Amarilla Golf Tenerife Review


Amarilla Golf is a small resort that has, to all intense and purposes, merged with its neighbour Golf del Sur, known collectively as “The Golf”, and is scattered around a superb 18-hole golf course beside the Ocean. The resort is mainly residential low rise apartments and villas with expat residents, with only a couple of hotel complexes at the Fairways Club and the Amarilla Golf and Country Club House.


There is some noise from low flying aircraft due to its proximity to the airport, mainly landing rather than taking off, as the approach flight path crosses the northern part of the resort.

Amarilla Golf Nightlife

Amarilla Golf nightlife is very low key, with a handful of bars scattered around the resort where you can get a drink and have some food. A couple of the bars also have some entertainment in the evening, live music, karaoke, that sort of thing. You can walk into Golf del Sur where there is a bit more going on, although by the standards of some of the other resorts in Tenerife this is also very quiet.


If you are looking to get away from the crowds, but still want to be able to go out and have a meal or a quiet drink, this area may suite you. There are a bars offering live entertainment on the Golf del Sur side, but if you are looking for lively bars and club scene you won’t find it here.

Amarilla Golf Attractions

This area is ideal for golfers, as you have two of the best golf courses in Tenerife and in the whole of the Canary Islands on your door step.


The Amarilla Golf Course offers an 18 hole championship course, 9 hole pitch and putt, golf pro shop, driving range, café bar and the club house, which also offers meals and drinks and also has a swimming pool.


The resort offers minimal facilities, but there are some nice quiet bars and restaurants around the area, but there is no real centre to speak of. The San Miguel Marina is the home to some lovely yachts and a submarine. Here there are a couple of bars where you can enjoy a peaceful drink by the boats. The ‘Bar La Torre’ at the Marina entrance, on the roof of the marina control tower, is a great place to sit with a drink and watch the sunset.

Amarilla Golf Beaches

There are no beaches to speak of, only a very small black sand and pebble beach down by the Aguamarina complex, so beach lovers will need to go somewhere else, although most of the apartment complexes do have their own swimming pools.
