Los Cristianos is one of the most popular tourist centers in the south of Tenerife. In particular, this region has become known for its sandy beaches.

Get in[edit]

The town is best reached from the southern airport (Reina Sofia). Its only 15 minutes far away from Los Cristianos and is linked by an extensive bus network. From the northern airport the region can be reached via the TF-1 motorway, which also passes the capital Santa Cruz on the way to Los Cristianos. The port of Los Cristianos has daily connections with the islands La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro.

Get around[edit]

Those wishing to explore the island and who wish to see beautiful and important places have several possibilities to move on the island. The cheapest way is the public bus network, which is very well expanded and will take you almost anywhere. We recommend you to buy a so-called "Bono ticket". Its available at bus stops and saves you 40% on the fare price. Moreover, it offers you a 50% discount on admission to state museums. People who prefer to discover the island on their own, the car hire would be the most appropriate solution. You should obtain several offers and compare prices. After that, you have many options open to go to beautiful sights, pass beautiful panoramic roads and small villages and get to know the people.
