Beach
“La playa de Los Cristianos fue una de las primeras playas el sur de Tenerife que empezó a ponerse de moda en los años 60, cuando despegó el turismo en la isla. Esta pequeña playa es popular entre las familias, que vienen aquí para disfrutar de un día tranquilo en la playa. La playa de Los Cristianos es acogedora, hay pequeños barcos de pescadores en la orilla y se puede disfrutar de los mejores platos de pescado y marisco de la isla en los restaurantes que se encuentran frente a la playa.”

“El restaurante "Chillout" en la avenida marítima de los Cristianos esta muy bien en todos los sentidos con una carta para todos los gustos y unos postres caseros riquísimos. Si os apetece algo mas informal esta "La Pepa" al estilo mercado donde cada uno escoge y paga lo suyo y se va a sentar en grandes bancos en la terraza. Muy buen ambiente normalmente. Los Cristianos es el único pueblo costero que existía antes del boom turístico. Antiguamente un pueblito pesquero muy humilde. The "Chillout" restaurant on the promenade of Christians is very good in every way with a menu for all tastes and some delicious homemade desserts. If you fancy something more casual this "La Pepa" market style where everyone chooses and pays his own and will sit on large banks on the terrace. Very good atmosphere normally. Los Cristianos is the only coastal town that existed before the tourist boom. Formerly a humble fishing village.”
