Playa de Los Cristianos is one of the island’s oldest beaches. Not so long ago, it and its adjoining territory were reconstructed: sprinkled with fresh sand, equipped with a modern embankment. A feature of the beach is its location. It is adjacent to the port by its southern part. There are pros and cons in this. The plus is, that when you are on the Playa de Los Cristianos, you can look at fishing boats, ships and sightseeing ferries and have the opportunity to take a walk along the coast of Tenerife or to the neighboring islands. Another bonus of the beach is calm water. There are no raging waves, and you can safely swim to the buoys.

But the same water and transport can be called minuses of Playa de Los Crisnianos. Boats and ferries sometimes make noise, when you want silence. Dissecting the ocean surface, transport makes the water turbid. Near the shore you can see floating algae. Some tourists complain, that the water here sometimes smells of gasoline, although I did not feel anything like this, resting on this beach.

In all other respects Playa de Los Crisnianos differs little from other coastal territories. It is a comfortable beach for rest, on which a large number of people can rest, because the width of Los Cristianos is 80 m, and the length is more, than 300 m. You can get here from the seaside boulevard, passing along the wooden decks to the center of the beach. On the territory of Playa de Los Crisnianos you can see towers with lifeguards and rent sunbeds and umbrellas for the day. They cost 3 and 3 euros, respectively. If you want to save you money, you can spread own towel on the gray sand near the water. However, then it will have to be carefully shaken, because the sand in Tenerife is very small and sticky.
