Tenerife holidaymakers missing out?

According to a recent Government study into tourism on Tenerife, fewer than 2.6% of holidaymakers experience a stargazing excursion. So many people are missing out on a truly remarkable experience and the Government are committed to do more to promote stargazing. They also plan to improve the facilities in the National Park and to better regulate excursion operators, something we would certainly welcome. However, part of the attraction of stargazing in the National Park is the opportunity to go somewhere very dark and secluded where you can see the night sky at its best, so any strategy to increase visitor numbers needs to include the need to control light pollution and prevent damage to this unique environment.
