Things to do in Los Cristianos 2015
The highlight of all Los Cristianos attractions has to be the gloriously sandy beach that has seen Los Cristianos become one of the most popular holiday destinations in south Tenerife. Playa de Los Cristianos is a long stretch of golden sand which also has the added appeal of being adjacent to the harbour, should you wish to take a cruise around the bays or head out further to one of the neighbouring islands such as La Gomera. Ideal for catching some rays while relaxing on the shore and perfect for enjoying the ample water sport opportunities for some fun in the sun, the beach of this fantastic resort is a must-visit.
Wine and Dine
Having been adapted for mass tourism, it comes as no surprise Tenerife offers a wide variety of foods from different cultures and countries, from traditional English food to Lebanese cuisine, there’s not much you can’t find in Los Cristianos. Unsurprisingly, fresh seafood is pretty common among the waterfront restaurants and cafes that line the promenade, but if you’re up to venturing a little further from the beach you’ll be ecstatic to find European, Asian and African style foods all within walking distance from the shores. Pubs and bars are equally prominent in the area, although they are still just as diverse with everything from Irish pubs to traditional tapas bars.
Action and Adventure
There are plenty of things to do in Los Cristianos and with humble beginnings as an old fishing village; you’ll find that a lot of the attractions and tours aren’t far from the beach or harbour. Luxury can be found upon the pleasure cruises that run frequently around the island, or for a more family oriented feel, glass bottom boats offer a window overlooking the coral and sea life below. However, if you’d prefer to get up close and personal you can always head off on a scuba diving excursion to truly explore the crystal clear waters you’ll undoubtedly come to love.
The great thing about Tenerife is that there’s plenty of scope to explore and discover the various areas and hidden gems that the island withholds, making for an exciting holiday that will keep the whole family entertained. Los Cristianos things to do will include sunbathing on the beach or joining in with the numerous activities the shoreline has to offer, but heading inland will give you a change of scenery, Monkey Park being a great place for the kids to check out some of the tropical wildlife that inhabits the island. Shining in the sun, the white church acts as a focal point for fiestas and concerts which provide a good dose of bright colours to the already vibrant greens, blues and gold of the beach and surrounding areas if you fancy spicing things up.
Recharge and Relax
With there being so many things to do in Los Cristianos, you’ll be happy to know that there are places to chill and recharge your batteries. Whether it’s with an ice cream in the shade, laying about in the tropical sun, or enjoying the luscious natural surroundings, you’ll find it easy to switch off from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. If you don’t mind taking a short trip over to Playa de las Americasyour efforts will be rewarded in the Mare Nostrum Spa, a world renowned beauty and health spa which offers innovative but very relaxing treatments, the algae body wrap being a particular highlight.
After experiencing one of the many treatments in Mare Nostrum Spa, you should probably check out the bustling nightlife while you are there. Although the list of Los Cristianos attractions includes numerous bars and pubs for you to enjoy a drink in, there isn’t quite the party atmosphere that you’ll find in this neighbouring resort of Playa de las Americas. Magic Lounge Bar and Tramps will get the heart racing and feet a-moving while playing some of the best club anthems around, while Soul Suite and Sax Bar introduce live acts into their domain for a more personal approach; either way, you’ll be able to throw some shapes and dance the night away.
