Located on Tenerife’s southwest coast, Los Cristianos is quieter than its neighbour Playa de Las Americas. It has beautiful sandy beaches and a great selection of restaurants, bars and shops. Our Los Cristianos hotels are ideal for a relaxing family holiday.
The main beach at Los Cristianos has a wide stretch of golden sand and is sheltered by the harbour. There are plenty of sun loungers and parasols available and a choice of water sports.
On the other side of the harbour you have the wide sandy beach of Playa de la Vistas. The conditions here are ideal for swimming and for paddling. The wave-breakers ensure that only smallest waves reach the bay and this makes the beach very popular with families.
You will find a good range of restaurants, bars and shops on the promenade area behind both beaches.
Shops, Restaurants and Bars
Los Cristianos has dining options to suit all tastes including some great seafood restaurants serving fresh fish from the harbour as well as many international restaurants
In the San Telmo district you will find quaint pavement cafes and chic bars. Towards Playa de las Americas the Safari Centre is a modern entertainment complex with top end restaurants, stylish bars and designer shops including Armani and Hugo Boss.
Things to Do
