The town has a lot to offer in the way of activities and is within easy reach of other attractions on the western side of the island.

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.

Nice property in need of renovation

4 of 5
Lovely property but a bit tired and scruffy (April 2017). Cleaner needs a bit of encouragement too, spent a couple of hours cleaning when we arrived. Great complex with good pool area and restaurants near by. 20 min walk to seafront, 30 min walk back as it's up a very steep hill. Not suitable for elderly or inform on foot.

Beautiful views, lovely pool ... bring pillows!

5 of 5
NOT FOR pre-school children because of the low balustrade and sheer drops. DO pay Tara to have the pool heated … ask for this at time of booking request. PRINT maps of how to get to the villa … it is on a ONE WAY STREET, and a satnav will not bring you there. It took us 3/4 hour to find it! ~ There are unparalleled views of Los Gigantes, but the villa, though beautiful with marble floors and chandeliers, is tired. Two of the bathrooms’ toilets are if-y, but the third (the grey one) has an excellent shower and toilet. The gas fired BBcue is AMAZING! (remember to put a metal pan underneath as lit fat drips from the BBcue!) It took us two WHOLE DAYS to work out that the fourth digit from the end of the wifi code on the back of the router is a 9 and not an S, but then the wifi worked wonderfully. The kitchen utensils and crockery are eclectic, but the wine and brandy glasses are gorgeous! The electricity went off (fuse box in the downstairs hall needed the main switch flicked), but the cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine are excellent. The water went off for a couple of hours and really panicked us … but then it came back on, good as new! The one thing that we found untenable, coming from UK, was the bedding. DO bring pillows and pillow cases as there are only long bolsters for pillows. Mattress covers would be highly recommended too. Having said that, the villa itself is very clean (I was surprised that another reviewer thought not) and so are the sheets and towels. There is an excellent (daily?) rubbish pick-up if you leave bags in the hole in the wall outside the Villa. The villa is tricky to drive in and out of, but the electric gate, operated via a key fob (which we found on a table in the downstairs hall) is impressive! Will we stay again …? YES! Now we know the villa’s foibles we most definitely WOULD … but will absolutely BRING THAT BEDDING!!
