Holiday in San Miguel de Abona for golf beaks, an authentic atmosphere and a low-key stay by the coast
An authentic Canarian atmosphere characterises this beautiful district named after the 17th century chapel around which the town, and later municipality, expanded. This quieter side to the Canary Islands opens doors to plenty of outdoor activities, boasting a landscape of rugged, exceptionally clean beaches and a scattering of natural pools. If sunbathing and water sports are what you’re after then head east towards Granadilla de Abona where Playa de la Tejita’s golden sands meet the foot of Mount Roja, however this region is best known for its excellent golf clubs Golf del Sur and Amarillo Golf.
Head north from the coast and discover charming, quaint villages like Aldea Blanca, San Miguel, and El Fronton, with restaurants offering a traditional menu and authentic ambience. While in Aldea Blanca, stop by San Miguel Castle and learn about the region’s medieval past with theatrical performances that kids and grownups alike will love. Wander around the old quarter, declared an Asset of Cultural Interest, home to a number of interesting buildings such as El Capitán Museo House and Mother Church of San Miguel Arcángel. Treat the kids to a day at Siam Park in Costa Adeje, just 15 minutes away by car.
