Playa Paraiso Hotels & Aparthotels
Playa Paraiso is situated on the coast in the South of Tenerife, Canary Islands, about 8km north of Playa de la Americas. The resort is located next to 3 pleasant small sheltered bays & each bay has a beach.
Two of the hotel / apartment blocks are 20 stories high.
Playa Paraiso is a purpose built quiet resort and offers a few bars, some with music, shops and restaurants.
The translation of Playa Paraiso is Paradise beach, I would say that the person who gave it this name had a very vivid imagination or had been drinking some of the hard stuff.
There are 3 small pebble / sand beaches that are ideal areas for snorkeling and diving, along the rocky coastline. The beaches are located in the 3 small bays that have rocky headlands. Although the bays are pleasant, at the moment the beaches are a little disappointing because the amount of sand compared to pebble is small.
There are plans to improve these beaches.
The beach is augmented by a very popular large saltwater lido.
Heading towards Playa de la Americas you will find a small pleasant hamlet of El Puertito and continuing on past the headland the naturists beach, Playa de Diego Hernandez beach and further along is La Caleta another small resort.
The Lagoon Lido style pool is located in central bay immediately behind the small beach. On the headlands you have the Marques shopping centre and on the other the Roca Nivaria hotel.
A charge is made to enter the lago.
The largo has a restaurant and there is also a scuba diving school based there.
There are 2 shopping centres in Playa Paraiso both marked on our map.
