Visit Playa de las Americas, Spain

Playa de las Americas is the biggest resort on the island of Tenerife. It is on the south of the island within easy reach of Tenerife's Aqua Parks, Whale-watching trips and the superb sheer cliffs of Los Gigantes.

Millions of tons of imported sand mean that the beaches of Playa de las Americas have lovely golden sand and there are loads of pubs, cafes and restaurants to suit all different holiday budjets.

As well as being a large resort with lots of facilities and lots of water sports on offer, Playa de las Americas is well-known for its nightlife.

Whilst it once had a rowdy reputation Playa de las Americas has spent a lot of money to clean up its act and encourage clubbers but not trouble-makers.

The main areas to head for at night are the Veronicas strip, the Patch and the Starco Commercial Centre.
