But back to the key attraction of Golf Del Sur. The island is a real haven for golf fanatics, with a 27-hole green and course that is back-dropped by stunning views over the ocean. Players can work on their backstroke in a scenic environment, while also enjoying the gorgeous heat of the sun on their backs.
Speaking of the heat, the island enjoys great weather pretty much all year round, with mild-winters and sun-filled summers. Those who visit during the summer months will have the perfect opportunity to get a tan and splash about in the sea, with average temperatures of over 20 degrees Celsius.
When you get tired of soaking in the sunshine on the beach, get to exploring the great outdoors by hiking up the mighty Mount Teide.

Perfect for a day-trip, Los Cristianos is one of the most popular and vibrant resorts on the island. It is host to golden beaches that are hives of activity, while the harbour offers fishing trips, pleasure cruises, diving excursions and ferries to the neighbouring island of La Gomera. The good quality restaurants, bars and cafés offer tasty meals local to the island, and internationally. The energetic atmosphere offers a nice balance to the tranquillity of Golf del Sur.
Providing a lovely volcanic background, this famous mountain provides an interesting day-out during your time in Tenerife.

Those wishing to see the stars from the top will love the tour at night, as it is sure to provide an unforgettable experience.
Playa de las Americas
The party capital of Tenerife, Playa de las Americas is a colourful and vibrant place to visit. Famous for its 24-hour festivals, this resort gets busy and heady during one of these.

If that is not exciting enough, water activities like jet-skiing, scuba diving, and windsurfing are on offer to provide an adrenaline kick. For those requiring a more peaceful activity, the 18-hole golf course in the heart of this resort promises a good day of golf.
Ah if only. While this award-winning scuba diving service provides the chance to explore the Atlantic with the guidance of PADI-Certified instructors, you probably won’t be seeing any actual mermaids. With courses suited to every ability, everyone will be able to enjoy this wonderful experience of seeing the deep blue sea and all its inhabitants.

It is easy to get sucked in and see time fly by in this complex as there is free entertainment provided every evening in both the top and bottom squares of the centre. This venue is a real treat for every individual, group, or couple.
Ever since it's first 1987 event, the 27 greens and fairways of Golf del Sur have provided a prestigious backdrop for both professional and amateur players. This Tenerife golf course, designed by Pepe Gancedo, is a unique structure with black volcanic sand in the bunkers – so watch your tee-offs! The wide fairways are lined with a wide variety of colourful plant life. For groups, Golf del Sur has a special instruction area for practice and initiation, ensuring that everyone comes away with a great golf experience.
Food in Golf del Sur focuses on pleasing its visitors. As such, you can expect to see a whole host of tourist-friendly restaurants serving home-from-home treats including chips and hearty cocktails. If you’re after something more authentic though, there are plenty of options to sample the local produce.
Of course, tapas is a Spanish staple, and it’s made it over to Tenerife in a big way. Specialities of the island, however, include papas arrugadas – small potatoes cooked salty and drizzled in piquant and spicy sauces. Locally-caught fish is generally served simply grilled, with lemon and salad. There’s a tasty local cheese made from goat’s milk, called Queso de cabra, or for something a little heartier, go for Pollo al salmorejo. Chicken is marinated with garlic, cumin, white white, paprika and fresh herbs. Delicious!
