Make a Holiday Rental Apartment in Playa de la Arena, Tenerife Your Home Away From Home

Things to Do on Holiday to Playa de la Arena, Tenerife

The central focus of Playa de la Arena is its beach. The town has one of the most attractive coves on the island and has been awarded a Blue Flag.

Places to Visit on Holiday to Playa de la Arena, Tenerife

Garachico is a picturesque village situated to the north of Playa de la Arena, approximately 40 minutes drive away. The village was the victim of a violent lava flow from the volcanoes on the island in 1706. This created lava rock pools which are one of the main attractions of the village. Garachico is also home to the Church of Santa Ana and the former Convent of San Francisco. The church had to be rebuilt after the damage caused during the volcanic eruption. The convent is a beautiful example of Canarian architecture with stunning wooden balconies. The convent also houses a small museum. Visitors can also visit the Museo Capinteria Antiga, a little artisan museum situated at the seafront of the village.

Probably the main reason that visitors flock to Garachico is to see the Castillo de San Miguel. This 16th century structure was built to guard against invading pirates and now houses a fabulous rock and fossil collection.

A villa for a perfect family holiday

5 of 5
Myself and my family 6 of us have just returned from a wonderful week at Villa Flora. The views from the Terrace are Amazing, the outside area is spacious and clean and has it's own lovely private pool where you can swim and see the sea below. The Pool & Terrace area receives clear sunshine from around 8am each day which was fabulous. The Neighbouring Villa has a miniature dachshund which does like to say hello each morning when it's let out. It's very friendly and goes back in doors after 20 minutes as it must be too hot for it outside. Internally the villa is really well furnished and spotlessly clean. The villa has two large TV's one in the living room and one in the bedroom and lot's of videos where in the villa which we watched several films during our stay. We had the bedroom with the balcony so each morning myself and my boyfriend enjoyed an early morning cup of coffee watching the sun come up and listening to the sea below which was very special. The location of the villa just couldn't be better only 60 seconds away from the heart of the village and 2 minutes walk down to the beach and marina. Thanks to Janie and Garry who we met at the meet & greet they are very informative and told us where the best restaurants and bars are in Los Gigantes. We've booked already booked for 2018 and really really cannot wait to go again. Sun Sea & Relax, just perfect.
