Playa de La Arena, Tenerife - SPAIN
This second card from Tenerife shows the Playa de La Arena (Beach of Sand) touristic center near Los Gigantes (The Giants) one of the most famous sites in the island. I've been in Tenerife a dozen years ago... got to go back there one of this days. Thank you very much Helena for remembering your little brother! This postcard took 27 days to arrive!
The resort of Playa de la Arena is located on the south west coast of Tenerife, Canary Islands Spain. The resort has a small busy beach with the characteristic black sand of the area black sand one of the finest volcanic sand beaches in the area. Playa de las Americas is approximatly 30km to the south. The fabulous promenade, see photo above, has a good selection of restaurants and bars. The appeal of this resort is the quieter and relaxed lifestyle and the pretty and rugged coastline.
