Make a Holiday Rental Villa in Playa de San Juan, Tenerife Your Home Away From Home

The old fishing village of Playa de San Juan on the island of Tenerife is the ideal location for those who love their watersports. With many water-based activities close at hand, a holiday rental villa in the village is the perfect base for visitors who want to be close to the action but still have some peace and tranquillity. Playa de San Juan is an idyllic rental location for a holiday as it is situated away from the thriving tourist areas and gives visitors a real sense of traditional Canarian ways of life.

Things to Do on Holiday to Playa de San Juan, Tenerife

Watersports is the main attraction of the village of Playa de San Juan. Snorkelling, scuba diving and windsurfing are popular activities that are available in abundance here. There are also two beaches to be enjoyed; visitors can simply sunbathe or enjoy other activities including surfing, swimming or jet skiing. The first beach is natural and so is quite pebbly, with rocky formations that are great for exploring. The second beach has been man-made with sand taken from the Sahara Desert, which is perfect for sunbathing and relaxing in the warm sun.

Places to Visit on Holiday to Playa de San Juan, Tenerife

Approximately 9 kilometres north of Playa de San Juan is the Acantilados de los Gigantes (The Cliffs of the Giants), which is a wonderful place to visit whilst on holiday on Tenerife. These are massive cliff-tops that have a sheer drop of up to 800 metres into the ocean in some parts. The only (and best) way to see the cliffs is by boat, which will help you understand why the former inhabitants of the island considered them sacred. They are an awesome sight and a perfect opportunity for keen photographers or artists.

Weather in Playa de San Juan, Tenerife

Due to the fact that Playa de San Juan is located on the western side of the island, it is almost guaranteed that you will have endless days of warmth and sunshine during your holiday. Tenerife has a unique climate due to its proximity to the Sahara Desert and so it has very hot summers and very, very mild winters. Average daytime temperatures in the village during the summer reach 29°C, which is perfect for those watersports and outdoor activities. In the winter the average daytime temperature rarely falls below 15°C, making Playa de San Juan one of the best places to have accommodation for a holiday at any time of the year.

                                                                              Good apartment close to local shops and bars.

                                                                              4 of 5
                                                                              Clean and compact basic apartment with a small balcony overlooking the local bar and next door restaurant. Lots of different restaurants and shops nearby. Would recommend a visit to the Green Gecko restaurant on the corner of the street where Suzanne and Risto will give you a warm welcome and cater for any appetite. Raul's restaurant just down the main street is particularly good for fish dishes. The bus service to the bigger towns is very regular if you don't have a car. Parking is available on the nearby streets. A visit to Masca is well worth a visit, but a drive not for the faint hearted !!! Garachico and Icod ( where you can see the Dragon tree and the Blood tree) are both lovely towns too. If you want to go on a whale/dolphin watching trip then I would recommend going from Los Gigantes. Masca Express boats( near the harbour) do a 2 hour trip, including a drink and snack ( and a swim if you want) for the excellent price of only €15 each. If you don't like the hustle and bustle of the big resorts like Los Christianos or Playa de las Americas then this smaller town is ideal. Will definitely come back here again.
