About the location
Secluded and peaceful, a holiday to Guia de Isora is where you take a step back from the world. The springboard to Tenerife’s natural wonders, the resort has Mount Teide’s national park on its doorstep and a beautiful rugged coastline. The rocky outcrops, underwater craves and pristine waters are the perfect spot for scuba diving, while Playa de San Juan offers a more typical Canarian beach with a colourful seafront promenade. Golfers are in luck – Guia de Isora is around half an hour’s drive from the spectacular ABAMA Golf Course, which sprawls for almost four miles past 22 lakes, waterfalls and white-sand bunkers, with stunning sea views from the greens.
