Guia de Isora is the name of a municipality in the south west of Tenerife which incorporates the smaller resorts of Playa de San Juan and Alcala. The capital of the region is also called Guia de Isora, a small town set on an inland hill. Expect a more traditional Tenerife when you venture to the coast. There are markets, banana farms and fishing boats bobbing in the bays. Guia de Isora is a far cry from tourist-centric Costa Adeje or Los Gigantes.

Your guide to Guia De Isora holidays
In Guia de Isora itself, you’ll find a resplendent historic quarter which harks back to the age before tourism on Tenerife. Marked as an area of Asset of Cultural Interest in 2009, there are winding streets, small alleyways and a myriad of pastel-coloured Spanish-style houses and shops. Once you’ve had a look at the history, try one of the many hiking routes dotted around the Guia de Isora region, crisscrossing the Montaña de Tejina and the seemingly endless vineyards.
If the coastline is more your thing, a walk along the promenade on the Playa de San Juan is a gorgeous way to spend an afternoon. From there towards Alcala, you’ll pass bays with black sands and natural rock pools.
Playa de San Juan is a charming resort with a growing affinity for an upmarket style, but with a reasonable price tag. It’s also one of the few remaining functioning fishing villages left on Tenerife. There are two beaches in Playa de San Juan, one a small cove ideal for frolicking little ones and then a long sandy beach undergoing developments. Along the wooden walkway in San Juan you’ll find a number of restaurants and bars, but no messy nightlife like other parts of the island.
