Los Cristianos is a popular holiday resort in the southern part of Tenerife. The resort has grown into one with the largest holiday resort in Tenerife, Playa de las Américas.
Las Vistas beach
The main beach in Los Cristianos is Playa de los Cristianos, but it is the neighbouring beach, Las Vistas, which is the more popular of the two.
Las Vistas is shaped as a half-circle and is almost one kilometre long. The nice beach has fine-grained, bright sand, which is imported from the desert of Sahara. The relatively shallow water is well protected, partly due to its location to the south and partly due to the breakwaters down the sides of the beach.
The beach offers all facilities, including sun lounges, sunshades, beach bars and toilets. Behind the beach, there is a wide sea front connecting all the beaches in Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos.
Las Vistas is very child-friendly with its fine, soft sand and shallow water.
Water sports activities
There is a wide variety of water sports activities at Las Vistas, such as banana boat, jet skis and parasailing.
The charming sea front has a fine selection of restaurants, cafés and bars.
Los Cristianos resort
For many years, Los Cristianos was a low-key fishing village, but during the past decades, it has transformed into one of the most popular holiday resorts in Tenerife.
Along with the neighbouring town, Playa de las Americas, it offers the best shopping facilities in the southern part of Tenerife, primarily in the nice, large shopping centres.
From the harbour in Los Cristianos, you can go on fishing trips, diving trips, boat trips with glass floor and ferries to the neighbouring island of La Gomera.
