Los Gigantes is a quiet seaside village with a central square and church and a small sheltered beach. There are many restaurants, both in the village and just outside. Tennis and mini-golf can while away a morning as can various boat trips to view pods of dolphins and whales. Several golf courses are nearby for the enthusiast. Dominating the beach are beautiful sea cliffs, the ‘Giants’, reputedly the second highest in the world. Mount Teide – Spain’s highest mountain – is situated in the national park, about an hour’s drive to the east. The same distance away, but to the north, lies Puerto de la Cruz the island’s tourist capital, which houses Lorro Parque, a parrot conservation park with wonderful shows of dolphins, sea lions and a magnificent penguin house. Las Aguillas is similar but in the southern hills above Los Cristianos, 45 minutes away. There are two water parks close to Playa de Las Americas – Aqua Park at Costa Adeje and the nearby water kingdom, Siam Park.

Inter-Island travel: Why not travel to some of the other Islands? La Gomera, La Palma, El Hierro, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuertaventura are moderately close to Tenerife and most are accessible by ferry (car or on foot) from Los Cristianos. If you prefer to stay on the island, it is easy to hire a car or travel by local bus (Titsa) or you can go into a travel agent and book a day trip or just 1/2 a day. Of course, the Pirate ship is a delight for the children – I think it is the sails that do it! The adventurous traveller can book a boat trip to get up close to the whales and dolphins.
Things to do: Masca is nearby but ‘hidden’ in the mountains. It is an easy drive via Tamaimo or you can join a group and go by water and then climb the mountain. If you take a day off, it is fun to use the binoculars and search for whales and dolphins from the comfort of the garden – you may be lucky.
Golf: Golf: With a delightfully warm climate all year round, golfing is a must for the enthusiast. In the south Abama Golf (18 holes) and Golf Costa Adeje (where the Spanish Men’s Open took place in 2003) are roughly 20 mins away by car. Further south and nearer to the airport are the Amarillo Golf (18 holes) and Centro de Golf, Los Palos (9 holes). Also in the area are Golf Del Sur and the Campo Del Golf (Las Americas). In the north there are the Real Club de Golf at Tacaronte (Spain’s 2nd oldest golf course) and the Buenavista Club de Golf designed by Severiano Ballasteros. All have the most amazing views and you can enjoy the 19th in beautiful surroundings.
