Surf and turf
Come and relax on the long beach of Playa de San Agustin. Right at your fingertips this beach is never crowded and there will be plenty of room to put your towel out and enjoy the mild weather. This beach is much quieter than its neighbour Playa del Ingles and you can enjoy snorkelling and scuba diving at your leisure. A gentle slope from beach to sea means the shoreline is great for children to play in.
If you’re up for an adventure sign up with Diving Center Nautico and take scuba diving lessons from seasoned professionals. You can also have fun exploring the ocean floor and abundant marine life in San Agustin.
After your swim grab a bite to eat at the many restaurants lining the boardwalk above the beach. With a variety of cuisine there is something for everyone’s tastes. You can enjoy some authentic Canarian seafood dishes, Greek food, Mediterranean, or the raved about Italian gelato shop and pizzeria. Hotels may provide a meal plan, as is often the case with an all inclusive holiday, but be sure to get out and about and taste as much local cuisine as possible.
