Situated not far from the huge urbanization Golf del Sur, this is a small, sleepy fishing village. While it is gradually suffering the influx of tourism, it is still, for the moment, retaining its traditional Canarian charm.
To get to it, exit the TF-1 motorway at exit 24 (San Miguel/Los Abrigos/Las Galletas). From there, just follow the signs and the road will take you straight down to the village.
Once there, you'll find a selection of bars, restaurants, modest hotels and residential properties.
A prominent feature is the traditional harbour. The village's main industry is fishing and the small inlet houses quite a busy collection of boats with maybe a couple of trawlers.
This affiliation with the fishing industry mean that the restaurants that line the harbour walk can serve very fresh seafood dishes every day and, indeed, they have been hailed as some of the best on the island.
Other forms of Canarian cuisine are available, of course and you can avail yourself of excellent tapas in these bars and restaurants.
The village has its own fiesta, celebrating the patron saint of Granadilla de Abona, San Antonio de Padua. Every June 13th, there is a large pilgrimage to the village, culminating, in the evening, with festivities in the village square, including music and fireworks.
As an added attraction, the village features something quite rare on Tenerife - a night market. Also in the square, this occurs on Tuesday evenings, from 6pm-10pm, selling all manner of things.
This is a tranquil, picturesque place, still just about representative of the true Tenerife.
