-Beaches: Playa de las Americas has a sequence of six beaches, all boasting the facilities needed for a laid-back or action-packed day next to the Atlantic Ocean. Most of the beaches here have pale sand, in contrast to the volcanic sands found elsewhere on Tenerife. Torviscas is a classic example, with its gently shelving shoreline making it paddle-friendly, and row upon row of sunshades and sunbeds spanning its length.
-Activities: There are three golf courses in the vicinity, the closest being Golf Las Americas, an 18-hole par 72 full of interesting water hazards. Diving is also available, and Tenerife is a fine place to learn, with volcanic rock forms, shipwrecks and much more to see beneath the waves off the coast. And for an unforgettable wildlife experience embark on a whale and dolphin spotting cruise, departing from close by in Costa Adeje.
-Days out: From Playa de las Americas it’s possible to get to a host of attractions, towns and natural landscapes that will make a holiday complete. For kids Siam Park is a must, and this Thai-themed waterpark is a few minutes away in Adeje. An excursion to El Teno on the west and Añaga on the east will offer incredible views of Tenerife’s majestic volcanic landscapes, while the old towns of the north coast are well preserved, dating back 400 years.
-Nightlife: This district has a large array of nightclubs, cocktail bars, casinos and pubs, for holidaymakers who want to make merry. As well as being Tenerife’s party capital, Playa de las Americas has a first-class choice of restaurants and bars for visitors who prefer more sedate evening entertainment for their getaway. And anyone who wants to try authentic Canarian cuisine will encounter an appetising choice of fish stews, alongside smaller tapas-sized dishes like Papas Arrugadas—salty potatoes served with Mojo, a cumin and paprika sauce. If Playa de las Americas sounds a little too bustling, HomeAway offers some fabulous holiday rentals in Costa del Silencio, which is a little more relaxed.
-El Teide: Sitting at the heart of the island, this huge volcano is a symbol for the Canary Islands and gets a healthy dusting of snow in the winter. One of the essential Tenerife experiences is to catch the cable car to the station near the top. Local companies also offer excursions around the park at night, when visitors can enjoy one of the world’s greatest stargazing trips.
Tenerife has a wonderful climate thanks to its southerly latitude. Conditions here are sub-tropical as the Canary Islands are level with the Sahara Desert. Temperatures don’t differ too much from winter to summer. Get to a Playa de la Americas holiday home between November and March, and moderate warmth will be in store, with daily highs of about 21?C. Guests arriving in summer will get slightly warmer weather, and highs in the mid-20s.
Playa de las Americas apartments are in a great setting for transport links. Effortlessly close is Tenerife South Airport (TFS), at a distance of only 18 kilometres from the resort. This airport is served by a host of budget and charter airlines from the UK. The drive from the airport to Playa de las Americas will take 20 minutes at most. There’s also a bus connection—the 111 runs direct at half-hour intervals and the journey will take about 30 minutes.
