Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Betancuria, Canary Islands your home away from home

The beaches are ideal for sunbathing and building sandcastles. The sea is ok to swim in but visitors need to be a little careful as the waves can get quite big. There are plenty of watersports to try on the coast such as wind surfing, sailing and fishing. There is one 18-hole golf course on the island at the popular resort of Caleta de Fuste. Another way to get about is by taking one of several boat excursions including one on a glass bottomed boat. There are just a few bars and restaurants in Betancuria, which is a fairly quiet resort away from the coast.

Great winter break

4 of 5
Large villa for extended family groups. Good size Lounge and short walk to shop. Taxi for 8 persons was €4 to town center. We visited during worst winter for forty years and therefore pool could not maintain temp so didnt use it but great size. Fortunately villa so big we spent a lot of time indoors playing games and watching movies. Bus outside on main road number 3 . €1.45 so any more than 3 cheaper for taxi.

Relaxing holiday

4 of 5
Very peaceful villa in the middle of nowhere with lovely views of the hills nearby. Well equipped, with plenty of seating/loungers so you can sit/lie in the sun and out of the wind throughout the day. Lovely clean pool, well maintained. Vincent and Cecilia were very friendly and helpful. We added the bike hire and found it useful and fun for exploring. We also had fun on the tennis court which is in good condition. Easy 20 min drive from airport, and easy to explore the whole island from this central location. We had a great time and would love to come back.
