Los Cristianos is an old fishing town which has evolved into one of Tenerife’s most lively and popular holiday destinations.
Glorious beaches, a charming harbour, fabulous shops and vibrant nightlife make this exciting resort on the south west coast of the island a big hit with visitors seeking a feast of fun in the sun.
The huge tourist boom in the 1970s and 1980s saw this old town grow into a popular holiday resort on Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands.
Los Cristianos is an imposing town, with a towering mountainous background, abundance of swaying palm trees and charming harbour, packed with yachts and boats.
A massive pedestrianised area in Los Cristianos is home to a myriad of superb restaurants, bustling bars and pulsating nightclubs.
Shopaholics will love Los Cristianos with its huge range of glitzy boutiques, designer clothing stores, jewellery outlets and electronic goods shops. The resort’s popular market is the place to barter for crafts and clothing bargains.
Two of the three beaches at Los Cristianos have wonderful white sands, including Playa de las Vistas – this is more appealing than the black volcanic sands you’ll find along the coast at the nearby resort of Playa de las Américas.
The beaches have plenty of excellent facilities including open-air bars, children’s play areas, volleyball, showers and restaurants. Water sports enthusiasts are well catered for with plenty of jet-skiing, windsurfing, kayaking and parasailing going on. Other popular activities include swimming, scuba diving, snorkelling and banana boat rides.
Los Cristianos is a hive of vibrant nightlife when the sun goes down – cocktail bars and cafes, pulsating night clubs and energetic live music venues ensure a feast of fun from dusk till dawn. You’ll find a host of venues along the promenade and among the old town backstreets, where the music pumps out until sunrise.
During the summer months you’ll encounter mini festivals and giant parties on the beach, where revellers are wowed by dazzling light shows and the latest sound played by top DJs.
Los Cristianos is ideally placed for Tenerife South Airport, which is just 15kms away and is within easy reach of the upbeat resort of Playa de las Américas, with its vibrant nightlife, fabulous hotels and excellent restaurants.
With all-year-round sunshine and no shortage of thrilling things to see and do, Los Cristianos is a dream come true for families, couples and groups of friends craving an unforgettable getaway.
