Playa de las Americas is Tenerife’s busiest tourist playground, a purpose-built hedonistic haven for holidaymakers of all ages who come here for fun in the sun.
The resort is situated in the south of the island near the Reina Sofia Airport and has grown significantly during its 30 years of existence.
There are three natural beaches in the resort area and three man-made ones, all covered with dark volcanic sand and particulalrly crowded during the summer season. The beaches are linked by a long promenade, which follows the lively waterfront, flanked by dozens of high-rise hotels and holiday apartment blocks.
Don’t expect to soak up any Canarian culture while holidaying at Playa de las Americas, but for those who enjoy the bustle of a packaged, carefree summer holiday, this is the resort for you.
