Holidays in
Guia De Isora

A tranquil spot in Tenerife

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.
