Puerto de Santiago - Tenerife - Canary Islands Hotels

Mini guide to Puerto de Santiago - Tenerife - Canary Islands


The quaint village of Puerto de Santiago lies in the province of Santiago del Teide, near Los Gigantes, on the island of Tenerife. The village is surrounded by small coves, steep hills and dramatic valleys, and it possesses breathtaking views across the cliffs.

Other than Puerto de Santiago's one beach, the main draws are around, rather than in, the resort itself. The nearby resort town of Los Gigantes possesses imposing cliffs of the same name, and an attractive marina. Puerto de Santiago is still a bustling fishing port, and making a trip to the docks in the morning to watch the fishermen unload the day's catch is an interesting local experience.

The resort hugs the rocky hillside which slopes down to the ocean, making it a difficult place to walk around. However, for hikers and those who love bracing walks, it is ideal. Its main thoroughfare links it with the towns of Los Gigantes and Playa de la Arena, and a 1.5kms walk along the cliff tops affords spectacular views of the ocean and coast as you make your way to Los Gigantes.

Due to the large number of local residents, the food choices here are a cut above many other neighbouring tourist towns. Nightlife here is quieter than other towns along the coast, and centres around the hotels and local bars tucked away in the narrow streets. Shopping is limited in Puerto de Santiago but nearby Los Gigantes possesses much more variety.

The major sites to visit in Santiago del Teide province are the rugged imposing cliffs of Los Gigantes (The Giants). The other major draws for the region are the beaches, particularly the black volcanic sand beach of Playa de la Arena, which means 'sandy beach'.

Tenerife is the only Canary Island with two airports. Los Rodeos Airport is situated in the north of the island near La Laguna, while Reina Sofia Airport is in the south near the Costa del Silencio, a few kilometres from Las Americas/Los Cristianos. There is a weekly ferry from the southern Spanish port of Cádiz, as well as regular inter-island ferries.
