The west coast of the most popular of the Canary Islands, Tenerife, is somewhat different from its southern and northern coasts. You will not see comfortable sandy beaches stretching for kilometers along the sea here – only rocky cliffs. However, it is the rocks that attract tourists here. And the most attractive town in this part of the island is Los Gigantes.
Here are the highest cliffs in all of Spain. At their eastern foot, about thirty kilometers from Playa de las Américas and Los Cristianos, there is a small resort town, which was named after the very rock – “The Rock of the Giants” (this is how the name Los Gigantes is translated from Spanish).
The beaches in Los Gigantes are quite peculiar – the unexpectedly black color of the sand attracts the eye … and at the same time thousands of tourists. By the way, it is believed that this volcanic sand has medicinal properties.
The peace and quiet that distinguish Los Gigantes has been appreciated by tourists from the UK, Germany and many other countries. People come here who are attracted by the combination of reasonable prices and respectable quiet rest. Young people are unlikely to like it here, except perhaps for those who do not like to have fun until the morning, because there is simply no such kind of entertainment here. Probably the only event that is celebrated quite noisily is the annual carnival, which takes place in the city in February. The local sports club has a swimming pool, mini golf course, tennis courts, and there is a large sports center nearby in the neighboring village of Puerto de Santiago. If you wish, you can go on ocean fishing.
Accommodation in Los Gigantes has a high potential for sales and rental.
Residential buildings and hotels are located here mainly on a mountain slope and almost all have a beautiful view of the ocean, the Giant Rocks and the neighboring islands. The South Airport and the bustling resorts of Las Americas and Los Cristianos are 40-50 minutes away.
