Mingle with the locals in Puerto De Santiago
On a Puerto De Santiago holiday you’ll find many chances to taste some authentic Canarian food and mix with the local residents in this old fishing town. It’s a great holiday destination to experience some Canarian culture but in true Tenerife style, there are still a large amount of restaurants and bars to dine, drink and dance in, despite the smaller size of this resort. Oh, and if you’re looking to book a holiday to Puerto De Santiago in July, you’ll be lucky enough to see the annual fireworks display light up the winding streets.
This area of the west coast, Santiago Del Tiede, boasts some amazing natural scenery; you’ll discover dramatic cliffs and rolling hills as far as the eye can see. Because of this however, if you have smaller kiddies or limited mobility, this resort may not be the best choice! But for those wanting to stretch their legs and burn off some of that tapas from the night before, simply take a 20 minute stroll north over the cliffs and you’ll find yourselves in the pretty resort of Los Gigantes. This picturesque town is home to a gorgeous marina and a great selection of bars and restaurants, giving you plenty of chance to top up on a little more tapas before heading back. Another destination worth checking out is Playa Paraiso with its chilled out atmosphere and location conveniently falling close to the local hotspots for vibrant nightlife.
Although Puerto De Santiago doesn’t have the biggest of beaches, a mere few minutes’ walk down the coast will take you to Playa De La Arena. This resort is equally as tranquil, and boasts a Blue Flag awarded natural beach, where you can squeeze in a bit of sunbathing and maybe a little more tapas! If you’ve simply had too much food to face any more walking, the Transportes Interurbanos de Tenerife, run a great bus service between all three resorts, or you can just jump in a taxi!
