Playa de las Americas
La Caleta doesn't have any beaches itself so head to nearby Playa de las Americas if you crave sand between your toes and a dip in the ocean. With wonderful water sports, a submarine to explore the ocean floor and fantastic restaurants, what more can you want from a beach holiday? There are regular buses between the two resorts if you don't fancy hiring a car.
The Sheraton La Caleta Hotel is a luxurious hotel with sea views and three restaurants to choose from. There is an on-site shop, children's club and even a spa. This hotel is perfect for couples and families and has loads to do for all ages.
Playa de las Americas is a short trip away, as is Playa Fañabe, both great for sports, and connected by direct links from many of the hotels in La Caleta.
