Puerto Colón is on the south coast of Tenerife and this very popular holiday resort has one of the best marinas on the island. Here you can go on whale and dolphin-watching excursions aboard a catamaran, charter a boat for fishing or go on diving trips to explore the fabulous underwater world that Tenerife offers.
Puerto Colón has its own sandy beach known as Playa la Pinta. The golden sands are ideal for sunbathing and its waters are safe for swimmers. There are sun-beds, sun-shade parasols, and plenty of warm sunshine because this is the south of the island where the best weather can be expected all year around. Playa la Pinta is regarded by many as one of the best beaches in Tenerife and it is also accessible for disabled people.
Puerto Colón is easy to find and is next to the equally popular resort of Playa de las Américas. You can reach it by foot by taking the seafront walkway from Las Américas or by road. Puerto Colón is just below the San Eugenio area and near to Torviscas and Fañabe and there is parking available if travelling by car. There are also regular buses going through San Eugenio and it is a short walk down to Puerto Colón.
Holiday-makers coming to the island often choose self-catering Tenerife apartments which are available for short or long-term rental. There is plenty of this type of Tenerife accommodation on offer in the south and it is easy to get to the Reina Sofía Airport for those arriving in or leaving Tenerife.
Puerto Colón has plenty of restaurants, bars, shops and boutiques selling fashionable beach and holiday-wear. It is a perfect location for anyone who wants to enjoy a holiday in the sun. Palm trees and views of the mountains inland add to its exotic sub-tropical charm and make Puerto Colón a resort in Tenerife South where many tourists choose to return again and again.
