By the end of the sixties "Costa del Silencio" was discovered by Belgium winter holidaymakers. Foreign investors took interest in the development of this most southerly situated area in Tenerife and soon afterwards the first tourist complex was realised, known as Ten Bel.
During the nineties Ten Bel had to deal with serious competition from the more prestigious hotels in Playa de las Americas.

Strand Las Galletas  

Their tourist market share decreased and also because of the poorly maintained infrastructure, the rental of apartments and houses dropped dramatically. It soon became clear that something needed to be done.

A new infrastructure plan was presented by the Town Hall of Arona in collaboration with the council of Tenerife ( Cabildo de Tenerife ). The co-finance out of the European region development fund was approved and during the years 2007 and 2008 the sum of approx. 3 million euros was invested into new roads, green areas, cycling / jogging facilities and general accessible pavements. In the year 2009, they started with the construction of "Theme Park La Garañana". A foreseen investment of approx, 4 million euros. This sport and leisure park has a surface of 66.000 m2 ( ! ) and its location is just next to the urbanization of "Villa Tropical". The expected opening will take place by the end of 2012.
The cosy beach of "Alborada" received more sand. Repairs on the sea water pool have been done. Entry is 5 euros per day and it has a fantastic sunbathing area. The beach is situated at 1.100 metres distance from the villa. Since the early eighties, the well known diving school "Coral Sub" achieved a good international reputation. Located directly at the beach and sea water pool of "Alborada", this school is the perfect place for beginners (and advanced) divers. Amazing to see the impressive stingrays and sea turtles …….really an amazing adventure!
The complete coastline around "Montaña Amarilla" has been improved and is now accessible for pedestrians, swimmers, divers and mountain bikers. The coastline can be reached within 900 metres from "Villa Tropical".
A new harbour has been constructed in the nearby fishing village "Las Galletas". Over here you find many restaurants / bars directly at the ocean front, an Italian home made icemaker, a fishing market, a black sandy beach and sufficient berths for boats. The village is situated at around 2.200 metres distance from "Villa Tropical".
