Great Things to Do

Although Playa de la Arena is one of the quieter resorts on the island, there are still plenty of things to do to keep you entertained during your stay.

Take to Water

The sheltered beach has a relatively strong current which is ideal for a variety of water sports, especially windsurfing. If you aren’t a pro and want to give it a go then there are a couple of friendly instructors on hand to give you a few tips. Scuba diving is also popular in Playa de la Arena as the marine life is beautiful.

Enjoy the Local Nightlife

The party scene here may not be as lively as some of the other resorts on the island, but there are plenty of pubs and bars to keep you entertained in the evenings. You will find welcoming establishments serving cheap alcohol and providing live entertainment and be sure not to miss the local banana liqueur.

Go Whale Watching

There are plenty of boat trips leaving from nearby Los Gigantes which will whisk you out to sea in a glass bottom boat and show you whales and dolphins splashing about in the ocean. The dolphins are especially fantastic as they love to show off for tourist boats, so expect lots of photo opportunities.

Explore the Island by Foot

There are great opportunities for hiking all over the island, and Playa de la Arena is one of the most popular resorts with walkers. You can walk along the dramatic cliffs of Los Gigantes, which is just along the shore, or head off to Teide National Parks which is known for its stunning volcanic scenery.

Getting Around

Tenerife is easy to navigate with a range of transport readily available. The public buses are a cheap way for visitors to explore the island, most holiday makers tend to use taxis and hire cars as it offers that extra flexibility during your stay. The islands are full of cycling and hiking trails for the more adventurous and there are daily boat services hopping between each island.

By Bus

There are comfortable, air conditioned buses which leave from most of the main resorts regularly and stop at the island’s most famous attractions. The smaller, local buses are slightly less reliable.

By Car

Hiring a car is cheap, easy and highly recommended. The island’s main roads are easy to navigate and well looked after; the smaller roads can be somewhat of a challenge. Driving is on the left.
