Guia de Isora holidays are perfect for those looking to experience a slice of traditional Canarian life. On the southwest coast of Tenerife, a little inland, this charming spot has a retro charm, with less modern development than other parts of the island. With food markets and quaint local shops to explore, as well as lots of bars and restaurants, it’s a great option for the whole family.
As Tenerife is a volcanic island, you’ll find unusual landscapes and inspiring scenery everywhere you look. There are mountainous areas nearby, as well as a couple of lovely beaches with wonderful views out to the Atlantic. Playa San Juan, with its cute harbour and chilled-out promenade, is a popular choice. Just before sundown, you can settle in with a cold drink at one of the cafés and watch the sun set over La Gomera – a smaller island that sits off the coast. However you spend your time on holidays to Guia de Isora, it’s sure to be unforgettable.
Step back in time
Admire the traditional Canarian buildings in Guia de Isora’s historic quarter. Some landmarks, such as the pretty church of Nuestra Señora de la Luz, have been there since the 16th century.
Take a hike
Lovers of the outdoors should take a trip to the nearby Tágara ravine, where you can stroll through picturesque pine forests and discover glorious natural springs along the way.
See the Montaña de Tejina
You don’t have to be a geologist to be impressed by this 1,055-metre volcanic mound – a natural wonder created by the slow rise of lava from under the ground.
