ShoppingBack to Guide

No matter which resort you are staying in, there is no shortage of shops. The Canary Islands are a Duty Free Zone, so tobacco and alcohol is cheaper than other European Countries. Your Duty Free allowance is: 1 litre of Spirits and 200 Cigarettes per person.

The popular clothes brands such as Zara and Mango can be found in Playa De Las Americas along with other top quality stores: great for a bit of retail therapy.

Supermarkets and local stores are plentiful no matter which resort you are staying in, even boasting three 'Iceland' shops in the south.

Local markets are held every week (and are well advertised), where you can buy clothes, jewellery, knick-knacks and much more. The main ones are Los Cristianos on Sundays and Fanabe (Adeje) on Thursdays.

There is always a large Car Boot Sale at Guaza early on Sunday mornings. If you are a little more adventurous there is the African Market/Rastro Market/Car Boot on Sunday morning in Santa Cruz (The City), easy to get to on the TITSA bus.

When planning a shopping trip, remember that when you go out of the popular tourist areas, there are still many shops that close at 1pm and reopen at 4 or 5pm. The shops in Santa Cruz City close at 1pm and do not reopen in the evening on Saturdays.

There are large shopping malls on the Island which are open from 9am till 9pm, the largest ones being in Santa Cruz, but the 'Gran Sur' Adeje, at the side of the autopista is within walking distance or a short taxi ride from the popular southern resorts and is well worth a visit.
