Visit Playa de las Americas

Playa de las Americas is a resort on south coast of of Tenerife not far from Los Cristianos.

Playa de las Americas is Tenerife's biggest resort and definitely the place to come if you are looking for a lively nightlife. It did have a poor reputation due to fights and drunks but Playa de las Americas has increased its police presence and spent money on upgrading the resort and it is now much improved.

Playa de las Americas has lots of clubs and so you can party all night long. It also has lots of pubs, restaurants and fast-food restaurants. If you are looking for the real Tenerife this is not the resort to choose.

If you are looking for a fun party atmosphere with lots of young people then this is the one to choose.

The Veronicas strip, the Patch and the Starco Commercial Centre are good places to start when looking for nightlife and for shopping head for Las Americas Avenue.

The beaches are artificial and so have yellow sand and look nicer than the black beaches that are the natural ones on Tenerife.
