The Cliffs of Los Gigantes
Acantilados de Los Gigantes in Santiago del Teide
Looking for something special during the holidays? Sometimes it’s a beautiful luxury hotel, or a nice apartment with a sea view. Maybe a little finca (farmhouse) in the middle of the banana plantations. The magic of Tenerife is that it offers you a variety of choices – one of these is Los Gigantes.
I arrived on this island for health reasons, looking for a warm, dry and peaceful place. Here I found my Paradise. Just before I fall asleep, I can hear the waves kissing the shore. A little nest with a sea view, where to recover.
Here we can live without a car and travel around with public transport if necessary. Taxis are quite cheap for short trips. Los Gigantes offers you this possibility of shopping around, surrounded by bars and restaurants, in a village where people know each other and everyone is welcome – making you feel at home.
The beauty of this coast will take your breath away with its international community living in harmony together.
Come with us, every different kind of accommodations is available: for weekends, short term stay, long term stay or maybe even a forever home. It is the perfect place for retirement. Properties could be simple but well furnished or high luxury for unique expediencies. The weather is always beautiful, and exceptionally never windy, which is a rare gift in oceans islands.
We have a cosy beach right in front of the Los Gigantes cliffs. There, if you like, you can practice any kind of water activity. I love to rent a kayak or SUP near the beach at Jesús’ place, and reach the cliffs through the crystal water as I imagine to be surrounded by the ancient Guanches; the aboriginal inhabitants of the Canary Islands.
Furthermore, sail boats can be rented out for few hours – such as a day of fishing, a luxury romantic dinner, or special celebrations. If you are travelling with your little ones don’t miss out on the pirate boat ships. It will give you and your children a fantastic unique experience. Every kind of sea excursion here is available!
If you like speed Jet-skis, they can be rented here. However, please take care of the dolphins, whales and sea turtles. All the west coast of Tenerife is a unique marine park to be loved, protected and respected.
Are you in the mood for a good bite? Delicious tapas bars (such as T-ask), restaurants, tea houses, ices cream parlours, and pizzerias are in your comfortable reach. Moreover, shopping and supermarkets are open when your in need of stocking up as well.
Try a typical local cuisine. You can book a table at the mesmerising sea-view restaurants such as Casa Edu or Casa Pedro. Maybe a gin testing experience? Los Gigantes has that in its pocket as well!
Close your eyes, make a wish… we have it. Live music in the bars will accompany your evenings, under the oceans stars. Don’t be too late, if the day after you are playing tennis, golf or going for a trip to Masca right behind the cliffs.
‘Los Gigantes’, translates to ‘the Giants’ referring to the mountains rise from the ocean to a height of 500-800 metres.
