Playa Paraiso, Tenerife - Things To Do & Travel Guide

The Hard Rock Hotel in Playa Paraiso, Tenerife

Playa Paraiso is a quiet and chilled place in Tenerife South, close enough to grab a taxi to the more popular resorts if you want to go for a night of fun, but far enough to enjoy a tranquil holiday in the sun. 

Playa Paraiso is nestled on Tenerife's southern coast between Callao Salvaje and the popular Costa Adeje, with the quiet little resort of La Caleta in the immediate vicinity.

What to do in Tenerife South

  • Sunlight Bahia Principe Costa Adeje
  • Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife
  • Hotel RIU Buenavista
  • Roca Nivaria Gran Hotel

Although a small resort compared to Playa de Las Americas, Costa Adeje and Los Cristianos, Playa Paraiso is home to some big and popular hotels, especially for those looking to spend most of their time enjoying the facilities the hotel has to offer.

Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife is the newest addition in the chain of large hotels in the resort and it's the place to stay in Playa Paraiso if you're also looking for some night time entertainment, as they have theme nights like the popular Children of the '80s night.

Beaches in Playa Paraiso

Although the beaches in Playa Paraiso are not the best you'll find in Tenerife, you still have easy access to 3 small beaches:

  • Playa Las Galgas - small little cove, close to the Hard Rock Hotel. It's a rocky beach, in a really unique natural landscape, between large rock walls of yellowish color. There are no facilities here and no beach bar or restaurant. The place is beautiful but be careful while swimming, as the rip currents can be strong and dangerous.
  • Playa El Pinque - another small beach with a rocky shore, right next to the Beach Club of Hard Rock Hotel.
  • Playa Las Salinas - A small and laid back beach, from where you get a gorgeous view of the sunset in Tenerife. At low tide, you can see various sea creatures under the stones like crabs or starfish.

What to do in Playa Paraiso

Besides enjoying your hotel's facilities and the bars and beaches in town, you can easily explore the surroundings on foot.

El Puertito

A small and still undeveloped beach in Tenerife, that can be reached on foot from Playa Paraiso, although the road back might prove more difficult as you'll have to climb back to Playa Paraiso. 

If you have a car it's only a few minutes away driving.

La Caleta

Another small nearby resort,  that you could reach in 15 minutes by car.

Playa Diego Hernandez

A beautiful and wild nudist beach in Tenerife, where you have to walk along the coast following the trail leaving from El Puertito.

It's a really gorgeous place and surprisingly popular, but you need to bring your own drinks and snacks, as it's completely undeveloped and you won't find any bars or restaurants there.
