Playa de las Americas Holidays

Travel Agent's View

Travel Agents View there is a long promenade packed with bars and restaurants as well as numerous shops for all your beach essentials.

Located in the south of Tenerife, Playa de las Americas is the party capital of Tenerife. If your idea of a fantastic holiday is chilling on the beach by day and partying until the small hours by night then look no further, this is the place for you.

There are a multitude of fun pubs, bars, clubs and even a casino. There are 3 main areas for night-life, Veronicas, The Patch and Starco Commercial Centre. There is no end to dining choices either, whether you want an good old English breakfast, fast food, Chinese, Indian or Spanish Tapas there is something for everyone here.

The resort has a total of 8 beaches, some with golden sand, some with black sand. Sun beds and umbrellas are available for hire as well as a variety of water sports including banana boats, catamaran sailing trips, paragliding, pedalos and jet skiing. There's no need to go hungry or thirsty whilst at the beach, there is a long promenade packed with bars and restaurants as well as numerous shops for all your beach essentials.

There is plenty of day time entertainment in and around the resort, Go-Karting with karts for adults and children, 2 water parks and Tenerife Zoo is also close by. One of the best golf courses in Tenerife is also located here, but for the no so serious golfer, there is plenty of crazy golf courses too.

Playa de las Americas is situated approx 16 km from Tenerife South airport with a taxi transfer time of approx 20 minutes.

Insider's View

Tenerife Insider Playa de Las Américas is Tenerife's ultimate sun, sand and sea getaway

You can still get your 'Euro a pint' and 'all day British breakfast' places, but they're not the only thing on offer any more

For me, Playa de Las Américas is Tenerife's ultimate sun, sand and sea getaway where everything is geared to the needs of visitors.

Very little of the resort still bears the scars of the 80s and 90s when it was the clubbing epicentre of the universe where holidaymakers under the age of 25 came to drink their way to a stomach pump. The area around Veronicas and Starcos at the western end of town is still the young party hub of the resort but it's shrinking faster than the pound.

Today five star hotels, stylish bars, luxury nightclubs like Tibu and Magic Bar, award winning restaurants, fountains which dance to music and designer shops are the norm in Playa de las Américas. You can still get your 'Euro a pint' and 'all day British breakfast' places, but they're not the only thing on offer any more.

The beaches are long and golden, the sunbeds have all been trained to lie in neat rows and there's a wide, palm-lined promenade that runs the entire length of the resort. This is still Tenerife's nightlife capital but comedy, cabaret bands and tribute acts are more the norm nowadays. Most of the entertainment is in the area known as 'the patch' around the Las Américas commercial centre.

I prefer the less frenetic atmosphere around the Mare Nostrum and the Safari Centre where I can browse the designer shops wondering if that's a price tag or a serial number. And I love to pose at the Chiringuito Bar over a sunset aperitif, even if the bill does distract from the pretty colours on the horizon.

And the must-sees? The water kingdom of Siam Park lies right behind Las Américas. You won't find me on the lunacy that is known as the Tower of Power but you might catch me on the white sand Thai beach beside the ancient Thai temple, reading 'Anna and the King'.
