It took a while for the merits of Costa Calma to be widely recognised by the tourist community. Its roughly an eighty kilometre drive from the airport and boasts some incredible beaches. It was around the mid eighties when visitors started to flock to this part of the island.
The completion of the road between Puerto del Rosario to Morro Jable really opened up the gates to tourism however the area had its first hotel constructed in the late seventies. Costa Calma now offers a multitude of accommodation options as well as great bars and restaurants. Its another part where you will find plenty of German being spoken among the vacationers.
Its a really lovely drive to take in your hire car from the airport, topped off by the main road where you can see fabulous palm trees and pines lining your entry. Playa Barca is the main beach and offers great facilities whatever your choice be it windsurfing or a quiet bit of sunbathing.
