The location Puerto de Güimar
The town Puerto de Güimar is located at the coast in the south-east of Tenerife. So far, the town is not very crowded by tourists. Whoever goes to this beach will see and feel that the locals are off the beaten tourist track. Composure and tranquillity. The fishermen are sitting at the quay bulkhead, grandmas and grandpas are sitting at the Plaza and watch the children playing. In the summer month and on Sundays families meet at the beach.
The main town Güímar is located up the hills and is famous for the pyramids which got discovered in 1990 by Thor Heyerdahl.
Holiday accommodations are to be found in the rural areas of the towns Güimar and Arafo.
