Not sure where Paraisao Royal is, but Las Vistas is a lovely big sandy beach. There is also a smaller sandy beach, El Camison, a few minutes walk from there, directly behind the Mediterranean Palace Hotel. Both of these are near the Safari Centre, if you’re anywhere near there, but PDLA is a large resort.

No all the beaches are not volcanic. There are some lovely yellow beaches. Not familiar with where you're staying so can't advise on closest beach. Best beach IMO is the Del Duque beach. It's a small bay.

Have a look at this map tenerifetravel.com/maps/southtenerife_large.… your apt are in 7D and your closest beach is La Troya, which is quite nice with plenty to do around it.

Not sure what you’re looking for but there’s go karting and Siam Water Park – my sister and her family love it and there are free buses from the resort for both.

For the evenings, there’s Veronicas and Starco, almost opposite each other, where all the young ones go if that’s what you are looking for. Heard good things about a new bar which has opened at the beach end of Veronicas, but I can’t remember what it’s called. There’s also an area called The Patch (near the H10 Las Palmeras Hotel), but last time we were there it was looking a bit run down around there, but the Gaelic Corner,and Dubliner underneath seem to be popular. We also like the Railway Tavern next to the Gaelic Corner. It’s a small English style pub - we usually end our night here – great fish & chip shop next door for a bag of chips on the way home! There’s also the Paz strip (under the Parque La Paz apartments), which is a row of bars, some with live entertainment and Harry’s Cocktail Bar on the top floor of the Safari Centre. A Hard Rock Café has just opened near the Safari Centre – not tried it yet, but will do when we’re over there in March. There are lots of restaurants in the Safari Centre, but they are a bit more expensive, or if you like American style diners, there Harleys Bar, a couple of minutes walk from the San Eugenio shopping centre.

Use the map from Aguilas, which will give you an idea of where things are, as this is just the area that we know and there’s lots more.
