Los Cristianos is situated on the south coast of the Canary Island of Tenerife. Located in the municipality of Arona between the mountains of Chayofita and Guaza. Los Cristianos bay contains a ferry port.
Not a purpose built holiday resort town like it’s neighbour, Playa de las Américas, Los Cristianos has a history that pre-dates the tourist boom of the 1970s and 1980s when it was a quiet fishing village. Evidence of its humble origins can still be seen in the typical Canarian architecture of the older buildings.
Nowadays however, the town offers two golden sand beaches, a multitude of bars and restaurants and its year round sunny climate. There is a wealth of accommodation to suit all budgets, including hotels, self catering apartments and time-share resorts. There are also a wealth of excursions focused around the town’s busy port including dolphin and whale watching as well as game fishing trips and party cruises.
