West of the autopista near la playa de Socorro, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, España.
This hashpoint was 3000 km from home. I walked about 1 km from my holiday accommodation to the Estacion de Guaguas (Bus Station) and caught the 10:30 guagua to Costa Adeje. A change of guagua was needed. I took the 111 to Santa Cruz via the south airport. I got off at Arafo (Bus Stop 7120) and started the short walk. On Google Earth, the hashpoint looked as though it was half way up a steep slope. In real life this turned out to be a low vertical cliff. Luckily the hashpoint was at the bottom and easily reached. It was in the middle of a euphorbia bush. The circular route back to the bus stop totalled about 3.5km. The return bus journey was similar with the change of bus in Los Christianos because that is a nicer place to wait. Very little time was lost waiting for the buses.
The sky was very hazy due to fine dust blowing in from the Sahara desert. The locals call this weather Kalima. In the summer this weather is very hot and windy. In January it's warm but not too pleasant due to the dust.
