Today, La Playa has been transformed by well-tended apartments complexes and new rows of houses, which contain a diverse amount of boutiques and shops.
Restaurants, bars and a disco liven up the scene of this area. On the beach promenade of La Playa, apartment buildings with nice Canarian wooden balconies add to the charm of the place.
