ENGLISH LANGUAGE NEWSPAPERS

English language newspapers are usually free and distributed to bars and shops for anyone to pick up.

These days, there are three main ones.


Tenerife News

This is the equivalent of something like the Times in Britain. Published fortnightly, containing informative news and insightful commentaries. Tenerife's premier serious newspaper.

Island Connections

Also published fortnightly, full of local and national news. Both visitors and residents are catered for, with featured articles, interviews, events and sport.

Canarian Weekly

All the latest Canarian news, plus classifieds, weather and job vacancies. The only English language newspaper in Tenerife published weekly.


OTHER ENGLISH LANGUAGE PUBLICATIONS

The Canary News

Tenerife Magazine



The Paper

Once one of the most popular free newspapers in Tenerife, this periodical ceased production in September, 2010. It was a familiar sight in bars and other establishments for about 12 years and, no doubt, will be missed by many holidaymakers and residents.
