Golf del Sur holidays 2019 / 2020
Although predominantly a golf resort, Golf del Sur holidays have much more to offer, including panoramic views of incredible greens, blue seas and colourful villages. The 27-hole championship golf course is sure to please golf enthusiasts, but don’t let the name fool you. The location is ideal for those looking to kick back amongst the natural beauty Tenerife has to offer, as the sea is always in sight and the mountains dominate the distant skyline. Nearby shops and quaint resorts such as Costa del Silencio will ensure there are plenty of things to do that don’t necessarily involve sport on a holiday in Golf del Sur.
Take a trip to Tenerife's gorgeous Golf del Sur and stay at the Sandos san Blas Resort & Golf with its enormous swimming pool, for beautiful, grown-up holidays. Alternatively, the Vincci Tenerife Golf couldn't be any closer to the sea, with picturesque steps leading down to the lapping waves.

Perhaps the most popular attraction you’ll find among the many things to do in Golf del Sur is the 27-hole championship golf course, and with all year sunshine in southern Tenerife there’s never a bad time of the year to take the clubs out for a swing. However, delving beneath the surface you can quickly find a lot more to love about Golf del Sur. It offers a diverse and eclectic holiday with lots to do, making this resort among Spain’s Canary Islands an ideal location to spend some time with friends, family or both.
Visible in the distance all over Golf del Sur is Mount Teide, the highest mountain in Spain. Surrounding the mountain is a national park and a forest, housing a variety of amazing green trees and exotic wildlife. If you like to go hiking, you’ll find the journey filled with natural splendour which is being well preserved for you to enjoy. Don’t worry, you don’t have to walk if you don’t want to, because there’s also the option to drive towards the summit too, if you’re a little tired after all that golfing.
The food in Golf del Sur includes lots of authentic Spanish cuisine that you should take the time to try while you’re here. That means simple but delicious dishes made with plenty of fresh fish, grilled meat, salads and vegetables, and of course great tapas. If you fancy a contrast after a day of sampling the local cuisine and taking it easy at Golf del Sur, you can make your way to the vibrant town of Playa de las Americas. Here you can sip on fruity cocktails at trendy pubs and lavish bars, or dance the night away at one of the many vibrant clubs along the main strip. If the hedonism has left you a little worse for wear the next day, you can lounge on the luxurious beach and absorb the beautiful surroundings of the town.
A holiday in Golf del Sur has plenty of golf for the adults, of course, as it’s aimed mainly at keen golfers and older couples. But it’s also got a few great places to take the kids on a family holiday if you’re travelling with children. There are two theme parks you can visit for the day - Aqualand has slides and pools for all ages, including fun for adults, while Jungle Park is full of exotic animals that kids will love meeting and has three live shows each day.
Cycling or walking around the beautiful countryside is fun for all the family, and there are lots of spectacular views and interesting wildlife to see.
For a day out by the sea, visit Los Cristianos for the day where the kids can play in the sand while you sunbathe.
Action & Adventure
The golfing at Golf del Sur can provide you with plenty of exercise during your holiday, but if you’re looking for something even more action-packed you can certainly find it here.
Get out onto the water in a kayak or go snorkelling in the ocean, exploring the sea caves and underwater life.
If you prefer to explore mountains, the highest peak in Spain - the Teide - is waiting for you. Climb it via cable car for great views and an exciting ride.
Another way to see Golf del Sur from the air is to try paragliding, where you can fly with a professional co-pilot.
There are biking and walking trails all over the region, and you can take special bike tours through the forests and around the lava fields, volcanoes and coastal roads of Golf del Sur.
Golf del Sur has rocky and black sand beaches, so it’s not a great beach location in itself, but the great news is that it’s within easy reach of some fantastic beaches so you can incorporate some sunbathing by the sea into your holiday, no problem.
The convenience of this particular area of the Canary Islands is the accessibility to neighbouring towns. You can sail the seas luxuriously and stop off at Los Cristianos to laze on the lovely beach for a quick picnic or spend the whole day in the sand. If you want to do your own thing you can even hire a boat and explore the seas yourself. Just head to the Tenerife Nautical Center in Costa Adeje where you can rent a multitude of boats and jet skis to get up close and personal with dolphins.
The nightlife at Golf del Sur is laid back and casual. It’s not a place for all-night clubbing and huge nightspots, but you can have an excellent night out if you want to absorb some local culture and relax with a drink.
Catering mainly to golfers, older holidaymakers and couples, the entertainment in Golf del Sur in the evenings is largely centred around hotels, where evening shows include live music and performances of all kinds.
There are some small bars open around Golf del Sur, and restaurants are open late so you can take your time over dinner. For a lively, late night out, you can head over to Los Cristianos or Playa de las Americas where you can visit the late night cafés and bars along the sea front, party all night and then take a short journey back to Golf del Sur.
Golf del Sur is perfect for a romantic holiday, with its relaxed pace of life and stunning scenery. Couples who love golf will be particularly impressed with the facilities here, but you don’t need to be interested in playing golf to enjoy the natural beauty of the region.
Go on a kayaking tour in a transparent boat so you can see the underwater views, or go out for a cruise on a glass-bottomed boat and fit in some dolphin and whale watching while you’re there.
If you don’t want to sail, you can try snorkelling instead for a closer look at the marine wildlife and even visit some sea caves.
On a ‘sunset and stars’ tour you can ride a cable car as you marvel at the gorgeous skies of Tenerife, or spend an evening tasting some of the local wine.
The easiest and best way to get out and experience the culture of Golf del Sur is on foot, so you should take a guided walk if you can. Through your guide you can find out all about the history and landscape of this beautiful part of the world.
A hike to the mountain of Teide or to visit the volcanoes will give you an appreciation of the landscape, while a wander through the markets, streets and natural parks of Golf del Sur will give you a real insight into the daily life of local people in Tenerife.
One fun and informative way to absorb some of the flavour of Golf del Sur is to visit some of the wineries and vineyards in the region, where you can taste the wine for yourself and see how it’s grown and produced.
