      It’s a quiet holiday resort compared with Playa de las Américas but there are quite a few bars, cafés and restaurants there.

  2. Really good news for us in Playa de la Arena as the nearest pharmacies were way up the hill in Puerto Santiago or in Alcala. This newly opened pharmacy is centrally located and easy to walk to. Thanks Janet for the good news. Don’t know what I’d do without your website – it’s brilliant. Many thanks for all the work you put into it.
