Los Cristianos is a popular, bustling holiday resort on the south coast of Tenerife. It’s located close to the better-known town of Playa de las Americas, which is famous for its party scene and non-stop vibe – but unlike Playa de las Americas, Los Cristianos is not a purpose-built holiday resort. Believe it or not, this popular town was once a low-key fishing village, and amongst the modern hotels and sprawling apartment complexes, many of its original buildings and Canarian architecture remains today.
On the subject of accommodation, you’ll find a wide range of Los Cristianos hotels in Tenerife south. From top-notch hotels with pools and fantastic on-site facilities to family-friendly apartments with plenty of amenities within easy reach, there’s a superb choice of places to stay catering to many different tastes and budgets.
By day, Los Cristianos has plenty going on by the water’s edge. The beach is a gently shelving affair with row upon row of sunbeds, and there’s a sheltered bay too – perfect for little paddling feet. Or head to the harbour, which is fringed with cafes and bars – the perfect spot to kick back with a glass of something cool and refreshing as you watch the boats coming and going.
Los Cristianos has a lovely old town with many wonderful shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, and a regular market – so there’s always somewhere to pick up trinkets or souvenirs of your happy holiday. There’s plenty to do once the sun goes down too, and although it’s nowhere near as lively as its neighbour, Los Cristianos has its fair share of bars and pubs. And if you fancy something a little more upbeat, you can always grab a taxi and head to the neon lights of Playa de las Americas for a stamina-testing night out.
