Playa San Juan

Villas in Playa San Juan Resort

Playa San Juan resort is a laid-back setting centred around the beach, harbour and promenade. Offering excellent views of the cliffs and the ocean, the restaurants make appealing spots for sunset gazing, popular with locals and visitors alike. Boat trips for whale and dolphin spotting are readily available while nearby mountain towns make for lovely outings.

A market takes place every Wednesday morning. Here you’ll find fresh fruit and vegetables plus handmade artisan goods, perfect for stocking up the villa and picking up souvenirs. For everyday essentials, there are 3 large supermarkets, plenty of mini markets and for those with a sweet tooth, some highly regarded bakeries.

You’re spoiled for choice with eateries in Playa San Juan, with fresh fish and tapas often on the menu. The promenade is a particularly popular place to enjoy food and drink, especially at sunset. Nearby is the Ritz-Carlton Abama hotel where you can sample fine dining at its very best, including at their Michelin starred restaurants.

The resort’s beach has received the accolade of Blue Flag status every year since 2012. Protected by the harbour, it has pleasant calm waters and good facilities. The seafront promenade also allows for easy access to refreshments. Alternatively, try Playa Abama Beach in the grounds of the Ritz-Carlton hotel. A beautifully secluded sandy bay, it makes for a perfect afternoon outing and is accessed via a series of steps.

Little ones may enjoy a boat trip to spot some whales and dolphins. From the Playa San Juan harbour, cruises can be easily arranged. Playa de las Americas is around a 30 minute drive away where you’ll find entertainment for big kids and little kids alike. Don’t miss the incredible Siam Park waterpark, considered one of the best in all of Europe!

Guia de Isora is a pretty town up in the hillside offering authentic local cuisine and spectacular volcanic scenery. Then there's Masca, a charming mountain village with great hiking opportunities and stunning views. You could also visit the larger resort of Los Gigantes further up the coast for more restaurants, bars, a lovely marina and a black sand beach. The majestic Mount Tiede watches over the island and is a must see for everyone who visits. Take the cable car towards the summit and marvel at the spectacular views. At over 3,000 metres, this is the tallest peak in all of Spain.
