Los Gigantes - The majestic cliffs of Tenerife
Los Gigantes is a small holiday resort in the western part of Tenerife. It lies in a scenic bay below a 500-800 metres high line of cliffs.
There are lots of dolphins and whales at this area, so there's a pretty high chance if you visit this calm and picturesque little town that you'll meet some of them. Los Gigantes has a beautiful and silent atmosphere. If you'd like to get away from the noise of the big cities and take some rest it's one of the most peaceful places to go.
If you'd like to see the enormous cliffs of Los Gigantes, you can get as close as you can with a boat. You'll be amazed of their vast beauty.
The harbour of Los Gigantes is the biggest along the western coast of Tenerife; this is where the boats and ships that take tourists to dolphin- and whale lookouts depart from. These animals are abundant here, so there is a high chance of seeing them here, in their natural habitat. Diving enthusiasts won’t be bored either: the sea is 20-24°C all year round, and the marine life is rich. There are many diving bases in the harbour, so amateurs and professionals alike can enjoy the sight of underwater life. The streets of the town are narrow, but atmospheric. In the centre of town there is a pedestrian street, which is where they hold the events like the annual carnival. The silence, the calm, and the beautiful surroundings make Los Gigantes a perfect place for a family holiday.
