We were self catering so ate out quite a lot. Breakfast I would recommend the Chieftain Sports Bar just over the road, near the supermarket It also does nice meals with, again, a specials deal. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and most at reasonable prices. The local supermarket we used was just across the road from the apartments. All food was fresh including meat and vegetables and a good variety of stock. They made rolls etc fresh daily if you wanted them for the beach of a day out. The beach was a 10 minute walk away. Most along this resort were large stones but there was two small beaches which were black sand but that is because Tenerife is volcanic, so that is the natural colour. <br /> <br /> There are plenty of shops in resort from the tourist to the normal shopping centre. There is plenty to do in the area, local busses are frequent and cheap. Use these if you have the confidence to do it yourself sightseeing as they are far cheaper than booking through the agencies. There is a resort train and there are free busses for Siam Water Park, Aqua Land and Loro Parque. Markets are held daily in all resorts in the area worth a visit. Make sure you haggle but always keep your money etc close to you as there are, as any holiday resorts, pickpockets and quite a few of them. Always wear, wherever you are walking, your bag across your front not on your back. This should not put you off going to Tenerife as 99.9% of the island residents are lovely, caring and helpful people who always seem to be smiling. Mind you, with all that sunshine I think I would be smiling too.<br /> <br /> One thing I will recommend is dolphin and whale watching with a company called Skyline. When in Tenerife contact them, they will pick you up from your accommodation, take you to the boat and return you to your accommodation. The boat trip lasts for 3 hours. They hve a yacht and motor cruiser you choose, all very safe. You do get fed while on the trip and have unlimited soft drinks and beers. If you only do this once it is well worth it.

Beaches

Playa las Vistas is set back in a curved bay with wide golden sands. The waters are calm and protected by two large breakwaters which almost encircle the entire beach. This is a spacious beach with loungers and shades for hire and plenty going on, with volleyball courts on the sand and terrace bars and restaurants right behind you.

Continuing around the bay is the exclusive chill-out beach complete with cabanas, belonging to the Mexican themed Europe Villa Cortes Hotel followed by a long, narrow stretch of sand backed by gardens, bars, fast foods and entertainments. On the northern edge of the resort, there are the two adjoining beaches of Troya 1 and Troya 2, which are protected by breakwaters.

Things to Do

Watersports are almost unlimited and include jet skis, banana boats and fly fish, sailing, kite boarding, scuba diving, parascending, water skiing and wakeboarding.
Other popular activities include Go-karting, golf and horse riding. Quad bikes and push bike hire is also a great way to get about and jeep safaris are an excellent way to get off the beaten track and see a different side to Tenerife.

Walk along the long promenade; in one direction you can walk through all the resorts of the Costa Adeje including San Eugenio, Torviscas, Fanabe and El Duque, alongside the beaches and around the Puerto Colon marina, all the way to La Caleta. In the opposite direction you can walk around Los Cristianos harbour and along the promenade into the protected natural park of Montana de Guaza.

Take a bus into the Teide National Park and take the cable car to the summit of Mount Teide. This is the highest peak in Spain and naturally affords spectacular views.

Take a boat trip. Playa de las Americas has the Puerto Colon Marina at one end of the resort and the Los Cristianos harbour at the other. Between the two you can choose from dolphin and whale watching trips, leisure cruises, big game fishing trips, diving trips, ferries to neighbouring Canary islands or even hire your own yacht.
