White or black-sand beaches, where you can enjoy a relaxing dip in the middle of winter or in the summer, volcanic sea-beds, where diving is a unique visual experience, sail the waters of the south and glimpse the rich colony of dolphins and whales that inhabit our waters, or try out your favourite water sports. Discover the wealth of our coast and the Atlantic Ocean around us.
But the sea around us offers far more. The volcanic sea-beds of the island offer a genuine submarine spectacle for divers and the sea-beds of Garachico are outstanding.
We can organise professional excursions from the hotel for dives anywhere on the island.
Another of the highlights of the marine wildlife around us. From Los Gigantes dock, there are boat trips to see the large concentrations of whales and dolphins that live in the area. A fantastic excursion that you can combine with a lovely dip in the sea.
The coast and the sea
Discover the wealth of our coast
“La playa del muelle” (beach by the dock): at what used to be the Garachico docks, is great for long-distance swimming without the movement of the waves. Just a 5-minute walk from the Hotel.
“El Caletón”: A set of natural pools formed after the volcanic eruption in 1706, and gradually sculpted by the sea ever since to form whimsical shapes where you can enjoy the sea in a natural pool.
La Caleta de Interian Beach (10 mins by car): pebble and black-sand beach that contrasts with the green of the mountains and the blue of the ocean.
Las Arenas Beach (15 mins by car): the attraction of this beach is that we can only fully enjoy it from May to October, as the might of the sea fills it with large stones during the rest of the year.
Las Mujeres Beach: This is a 10-minute walk from La Arena Beach. It is an isolated pebble and sand beach offering privacy and views over the Teno massif.
In the north and the south, you can find large beaches and small covers, either to relax in the sand or for your favourite water sport (surfing, kite-surfing, windsurfing, etc.).
