Southern Tenerife: you cannot miss…

Southern Tenerife is one of the must-see places in the planet. Whether you like the beach or the countryside, all your needs will be satisfied in this destination in order you to enjoy your holidays to the fullest: relax at an idyllic beach, walk and discover secret towns or immerse yourself in the nature, climbing hills and volcanoes.

The main attractions are the long sandy beaches along the coast, the natural areas of Adeje’s town as Barranco del Infierno, near Teide’s mountain, or the natural beauty of Los Gigantes’ cliff.

The list of places to visit and activities to do in the south of Tenerife is just endless, so we have selected some of the must-see places you should visit on a short holiday break. Write them down because you will surely enjoy them in summer:

El Medano.- Small fishermen town with its traditional charm and excellent touristic services. It’s really close to Reina Sofia Airport (also called South Tenerife Airport), with great family atmosphere and one of the most popular places for water sport lovers, especially windsurfers. There are many interesting places nearby, like Arenas del Mar, the natural area of Montaña Pelada, La Tejita and Montaña Roja, where you can admire impressive sunsets.

Los Abrigos.-The most popular place for golf lovers in Tenerife. There are two golf courses nearby: Amarilla Golf and Golf del Sur, both located by the Atlantic Ocean, offering those who practice golf amazing views. It’s really close to Las Chafarinas and El Guincho, where we can taste the local delicious gastronomy.

Costa del Silencio.- If we explore the coast from Los Abrigos to Los Cristianos, one of the most touristic places, we will find some popular areas like Costa del Silencio and Las Galletas. From Montaña Amarilla by the sea to inland Costa del Silencio, there are many secret coves, almost isolated and unspoiled in the coastal cliffs created due to the ocean erosion. It’s one of the most special places for your romantic or relaxing getaway to Tenerife.

Los Cristianos.- This holiday destination is sheltered by Montaña de Guaza, one of the largest natural areas in the south coast of Tenerife. A lively family area that always has high occupancy rates in the middle of summer with excellent services for travellers who want to enjoy their holidays to the fullest, great connections with the beach area of Playa de las Americas (another high occupancy destination) and endless beaches for kids.

Las Americas.- One of the best places to enjoy your holidays with a pure summery and relaxing atmosphere in Tenerife. Lively and dynamic both by night and by day. It’s a great place to stay whether you are travelling with your family, friends or couple as it is full of bars, terraces, nightclubs, gourmet places and where you can enjoy water sports.

Costa Adeje.- This holiday destination is between Las Americas and Los Gigantes cliff. It differs from the previous areas in the upper class tourists visiting Costa Adeje, who look for high quality services. For this reason, we can find many luxury hotels and resorts in this area. We must stand out some of them like the hotels of IBEROSTAR Hotels & Resorts with a wide range of accommodations, offering a hotel for every type of traveler: IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel Salome (Only Adult), IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel El Mirador or IBEROSTAR Anthelia (5-star family hotel, which has been recognized as the best All-Inclusive hotel in Spain).
