The Costa del Silencio is a purpose built resort on Tenerife’s south coast, just 12km from the infamous Playa de las Americas. Although the name conjures images of a peaceful stretch of the Tenerife coastline, Costa del Silencio is actually a bustling little resort set just inland from the coast.

Although Costa del Silencio does not have a beach itself, you can walk to the beautiful Las Galletas Beach very easily from accommodation in Costa del Silencio. Here, the warm waters and soft sands make a day at the beach a genuine delight. Las Galletas is one of the finest diving spots in Tenerife too, and every year, thousands of divers take diving holidays to Costa del Silencio for this very reason.
