Las Caletillas Tenerife Review

Las Caletillas is a Spanish town through and through. It is a proper Spanish town and only has a couple of hotels for tourists. This means you are truly away from the masses of some of the other resorts, so if you are looking for something with genuine Spanish feel this could be the place for you.


Las Caletillas Nightlife

As the town is a real Spanish one there is no entertainment as such outside of what the hotels may offer. The main street runs parallel to the beach promiade a bit up the hill; here you will find more Spanish bars and restaurants and some fine shops and supermarkets. There are also some trendy bars.


There are plenty of restaurants along the sea front promenade, offering genuine Spanish fare as well as italian and pizza restuarants. No ‘International restaurants’, British bars, or restaurant chains here. Bring your Spanish phrase book as little English is spoken. The restaurants will offer you a genuine Spanish experience with fantastic food, and all will be very welcoming and helpful as they are truly proud of the food on offer.

Las Caletillas Beaches

The beach is well cared for and is made up of black volcanic sand and large pebbles. There are also raised manmade beach areas with soft volcanic shingle and wooden decking sunbathing areas surrounded by palm trees. There are also small manmade coves where you can swim in the sea.


There is a lovely palm tree lined promenade that runs from the Tenerife Tour Hotel for about 1km towards Calandaria, were you can take a leisurely stroll and perhaps stop for lunch or a glass of wine or coffee.
