San Miguel de Abona is one of the places of the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife which keeps intact its traditional spirit, full of contrasts and natural charm, which offers visitors a passage in time and an invitation to dive into the local environment with only simple stroll through the narrow streets of the old town.
Located in the south of Tenerife, with an exceptional climate that only the Canary Islands can offer, San Miguel also has a quality tourism infrastructure, with a notable offer for golf holidays and luxury resorts in San Blas, Los Abrigos, Guincho the Oasis del Sur and all the coast of Amarilla Golf.
To enjoy a nice image of this charming town there are two viewpoints nearby, El Fronton and La Centinela, from where you can also see some of the neighbouring villas and towns such as Granadilla de Abona, where the Airport Tenerife South is located.
But the best way to discover it, is to go into the old town and spend a night from guaniche to guaniche, small typical taverns where to try some of the best products that are produced in this town with farming and agricultural roots.
The walk through the heart of San Miguel is a must. Although this is a small town of simple architecture, with Canarian roots and beautiful whitewashed Canarian houses on the foot of the hill, it has been declared a historic-artistic town, of a high value and in it you can find little gems of everyday Canarian life and samples of its people’s character.
The big celebration is the Pilgrimage of San Miguel, which is held in the second half of September, coinciding with the end of summer and the beginning of the so called summer of San Miguel. The celebration is very attractive, with varied gastronomic products, dances and folk music, and it involves not only the locals but also tourists and residents from all over the island of Tenerife.
