One of the largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife’s success owes much to its golden sandy beaches. Its beautiful coastline conceals a rugged interior dotted with quaint villages, tropical forest and Teide National Park.
Costa Adeje began life simply as an extension of Playa de las Americas, but in recent years has developed into a resort in its own right, with a more relaxed atmosphere. You will find a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants, a choice of beaches and a stroll along the sea-front promenade will be rewarded with some spectacular ocean views.
Los Cristianos retains much of its original charm, with an abundance of local tapas bars, cafes & shops in the streets which criss-cross through the resort centre. There are also two beaches to choose from and all the amenities you would expect from a modern holiday resort.
Playa de las Americas
Playa de las Americas is the biggest and busiest resort on Tenerife, with a seemingly endless array of entertainment options both by day and night. On the 'Golden Mile' you'll find designer shops, a superb choice of quality restaurants, swish cocktail bars and even a Hard Rock Cafe. You're also never far from a glorious sandy beach. So, whether you prefer spectacular live shows, a quiet bar, tourist shops or designer goods, Playa de las Americas has something for everyone.
Puerto de la Cruz
Although an established tourist resort, Puerto de la Cruz has managed to retain its traditional buildings, charm & character, where tourists and locals mingle in the bars & restaurants around the town square and narrow cobbled streets beyond. The newer part of town has lots of cafes & bars and a lido, with huge lagoon style swimming pools.
Puerto de Santiago
Puerto de Santiago is a small resort on the south west coast of Tenerife, around 25 minutes drive from Playa de las Americas. In recent years, the resorts of Puerto de Santiago, Las Arenas and Los Gigantes have almost merged into one, which makes for a decent sized resort overall. In Puerto de Santiago itself, there is a selection of shops, bars and restaurants in the resort and a much wider selection in the neighbouring resorts, reachable by public transport or a short taxi ride. Puerto de Santiago has a scenic sea front path along a volcanic coastline, with the main beach of Playa Arena around 2km away.
