LOS CRISTIANOS
A Stunning Tenerife All Inclusive
2
On the south coast of the majestic Tenerife, the
incomparable beauty of Los Cristianos is sprawled
by the bay of golden sand and azure waters. It is
one of the most popular destinations in all of
the Canaries and has the busiest port by
passenger traffic in Spain to prove it. With such
splendid weather all year round, breathtaking
beaches, picture-perfect volcanic mountains, and
endless fun activities for all ages, travelers
have infinite reasons to keep coming. This
island vacation mecca experienced tourism boom a
couple of decades ago and is still making a
splash. Even with its sudden success, development
never ceased and has paved the way for this
naturally gifted coastal town to become the
spectacular destination it is today. And with the
way things are going, its safe to say theres no
way to go but up, up, up for this old fishing
village turned world-class resort.

Humble Beginnings of Los Cristianos
Los Cristianos, although of a modest populace,
has been a bustling port since the 16th century.
At the turn of the 20th century, the once small
community blossomed, and the harbor thrived like
never before. Needless to say, the local economy
flourished, and the need for a larger port was
apparent. And so, in 1934, one that could
accommodate larger ships was constructed. By
1975, a new and bigger one was also built on the
same site. The coastal paradise owes its tourism
success to a Swedish man, Bengt Rylander or Don
Benito as called by the locals. In 1956, the
former writer and TV commentator came to Los
Cristianos hoping that the wonderfully warm
climate and fresh air would ease his ailments.
Eventually, he recovered, and word quickly
spread. By 1957, several friends who were also
suffering from illnesses joined him. Although
Los Cristianos started as a resort for ailing and
recovering Swedes in the late 1950s, it took a
big leap into the tourism business the next
decade, and a growing number of travelers from
other Europeans nations found their way to its
sandy shores. What truly turned things around for
the fairly young seaside resort was the
inauguration of the new international airport,
Reina Sofía, in the autumn of 1978. By the end of
its first year, a million passengers had landed
on its runway, a large number of which headed to
the promising Los Cristianos.

By the Shore
Most resorts offer one beautiful beach and an
endless promise of fun. In Los Cristianos, they
make sure they are ahead of the game with two
magnificent golden sand beaches and one with
fabulous volcanic black sand where people can
lounge and do enjoyable activities. Theres
really not a good enough reason why travelers
should settle for less. In this old fishing
village turned top-notch tourist center, they
dont have to. Although naturally beautiful,
enhancements made on Playa de Los Cristianos and
Playa de Las Vistas gave them their superstar
status. With overlaid imported fine golden sand
from the Sahara, a harbor and man-made
breakwaters to keep the seawater calm, the two
Los Cristianos beaches got a makeover that made
them a premier holiday destination. Sublime
seashores that meet clear cerulean waters and
majestic mountains just behind a village of old
charm, it really cant get any better. Playa de
Las Vistas has an enormous stunning fountain near
the center of the shore that gushes sea water for
an even more dramatic look. With a length of 850
meters and width of 127 meters, it has a wider
shoreline compared to its next-door neighbor. Not
to be outdone, the Playa de Los Cristianos has a
length of 975 meters and a width of 40 meters
which makes it longer than the prior. Travelers
always play favorites, but with two adjoining
sandy spectacles, they really dont have to. For
visitors craving for a bit of adventure and a
secluded spot where they can unwind while
appreciating exquisite views, a fascinating
nameless black volcanic sand beach accessible
only by foot via a quick walk past the palatial
Arona Gran Hotel comes highly recommended.
Although a bit challenging, the 30-minute walk up
the cliffs of Montaña Guaza is very well worth
it. Risk-taking explorers will not be
disappointed with the extraordinary scenery that
awaits them. Despite its nondescript status, its
a hidden gem that will surely satisfy even the
hardest-to-please wandering souls.

Beyond the Beach
No matter how beautiful a place is, if theres
nothing to do, people will eventually get bored
and lose interest. But that is not possible when
in Los Cristianos. Aside from lounging and
playing volleyball on the two pastel daffodil
sand beaches, a host of activities is also
available in the dazzling waters. Families will
enjoy pedalo boating, kayaking, or dolphin and
whale watching, while groups of friends can go on
fishing trips and party cruises. Thrill-seekers
will get their hearts pumping while windsurfing,
jet skiing, sailing and riding banana boats. 
Discover the underwater paradise by going on deep
sea safari trips in glass bottom boats and diving
excursions. While in Los Cristianos, travelers
can maximize their vacation time by going on
pleasure cruises to the neighboring islands of El
Hierro, La Gomera, and La Palma. Parents can also
send their children to a resident sailing school
for a holiday well spent. If they want to
experience Canary Islands style entertainment
programs, the town also organizes those in the
summer.

Scenic Saunters
The longest barrier-free promenade in Europe
stretches from Las Vistas Beach to Playa de Las
Américas, and its one that travelers should
never miss. During daytime, a beautiful panorama
of golden sand meeting the expansive blue sea
stares back at people. Meanwhile, ferries come
and go in plain view of guests sauntering by the
esplanade. By night, the lights shine the
brightest in a plethora of restaurants, bars, and
cafés that offer both international and Canarian
dishes. Promenading is one of the best activities
tourists can do when in Los Cristianos, and its
free too.
On Dry Land
There is more to this town than just magnificent
beaches. This once fishing village has a charming
square by the harbor, captivating streets with
establishments in original architecture, lively
shopping scene, a variety of restaurants, and a
busy nightlife. Vacationers will never run out of
things to do in Los Cristianos. In the evening,
restaurants, tapas, nightclubs, pubs, and discos
come alive. People usually head to restaurants
first to satisfy their palates to prepare for the
long night ahead. After a sumptuous dinner, booze
and partying begin. For tourists who prefer a
more easygoing after-dinner activity, there are
plenty of waterfront bars with subtle live music
they can go to. They can also stroll along the
promenade and watch the stars while listening to
the soothing sound of the sea waves galloping to
the shores.

How to Get There and Go Around
The public transport system is an excellent way
to go around the island as it is fast, cheap and
reliable. Titsa Bus, the official bus company of
Tenerife, is also one of the best in
Europe. From the capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife,
travelers take either bus line 110 or 111 to
reach Los Cristianos. 110 is an express bus with
direct service to Costa Adeje, and Los Cristianos
is one of its few stops. It departs every 30
minutes from 655 to 2025 and takes about an
hour. Bus line 111, on the contrary, has more
stops, which includes the South Airport, so this
is recommended for those coming from the airport.
It leaves every 30 minutes from 530 to
2130. Tourists can also hire a car or hail a
taxi. Either way, they must go through TF1
Motorway from the capital to Los Cristianos. In
the town itself, although taxis are readily
available, most tourists travel by foot as most
places are easily accessible, and a lot of
walkways are wheelchair friendly.

Family Hotels
Perhaps the most excellent feature of the
Paradise Park Fun Lifestyle Hotel is its rooftop
terrace where the panoramic views of Playa de Los
Cristianos and Mount Teide can be seen and
appreciated. The property is also loaded with
terrific amenities such as its five swimming
pools, 4 hot tubs, sauna, fitness center, and
Turkish bath that make every stay so relaxing.
Although just a 13-minute walk away from the
beach, and they even provide free shuttle service
to Playa de Las Vistas and the town center,
guests never have to leave the hotel to
experience paradise vacation.

Apartments
The Cristianos Beach complex is just a minute
walk away from Playa de Los Cristianos. And
because of its close proximity to the beach,
their apartments and penthouse boast an
exceptional view of the promenade, the beautiful
bay, and the harbor. Bike and car hire are also
available on the property for those who want to
wander around the town. But with a seascape as
impressive as the one just outside its doorsteps,
guests never really need to go far.
Pet Friendly
For tourists traveling with their furry friends,
Apartment Las Vistas is the perfect place. The
property is just a minute walk away from Playa de
Las Vistas and, therefore, offers a superb view
of the beach. Playa de Los Cristianos is also
pretty close, and the best restaurants in Los
Cristianos are in the same block. Pets are
allowed with extra cost, and each apartment has a
fully equipped kitchen and other room amenities
for a truly comfortable stay. A home away from
home is exactly what it is.

The Art of Gastronomy
Fine Dining
Casa Tagoro Restaurant makes art on a plate. All
the dishes look so exquisite that diners cant
help but stare in awe before taking a bite. And
that first bite is always explosive, they feel
like fireworks went off on their palates. Such is
expected from a Michelin Star venue. Never leave
Los Cristianos without trying at least a few of
their best-sellers like watermelon soup, French
goat cheese with mushrooms and red pepper,
asparagus risotto, foie gras, duck breast,
langostino, and Sunday pork paired with vintage
wine. Before ending the amazing food experience,
taste their chocolate mousse, creme brûlée, or
chocolate pudding for dessert. A contented smile
on everyones faces after a meal is guaranteed.
Mid-Range
Arguably the most famous restaurant in Los
Cristianos, Olivers With a Twist Restaurant
serves mostly European dishes with a twist (as
their name suggests). And because its fully
booked all the time, its common for customers to
patiently wait for a callback if there was a
cancellation or they just book months in advance.
Anything from their menu is heavenly, but their
most popular ones are langoustines, sea bass,
turkey pie, Thai fish cakes, braised beef, haggis
stuffed chicken, pork belly, Indian spiced cod
fillet, spicy meatballs, and fillet steak. For
dessert, try banoffee pie, tiramisu, or
profiteroles. For a five-star dining experience,
do not miss this place or at least just keep
trying.
11
One of the tourist favorites, the Yim Siam Thai
Food Restaurant is often described as the best
Thai restaurants outside Asia, and its
definitely living up to its reputation. Their
most popular dishes are papaya salad, king
prawns, red tofu curry, pad thai, chicken satay,
fruity fried rice with pineapple, duck in red
sauce, green chicken curry, and spring rolls.
Everything from their menu is cooked just right
and delicately presented, definitely a 10/10
restaurant.
Easy on the Pocket
The very simple Taylors Lounge Restaurant is
considered the best sports bar in Los Cristianos
and has a growing loyal fan base to prove it. No
complicated foods or hard to pronounce names,
just dishes cooked right and plates always go
back empty. Their best-sellers are fish and
chips, BBQ ribs, all their sandwiches, special
chicken, Sunday roasts, chili, and nachos. There
are 12 big screens so everyone can watch football
from anywhere, drinks keep coming, and the food
is always served hot. Definitely the go-to sports
bar in town.

The harbor in Playa Los Cristianos and
breakwaters in Playa de Las Vistas protect the
bays against rough sea waves so even the little
kids can enjoy the tranquil waters. Adventurers

is hard to decide which one to try first. Marine
life enthusiasts fall in love with the abundance
and colorfulness of the underwater world.
Naturists enjoy the Canary Islands sun in the
secluded black volcanic sand beach. Handicapped
travelers feel valued with the many walkways that

exploration. Los Cristianos is the prime example
of how tourism should be done. Travelers get to
