Isle of Tenerife

Just another Tenerife sunset in La Paz

Tenerife Sunset La Paz

Sunsets over Tenerife can be pretty spectacular, as this shot taken from the mirador at La Paz, Puerto de la Cruz, clearly demonstrates.

The scientific explanation for the vivid colours we see as the sun goes down revolves around the low angle scattering of light off fine particles of dust, soot, smoke and ash.

One of the reasons sunsets over Tenerife can be so special is the island’s relative proximity to the Sahara Desert.

For most of us, their sheer beauty is intoxicating enough not to require further explanation.
