Destination guide

No man is an island—but you should escape to one!

Tucked away on the southern coast of the island of Tenerife, the largest of Spain's Canary Islands, Los Cristianos offers a breathtaking tropical landscape with white sand beaches. Nestled between 2 mountains and set along the Los Cristianos Bay, the town began as a quiet fishing village. Today, however, the popular beach resort bustles with activity, particularly the city center and its thriving nightlife. For those who prefer life at a slower pace, book a Los Cristianos vacation rental and use the time to sit back and unwind in the seemingly year-round sunshine.


Feel the sand between your toes and the wind in your hair

Your Los Cristianos vacation rental won't put you far from the town's sandy beaches, some of which feature beach volleyball and children's playgrounds. Thrill seekers will love the wide selection of area watersports, including surfing, kite surfing, and stand-up paddle boarding. Charter boats set sail for everything from dolphin- and whale-watching tours, to deep sea fishing excursions and party cruises. Bring the celebration back to land where late-night revelers dance to live music at Los Cristianos's lively bars. If you're in search of a more laid-back evening, take a walk in the moonlight along the waterfront promenade.


Sunshine and surf—when summer lasts all year

Like so many island retreats, Los Cristianos offers a pretty consistent climate, complete with warm temperatures and year-round sunshine. Summers are the warmest season but, even then, things stay comfortable as humidity is low and temperatures hover around the mid-80s. The town sees very little rain but if you need an umbrella it might be in December, the wettest month of the year. Daytime temperatures in the tepid winters average around 72 degrees, with lows measuring around 59. Spring and fall offer similar conditions, with daytime highs in the low 80s and high 70s.

Natural features

Searching high and low—beauty beyond the beach

Los Cristianos's beaches offer a diverse landscape, as the Atlantic's clear blue-green waters roll up on shorelines dotted with white sand, black sand, and rocky outcrops. The town is also sandwiched between the 2 small mountains of Chayofita and Guaza. But to see a truly mammoth beast, visit Mount Teide, a volcano whose peak reaches 12,000 feet. Just an hour away, the desolate, moon-like landscape is dotted with craggy rocks, petrified lava rocks, and deep craters. Visit in the winter to see the mountain's snow-capped peak, or climb to the summit to watch a colorful sunset.
