Safe holiday during the pandemic.
The ongoing pandemic has changed our lives forever. There is no going back to the pre-COVID times, that’s for sure.
Does it mean that we won’t be able to carry on doing what we love and what makes us happy? Are things like travelling or going for a drink with a newly met friend to be cancelled? Is going for a holiday to a foreign country safe?
Adaptation is the key to finding yourself in the so called new reality- term officially used by the Spanish government.
In Amarilla Sailing Club we are quite lucky, because what we do is a rather low risk activity. Dinghy sailing is a sport that doesn’t necessary require you to be close to other people, which makes it a perfect for the times of the pandemic!
Moreover, we have taken all the necessary steps to make your stay in Amarilla Sailing Club carefree and as safe as possible! Keep reading to find out more about COVID-19 precautions in the school, our new cancellation policy, accommodation and flights and general safety in Tenerife!

🏖SAFETY IN TENERIFE
The number of cases in Spain is impressive! Should you worry then about visiting Tenerife? Absolutely not!
Tenerife is one of the islands of the Canary Islands and the number of COVID cases here is much much lower than in mainland Spain.
If you take extra precautions during your stay, you will lower any risks.
Remember that Tenerife is not a very densely populated island. Our school is located in a small marina and most places you will visit here are small towns or villages. Try to avoid big hotels, busy touristy places like Playa de Las Americas, shopping malls and so on.
There is plenty of remote beaches, hikes and you really don’t need to put yourself at risk!
Furthermore, the locals are very much concerned about their safety! They use masks in public spaces and always keep distance! While going to the beach with the locals it rarely happens that someone comes in a near proximity others.
