Check out the Lido
The beach at Playa Paraiso is beautiful, yet pretty tiny, so most sun seekers head for the saltwater lido which has a waterfall, sun loungers and restaurants to keep everyone entertained. If you’d rather hang out on a bigger beach and try your hand at some water sports then head to one of the nearby beaches such as Costa Adeje.
As there is not much to do in this sleepy resort you may want to head elsewhere for a few day trips. Playas de las Americas is just down the road and has a variety of water sports available during the daytime and endless parties during the evening. A visit to Mount Tiede is a great way to soak up some of Tenerife’s countryside.
The rocky coastline of Playa Paraiso is ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving. There are a few places to rent the right equipment and a scuba diving school to keep you safe under the water. Look out for the magnificent eagle rays as they are rather impressive.
Make a Splash
Playa Paraiso is conveniently located near to the best waterparks on the island, Aqualand and Siam Park. Both waterparks provide the ideal day out for the whole family, especially the kids. So if you’re looking for a whole day full of fun activities and exciting rides then these two parks are well worth a visit.
