The Harbour Club
The Harbour Club is unmistakable, with its terracotta-red facade jutting out of the majestic cliffs of Los Gigantes. The terraced apartments are elegantly furnished and come with a fully-equipped kitchenette, a lounge and an enclosed balcony with unbeatable vistas of the ocean beyond. The clubhouse and swimming pool lie across the road from the apartments, and if you don’t fancy self- catering you can enjoy breakfast, tapas and drinks from the poolside snack bar. Your dining options include a selection of authentic Spanish dishes and international fare. Dining al fresco in the evening on the restaurant’s terrace is the perfect spot to watch the sunset.
