Los Cristianos Holidays

Travel Agent's View

Travel Agents View Los Cristianos has a long sandy beach with crystal clear waters

There is no shortage of things to do away from the beach, popular family days out include Tenerife Zoo, the Eagle Park and the Aqua Park

Located in the south of the island next to Playa de las Americas, Los Cristianos offers a vast range of entertainment and activities as well as shopping and dining choices, ideal for couples, families and anyone looking to have a fun filled holiday in the sun.

Los Cristianos beach is long and sandy with crystal clear waters making it ideal for children to play and paddle, there are plenty of sun loungers for hire and bars and restaurants nearby for refreshments. A variety of water sports such as jet skis, banana boats and scuba diving are widely available. There is no shortage of things to do away from the beach, popular family days out include Tenerife Zoo, the Eagle Park and the Aqua Park, which are all located nearby.

A wide variety of bars and restaurants occupy the pedestrianised promenade, with many quality restaurants offering an array of cuisines.

The night-life here can get quite busy, especially in the summer season, there are plenty of fun pubs, bars and a few night clubs, although for a wider choice Playa de las Americas is just a few minutes away and taxi's are readily available and reasonably priced.

For those wanting to grab a bargain there is a street market held every Sunday near the Hotel Arona Gran.

Transfer time by taxi from Renia Sofia Airport is approx 15 minutes.


Insider's View

Tenerife Insider I like Los Cristianos a lot; it still retains its fishing village feel

the Monkey Park 5 minutes outside of town which the children really love. Especially as your little scamps get to feed the park's little scamps

Some wicked souls refer to Los Cristianos as 'Los Crustyanos' because of the influx of more 'mature' visitors to the town during winter months, but that's a bit harsh.

I like Los Cristianos a lot; it still retains its fishing village feel. An early morning stroll along the harbour sees grizzled fishermen beside their bright fishing boats separating out all sorts of odd looking sea creatures on the quay before they start sinking early vino tintos at the little harbour kiosks.

A couple of streets back from the beach the shops are less touristy and more aimed at the local population. There are some good clothes shops here and a Carolina Boix shoe shop which is always good for a bargain. And look out for the WWII pill box which looks really out of place.

The promenade has had a facelift recently in an attempt to keep up with its upwardly mobile neighbour Las Américas with whom it shares many visitors' favourite beach, Las Vistas. Personally, I prefer the town's main beach Playa Los Cristianos. It's less manicured and there's a lot more to nosey at; the comings and goings of the busy harbour, beach volleyball, sand sculptors and petanque tournaments (okay, they're not particularly interesting). The further along you go, the more secluded it becomes. One of my favourite watering holes is Mestizo which is perfect for a day time beer or early evening cocktail and they have fantastic coffee too.

If you want good tapas, I recommend you go to the San Telmo centre which has some excellent chic tapas bars and is the resort's after dark hot spot for the non-crusty age group.

And the must-sees? The Aguilas Jungle Park up the hill at Chayofa is good fun, but it's the Monkey Park 5 minutes outside of town which the children really love. Especially as your little scamps get to feed the park's little scamps. It's not expensive either.
