Playa de San Juan is a centre for water sports

Map TenerifeThe sleepy fishing village of Playa San Juan (San Juan) on the west coast of Tenerife is popular with water sports enthusiasts, particularly those keen on snorkeling and diving. Playa San Juan belongs to the municipality of Guía de Isora.

Playa de San Juan has two beaches, one stony and the other man-made and of fine sand close to the harbour.

Playa San Juan or San Juan retains its Canarian character yet is handily placed closed to many of the main tourist centres.

There are a number of bars, fish restaurants and cafés along the sea-front "Paseo Maritimo". These are much more local and typical of the island than will be found in the bigger tourist towns.

A farmer's market takes place at Playa San Juan every Wednesday from 9am-2pm selling fresh local produce and draws visitors from far and wide.

The more developed nearby resort of Playa de La Arena has a Blue Flag beach of volcanic black sand, and offers a variety of restaurants from Thai to Italian.

Its attractions include a spa based on the principles of Thailand's famous luxurious Chiva-Som retreat. Abama also offers private villas, guest bungalows and a yachting marina.
