Discover things to do in Los Cristianos, Tenerife, during your holidays. An endless number of fun activities accompanied by the best weather. We have it all.
Have you chosen our island as your holiday destination? First of all, congratulations, you’ve got it absolutely right and that’s why we welcome you by telling you about things to do in Los Cristianos, Tenerife. This wonderful resort town is located on the south coast of the island of Tenerife and is a popular destination for travellers of all nationalities looking for sun, beach and fun. But Los Cristianos is much more than that. If you are planning a holiday here, here are some of the activities and experiences you can enjoy during your stay.
Although it is obvious and easy to understand, we cannot fail to mention the beautiful beaches of this municipality, mostly urban beaches, equipped and accessible to all types of people. Furthermore, Los Cristianos and Las Américas often merge in the coastal area to offer you a number of beaches and accesses to the sea that are increasingly wide and close to each other.
- Los Cristianos beach is one of them, a wide beach almost 350 metres wide equipped with showers, sunbeds and restaurants, fashion and supermarkets just a few metres from where you place your towel.
- Los Tarajales beach is an urban and equipped beach, but with the authentic tradition of the local atmosphere. In recent years it has undergone a process of maintenance and reform that has revitalised this area and provided it with better infrastructures.
- Playa de los Callados is a less accessible place with no sand. It is located in a cove on the outskirts of the Guaza mountain and many people use it for nudism. It is a very different cove to the beaches mentioned above.
- Finally, and due to its proximity, we cannot fail to mention the beach of Las Américas, neighbouring beaches such as Camisón beach, Troya beach and many others that are in the area and are worth a visit.
When you leave the beach we recommend a pleasant walk along the promenade. If you like walking, here you can enjoy panoramic views of the sea and the boats moored in the harbour. In addition, there are many restaurants and bars offering a wide variety of gastronomic options.
Excursions departing from Los Cristianos
Being such a tourist area, there are hundreds of leisure activities on offer, so why not explore the coast of Tenerife on a boat? There are many companies offering boat trips from the port of Los Cristianos. You can enjoy breathtaking views of the Los Gigantes cliffs and the chance to see dolphins and whales in their natural habitat. In addition, they also offer water activities such as diving, surfing, paddle surfing and jet ski hire.
The excursion to Mount Teide from the south is another of the most popular activities. If you are a nature and adventure lover, we recommend a trip to Mount Teide, Spain’s highest peak. There are many companies that offer tours to climb Teide and enjoy the breathtaking view from the top. Furthermore, the Teide National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has unique flora and fauna. The ways are very diverse, from a night view to see the stars to driving your own quad bike up to the very slopes of the volcano.
Obviously, we can’t fail to mention Siam Park as a leisure alternative in the Los Cristianos area. The best water park in the world awaits you for a whole day of absolute fun with its slides, pools and attractions.
