Vacation in Arona

Holidays in Arona, Tenerife

Arona is an interesting mix of old colonial and pre-Spanish styles. The classical Canarian church and the town hall are fine examples of the area's architectural heritage.

Arona is a natural centre for sports enthusiasts, with two golf courses, eight football pitches, an Olympic size swimming pool and athletics track among the attractions on offer within the municipality.

The popular resorts of Playa de las Américas, Los Cristianos, Costa del Silencio and Las Galletas together with a large rural heartland make up the diverse and bustling municipality of Arona.

Playa de las Americas is a mecca for sun and sea worshippers all year round, with a magnificent beach and a wide range of water sports and other land-based leisure pursuits.

Los Cristianos was once a small coastal fishing village but its port has expanded rapidly in recent years, offering ferry connections to several neighbouring islands. It lays claim to the largest mural in the world, as recorded by the Guinness Book of Records, dedicated to the protection of whales.

Costa del Silencio has many peaceful corners, and is popular with the diving fraternity due to the quality of the seabed around Punta de Rasca.

Las Galletas, a small fishing village, has retained much of its traditional charm.
