Las Caletillas Holidays

Travel Agent's View

Travel Agents View great day out in this resort is a trip to the Teide National Park

Situated on the north coast of Tenerife, Las Caletillas offers an ideal holiday destination for those seeking a relaxing holiday in a tranquil setting.

The beach in Las Caletillas has black pebbles and is fairly quiet, the man made beach of nearby Playa de las Teresitas has golden sand and is more popular with families and water sports can also be found here.

Within the resort itself there are a few bars and restaurants, with seafood being a particular speciality. For further choice of shops, restaurants and night life the capital Santa Cruz is just a short taxi ride away.

Activities available in and around the resort include boat tours, fishing, bike rides and not forgetting walking/hiking in Mount Teide National Park.

The Reina Sofia Airport is approximately 50km away.

Tenerife Insider the resort end of Candelaria where the town's only hotels are located

It's funny how a place can change after dark and I love the way that happens in Las Caletillas. The bars and restaurants really come to life after the sun goes down

This is the resort end of Candelaria where the town's only hotels are located. It's nicely self-contained with restaurants, bars, shops and supermarkets.

There's a long, flat promenade which connects La Caletillas with Candelaria which, in the mornings, is the domain of dog walkers and joggers - well, the Tinerfeñan version of jogging which consists of wearing tracksuit bottoms and strolling along chatting.

By mid-morning many of the cafes and restaurants open, offering a mouth-watering selection of breads, cakes, pastries and ice creams. Being completely weak-willed, I'm always glad that it's quite a distance to walk to Candelaria!

There are such a brilliant selection of places to eat here that choosing is a nightmare. They do some of the best pizzas around at El Papi and at El Segoviano they travel for miles for the melt-in-the-mouth lamb and the suckling pig, not to mention their delicious meatballs (las albóndigas).

It's funny how a place can change after dark and I love the way that happens in Las Caletillas. The bars and restaurants really come to life after the sun goes down. I find them stylishly cool and they're a great place to enjoy a Belgian beer on the way out to Candelaria and a nightcap on the way home - hic.

One of the best things about Las Caletillas is that it's almost always sunny, if a bit on the breezy side. The down side for me is the lack of a decent beach and the sea here can be pretty rough, so visitors tend to stay around their hotel swimming pool.

And the must-sees? Don't miss the Basilica and the Guanche statues at Plaza de la Patrona at the far end of the promenade. Climb a few streets back from the promenade at Las Caletillas to Rambla los Menceyes to see the original, volcanic stone Guanche statues, sadly eroded from the sea air before they were replaced with the new ones in 1993.
