To the south of the Canary Island of Tenerife, you'll discover the resort of Los Cristianos. With its winning formula of a gently shelving beach, smart harbour and bustling old town, a holiday in Los Cristianos hits the spot with couples, families and solo travellers alike. Less lively than its neighbour Playa de las Americas, Los Cristianos still offers an array of shops, bars and restaurants. Because it's located in the south of Tenerife, Los Cristianos enjoys great weather virtually all year round – making it a good choice for summer and winter sun holidays. With a relaxed atmosphere and a good choice of self catering apartments and hotels, it's easy to see why holidays in Los Cristianos are so popular.
Holidays in Los Cristianos are packed with lots to see and do. Take a boat trip from the harbour at Los Cristianos, try diving or take a deep sea fishing excursion. There are plenty of golf courses in the area and many hotels have good sports facilities on site. Go shopping in the weekly market, or visit the local water park. Further afield, visit Loro Parque and Siam Park, two theme parks with animals. Don't miss the cable car up Mount Teide, the highest peak in Spain and a wonderful vantage point from which to view Tenerife's breathtaking lunar landscapes.
Nightlife in Los Cristianos is vibrant, with a good choice of Britishstyle pubs, cocktail and karaoke bars and clubs and discos. Young and lively crowds tend to stay in neighbouring Playa de las Americas, a short taxi ride away and the place to head for a more raucous night out.
Freshly caught seafood, Spanish specialities and international dishes can all be enjoyed al fresco in Los Cristianos, thanks to the enormous choice of cafs and restaurants. Don't miss the smaller, more traditional establishments in the older part of town. Plenty of restaurants serve up fast food and British dishes. For great value, choose an allinclusive hotel, where meals, snacks and selected drinks are included in the cost of your holiday.
