Steeped in history, San Miguel de Abona holidays give you the chance to enjoy some of Tenerife’s most charming sights. Located inland, to the south of the island, the picturesque town has been declared an Asset of Cultural Interest thanks to its historic features and natural beauty.

Known for its agriculture, San Miguel de Abona’s restaurants serve authentic dishes mostly comprised of local produce and delicacies, using a variety of home-grown fruit and vegetables.
