    With an average of 320 sunshine days a year, holidays to Playa de la Arena, a sleepy town in the west of beautiful Tenerife, are a safe bet whether you fancy a summer holiday or splash of winter sun. Relax on one of the resort's trademark black sandy beaches backed by rugged cliffs, one of the beautiful characteristics of Tenerife.

    This laid-back resort is popular with families, couples and friends who want a quiet retreat on the west coast of Tenerife, with a choice of watersports on the beach, traditional villages and nearby swanky resorts such as Santa Cruz de Tenerife – a vibrant capital complete with a famous harbour, iconic landmarks and (most importantly) a fantastic shopping scene in Plaza de Espana.

    The surrounding mountains and volcanic landscapes not only provide an idyllic backdrop but are a treasure trove for avid cyclists and adventure lovers – book a buggy safari, horse riding, paragliding and more on Playa de la Arena holidays. If you're a foodie, you're in for a treat with Tenerife's food and drink scene with an abundance of fresh seafood available at waterfront restaurants – and a particularly tasty menu at Café Jardin, all accompanied by the best local wines. The nightlife is easy-going in comparison to the lively bars you might find in neighbouring Playa de las Americas or Los Gigantes, but there is a good selection of bars along the promenade.

    Tenerife South Airport is 30-minutes from the resort and taxis usually charge around €55 to €60 for a one-way trip for two people, so you could be touching down on your Playa de la Arena holidays in no time.

    Playa de la Arena Beach

    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.

    Visit Bar Pizzeria El Gourmet

    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'll find welcoming establishments serving cheap cocktails and providing live entertainment and you can also explore neighbouring resorts with ease. Be sure not to miss the local banana liqueur!

     
    Whale Watching in Los Gigantes

     

    Whale Watching in Los Gigantes

    There are plenty of boat trips leaving from nearby Los Gigantes, which will whisk you out to sea on a whale or dolphin spotting day. The dolphins are especially fantastic as they love to show off for tourist boats, so expect lots of photo opportunities!

     
    Hike up to Teide Mountain

     

     

    Hike up to Teide Mountain

    Magnificent Mount Teide is a volcanic peak that looms 12,230 feet high over the centre of Tenerife. There are great hiking and cycling excursions here, but don't worry, many are set up for complete novices! Pretty villages are nestled along the mountain trails and you can take the cable car up to the base of the peak. Once there, the views of Canary archipelago surrounding Tenerife are just awesome!
