Sophisticated Resort of Los Christianos

Aug 17, 2007
The Canary Islands are always one of the most popular destinations. Tenerife is the biggest island of the Canaries. Near the south western tip of Tenerife is one of the islands main coastal attractions, the resort of Playa de las Americas. Full of modern restaurants, bars and hotels, it is lively and fun, its large white sandy beach attracting people from all over the island. Next door is the more sophisticated resort of Los Christianos. Just around the coastline is the beautiful beach of El Medano, famed for its windsurfing.

It is an ideal all year round destination and for those seeking some winter sunshine. There is plenty to do or you can simply chill out on the beach. Explore the beauty of the landscape and tranquil villages that are just a bus ride away. A lovely place, the mountain covered in snow is a sight to behold.

Originally a small fishing village, Los Christianos is now an established resort boasting a wide sandy beach and a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants. With the centre of the resort closed to traffic, visitors can enjoy a leisurely stroll through the town, stopping for a refreshing drink at one of the many cafes.

The prices of the drinks at the main bars and the pool bars are a bit steep. The Shires Bar near the local supermarket and the Merry Monk Bar is very nice if you can get away from the children for the odd hour or so, they have fabulous cabaret acts on most nights.

Best Irish bar was the Irish Times mainly because the resident duo are great singers.

Best local supermarket is on top of a hill.

The taxis are cheap in the resort.

The touts are everywhere therefore dont take a trip with any of the numerous companies who have there leaflets lying around no matter how cheap they seem unless you want to sit through there sales pitch.

A visit to Loro park and Mount Teide are a cert and on the drive back from Mount Teide head for Los Gigantestheres some lovely restaurants there.

The islands sub tropical climate, tempered by the cool Trade Winds and warm Gulf Stream has earned it the title of The Island of Eternal Spring. It has warm, crystal clear waters, which at times reach twenty five degrees, the islands beaches and sea provide a year round playground for international visitors.
