Los Cristianos is a popular resort on the Canary Island of Tenerife, with beautiful beaches and a stunning harbour. The pedestrian areas along the coast make the beach, restaurant and nightlife accessible to all and there are plenty of activities to get involved in both day and night, so it’s no wonder why Los Cristianos is such a thriving tourist destination.
Los Cristianos is a great resort as it has a fine amount of beautiful beaches all with soft, white sand and tranquil, turquoise waters. The sea is quite calm and appealing with shallow areas making paddling a priority when visiting.
Las Vistas beach is close to the harbour and makes for a nice day out if you fancy a change from Los Cristianos. Lifeguards patrol the lovely stretch of clean white sand, that gradually slopes into the cool water, which is great for families with small children. There are a lot of amenities on the promenade like small shops and a range of cafes and bars so spending a day here is relaxing.
History and culture
Los Cristianos is favoured for its flowery-decked harbour in the heart of the resort. The large resort was once an old working fishing village that has, over the years, expanded to keep up with the growing tourism in the surrounding areas. Fishing is still a part of the area’s ethos and groups can still take trips to the open water to fish, snorkel and spot the local sea life.
The feel good atmosphere doesn’t stop when the sun goes down; in fact, the resort turns up the volume and becomes much more energetic. Some of the bars are situated along the coast so you can sip on a drink with picturesque views of the resort lights twinkling on the dark sea.
The perfect bar for a pre-sunset cocktail is The Wild Side. Pop in for a delicious Mojito or Piña Colada and relax in the retro décor on the comfy loungers. The Wild Side also serves great food which you can enjoy whilst listening to an upbeat summer soundtrack. With plenty of other bars open until late, the only decision you’ll have to make is what order to visit them in.
