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

Holidaymakers looking for an island getaway in the sun but away from hoards of other tourists may like to try Betancuria.

Here visitors will find numerous different places to stay including self catering accommodation, villas and apartments.

Things to do on holiday to Betancuria, Canary Islands

The nearest beach to Betancuria is the fishing village of Ajuy or a little further away on the east coast is Caleta de Fuste, which is about a 35 minute drive away. 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. Self catering holidaymakers will be able to purchase food and drink from the local stores and markets. There are also a handful of shops selling gifts and souvenirs.
