Welcome to Los Gigantes

Los Gigantes

Los Gigantes (The Giants) is aptly named after the Acantilados de los Gigantes; large, striking cliffs that surround this attractive holiday resort. The resort is set on the west coast of Tenerife and is essentially joined together with its neighbours, Playa la Arena and Puerto Santiago, to provide visitors with an exciting resort experience. A concerted effort has been made not to destroy the natural beauty of the town and as such there are none of the towering hotels common to other Spanish tourist resorts. The scenery is dominated by a rocky cliff which is 2,600 feet (800 metres) high in places.
