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.

Excellent studio apartment in a great central location of Costa Adeje

5 of 5
We stayed here a few weeks ago, apartment is situated on the Orlando complex which is a few minutes walk to central Adeje, the complex has 3 pools and this apartment overlooks the small pool ( which we used daily ). One of the best things we found was that we didn't have to reserve sun beds all week , the complex is mainly residential so the majority were at work and school, plenty of shops and great restaurants and bars close by. I would highly recommend for couples who want a relaxing break, I wouldn't recommend if you have walking difficulties or have a disability as their are quite a few steps or a small hill to access the apartment The owner Max was great, we were met by one of his colleagues on arrival and departure and communication was perfect from when we booked. Over all an excellent stay and I would highly recommend, great value for money and we will be staying again.

Nice villa in central location

4 of 5
Great stay at this villa. It's really nicely decorated, well equipped and in a good central location. We enjoyed the warm pool and looking at the lovely views of the waves crashing down in the bay. Few minor niggles. There are no shutters or dark blinds, and that means that the bedrooms can be too light. Likewise the central location has pros and cons. It is good to be able to walk everywhere but it is rather noisy in the evenings (especially in bedrooms 2 & 3) and as another reviewer said there are only so many renditions of "Sweet Caroline"!!! Mostly a great well equipped villa as long as you're expecting the noises that come with a central location.
