Description from owner
Lovely apartment situated on a privately owned complex, overlooking, and next to the sea. One of the best beaches in Tenerife is 300 yards away. It overlooks La Gomera. The sight of the setting sun is a picture to behold. Taxi rank and bus stops a few yards away with buses to Los Gigantes, Los Cristianos and Puerto de la Cruz in the north of the island.
Nearby is a supermarket, shops and internet access as well as many restaurants of different cuisine. Inside the apartment is a book containing all recommended venues. There is a patio at ground level and a balcony for both bedrooms giving absolutely wonderful views of La Gomera.
The Canary Islands region
Tenerife is the nearest place to England that has summer type weather during the winter. It is a small Island and if you rent a car for a few days one can see everything. The area has many small coves, steep hills, dramatic valleys and stunning views ~ great for those that enjoy exploring! If approaching from the south, the first of these resorts you will encounter will be the unimaginatively named Playa de la Arena (or in English ..…… Sandy Beach!). We may joke about the name but in fact Playa de la Arena does boast, in our opinion, the finest beach in this region. Although smallish, it can confidently stand comparison with any other beach of similar size on the island. This is especially true when you consider that while many of Tenerife's popular beaches are man-made using imported sand, the beach here is natural. Its black sand is a constant reminder of the island's powerful volcanic origins. The beach is situated centrally along the main coastal thoroughfare, the Avenida Maritima, which has relatively easy (and free) parking facilities. If you get hungry or develop a thirst you will find yourself spoilt for choice by the many bars, restaurants and shops adjacent to and opposite the beach.
Oops! We have overlooked one important consideration: safety. In this respect we are happy to assure clients that Playa de la Arena beach offers a gentle gradient and often calm waters which are generally safe for children (who, of course, should never swim unsupervised, however good the sea conditions appear to be!).
The resort itself is somewhat elongated, being built up in a thin strip along the length of the Avenida Maritima (main road), which cuts through the resort. It runs more or less parallel to the sea front for a couple of miles, with the beach at its heart. Here you'll also find the beachfront promenade where you can have a stroll in the sunshine.
Many different types of cuisine nearby and attractions please see details in apartment. The apartment is a short drive away from various golf courses in Tenerife. For a relatively small resort, Playa de la Arena boasts a mind-boggling array of bars and restaurants of all shapes and sizes, although 'nightlife' in the sense of clubs and discos, while it undoubtedly exists, is on a much smaller scale than the larger resorts in the south.
There is a Tourist Information Office in Playa Arena where you will find English-speaking staff who can give you on-the-spot help and information, plus there is always a multitude of leaflets and pamphlets freely available, which will give you further facts and figures about the region. The telephone number for the office is 860348 (+34922 if phoning from abroad).
Would you like a relaxing, peaceful holiday that is near to local attractions when desired? Wish to walk along the coast in the morning, return for a snack at lunchtime, or stop off for lunch during your walk? Relax in the sun during the afternoon with a cool refreshing drink or a bottle of wine? Have a swim whenever you want ~ only yards from your front patio? In the evening see the beautiful sunsets, followed by tasty Spanish or International cuisine at the numerous first class restaurants at prices to suit all purses. Or alternatively, cater for yourself in a superbly fitted kitchen.

- Very Good
Third visit to Tenerife. This area and apartment by far the best. Everything and more you need in condo even if 5/6 were staying. Apartment and complex immaculate. Organisation and help from owner first class. This part of Tenerife prooved perfect for us with just enough to do, and comparitivly quiet.Probably would not suit party animals where Las Americas would be better. Great two weeks we will be back
