Los Cristianos Guide, Information and Photographs
Los Cristianos is a very popular resort in the South of Tenerife, Canary Islands , Spain. A quieter resort than it's next door bigger and more vibrant neighbour Playa de las Americas.
The resort is therefore very popular with families with young children, older couples and singles, and those not wanting a dance till dawn environment. There is a large number of brit's with there own holiday apartments in Los Cristianos such as the San Marino Complex.
Los Cristianos is situated in Southern Tenerife in a sheltered bay, and has the warmest and mildest climate all year long. It is next to its larger virtually merge together neighbour Playa de Las Americas, and unlike Playa de Las Americas, Los Cristianos is not a purpose built resort, but has developed from a small fishing village to an International tourist resort. Although the harbourstill has fishing boats you are likely to see more pleasure craft and ferries.
Because the town is based on a fishing village the centre has more charm and has made it a top tourist resort. The old town centre is the place to stock up on duty free goods and gifts, you will find plenty of shops by the port and along the sea front. The centre is surrounded by high rise apartments and hotels.
This resort is an ideal place for a family holiday, with its golden beaches and clear seas.
Once a quiet fishing village now a thriving international tourist resort.
People watching is a popular pastime as you sit at a pavement cafe, bar or restaurant. Those nearer the harbour can watch the going and going of the yachts
