Holidays in
Playa Paraiso

Seaside paradise in Tenerife

Playa Paraiso is a small but perfectly formed jewel of a seaside town on Tenerife’s southwest coast. And while it’s a quiet and peaceful place, it’s also brilliantly close to all the action, as Tenerife’s best-known resorts – the bright lights of Playa de las Americas, the authentic port town of Los Cristianos and the sandy beaches of Adeje – are all just minutes away.

Playa Paraiso holidays are guaranteed to leave the whole family feeling refreshed, from lazing on the horseshoe-shaped golden sandy beach to splashing about in the protected bay of turquoise water. Another excellent chill-out spot is the resort’s famed seawater lido, which sits inland and guarantees safe swimming all year round. Evenings can be spent over long and laid-back suppers of Canarian-style ‘pinchos’ accompanied by glasses of local wine at one of the many low-key restaurants and bars. Holidays to Playa Paraiso guarantee family fun at a relaxed pace.

Your Playa Paraiso questions, answered

Yep, Playa Paraiso is a bit of a snorkelling hotspot with masses of sea life to discover under the water. If you fancy going deeper, there are scuba diving schools, too.

There’s a small shopping centre in the resort where you can buy holiday essentials and souvenirs. For upscale purchases, head to neighbouring Adeje’s Plaza del Duque mall.

Absolutely. Playa Paraiso is much quieter than other more nightlife-focused resorts such as Playa de las Americas. Families and couples looking to relax in a laid-back environment will fit right in.
