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.
Lounge at the lido
Hang out at Playa Paraiso’s palm-tree-lined saltwater lido, where you can splash around in lagoon pools and a waterfall before getting refreshments in the café.
Indulge in retail therapy
Serious shoppers should head to nearby Siam Mall, which is packed with more than 70 different shops – including high street and designer brands – as well as bars and eateries.
Spot some wildlife
Jungle Park is a fantastic zoo-meets-botanical park. Explore nature trails, rope bridges and tunnels, and then wonder at exotic animals such as lions, tigers and wild birds.
