Los Silos Holidays

Travel Agent's View

Travel Agents View Silos an ideal base for exploring the surrounding resorts

Popular activities include fishing, scuba diving and surfing

Located on the north west coast, Los Silos lies at the bottom of the Teno Mountains. A quiet resort which is suited to older couples and those seeking a relaxing holiday. Not only is Los Silos an ideal base for exploring the surrounding resorts, there is also plenty to do here. Places worth a visit include the 16th Century Church of Nuestra Senora de La Luz, the Black Caves and Monte del Agua.

Within the resort there are 3 beaches, Agua Dulce Beach, Charco de la Arana Beach and El Gomero Beach, which are usually fairly quiet. Popular activities include fishing, scuba diving and surfing.

In the town there are several bars and restaurants, the night-life is nothing compared to the lively southern resorts but you can still get a lovely meal at reasonable prices.

Los Rodeos Airport is approx 55 km from the resort.

Tenerife Insider Los Silos is one of Tenerife's hidden gems as far as I'm concerned

Los Silos gives you a two-centre holiday in one; coastal resort combined with traditional village life

Los Silos is one of Tenerife's hidden gems as far as I'm concerned. The streets in the centre of the village are too narrow for the big tour buses so there are very few day trippers and it feels like you've just discovered it. The plaza is my base for people watching, accompanied by some croquettes and Russian salad from the little kiosk under the bandstand. Over the road, the Convento de San Sebastian has some interactive tourist information in English and nice toilets in the courtyard. Pop into the Town Hall beside the Plaza and up to the first floor to see The Martyrdom of San Sebastian, it's an ugly thing if you ask me but it's one of Tenerife's most priceless paintings.

If like me, you're a tapas fan, you'll love Tasca La Escuela on Calle Estrella; the former village school is now a quaint little tasca full of character and delicious jamon Serrano. Another compulsory stop-off point for me is the farmer's market where they grow much of Tenerife's organic produce; follow the signs from behind the Convent.

The coast is a ten minute stroll from the village and although there's not much of a beach, there's a great swimming pool complex with loads of sun terraces and a good restaurant. There's also a gym run by a former Mr Universe for those who like muscles with their tans, and the only nightclub for miles which gets busy at weekends. The sculpture on the headland is a real whale skeleton; over 20 tonnes of it.

My advice? Los Silos gives you a two-centre holiday in one; coastal resort combined with traditional village life, but it won't set the pulse racing and you might feel isolated on non-sunbathing days. Hire a car and explore the area; you're well placed for Garachico, Buenavista, Icod and Puerto de la Cruz.
