The coastal areas of the Canary Islands including fire hit Tenerife and La Gomera remain unaffected by the damage.
In the latest update from the Tenerife Tourist Board on the wildfires in the centre of the island, roads that had been closed in the area have now reopened. The Tourist Board have always maintained that the fires had not affected any of the numerous holiday resorts or inhabited areas - however, locals living within the vicinity of the fires had been evacuated.
A statement said: "The fire has been cordoned off in a specific geographic area, which means that all of the island's infrastructure is working smoothly, including the holiday attractions as well as tourist and leisure facilities".
Holidaymakers to the island are strongly recommended to avoid the area of the fire so as not to hamper the firefighters working to control and put out the fire. The fires have been limited to mountainous parts of Santiago del Teide, Buenavista del Norte, Los Silos and El Tanque. For the latest updates and news on Tenerife, visit: www.blog.webtenerife.co.uk.
Good news also for La Gomera
Efforts to contain the wildfires that have hit La Gomera also in the Canaries have been helped by a change in weather conditions. As temperatures cool and the wild fire controlled, residents who had evacuated have started to return.
Although the fire has destroyed part of the Garajonay National Park, the tourist board there report that much of the park as well as its rich and unique ecosystem is safe.
The British Foreign and Commonwealth Office recommend that any tourists planning to visit the Canary Islands should check with their airline and/or tour operator as well as local news for the latest advice. For La Gomera specific news and advice, visit: www.lagomera.travel.
