About the location
Relaxation is the name of the game in Playa Paraiso, a postcard-perfect resort in southwestern Tenerife. With an unspoilt, off-the-beaten track appeal, Playa Paraiso is the place to soak up the local way of life along with the Canarian sunshine. The hub of daytime activity is the attractive saltwater lido and small shingle beach, with the rocky coastline providing superb walks for nature lovers. If you’re craving some soft sand to nap on, it’s worth the 10-minute drive to nearby Costa Adeje, home to two Blue Flag beaches – including one with sand imported from the Sahara. There are a cluster of tapas bars and restaurants to while away the evening in, or those looking for more vibrant nightlife can head to Playa de las Americas, just 10 minutes' drive away.
