Nestled on the southern coast of Tenerife is the lively resort of Golf del Sur. As the name suggests, this destination is a top spot for golfers, although there is a lot more going on besides! Packed with restaurants, nightlife and entertainment, this is a popular choice for families and couples looking for sunshine, relaxation and good times.
Let’s tee off with golf… Golfers from all over the world come to this verdant area to enjoy the eternal spring-like climate and abundance of sunshine. Much of the landscape of Golf del Sur is made up of lush greens, palm tree lined roads and beautiful courses with stunning views over the ocean.
In particular, a 27-hole golf course dominates the scenery encompassing vivid indigenous flowers, cacti and other colourful plants. It is known as a championship course and consists of some particularly challenging holes, has an impressive ravine of coloured rocks and large bunkers to test your accuracy skills. Of course there is also the all important clubhouse!
Playing golf in a natural environment and feeling the warm sun on your back is the idea of a dream holiday for many people.
This is a family-friendly resort with a large selection of restaurants and bars dotted around. International cuisine is served in a variety of restaurants that line a beautiful promenade connecting the main area of the Golf del Sur with another smaller neighbourhood called San Blas. Following this route is a complete joy; listen to the sound of the waves as you stroll in the sunshine feeling a gentle breeze in the air.
You will find a commercial centre in San Blas consisting of three different levels, which are full of bars, cafes and restaurants with live music and entertainment on offer most evenings. A popular nightclub is also located here and draws in the crowds with a resident DJ playing funky house and dance music every night of the week.
Continuing along the promenade for another few minutes takes you past the resort’s best hotel by far. The Sandos San Blas Hotel Reserva Ambiental & Golf stands like a beacon, rising from a beautiful natural landscape. Spain-Tenerife works with luxurious hotels in leading locations offering great deals – and this sure is one of them! It is a unique eco-friendly secluded retreat surrounded by volcanic rock, endemic plants, a lake and interesting walking trails.
