Golf del Sur Tenerife Resort Review

Golf del Sur is a modern resort built around an 18 hole golf course. Amarilla Golf and Country Club, its neighbour, has effectively now become part of Golf del Sur also has an 18 hole championship golf course. These were separate resorts until a few years ago when roads were linked across the Barranco that used to separate them.

The resort is made up of individual hotel and apartment complexes that are centered on entertainment areas. The central square is at San Blas, which is to the east of the resort near Los Abrigos, where there are shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants. There is also a new marina where are boats and yachts moored with a couple of café bars where you can sit and relax.

There are also several excellent restaurants on the seafront next to the marina where you can have a drink, lunch or dinner overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. A coastal path runs along the coast from the marina to the village of Los Abrigos, where there are some fine fish restaurants. Los Abrigos has mostly avoided the temptation to develop and remains a typical Tenerife fishing village.

Golf del Sur is made up of residential complexes 4 and 5-star hotels and timeshare blocks. Amarilla Golf is to the west of the resort and is much older and is mainly residential apartments and villa complexes.

Golf del Sur Nightlife

Golf del Sur is a quiet and relaxed resort and has no night clubs as such. Still, there are plenty of bars, and some excellent restaurants and a couple of cabaret show bars with tribute type acts. There is more to this resort than the central San Blas area where there is nightly musical entertainment in the square. If you explore the resort, there are some very nice places where you can eat and be entertained. Golf del Sur won't suit those looking for clubs where you can dance till dawn but will suit holidaymakers looking for a more relaxed evening out with diner and some drinks.

Golf del Sur Beaches

Golf del Sur is not the place to come for a beach holiday, so you will probably want to have accommodation with a swimming pool if you're going to sunbathe. There is a tiny pebble beach by the San Miguel Marina made of black volcanic sand, pebbles and boulders. There is also a small beach at San Blas with a small patch of black sand and large boulders but is not really suitable for bathing or paddling in. Take a look at our photos of Golf del Sur.
