Tenerife South

Costa Adeje Information Costa Adeje is approximately 3 miles north of Playa de las Americas but is considered more upmarket and less frenetic than its neighbouring resort. Developed much later, it has a low- key atmosphere and is ideal for relaxing in the sun. It boasts the sandy beach of Playa de Esmeralda, and 600 metres away, the long sandy beach of Playa del Duque, which offers a wide range of water sports. Costa Adeje has a choice of bars and restaurants including some splendid waterfront ones offering seafood and local cuisine. For more action and a wider choice of shopping, Playa de las Americas is easily reached.

Playa de la Arena Information The stunning resort of Playa de la Arena plays host to a black volcanic sand beach which is excellent for snorkelling. The marina is lined with many bars and restaurants and is where most of the resort activities and nightlife take place. Playa de la Arena provides a relaxing holiday for those that like a more peaceful resort, to the hustle and bustle of say Magalluf. Playa de la Arena is close to the large resorts of Puerto de Santiago and Los Gigantes.

Playa de las Americas Information Playa de las Americas is a modern playground with an international party atmosphere, which would suit both young couples and groups of friends alike. The dark volcanic sandy beaches, provide an excellent location for many watersports. After dark, the resort comes to life and the only place to be is Veronica's strip - which plays host to an exciting array of bars, pubs and clubs.

Los Cristianos Information Popular with families, the resort of Los Cristianos is just 3 kilometres South East of Playa de las Americas. In comparison to it's playful neighbour, this resort is sophisticated, and people-watching from one of the many pavement cafes is a favourite pastime, as is watching the yachts sail in and out of the picturesque harbour. The sheltered bay is filled with a sweep of dark sand. The marina is a fantastic place for enjoying one of the many boat trips on offer to the surrounding islands and places of interest. For those visitors who would like a more active holiday, tennis, squash, minigolf and a gymnasium are also on offer within the local area.

Puerto Santiago Information Situated on the extreme west of the southern coast, are the twin resorts of Los Gigantes and Puerto de Santiago. This area is known for its rugged interior and stunning dramatic cliffs that shelter the resort of Los Gigantes - the "giants" themselves. The whole area has a steeply sloping terrain and winding roads that snake around the resorts, and it may therefore be unsuitable for the less mobile visitors. Los Gigantes is a newer purpose built resort with a small strip of beach at Playa los Guilos and a cosmopolitan marina surrounded by outdoor restaurants and bars and smart boutiques. Puerto de Santiago, 2 kms to the south has the original fishing village but no beach of its own. In the centre of the two, is the large public Oasis lido with its seawater pool and sunbathing terraces. The ocean is exceptionally clear here and snorkelling and diving very popular. There are a number of pleasure cruises and boat trips along the coast including dolphin and whale watching expeditions. With its relaxed and laid back atmosphere, the area generally appeals to holidaymakers looking for a peaceful stay whilst enjoying the impressive scenery and surroundings. For a change of pace, there are frequent bus services into Playa de las Americas, or a 2- hour scenic drive north to Puerto de la Cruz.

Tenerife North

Puerto de la Cruz Information This mature resort in the north of the island has been successfully attracting holidaymakers since the 1950s, with its natural setting and surrounding landscape. The dark sand beaches are complemented by an excellent 8-acre lido of seawater pools, waterfalls and broad sun terraces. The old town centre is now pedestrianised, along with the main seafront promenade and dotted with shady tree lined squares. Shopping is generally good and there's even an open- air market. A more extensive shopping centre can be found in the island capital, Santa Cruz, which is 24 miles away and can be reached by regular bus service. There is a wealth of attractions in this area including the Botanical gardens, the dolphinarium at Loro Park and of course a visit to Mount Teide. The choice of restaurants is huge and there is a rich selection of evening entertainment including the famous casino with its floorshows, and a number of nightclubs. Puerto broadly appeals to most tourists, but those visitors insisting on sandy beaches and all-night clubs would possibly prefer the south of the island.
