In Los Cristianos, things to do are never far away. This thriving and popular beach town on the west coast of Tenerife is visited throughout the year thanks to its mild winters, pleasant spring, autumn seasons and hot summer months. A great place for you to kick back and relax, it has two white sandy beaches and a do-nothing vibe in (buckets and) spades. Or you might choose to keep yourself busy with an array of water sports and animal parks, all set amid a glorious, rugged landscape.

Couples, young families, groups of friends and retirees will all love finding things to do in Los Cristianos. So, get on board with this charming location on this ever-popular Spanish island.


Imported fine, white sand between the toes is what’s made Los Cristianos so popular among the many resorts on the island. Most people imagine black, grainy beaches when they think of this volcanic island, but here beaches are bleached and the waters clear, perfect for activities such as snorkelling, diving, jet-skiing and windsurfing. With Playa de las Vistas and Playa de Los Cristianos to choose from, relaxation in a stunning location is yours. Or, if you’d rather keep yourself busy, book on to one of the glass-bottomed boat tours that leave these shores daily for a truly breathtaking display of nature’s wonders at close quarters. Dolphin and whale watching charters can also be booked, and you’re sure to spot these majestic species, as a number of pods are known to live nearby.

Animal parks

In a resort popular with families, there are things to do in Los Cristianos around every corner, and a lot of these involve animals. Whether they’re in trees, underwater or flying through the air, this resort is handy for several animal parks you and your kids are sure to love. Watch family groups of primates live and play together at the famous Monkey Park. You’ll be amazed at how tame these monkeys are, approaching you confidently to take food from your hand. It’s a great privilege to be able to get so close, and it’s all within your reach in Los Cristianos.

If plants are your thing visit Cactus, a botanical garden where rare and exotic plant species, most notably cacti, are grown. And right next door is Amazonia, a tropical rainforest world where its inhabitants, from hummingbirds to parrots and beyond, wait to be fed, talked to and admired.
