Playa Fanabe Holidays
Playa Fanabe holidays – Relaxing and quiet with safe seas
Fanabe is one of the northernmost areas of Playa de las Americas, less than a mile away from the hustle and bustle and a lot quieter, mainly residential with just a few hotels, bars and shops. Like all Tenerife’s resorts, Playa Fanabe holidays are all about sun, sea and sand. Most popular with families and couples, the resort is close to the amazing Aquapark Octopus, just inland of the TF1 Motorway and a huge hit with children of all ages, from four to a hundred and four. The resort’s beaches are amongst the best in Tenerife, with their lovely, golden sand imported from the Sahara and beautifully clear, safe seas. And if you like to spice up your beach holiday with a spot of adventure, the spectacular Hell’s Gorge walk delivers the lot. The beach is your first stop if you fancy jet-skiing, snorkelling, scuba diving, paragliding and parasailing, and there are numerous exciting boat trips to enjoy.
When to go
Holidays to Playa Fanabe are very popular with British holidaymakers, and as such tend to cost more during the school holidays, particularly in summer. The weather’s so gorgeous that it’s also popular with older people for winter sun breaks and it’s a great destination for a Christmas break too. Despite being so popular, it’s possible to find excellent peak season deals if you shop around. August temperatures average a seriously hot 29C and it can get a great deal hotter, so if you’re sensitive to heat it might be best to go earlier or later in the year.
