Together they are also part of Playa de las Americas resort and they are considered a more upmarket area compared to the south of las Americas.

Well connected and plenty of activities to pass the time

By walking on the promenade you can easily go to Playa la Pinta and Puerto Colon, admiring the scenery on the way. As far as activities go, there is something for everyone: a beach bar, room for the kids to play and plenty of opportunity for watersports enthusiasts.

Playa Torviscas Beach
Sourse: Jose Mesa


At almost 300 m long, Playa Torviscas is smaller and a bit more quiet than Fanabe Beach. You will find here all the usual amenities like sun loungers, umbrellas, restaurants close by and sometimes an inflatable playground for kids to enjoy in the water.  

The ocean here is calm, due to the breakwaters, which help in keeping the waves low and safe for kids and everyone else to enjoy.

Torviscas beach is close to many nice hotels, given its proximity to Playa Fanabe, an area well known for upscale hotels and gourmet restaurants. This is one of the top locations in Tenerife and prices are usually a bit higher than in other places.

You do get access to many good restaurants on the promenade, an actual bar with cocktails right on the beach sand and also a playground for children. Aqualand Waterpark is also situated close by and it’s a great day out, especially for families with young children.
