Playa De Santiago

Playa de Santiago is a quiet village on the South coast which gets lots of sun and is a working fishing port. Alongside the harbourside are several restaurants offering local cuisine where you can while away the hours watching the fishing boats unloading their catches.

The village offers a modern medical centre, an excellent bakery, two banks, a pharmacy, post office, two hair salons, two grocery shops and some local craft/gift shops. To the West of the village lies the island airport, here only small aircraft can land and there are two flights daily to Tenerife and Gran Canaria. The largest hotel on the island, Hotel Jardin Tecina, which has an 18 hole golf course, is situated on a headland at one end of the village. Here you may enjoy the hotel entertainments or sample one of the several restaurants which offer a variety of local and international dishes.

Development on the island is strictly regulated and any new buildings within the village blend in with the traditional architecture and dramatic cliffs which act as a backdrop.
