Staying in the west - Tazacorte or Puntagarda

We have decided to stay on the west of the isand and are undecided about whether Tazacorte or Puntagarda would be best. Any advice about the merits or downsides of these two places would be much appreciated.

Thank you

1. Re: Staying in the west - Tazacorte or Puntagarda

Although both in the west, they are quite different.

Tazacorte is a small resort right by the sea

It has a selection of apartments just 50m from the beach

It is one of the warmest places on the island – and many sources say it has the most sunshine hours in the whole of Europe

It has a selection of excellent restaurants around the corner from the apartments

Puntagorda is a village at approx. 600 metres above sea level in a countryside/pine forest setting

It has a selection of holiday homes for rent, both Traditional Canarian houses or of that style

There are a few good restaurants to choose from.

I hope that helps a little but do ask if there is anything specific we can help with!
