Playa De Fanabe

Hi,

Heading off to Sunwing in Playa de Fanabe in October with our 12 year old and was just wondering if there are enough restaurants close to there or are we better going into the centre of de las Americas? and if so is it walkable? Also hoping that Fanabe beach has jet ski hire or do you know of any close beaches that hire them.

Sorry for all the questions.

Thanks.

Plenty Bars / Restaurants within a few mins walk from the Sunwing...cant help with jet-ski hire. PDLA is a canny walk....est. 35-45 mins.

Hi Scottishmidge,

Plenty of nice places for eating nearby. Let me know what you like and I will point you in the right direction. Dont think there is jet ski hire at Playa Fanabe, however you should find it at Playa Del Duque beach (IMO one of the best beaches on the island) If you head down the front from your apartment then turn right and keep walking you will reach it in 10/15 mins. It is a lovely area.

You will find Jet Ski hire at Puerto Colon just 10 minutes from fanabe beach. Just follow the path along the beach and you will come to the marina. It is where all the boats are dry docked

Thanks for all the replies.

Playa Del Duque and Puerto Colon sound just the place and not too far to walk. Will try them. Thanks.

Fatbobscotland - we like most food but with a 12 year old it can get a bit repetative at times! Just wondered what you recommended.

Also, are there any music pubs close by? Nothing too boistrous but family friendly?

Last question honest :) any good maps of Playa de Fanabe?

Thanks

Heres a map of hotels to give you an idea of where the aforementioned places are tenerifetravel.com/maps/southtenerife_large.…

Also just so you know there are jet skis for hire near Playa las vistas at the Los Cris end ,yes a fair walk but if the wifes heading for the sunday market it gives you an option of something to do whilst shes shopping !!!

head down the beach from the sunwing and there are two family friendly bars doing karaoke and with groups on. One is the Olde Ocean and the other is the First & Last

There are some good restaurants along there too that do good food for not much money

Hi Scottishmidge,

There is a place not far from you called the Rodeo which will make a change from your usual stuff. Its not far but you should probably get a taxi as it is on the other side of the motorway. It is a large all you can eat buffet which is 17.5 euros for adults (not sure how much for kids), great variety of salads, cold meats, chips, onion rings, curry sauce etc, however best bit is that the waiters come round all the time with different varieties of meat which are all excellent. Pork, steak, roast beef, gammon, sausages etc. You just choose what you like and you can have a break if you are getting too full.

If you walk down the beachfront you will find "Otellos" which does great garlic chicken, pretty cheap too.

You will get a map handed to you in the arrival hall at the airport.

Just got back from Sunwing last night - suffering withdrawal syptoms already but this weather is helping!

Just reporting that there were jet skis to hire from Fanabe beach. Also, I ate at Coeur de Filet and Otellos and would recommend both. Also, Gran Reserva Steakhouse next door to the apartments on Calla Londres - fantastic!
