After a necessary bank visit we decided to investigate the new build at the rear of the Gran Hotel.

Islote de Fermina (a concept planned by Cesar Manrique many years ago) was officially opened this year.

It is intended as a recreational area with extensive swimming pools, cafe, a sensory experience and history of the build.

On the walk back you just have to admit Arrecife beach is pretty special

I have added photos to give you a feel of the area.

Well worth a visit if you decide to walk along the coast. If you want a treat jump into the lift in the Gran grab a coffee (or gin!)  and check out the view – its special.
