Los Cristianos
Touristic Centers in the South of Tenerife

Los Cristianos is one of the major tourist centers located in the south of the island of Tenerife. The town (or pueblo as called in Spain) is located in the municipality of Arona.

In contrast to other famous tourist spots in the South of Tenerife, its origins lie in a humble fishing village. In spite of that, it has become a first-class tourist city, which has nothing to envy to any other place with these features, but still retains a small fishing activity, which is reflected in the fresh fish market installed every morning in the docks.

Like the other towns and tourist attractions in the area, the average temperature throughout the year is about a 25 ° C and with many sunny days.

Los Cristianos is one of the three most important tourist resorts in the south of Tenerife, along with Playa de Las Americas and Costa Adeje, and where you will find a wide range of hotels, tourist attractions and entertainment. The ocean waters in this area are excellent to bathe all year long, the beaches are very clean and the services provided outstanding - so all you need to spend pleasant days there. As opposed as the north of Tenerife, the water in this area is a bit heavy to drink, so always better to drink bottled water.
