Welcome to Puerto Santiago

Puerto Santiago

Puerto Santiago is the central holiday resort of three separate ones, Los Gigantes, Playa Arena and Puerto Santiago, which have spread and essentially merged into each other on Tenerife's west coast, forming the area's largest tourist hub collectively known as Los Gigantes. The resort of Puerto Santiago was once a small fishing village, but typical of the Canary Islands, is now a popular holiday destination garnering rave reviews from most tourists and visitors. Puerto Santiago boasts a small but decent selection of bars, restaurants, shops and activities to suit the tourist palette. Puerto Santiago has managed to retain some of its traditional charm and offers visitors the chance to relax and enjoy a seaside break with a local Spanish flavour; although some visitors might take a while to get accustomed to the black sand beach.
