Costa del Silencio, or The Silent Coast, does not really live up to its name any more, not with the giant influx of tourists travelling in and out of the Tenerife Island tourist development located just east of Playa de las Americas, or with the opening of the Reina Sofia airport.
This quaint resort was built in the early 1960s as one of the area's first purpose built, year-round holiday destination, and to be fair, the resort has not changed much since its original conception. Costa del Silencio is not as exotic as a lot of the Spanish resorts out there, and is in as culturally packed as some of the Tenerife resorts out there. Which is not to talk down on the resort, just a temper expectations - think fish 'n' chips and packed karaoke bars.
For those staying in Costa del Silencio, there are plenty of bars and restaurants scattered around the resort so that it is never too difficult to find where your next meal is going to come from. There are also few supermarkets for you can pick up a few essentials just in case you did not feel like going out for every one of your meals.
If you take a short trip north of the resort you'll find an area completely dedicated to sports and fitness, making it one of the resorts more popular destinations. There are plenty of tennis courts to get some exercise and run around in the sun on, as well as a bowling club that also houses a bar and restaurant which is perfect for undoing all of the progress that you put in on the tennis courts. This section of the resort is also surrounded by outdoor workout equipment that is completely free to use, so why not work up a sweat in the hot Spanish sun.
Combining the world of sport and also attractions is one of Costa de Silencio's monuments entitled Bathers Fountain. This water feature is that shines stone fountain that is in the shape of a shame that that has a few life-size men and women up to the shoulders and water, all dressed up and swimming caps hats and swimming goggles.
However, when it comes to water, the monument is about as close as Costa de Silencio comes because it does not have its own beach. Sure, land meets sea at the resort, but it does so in a jagged, rocky embrace, not your typical golden sand Spanish beach. Though, the nearest beach is only a short walk away in Las Galletas. And this beach more than makes up for you having to walk to it with its incredible beauty. It is important to note that this beach is a very popular with tourists and locals alike, so it gets pretty packed on weekends and summer evenings, so if you are looking to have an extended beach visit it is probably best to get up early and hit the road, which ends up working out just fine for you because the beach is a fantastic place to spend the entire day was small fishing boats dotting the sea, and a small selection of fantastic restaurants serving fresh seafood nearby.
