Destinations / Canaries / Tenerife / Los Cristianos
The little harbour town of Los Cristianos, once a quaint local fishing hamlet, is now a chic and attractive tourist resort on the scenic Canary Island of Tenerife.
Connected to more "playful" Playa de las Americas (only 3 km away) by a lovely promenade, it is like having a greedy grab at two resorts at the same time! Subjects to in Los Cristianos are more sedate and laid back in pace. Los Cristianos also has some of the best beaches on the whole south coast and the resort is a favourite Tenerife holiday spot..
Interestingly though, the main beach is man made, but is a swathe of gold sand where the sea is shallow and very safe for bathing. The resort area is quite sophisticated and there are really pretty pavement cafes and bars, just crying out for a spot of posing - in fact, people watching was possibly invented here.
The bustling harbour area and great assortment of shops, restaurants and bars keeps Los Cristianos holidays popular and appealing because there is plenty to do, but nightlife is relaxed and generally, the overall pace has moved to the slow lane, a bit like the resort of Costa Adeje.
There are frequent flights to Tenerife south airport from Ireland guarantee the ongoing popularity of all the Tenerife resorts.
