Playa de las Americas is Tenerife's largest tourist playground, a purpose-built haven for holidaymakers of all ages who come here for fun in the sun from all over the world. The resort is situated in the south of the island near the Tenerife South Airport (Reina Sofia). It has grown vastly during it's 30 years of existence and now covers three different zones, the original Playa de Las Americas,
San Eugenio, and Toviscas. There are three natural beaches in the resort area and three man-made ones, all covered with dark volcanic sand and extremely crowded during the summer season. The Las Americas beaches are linked by a long promenade
which winds along the busy waterfront, backed by dozens of high-rise hotels and holiday apartment blocks.
There are many bars, entertainment venues, shops and sports facilities, for those who enjoy the hullaballoo of a
carefree summer vacation, this resort will exceed expectations.
Playa de Las Americas has some very good restaurants, there are dozens of fast food stalls and restaurants advertising English breakfasts and Sky TV along the seafront, and there are international dishes of all variaties also offered including Indian,
Chinese, Italian and some excellent tapas and local Canary Islands cuisine.
With an abundence of nightclubs, Las Americas is a honey pot for those looking for more of a nocturnal holiday. The area known as The Patch is the best place to start the evening as most of bars are located within easy walking distance. The Patch also has
a fine choice of nightspots and most bars have a happy hour or two. There are dance bars that play a good mix of pop,
dance and 80's party music. Many of the bars also have good live music. Later on, the Veronicas strip and the Starco
ommercial Centre are the places to head to for a good party. The streets are packed with revellers until the early hours,
particularly during the busy summer months. Tramps is the largest club on the island and very popular.
There are also two casinos in the resort.
