Los Cristianos Holidays

Welcome to the Tenerife resort of Los Cristianos!

Holidays in Los Cristianos

Situated on the southwest coastline of the Canary Island of Tenerife; the port town of Los Cristianos is the quieter next-door neighbour to Playa de las Americas and boasts a wide promenade that curves around the harbour and also a trio of beaches. The harbour has moorings for over 200 boats and is the starting point for ferry trips to the surrounding islands of La Gomera, El Hierro, and La Palma and also game fishing and whale and dolphin watching tours.

When is the best time to visit? Los Cristianos has a sub-tropical climate with year-round sunshine, hot summers, and very mild winters. Budget-conscious holidaymakers can fly here outside the peak holiday season to find it less crowded - March to May (excluding Easter) and October to November are the best times to visit Los Cristianos for keen prices. Christmas, New Year, and school holidays are always popular, so remember to book early for these key dates.

Where is the best place to stay? Discover a plethora of places to stay in Los Cristianos, whatever your budget; from small and friendly hotels and apartments to timeshare complexes and a variety of luxurious and facility-packed resorts throughout the resort. Whether you’re seeking bed and breakfast, self-catering, half-board, or all-inclusive; Hays Travel will find you the perfect accommodation to create your dream Los Cristianos holiday.

Los Cristianos, Las Vistas, and Camison Beaches are each a haven for sunbathers, sand-castle builders, and paddlers on long, sunny days; or up the tempo by riding across the waves by kayak, jet-ski, or pedalo. Hop on the ferry for a day trip to La Gomera or take a boat tour to go dolphin or whale watching and see these majestic creatures in their natural habitat. Thrill seekers can make a beeline for Siam Park’s Tower of Power and the Volanco and Singha rides, while the Wave Palace is ideal for family fun. Get up close to monkeys, lemurs, and crocodiles at Monkey Park. Golfers get to hit the verdant fairways of Golf Las Americas for a round of golf with friends.



Travel to the island’s capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife to visit the Museum of Fine Arts and Museum of Nature and Man and go shopping at the iconic Nuestra Señora de África market. Venture inland to Teide National Park to ride the Teleférico cable car over Mount Teide or embark on a stargazing tour after sunset. Take a stroll around the island’s well-preserved historic quarters including the colonial city of San Cristóbal de la Laguna and the Renaissance mansions in La Orotava’s Old Town. Witness the six mysterious 19th-century pyramids in Güímar. Head to Puerto de la Cruz to go open-air swimming at Lago Martianez, see Jardín Botánico’s 200-year-old fig tree, and meet Loro Parque’s animal life.

food and drink

Food & Drink

Los Cristianos’ restaurants, bars, and cafes offer something for everyone. Savour traditional fare like Papas Arrugadas, Sancocho Canaria, Conejo al Salmorejo, Queso a la Planca, Arroz a la Cubana, and Ropa Vieja Canaria – accompanied by a bottle of Dorada, Tropical, or Reina beer or a glass or two of local vino de la casa. You’ll also find a good mix of Indian, Italian, Mediterranean, and Chinese restaurants; together with fast-food options like burgers and even full English breakfasts and Sunday roasts. Locally-caught fish and seafood feature on many a must-try list especially with a sea view. Perhaps relax in a café with a Latte or Americano or maybe try the national drink - the unique Barraquito coffee cocktail.
