Enjoy a holiday to Costa del Silencio with

Costa del Silencio, translates as ‘the silent coast,’ and remains true to its name in many ways. Although not silent per se, this coastal town is situated away from the urban hubs of the island but it is still within a reachable distance of them. Originally a small village on the southern coast of Tenerife, it has grown into a popular tourist resort due to its proximity to attractive beaches, its agreeable climate and short transfer time to the Reina Sofia International Airport.

Discover the coast on your holiday to Costa del Silencio

As a purpose-built tourist resort, Costa del Silencio is ideal for those looking for tranquillity and opportunities to enjoy the surrounding scenery. Nearby Las Galletas, a mere 10-minute walk away, should be your first stop on a holiday to Costa del Silencio. Once a traditional Canarian fishing village, this small town now attracts many visitors. Although its pebbly beach isn’t great for sunbathing, the big Atlantic waves attract surfers and body boarders until dusk all year round. Those with young children may want to go to the neighbouring beaches of Playa de Las Americas or Costa Adeje, which are accessible by bus or taxi.

For daytime activities there’s plenty on offer whilst on your Costa del Silencio holiday. Soak up the warm rays whilst on a catamaran tour of the coast or try diving which is a popular activity on the island – it doesn’t matter if you are a novice or a pro, there are schools for all levels. If you’d prefer to stay on dry land then head to the shopping centres in the area or take the family to one of the water parks on the island. You can also explore the nearby hills and lowlands which are perfect for sporty types who love to hike or bike ride.

For evening unwinding, enjoy the many sea front bars and restaurants – there’s a mixture of traditional and international cuisine. Don’t forget to try the famous mojo sauce and papas arrugadas – potatoes cooked in salt until they go wrinkly. The promenade in Las Galletas is well known for its good fish restaurants. While the nightlife is laid back, the livelier resort of Los Cristianos and Playa de Las Americas are a stone’s throw away so those hungry for a party will not be disappointed.
