For a peaceful break away from it all, La Caleta holidays may be just what the doctor ordered. Nestled on the southwest coast of Tenerife, this small, tranquil fishing village has retained much of its original charm. Spanish-style houses line the streets, alongside more contemporary hotels and apartment blocks. Many of the new buildings have been built with consideration for the local environment, with tropical gardens planted to protect the area’s visual appeal.
Renowned for its amazing seafood, the resort is also known for great weather all year round and its remarkable coastline. The rocky beaches create a striking contrast with the turquoise water, which is the ideal place for a relaxing dip. For those who want a bit more action, the buzzy Playa de las Americas is right next door. One of Tenerife’s true gems, holidays to La Caleta are perfect for everyone, from solo travellers and young couples to families.
Explore the coast
Book a boat excursion and head out to sea for the day to admire the amazing volcanic coastline, with its rock formations and hidden coves.
Take a hike
On the edge of La Caleta, you’ll find an array of secluded coves. The hikes take you on some rough hill walks, but it’s worth it once you get there.
Dine by the sea
A trip to La Caleta wouldn’t be complete without feasting on a seafood platter while the sun sets over La Gomera – a small island out to the west.
