Today’s mobile phones are an indispensable tool for immortalizing your memories. When we go to a destination like Tenerife, in addition to the experiences we learn, there is a key point that cannot miss, your couple photos on holiday

These images will accompany you forever and must reflect the essence of your stay on the island. So, when you’re back to routine, a little scrolling through your gallery can be a pleasant surprise. From Vanilla Garden, we propose different ways to take your photos to be original and to have amazing photos in your Instagram feed.

If the selfies have any function is to allow us to take the most beautiful and romantic photos of our holiday as a couple. In order for our photos to truly reflect the moments we spend together; it is important to know some tricks:

couple-photos-on-holiday-vanilla-gardenUse the angles in your favour:

Some are more flattering than others, so it is important that you know how to use them in your favour. Your photo will be more beautiful and your face more stylized if you take the photo from above or from the side. A contrasting angle is less flattering because it will make your face look bigger.

Distance is important:

Whenever you can avoid taking photos too close, it reduces the free space around the face, called ‘air’ in photography, and produces a strange visual effect. Extend your arm or use a selfie stick to get a little more distance.

Play with position:

You don’t always need to be at your partner’s side and at the same distance from the camera. You can try some distance, for example, a few steps back, leaning over your partner’s shoulder, jumping or looking like a casual photo.

Details and nothing else:

Photography is experimentation and letting your imagination run wild. If you want a different selfie try to focus attention on the details of the face. In this way you will get a photo and fun.

During the sunset:

One of the most romantic moments to take photos with a couple during the holidays is the dusk. Due to the light it is difficult for the faces to look good, but the silhouettes will stand out. We suggest that you have your profile picture taken at the moment of kissing or just looking at each other.

Colour or black & white?

It is one of the most common doubts when we take a photo. Black and white is a great way to give our photos a vintage touch, while colour is ideal for highlighting details and bringing the image to life. Thanks to the different filters that we have in the mobile you can try the two effects in the same image so that your photo as a couple is perfect.

Spontaneous:

Forget the poses during the typical study sessions or class borders. Be yourself and enjoy the moment letting yourself go. If you manage to be spontaneous you will be able to reflect the most real image of yourself in your photo as a couple.

Different places:

If you are in a destination with a nearby beach, as is the case when you are staying in Vanilla Garden, take advantage and take a photo underwater. Another option on the beach is to write a phrase on the sand and photograph yourself and your partner with a nice romantic memory at sunset.

 

We hope we have helped you to discover how to get the best photos for your holiday in Tenerife. Vanilla Garden is an ideal hotel to visit as a couple and get the best memories together. Our entire team will be happy to help you with anything you need, we will make your holiday unforgettable! In addition, so that your holidays are complete we also propose you other activities from our blog.

Travelling to Tenerife in October

Travelling to Tenerife in October

If you’re looking to go on holiday avoiding the summer months and the crowds travelling to Tenerife in October is a really good option.

The best thing about the mild Canarian climate is the freedom it gives you to make plans during any season of the year. What plans? As many as you want, in the city, on the beach or in the mountains. It’s your choice!

From Vanilla Garden we want to offer you some of the reasons why travelling to Tenerife in October is one of the best decisions to make your holidays fantastic.

First of all, it is an ideal month to travel due to the temperatures that still exist on the island. Many travellers seek refuge from the cold that is already present in their countries of origin.

Secondly, these temperatures allow you to do a lot of outdoor activities. For example, you can practice any water sport, as well as hiking trails, visit paradisiacal beaches or watch incredible sunsets from a Beach Club or a charming viewpoint.

In the south of the island there are many beaches and natural pools to visit, such as Playa del Duque, the Alcalá natural swimming pools, Playa de los Gigantes, Playa Fañabé, who would have imagined that you could do it in the middle of October? In many of these southern beaches you can also take advantage of water activities such as snorkeling, paddle surfing, riding jet skis, scuba diving, etc. During the month of October there will be no problem to book these activities because the beaches are less crowded. Also, if you need help booking your experience, remember that you can contact our team to make your day perfect.

Trails of Tenerife

Trails of Tenerife

The hiking routes in Tenerife are the perfect alternative to spend a completely different day during your holidays. If you want to know 3 of the most magical trails you will find on the island, then we tell you here everything you need to know.

Although Tenerife is known for its beautiful beaches and tropical landscapes, the island also has other attractions that you may want to know. Enjoying a few hiking trails in Tenerife during your holiday can be a great opportunity to get to know the greener aspects of the island. Its contrast between very green and arid areas, and other mountainous areas facing extensive beaches, make enjoying the trails of Tenerife an unparalleled experience.

It is important that if you decide to do any of these walks in Tenerife wear comfortable shoes, sunscreen, plenty of water and even food. Many of the routes we are going to talk about below do not have nearby places to stock up, so you must be prepared. Some trails in Tenerife lead to the beach, it will be advisable that in addition to the things we have mentioned above, you have at hand a swimsuit. It is important that, although we do a route on foot, the climate will remain sunny, so it is vital that we continue to use sunscreen to avoid burning.

Trails of Tenerife

‘El Infierno’ Ravine

The first path we want to share with you is the route through the ‘Barranco del Infierno’.  This is one of the most visited routes in the south of Tenerife, so it is important to book your assistance. This trail is a space where only 300 people a day are allowed to enter, in order to preserve the environment in the place. Access is open every day from 08:30 to 14:30. This walk is estimated to take about three and a half hours. The route is 6.5 KM and its difficulty is low.

The Masca Ravine

This other ravine located in the southern area of Tenerife will take us approximately 3 hours walk.  It starts from the ‘Caserío de Masca’ and its descent will take us to a magical beach that can only be reached through this path or by boat. Many people choose to return to the pier of Los Gigantes by boat or kayak. This will be one of the routes for which you will have to take a bathing suit and even a towel. If you are looking for a trail in Tenerife with beautiful scenery that you can combine with other water activities, this is the route you were looking for!

Las vueltas de Taganana

This hiking route in Tenerife North is located in the Parque Rural de Anaga. This trail will be where you can best appreciate the contrast between the greenest areas of the island and end up near one of the most magical beaches you’ve ever seen. The distance of this circular path of Tenerife is 11.3 KM, which is about 3.5 hours of simple travel. The end of this path is next to the beach of Los Roques, Taganana and Benijo, 3 black volcanic sand beaches that will leave you breathless.

We hope that these 3 trails in Tenerife have encouraged you to spend a completely different day during your holidays in Tenerife. Also, if you have any questions about these routes, you can contact the Vanilla Garden team and we will be happy to help you.
