Holidays to Playa de las Americas offer you the best nightlife on Tenerife – as well as 6 sandy beaches and duty-free shops.
Playa De Las Americas
With its sandy beaches, family-friendly attractions and vibrant nightlife, Playa de las Americas is one of those holiday destinations that has instant appeal. Book a cruise here and you can enjoy everything beautiful Tenerife has to offer.
The ultimate resort town
You’ll find Playa de las Americas on Tenerife’s southwestern coast. It sits shoulder-to-shoulder with Los Cristianos, a former fishing village turned upmarket resort town. Built with holidaymakers in mind, and designed to maximise fun and convenience, there are plenty of hotels, restaurants, shops and attractions on hand to keep you busy. The top attraction, though, has to be the assortment of excellent beaches on display.
Gorgeous golden sands
Tenerife is famous for its black sand – but here in Playa de las Americas it’s all about the gold. Several stretches of beach lie along the coast, but the most popular are Playa de Troya and Playa del Camison. You’ll find plenty of sunloungers, umbrellas and cafés at both, and the calm, shallow waters make them an excellent spot for children. Pack a bag with a good book, towels and sun lotion and enjoy a full day at either.
Fun local attractions
North of Playa del las Americas in Costa Adeje you’ll find Siam Park, a Thai-themed waterpark tailored towards family fun. In Los Cristianos, meanwhile, you can hop on a ferry to the colourful town of San Sebastian on the neighbouring island of La Gomera - the crossing only takes an hour. If you’re keen to stretch your legs, head up Chayofita Mountain – at the summit you’ll be able to snap some stunning pictures of the surrounding area.
Mount Teide National Park
A big part of Tenerife’s unique appeal is the huge volcano lying at its centre. From Playa de las Americas, Mount Teide National Park is only a 40-minute drive. Once here you can take a cable car to the chilly summit (making sure to bring a jacket), drive through the park at your own pace, or tackle the area on foot. Whatever you do, remember your camera – the volcanic scenery here is out of this world.
