Playa de Abama

Reviewed By Valentina V - Barcelona, Spain

Among all the Beaches of Tenerife This one is absolutely amazing for its sand and beach service. Few people, pretty reserved space, quite, clean and great spot. Water is blue and sunbed available. Bar service with quality products and drinks. It´s the 5* beach you need to relax. Perfect for couples.

Diveria Diving Center

Our new fully equipped Centre provides quality diving opportunities together with guaranteed customer satisfaction.. In our effort to ensure divers feel comfortable at all times, safety is our number one priority. We are a young highly motivated "team" aiming to provide the best service available. Personal interaction is very important to us and, together with offering a quality service, our aim is that divers arrive as customers but leave as friends! We welcome everyone to our beautiful relaxing spot away from the hustle and bustle of tourism, everyone from beginners to the most professional. Our daily guided dives around the island are always conducted in small groups. There is, however, a second option to dive from the boat in the harbor of Los Gigantes (West) or in the harbor of Las Galletas (South). The diving we offer around the island of Tenerife (a volcanic island) with its impressive rock formations and breathtaking caves and caverns is guaranteed to make every diver's heart beat faster. Here one finds aquatic life in all it's splendour on every dive - angel sharks, rays of various kinds, octopus, cuttlefish, turtles and many more. A free shuttle service is available from your hotel/accommodation to the Diving Centre and back.

Playa San Juan

Reviewed By Stephen H - Melton Mowbray, United Kingdom

Wednesdays are Market day in San Juan. Now temporally sited on the coastal walkway at the northwest end of the Town whilst the central market place is developed.
Afterwards a stroll along the seafront past the harbour to the very clean and smartly kept Beaches. Lots of bars/cafes/restaurants to choose from. Cafe Cortado Leche y Leche for me ... never had a bad one yet.
The outlook over the Beaches and harbour is perfect and for beach lovers they are safe with lifeguards in attendance ... and so so clean

Playa La Jaquita

Reviewed By NorthYorksNitpicker - North Yorks

Promenade walk from Alcala to Playa Arena. Pleasant, largely paved, Promenade walk with nice, small Beaches and natural swimming pools. As you walk towards Playa Arena the small Beaches and "rock pool" swimming pools give way to direct access to the Atlantic Ocean.
A lovely way to spend an hour walking between the two towns, add another hour to continue to Los Gigantes.
Very nice beach bar at rear of Palacio Isora hotel for a quiet drink or snack is well worth visiting.
Do the full walk and the get the bus back! (1euro 45cents from Los Gigantes to Alcala)

Calm assured treatment with great technique and pressure . Swift firm movements in a quiet and comfortable setting. The table is heated and electric to ensure comfort . The spa is well soundproofed and a peaceful sanctuary! Would recommend ! Only dislike is you pay BEFORE treatment which kind of prevents you tipping as not sure how great it's going to be? Why? No clue!

Trekking Tenerife - Tours

Reviewed By HubbysNumpty - Surrey, United Kingdom

We organised our transport through Masca Trekking. We drove to Los Gigantes and then went to their office, they have two, one by the marina and one slightly up the hill, they don't give an address on their flyer but if you find the small tourist information hut it's literally just up the road from them. They called a taxi which was with us straightaway and cost about 23 euros. We then drove up the gorgeous windy road to the village of Masca. I didn't find the drive that scary at all, maybe we had a relaxed driver and the journey took about 30mins.
Once there he dropped us at the entrance of the village, there is a restaurant directly opposite so we filled up on coffee and cake before our trek.
There were a few big groups undertaking the hike with a guide which may suit you if you want all the info etc. We didn't due to the extra cost involved and so we went by ourselves.
It's a gorgeous 8km walk, green and lush, trickles of water, we saw some butterflies, birds and one of the much detested feral cats that roam the gorge. Parts of the hike are very easy and other parts are quite precarious with some real boulder scrambling. You can't get really lost although the track does seem to split into two tracks at certain points. Cairns helpfully let you know you're on the right path as do little yellow numbered plaques every now and then.
We took plenty of photos and actually did the trek in just over 2 hours as we've done this sort of thing many times but even I tripped and fell. However, if you've not done trekking before then please allow yourself plenty of time. Wear solid walking trainers or hiking boots - as it was all downhill (you can do the trek in reverse) then I would say that you really need the ankle support.
At the end you come to a couple of people who organise the boats, one of them from the company we booked through. As it was quiet we changed our collection time by a couple of hours to get the early boat, you would need to check if this was possible at peak times.
It is possible to rock scramble to the very tiny beach and have a swim but didn't bother.
The boat that collected us was actually a tour boat for the cliffs and swim tour so the boat was packed. Once they tourists had done their swim the boat then collected us from the mooring point. The cost of collection was about 20 euros and then it's a lovely trip back to the marina along the Gigantes cliffs.
A wonderful day out and one of our favourite days on our holiday. If you trek outside a tour group then take plenty of water, a packed lunch, suntan lotion, a hat and perhaps some antisceptic cream and plasters just in case. Hubby and I are experienced hikers and even I took a small tumble, a few scratches and a bruised knee but the pride was more bruised, so make sure you wear decent walking trainers or hiking boots, we made the effort and took our hiking boots with us. We also saw a member of a tour group who had also fallen and hurt is hand so I can't reiterate enough to make sure you wear the appropriate footwear.
Once you've docked, by the marina there's a nice German café to recover in with a coffee and cake!
It's a brilliant day out and highly recommend it!

I wanted to rent a larger capacity motorbike 500cc or above in the Puerto Santiago area.
Sunloop have a brand new CB500 X. Free pick up and drop off at my hotel. Great friendly service.
The bike was a perfect choice on the twisty mountain roads.
Rode through the middle of the Island via El Tiede - Spains highest peak. Through the pine Forests in the North, and down to the coast.
Lunch stop at Garachino, then via Masca and back home. About 220km in total.
Top tip - bring a pair of gloves ( or buy some in a garage - like I did )
