What Is a Digital Nomad?
Before we start talking about working in paradise, let us clarify exactly what we mean by the term digital nomad. Generally speaking, a digital nomad is anyone with the flexibility to work remotely via access to a laptop and a high-speed internet connection. This can be anyone young or old who chooses the freedom rebellion lifestyle and travels between destinations across the globe in a nomadic nature. Typical digital nomad jobs include:
- Virtual Assistants
- Project Managers
- SEO Specialists
- Web Developers
- Social Media Marketers
- Digital Entrepreneur
- Customer Service Representative
- Business or Life Coach
Discover Where the Tenerife Digital Nomads Hang Out
The Canary Islands are an ideal destination for digital nomads thanks to their proximity to major cities such as Paris or London, their Greenwich Meantime time zone and not forgetting the eternal springlike weather. Tenerife is a hot choice for those enjoying the benefits of remote working and Amarilla Golf is home to one of the most popular coliving and coworking spots on the island. Amarilla Coliving is housed inside an impressive modern villa boasting 360º views of the neighbouring golf course and the crystalline waters of the Atlantic ocean. The project was co-founded by Marina, a half Irish half Canarian who after travelling saw a gap in Tenerife’s tourism market and made a dream a reality. Amarilla allows digital nomads to live and work together in a conscious commune where work seamlessly blends in with downtime and adventure.
Benefits of Staying in a Tenerife Coliving Community
As the life of a digital nomad can sometimes be unpredictable, Amarilla provides stability by offering the flexibility of staying as little or as long as is needed. It is not all work and no play, however. Amarilla is a huge supporter of sustainable tourism and as a result, hosts a wide variety of events for guests such as hikes, watersports, art classes and winery tours. These cultural activities allow nomads to connect with the island and invest their time in understanding why it is important to nurture and protect the surroundings. Of course, there is more to coliving life than flexible stays and fun events, the top benefits are:
- Instant access to a network of global entrepreneurs
- Golden sand beaches are just a stone’s throw away
- There is an amazing social network on your doorstep
- Spain’s highest point, El Teide Volcano is just a short drive away
- Breathtaking views of Tenerife South
- Supporting a network of sustainable tourism on the island
The Future of Sustainable Tourism in Tenerife
There are so many ways for digital nomads to give back to the local community during their stay here in Tenerife. From joining in the #MeatFreeMondayTenerife initiative to visiting #ILoveCanarias approved businesses – small actions make a big collective impact. What sets digital nomads apart from the regular tourist is their conscious mindset. They are ideal tourists for the Canary Islands as they appreciate and value their new destination as if it was their home. With the growing trend for working online, the Canary Islands tourism sector could see a dramatic shift towards more sustainable alternatives to attract these longer staying guests – watch this space!
