A lively purpose built resort, Playa de las Americas has plenty to do and is the perfect venue for an active beach holiday in Tenerife. There is a huge choice of watersports from water skiing to scuba diving and an aqua park. There is a vibrant nightlife scene with a huge range of places to go after dark. The islands beaches are sandy but slighty darker than normal due to Tenerife`s volcanic nature. 6 beaches on the island received a blue flag for quality.
