Where to Stay
There are plenty of accommodation options, with numerous hotels lining the coast at Puerto del Carmen, and boutique villas further inland. Thankfully, strict building regulations on the island mean that the coast isn't littered with high-rise complexes.
Self-catering options are always a popular choice on the island – try the Costa Sal apartments in Puerto del Carmen. Their spacious 'Luxury Villas' have two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a private hot tub in the garden. See costasal.com.
