Los Cristianos is a popular tourist resort located in the south of Tenerife. Many British holidaymakers enjoy cheap Los Cristianos holidays to experience its lovely weather and child-friendly sandy beaches.
The town has many spectacular views, with the harbour and ocean on one side and the glorious Mount Guaza, a volcanic peak, on the other. The town has evolved with tourism and it welcomes thousands of visitors to its doors each year.
Los Cristianos enjoys warm, sunny weather all year round, making it a perfect holiday destination. It is located in the south of the island, where there is a sub-tropical climate. Temperatures during the summer months peak in August and September, when they average around 27°C. When combined with the area’s minimum of 10 hours of sunshine a day, this makes for a great day out at the beach.
Winter weather does not contrast as greatly as it does in other parts of the island. Temperatures stay in the high teens and low twenties during the day, with the sunshine making regular appearances.
For many people searching for cheap Los Cristianos holidays, the beach is one of their main priorities. The main beach in this resort is Playa de Los Cristianos, which is located next to the harbour. Here, tourists will find a number of facilities, including a beach volleyball court and showers. It is a child-friendly beach, as its waters are shallow and it has a play area for those who don’t wish to splash about.
Water sports such as jet skiing and wind surfing can be enjoyed in Los Cristianos, while many tourists book a ride on the banana boats as a great way to have fun and cool off at the same time. As the waters are so clear in this part of Tenerife, many scuba divers have found the island’s coral reefs to be a popular spot for undersea exploration.
The town has a history steeped in fishing, with the harbour being the starting point for many large angling excursions. The town still attracts fishers who can find numerous species not too far into the sea, including yellowfin tuna, marlin and even hammerhead sharks.
International cuisine is popular in this area, with many restaurants offering something different, from Mongolian to Argentinian and every other cuisine imaginable. If it is a local Spanish taste you are after, then Sal Negra will serve up some traditional Spanish tapas that use locally caught seafood.
The nightlife in Los Cristianos is vibrant, and there are many different bars and clubs that welcome tourists with great offers on drinks. Casablanca is one of the town’s favourite clubs and attracts partygoers who will dance until dawn. If that isn’t what you’re looking for, bars such as Balu Family Bar and Claddagh Irish Bar offer a more relaxed atmosphere.
