The south of Tenerife has some of the best and consistent weather in the world. In winter it averages 22 - 26 degrees, and in the summer it averages 25 - 30 degrees. It hardly ever rains along the coastline, just for a few days throughout the whole year. Go higher up the mountain, even a kilometre or two and the weather gets markedly cooler in winter and hotter in summer. For the perfect temperate weather, stick to the coastline. The Paloma Beach complex is virtually front-line to the sea and has fantastic weather year round.
Tenerife is a beautiful volcanic island which is well worth exploring. It is the highest mountain in Spanish territory and is much of it is a national park. The north of the island is lush and green whilst the south dry and constantly warm. Many of the Canarians in the resorts speak very good English and they are a warm and very welcoming people.
As one of the main tourist towns in the south there is plenty to do in and around Los Cristianos. There are coach trips which take you up the mountain to the top of the volcano, to the capital Santa Cruz, or to the other islands, La Gomera, La Palma, Gran Canaria etc.
The boat trips to see the whales and dolphins are not to be missed. Or have a day out in La Gomera the nearest island just across the water which is an island of outstanding natural beauty.
You can also go diving, horse riding, para gliding, jet skiing, fishing, mountain walking, quad biking, golf on 5 beautiful courses nearby and much more. The 'Las Vistas' Beach in Los Cristianos is fantastic with a huge stretch of golden sand and safe bathing.
Siam Park, a huge brand new water park, has just opened 1 kilometre away and is a great day out for the children. Aqua Park, in Playa de Las Americas is another great day for the children, just 2 kilometres away.
Los Cristianos itself is a lovely old fishing town with scores of different restaurants and bars all reasonably priced and within easy reach of your apartment. Everywhere welcomes children of all ages .
Playa de La Americas the town nextdoor has great nightlife with clubs and bars open until dawn for the young or young-at-heart.
The complex is situated approx 200 yards from the seafront and is virtually front line. There is a small sand/rocky beach across the road from the complex. The main tourist beaches are located in Los Cristianos Harbour 10 mins walk. The larger Las Vistas beach is about 15 mins walk around the next bay beyond the harbour. Both have golden sandy beaches unlike many of the black volcanic beaches found elsewhere on the island. There are two supermarkets, two banks, a pharmacy and a wide variety of bars and restaurants within walking distance of the complex.
