From the wide rim of dark sand beach (remember the volcanic deposits of Mount Teide) to the bordering promenade, the area fairly buzzes with activity. There are lots of watersports on offer or naturally simply lying completely prone on a sun lounger from dawn to dusk is another tempting option!
A huge selection of shops, malls, bars, cafes and restaurants populate the town and the resort just does not seem to sleep. Vibrant, exciting and sometimes pretty wild, the nightlife options in Playa de las Americas Tenerife are legendary. If you fancy something more laid back, stroll into nearby Los Cristianos and sip a drink at a pavement cafe and just watch the world go by.
The "Veronicas" strip in Playa is where it all seems to happen when the disco lights brighten and the bars fill up with happy holidaymakers. From early evening, the promenade is a busy thoroughfare when everyone takes a ramble to see and be seen and wonder where to stop for a drink or dinner. Decisions, decisions - the selection is vast.
One thing certain here though is that it is virtually impossible to be bored. It is Tenerife's largest and liveliest resort. Playa de las Americas truly delivers and you will have a brilliant Tenerife holiday here!
