Los Gigantes - Tenerife

The remarkable Los Gigantes is a must-see destination on the west coast of Tenerife. Huge cliffs plunge into the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean from between 985 and 1,967 feet (300 and 600 metres). This awesome sight really is something to behold and is the main attraction to this coastal town, which is a popular spot for a day trip. Appreciate the varied colours and textures of these breathtaking looming cliffs that have given this resort its name — the giants.

The dramatic precipices can be seen from anywhere in this seaside town but a great way to explore their magnitude is to get up close. Take one of the many boat trips on offer from the sophisticated marina where you will also find a good selection of restaurants and bars offering lovely views over the turquoise waters as well as good food.

In addition, other places to sip and savour typical Canarian dishes and cool refreshing drinks are located next to the dark coloured sand beach of Playa de los Gigantes, which is a short stroll from the marina.
