Playa De La Arena is one of the more modern tourist locations in Tenerife, and attracts a large number of holidaymakers each year. This lovely resort is used as an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, as it offers a quiet and peaceful atmosphere that you will not want to leave behind.
With the island being in close proximity to Africa’s western coast, Tenerife enjoys a sub-tropical climate that keeps it warm all year round, making it easy to enjoy cheap Playa De La Arena holidays no matter the time of year you choose to visit. The temperatures in the summer months average around 28°C, with particularly hot days creeping past the 30°C point.
In the winter, the temperatures do not drop by much, making this a great location for a winter sun holiday. Temperatures average in the low-twenties during this time – a big difference to what we are used to here in the UK.
There are tons of pursuits to entertain visitors in Playa De La Arena, with the most popular attraction being the beach. Playa De La Arena literally translates as Sandy Beach, meaning that it is home to a natural beach with volcanic black sands. This haven is a Blue Flag attraction, meaning it is clean and has top facilities. Its shallow waters also make it a family-friendly beach – the perfect way to start your holiday.
Away from the beach, tourists often take a day trip to Mount Teide, the island’s dormant volcano. This mountain is the highest peak in Spain, at 12,198 feet, and the third-largest volcano in the world. The more active holidaymakers can enjoy a hike to the summit of Teide, or for those who’d rather relax, you can take a cable car ride that will give you some spectacular views.
