If you are planning your Puerto de Santiago holidays, the following information may help by giving you an overview of the resort and the surrounding area,
The main focus of tourist interest north of Playa de las Americas is the expanding complex that includes Puerto de Santiago, Los Gigantes and Playa de la Arena. All three resorts are ideal for people seeking a genuinely peaceful and relaxed atmosphere.
The coastline along this western side of the island is famed for its small coves and awesome cliffs. Puerto de Santiago, a largely British enclave, is built around just such a cove, which once served as the harbour for Santiago del Teide. The resort is linked to Los Gigantes by a walkway around the cliffs.
Whatever else you do in Puerto de Santiago, don’t miss a boat trip to the breathtaking cliffs of Los Gigantes. Three times the height of the white cliffs of Dover, these black giants plunge sheer to the waterline, dwarfing passing pleasure boats. There’s a lovely small black-sand beach backed by huge cliffs in the old fishing port of Puerto de Santiago which is approached by one steep road. Lovely views from the top.
Visit the Camello Centre and dress up as a Bedouin and enjoy a camel safari across the hillsides from this camel farm in El Tanque. It makes a fun morning out for children and families. Camel caravans regularly depart and you can either stop for a mint tea in an authentic Arab tent or get your land legs back while sipping a cool drink at the nearby Bar Los Camellos!
