Places to Visit on Holiday in Arafo, Canary Islands

Even though it is a relatively small island, Tenerife has a multitude of great places to spend the day whilst on an Arafo holiday. One such place is the town of Guimar which is approximately 10 minutes to the south of Arafo. One of the biggest draws of Guimar are the Gaunche Pyramids, referred to locally as "The Black Pyramids". There are six rectangular structures made up of lava stone, shaped very much like the pyramids of Egypt. These impressive structures have no mortar and are thought to date back to the 19th century, being formed when the local population moved them to make way for agricultural land.

Lovely house and garden in tranquil setting

5 of 5
This is a great a place to stay as a family and to get away from it all! It's situated about 10 minutes up the mountain from Guimar, about 40minutes from the southern airport. Within 15 minutes you're on the TF-1 main road to Santa Cruz for some culture, Candelaria or Puertito de Guimar for nice places to eat and swim, the Anaga mountains for adventurous hikes. From Guimar you can also easily access one of the main routes into the Teide National Park. With the house being up the mountain, it is very tranquil and private. The view is of the sea and the agricultural terraces below. Our 7 year old son absolutely loved being in the garden checking out lizzards and having fun in the pool. There's a lovely patio to have breakfast on and a BBQ at night. Comfortable deck chairs and sun loungers provide great opportunity to relax during the day. The house is clean and well equipped. The beds are good. There are nearby supermarkets in Guimar and plenty of good places to eat in Puertito and Candelaria. This is a great base to explore the real Tenerife from and to enjoy a very relaxing holiday!

Perfection

5 of 5
This is a beautiful little house in a unique position. It is equipped with everything you need and the furnishings are very stylish. Waking up every morning to the sound of the sea is very special. Also, being able to walk out of the house and into the sea is something I shall never forget. Puertito de Guimar itself is very much off the tourist trail (which is a bonus) but has much charm and is ideal for exploring the island. A place to be treasured.
