Time to relax
Playa de la Arena is a low key alternative to some of the lively party resorts. The other end of the spectrum to the likes of Playa de las Americas with its bustling bars and loud crowds, Playa de la Arena is ideal for a relaxing retreat.
Head to the beach
Without a doubt it’s Playa de la Arena’s beach that draws in the tourists. ‘Playa de la Arena’ translates directly as ‘sand beach’ but it’s not the typical golden sand you might expect. It’s blanketed with black sand and is known for being one of the cleanest beaches around.
