At the base of the area you can find commercial areas with shops, restaurants & bars. Atalaya Isdabe is situated just across and beach side off the A7. Predominantly consisting of holiday apartment complexes, some beachside villas can also be found in this area as well as a the Atalaya Park Golf Hotel and a few nice chiringuitos on the beach.
El Paraiso is a large residential area around the Paraiso Golf course (18H) with a wide array of different types of properties found here. This as opposed to El Pilar, which is a separate and smaller villa neighbourhood adjacent to El Paraiso. At the bottom of this area, along the A7, you can find plenty of supermarkets, bars & restaurants.
These areas are situated beach side off the A7 and are almost completely comprised of quiet villa neighbourhoods. Walking distance to nice sandy beaches and a few traditional chiringuitos.
Situated just inland off the A7, the area is a mix of larger apartment complexes and independent houses. In the back of this area you can also find the Bel Air tennis club.
The neighbourhood of Cancelada has the look and feel of a tiny village with its corresponding available services of shops, eateries etc. Just across the A7 on the beach side you can find Costalita which is known for its larger apartment complexes. This area may be interesting if you are looking for an affordable beach side apartment. The Villa Padierna Beach Club & Tennis Club are also located here.
Central to this area is the prestigious Villa Padierna Hotel with its gorgeous golf courses Los Flamingos Golf (18H), Alferini Golf (18H) and finally Tramores Golf (18H). The focus here is on luxurious contemporary apartment complexes and villas which means that generally speaking, the properties on offer here come with a high quality finish but are perhaps not the most economical compared to other areas.
Situated on the beachside between Cancelada and Selwo and home to a few very high end apartment complexes, offering top notch facilities on site with a high quality finish build. Be prepared for some higher community fees!
Famous for its animal park, Selwo Aventura, the area also features a villa neighbourhood slightly further inland offering some amazing panoramic views as well as a number of apartment complexes around La Resina Golf & Country Club (9H).
