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.

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.

The sea is close and there is a nice prom which we walked on a lot.There are many cafes and restaurants. We also walked to the town of Candelaria which takes about 20 minutes,we are in our 60s.There is a shopping centre about 200 yards away with a well stocked reasonably sized supermarket. We hired a car and explored the area which we enjoyed but you could easily manage without one. There is a dedicated underground parking space and a lift up to the apartment which is on the first floor. The wifi is excellent and free. There is a flat screen tv but no English channels. Jaime brought us music and films to watch but we found we didn't need them as we had plenty to do.

Living area with lots of space, good bedrooms and a nice outdoor grill. The location is perfect for exploring the Island by car, nothing is far away, We really enjoyed our stay. Great host as well.
