From the top of Mount Teide to the depths of the ocean
Los Cristianos holidays revolve around an old fishing village which still shows some of its traditional Canarian charm today. An excellent holiday choice for families and couples as the 18-30 crowd usually head for the party atmosphere of neighbouring Playa de Las Americas. Life in los Cristainos is very much beach based, either relaxing in the wonderful sunshine or trying out the many water sports on offer here. The bay is a hive of activity with windsurfers competing for space among the water skiers and banana boats while parasailers glide overhead.
The pedestrian promenade runs right along the beach and on past Playa de Las Americas to Costa Adeje, and is packed with shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Head to the old town, it's a little quieter here, and sit al fresco with a cappuccino or wine and watch the world go by. Relax by the marina as the small fishing boats mingle with multi-million pound yachts glistening in the sunshine. Here is where the glass bottomed boats will leave from to take you on a colourful excursion to see the underwater life of Los Cristianos, or take a whale watching trip or deep sea fishing adventure. Ferries will take you over to the intriguing island of La Gomera for a leisurely day out. Los Cristianos holidays must include a trip up Mount Teide, with cable cars helping you up the steepest part practically to the summit, once there though you will be treated to stunning rugged views of the huge crater and distant islands.
