Located just outside the infamous resort of Playa de las Americas in Tenerife, Fanabe offers visitors a wonderfully quiet beach resort in the sun. Its recent emergence as a top holiday resort has seen the renovation of some of the larger villas in the resort, resulting in some absolutely beautiful, luxury villas coming into the rental market. Fanabe is the height of luxury, boasting some exquisite restaurants, excellent shopping and a handful of top bars, as well as a great expanse of white sandy Mediterranean beach.
Fanabe is a great beach resort for young families. Fanabe Beach is huge and sandy, and fantastically served by a promenade filled with restaurants and water sports centres. Whale watching trips and swimming with dolphins are two of the most popular excursions available from a self catering Fanabe holiday rental, but you can also hire windsurfing, diving and sailing equipment from the promenade.
The beach is stunning, backed by a steeply sided mountain range, and if you manage to venture to the top of the ridge, the views you shall be rewarded with make the effort well worth making. However, serious walkers will want to head to Mount Teide, Tenerife’s highest point for a real challenge. The inland area around Fanabe also acts as wonderful terrain for quad-biking, horse riding and mountain biking.
If you can manage to drag yourself away from the beach, the town centre has a wealth of attractions to unveil. The centre is a maze of narrow streets, filled with restaurants, pavement cafes and little shops, creating a contagious buzz around the town.
You can also get in a round of golf from a self catering Fanabe villa or apartment. Just five minutes down the road is the La Caleta Golf Club, which offers 18 testing holes of golf which is made even more difficult by the glorious views which are hard to ignore. The Caleta Water Park also provides many hours of entertainment for families.
If you are feeling too relaxed in self catering Fanabe accommodation, the high octane of Playa de las Americas is just a 15 minute walk down the beach. There is nothing you cannot do in Playa de las Americas, from the vast range of water sports on offer to the many styles of bar and nightclub. You can even walk to and from the casino from a self catering Fanabe villa, as well as play either of the two golf courses located here.
