Los Gigantes Map Tenerife There are few more awesome sights anywhere in the world than the towering cliffs of Los Gigantes, which soar vertically from the sea to a height of over 1,800ft.

In the Los Gigantes Town you will find some great pubs, restaurants, cafes and resorts.

There is also a wide choice of diving excursions and watersports like sailing. It is worth pointing out that you may take sailing lessons in a sailing club which is based there.

The Cliffs of Los Gigantes

Los Gigantes is where the giants stand very tall!

Next to the marina and at the base of the "Acantilados de los Gigantes" (cliffs of the giants) is a small black sand beach, Playa de los Guios, which is safe for children but rarely busy.

A bigger 'Blue Flag' beach is close by at Playa la Arena just south of Los Gigantes.

Los Gigantes is a quiet and relaxing place. Most of the recent development of the town has been restricted to low-rise buildings, with the exception of one multi-storey hotel.

Along with its neighbours Puerto de Santiago, Playa la Arena and higher also Tamaimo, the town forms part of the municipality of Santiago del Teide.


Making a boat trip in Los Gigantes

You can choose from different boat tours. The coast offers excellent diving, sailing and fishing conditions. Some boats arrive in the port coming from Masca excursions. Also there are a number of very expensive yachts moored here.

Whale and dolphin trips are run from the harbour and there are also excursions to the base of the giant cliffs for a closer inspection. There it is possible to appreciate the sheer magnitude of the rock face that towers above you.

It's easy to understand why the first inhabitants of the islands, the Guanches, from their vantage point at the top, regarded the cliffs as the end of the world!

Water sports enthusiasts are also well catered for and the town is an important diving centre.
