Description
This pleasant urban walk covers many of the landmarks and attractions of Los Cristianos, just edging into the upmarket eastern end of Playa de las Americas before returning along the wonderful beach promenade to the base of Montaña Guaza. Walkers should be aware that the walk is just over 10 km in length. At the mid-point on the walk, the otherwise smooth surface changes to rough and, at times, slippery conditions as we ascend and descend Montaña Chayofita, so please use appropriate footwear!

Los Cristianos is a popular tourist resort with a busy ferry and fishing port. For the first half of the 20th century it was a quiet fishing village. It is the older hub of the bigger “holiday city”, also comprising of Playa de Las Americas and Costa Adeje, and is an excellent base for exploring the whole island. It has two sandy beaches, a wide array of bars and restaurants, and is blessed by a year-round warm and sunny climate. In recent years, it has taken over some of the role of an administrative and cultural centre for the Arona municipality, including hosting the Courts of Justice and Cultural Centre for the council area.
