Los Cristianos Attractions

The beach at Los Cristianos is popular with both locals and tourists alike. The main town beach that opens on to the harbour is the location of a volleyball competition that usually takes place every Easter, when it also attracts a small number of sand sculptures. Of the two beaches, the newer Playa de las Vistas is slightly the larger, and if we are honest the water quality here is a little better too.

Perhaps more suited for a visit on a cloudy day are the Jardines de Atlantico situated just outside Los Cristianos. They are open daily from around 10:00 and offer a free bus from the resorts of Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas for the short trip to the nearby village of Buzanada.

Your trip around includes commentary by an English speaking guide and lasts around an hour. In amongst the banana plantations they have a model of Tenerife that explains the water system. At the end of your visit they have a small shop selling banana related products and a cafe. Contact details are:

The Tenerife Camel Park is open daily from around 10:00 to 17:00 with a free bus services from both Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas. Not perhaps so suitable for the infirm or those that easily suffer from sea sickness, the ride lasts for about 40 minutes around the fields that surround the farm.

The camel park has a small cafe selling the usual range of snacks and drinks. Contact details are:

If you only visit one place during your visit, make it the Las Aguilas Jungle Park. Set high in the hills behind the resort of Los Cristianos in 75,000 sq. metres of tropical gardens you will need a full day to see all the attractions.

The park has a number of demonstrations and shows running throughout the day, including parrot shows, penguin feeding time and a free flying eagle demonstration. You are warned not to eat during this show for very good reasons, but some will choose to ignore the advice, just don't sit next to them!
