Los Cristianos, Playa de las Américas y Costa de Adeje

LOS CRISTIANOS

Los Cristianos, practically an extension of Playa de las Americas, has an extensive beach of golden sands, opposite the harbour, from where you can get a boat to La Gomera or El Hierro. The harbour is still a fairly important fishing harbour. There are many excursions that leave from the harbour, both in leisure craft and in fishing boats. There is a colony of pilot whales that lives off the coast.

The town has many bars and restaurants close to the beach; a pedestrian walk leads you up to the town, while another one follows the coast towards the nearby Guaza mountain.

These two holiday resorts are located along the Adeje and Arona coasts.
The borough of Adeje includes resorts like Playa del Duque, Fañabé, Torviscas and the original resort of Playa de las Americas. Works have been carried out along the coast to create new sandy beaches like Torviscas and Playa del Bobo.

Puerto Colón, a yacht marina and starting point for many sea bound leisure and fishing trips, is in the resort of San Eugenio.  

There is a lovely five-level terrace with gardens and a swimming pool close by, on the coast by the Jardin Tropical Hotel. The terrace covers 600 square metres and is 90 metres long. It is called Las Rocas, it belongs to the hotel and they charge an entrance fee. There is a comfortable restaurant on the terrace.  The next beach along is Playa del Bobo, where there is a windsurf and sailing school that rents out boards dinghies and catamarans.

The climate is dry and sunny throughout most of the year. Be careful and use cream to protect yourself against the sun. The boundary between the boroughs of Adeje and Arona is the Barranco del Rey ravine. There are several beaches of golden sands in this area, such as Las Cuevitas and the Troya beaches, very popular with their dry sunny climate.

The coast between Playa de las Americas (Playas de Troya) and Los Cristianos harbour also has some fine beaches of golden sands, such as Las Caletillas and El Camisón, on the coast opposite the Parque Santiago III apartments an the Sir Anthony Hotel.  After El Camisón point, you come to Las Vistas beach, a newly made beach about 2 kilometres long. You can rent sun beds, pedaloes and wet bikes on these beaches, and there are many bars and restaurants nearby.
