A day shopping in the South of Tenerife
Going shopping in the Canary Islands is full of advantages. One of them is the wide range of different shops found on the islands. They range from open air markets where you can buy local handicrafts, antiques or costume jewellery to large commercial centres with the most important international designer names as well as a varied selection of restaurants, cinemas and leisure areas.
The quality of Canary products is another of the advantages. Cheese, wine, honey and other local products or Canary brands of swimwear, along with prints by artists such as Cesar Manrique are usually to be found in visitors’ suitcases. But the best thing about shopping in the Canary Islands is, no doubt, the fact that the tax is the lowest in Europe, thus enabling you to buy almost any product cheaper. You can’t ask for more.
South Tenerife’s golden mile
The Avenida de Las Américas manages to condense an enjoyable and diverse shopping area into just one and a half kilometres of road. A cosmopolitan and lively tourist destination, this road in Playa de Las Américas has more than earned its nickname of the ‘golden mile’ of south Tenerife: an open-air shopping paradise, suitable for those who can’t begin to contemplate a holiday without shopping, or for those happy to just window shop.
Starting out from the Hotel Europe Villa Cortés, shoppers will find bazaars, perfume shops, restaurants and the long-standing Parque Santiago III complex – which is home to bargain electrical goods – until arriving at the Safari shopping centre. Its attractive fountains illuminate the night sky with its multi-coloured light show, inviting visitors to discover its most exclusive shops: Escada, Ideal Joyeros, the Nike Store, Adidas, Timberland and various boutiques selling brands like Armani, Versace, Dolce and Gabbana, as well as the main national and international fashion chains. Everything you need to keep up with the latest trends.
The quality and variety of shops, restaurants and attractions provide a full day’s distraction for the whole family.
One of the most innovative parts of this shopping mall in the south of Tenerife is the cinema, with seven comfortable theatres equiped with the latest in movie technology. English-language films are shown daily.
This shopping centre has four floors with the lowest floor being an underground car park.
The centre has more than 100 outlets where you can find a variety of Tenerife shops selling anything and everything from jewellery to perfume, novel gift ideas to Canarian delicacies.
