euros or 1.65 euros per person from the stop of Avenida de Remedios under Plaza Viera and Clavijo.
The Mayor of Los Realejos, Manuel Domínguez said: “We are aware that our most idyllic place in the municipality for these summer months is El Socorro beach, an area with a limited number of vehicles, so we must promote this initiative year after year in order to avoid unwanted jams.”
