Los Gigantes is an impressive place located on the western part of Tenerife. The resort is sheltered by gigantic cliffs, hence the name of the place. This is a quiet, romantic place that attracts those that want to be a bit away from the louder resorts further south. Cliffs above Los Gigantes are truly impressive. They are over 500 meters high and you can see their real beauty if you take a boat trip and watch them from the ocean.
The holiday resort has a very nice marina where you can find several good restaurants and bars. From there you can take some excursions and go whale watching or exploring other places nearby. Los Gigantes has a nice, spring-like climate. Average temperatures in January are around 19 C, while the hottest months of July, August and September offer pleasant 25 C.
Because the resort is under huge cliffs, Los Gigantes does not have many quality beaches. There is only one small beach called Playa Los Guios. It is very small in size stretching to about hundred meters, with just a few sun-lounges and shades, but it offers very pretty views on the ocean. The sand is black, unlike the golden beaches from other close resorts. The beach is also well protected from winds and waves. Waters here are shallow, which makes the beach good for the small children. You cannot find water sport activities on Playa Los Guios, but you can certainly find at the nearby harbor. There you can rent boats, jet-skis or kayaks.
Los Gigantes is a tiny, but charming resort ideal for calmer holidays. The town cannot stretch much because of the cliffs, so that is why it is not packed with plenty of hotels. Los Gigantes` marina with the surrounding square and church are the most attractive things in this place. From the marina, you can take part in some fishing trips or go watching dolphins and whales. There are over thirty of different species of dolphins and whales here, so taking such a trip is well worth it. Diving and fishing are the other two main activities to try here. Bellow the water surface you can find many interesting rock formations and beautiful fish species.
Although small resort, here you can still find many shops, bars and interesting restaurants. Los Gigantes does not offer a rich nightlife. There are some relaxing and quiet bars around the marina and in the center. There you can find some live music shows, stand-up comedians and other acts, but around midnight everything goes quiet. This is not a choice for those seeking a wild nightlife.
Los Gigantes mostly attracts British visitors and all the restaurants, bars and shops reflect that. You can find many different meals, specifically made to suit English visitors. However, you still have the option to taste local cuisine or fresh fish, if that is what you prefer.
In conclusion, Los Gigantes is a beautiful spot for those who want to enjoy amazing sunsets and a quiet vacation. It can also serve as a perfect base for exploring the wider area of Tenerife.
