Before you search for cheap holidays to Los Gigantes with TravelSupermarket, read all about this lovely coastal resort in Tenerife…
Los Gigantes is located on the dramatic western coastline of Tenerife. Millions of years of history show on the face of “The Giants” (English for “Los Gigantes”) – the stunning mountainsides that teeter over the Atlantic Ocean to the north of this handsome harbour resort. The cliffs do more than provide a stunning backdrop for the town; they also provide some shelter from the famous winds that can make holidays in the Canary Islands quite a blustery affair.
An attractive harbour, great weather and low-key nightlife… Los Gigantes holidays could be perfect for those who prefer evenings dining under the stars instead of dancing in bars.
While the small, black-sand beach of Los Gigantes doesn’t grace many postcards sent from the island, pool complexes - or lidos - around the resort (such as El Laguillo) beckon visitors into warm, clear waters where they can swim, splash or just soak up the sun.
Some of the larger hotels in Los Gigantes feature swimming pools of their own, while smaller budget hotels often offer guests free passes to the resort’s lidos. Chic adults-only hotels and family-friendly apartments are just two of the accommodation types on offer in Los Gigantes, a resort that appeals to both couples and families. While self-catering and bed-and-breakfast stays are popular during package holidays to Los Gigantes, there are also hotels that offer great deals on the complete package; all-inclusive Los Gigantes hotels represent excellent value for money and an easy way to keep hold of the purse strings during your break.
