Los Cristianos is a great resort to visit if you are looking for fine beaches and tranquil turquoise waters on the sunny south coast of Tenerife. This fishing village has grown into a thriving place, popular with sun worshippers who spend hours soaking up the rays on the soft golden sand.
The sea is very calm and has a large shallow area, which makes it especially appealing for families with children. Sunbeds and sunshades fill the beach, bars and huts selling food and drinks are dotted all the way along the expanse of coast. In addition, there are several shower facilities.
A lovely promenade runs for hundreds of metres and is packed with shops, restaurants and cafés where you can sit for hours watching the world go by. This lively and vibrant area is almost always busy, with many people visiting the resort for a day trip before retreating back to a more tranquil and discerning destination elsewhere on the island.
