The location of the resort will also give people the chance to explore some of the iconic natural beauty of the Canary Islands, whether through exploring the dramatic inland landscapes of Tenerife, or ferrying over to a neighbouring island to explore a variety of national parks. If you look for a beach break, an island-hopping adventure or a trip filled with outdoor pursuits, you’ll never run out of things to do on holidays to Los Cristianos.
For something a little more sedate on your Los Cristianos holidays, strolling around the harbour and marina will welcome you to some charming bars and alluring eateries, serving up cool drinks and traditional cuisine. Others will find enough joy in relaxing on the sand, with Playa de las Vistas arguably the most attractive strip of sand in the area, while the beaches of nearby Playa de las Americas will also serve beach bums well. A series of boat trip options can also provide a sedate atmosphere to your trip - some of the most exhilarating include dolphin and whale watching adventures.
A stay in Los Cristianos also gives holidaymakers the opportunity to hop on a ferry and explore some more of the Canary Islands, among them La Gomera. Holidays to La Gomera are home to some stunning natural scenery landscapes, with the crown jewel found in the form of the Garajonay National Park – a perfect place for nature lovers to trek around. The island is also home to some wonderful beaches, all of which see smaller crowds than those on Tenerife and Gran Canaria. When back at your resort, if the sun has set, head out into the bustling nightlife enjoyed in Los Cristianos after enjoying hearty seafood paella around the marina
