11 Jun Los Cristianos in Tenerife
It was once the old fishing village of Los Cristianos, and black and white photos testify to its original condition; today it offers itself a definitely different image, while retaining a certain old-fashioned charm, with its ancient buildings and its pedestrian areas such as the Calle General Franco and the Avenida de Suecia, which host shops and terraces bar in exorbitant numbers.
Los Cristianos, now one with Las Americas, with which it shares the definition of pearl of Tenerife, is the most known, popular and populated seaside resort of the island.
The large sandy beach of Las Vistas, the seaside resort of Los Cristianos, is surrounded by a beautiful and luxuriant promenade that, boasting several kilometers of natural beauty, has become a popular destination on which a myriad of villas and villas become unavailable. for renting and / or purchase as perennially and annually employed.
Today, the housing units of the island and of Los Cristianos in particular, have suffered a sharp increase in costs both for short and long term holiday rentals, as well as for sale and purchase values, due to the considerable interest that has spread over the Canary Islands in recent years. .
The area of Los Cristianos boasts a concentration of services sometimes monstrously similar to a city, because such and many are the proposals to the point of making the most prepared tourist lurk!
Today we would definitely like to “speak” more with the images than with the text but we are nevertheless forced to illustrate their characteristics verbally.
Its large and well-served port hosts the most important shipping companies for the connection between the islands, Naviera Armas and Fred Olsen Express, which provide for the sorting of passengers and goods to and from El Hierro and La Gomera and Santa Cruz de la Palma with daily connections.
Not far from the port, the San Telmo area hosts an almost uninterrupted theory of restaurants, gastrobar, pizzerias, ice cream parlors and bars that overlook the sea promenade of Playa de las Vistas.
Frequented in the evening, during the day it hosts a varied and colorful crowd of vacationers who pours on the sands of the beach, which, curiously, often hosts complex and huge sculptures, real works of art by “sand artists”.
Los Cristianos is also home to an exaggerated number of shopping centers, real conurbations of shops, designer boutiques and supermarkets where you can often find delicious relaxation areas, bars and taperias as well as equipped playgrounds for children.
The local bus service (guagua) has to be underlined positively and it covers the territory very well, connecting many neighboring towns as far as Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Un saluto da Los Cristianos!
