Make a holiday apartment in Los Gigantes your home away from home

Perfect for guests who want spectacular natural scenery and plenty of relaxation, holiday villas in Los Gigantes are on Tenerife’s quiet west coast. Here there’s low-key tourism and some breathtaking sights that include cliffs that reach heights of half a kilometre. Play golf, unwind at spas, visit natural beaches and enjoy day trips to Tenerife’s top attractions and sights.

In a part of the island where the landscape is so dramatic, many holiday apartments in Los Gigantes command incredible views of the coast and its cliffs, or the low-lying mountains inland. Allowing guests to make the most of the sun without having to travel are private pools, while interiors are fitted with the kind of appliances and facilities that will make a self-catering holiday a real joy, with internet access and satellite TV offered by many rentals here.

Things to do

-Beaches: Los Gigantes has one beach—a black sandy bay between the marina and the rocks. It is about 200 metres long, and as the main beach in the area is complemented by excellent facilities and services. Not far away in the Santiago del Teide is Barranco Seco, a stunning natural beach, 600 metres in length with calm, transparent waters. To be closer to this lovely beach, take a look at HomeAway’s list of holiday rentals in Santiago del Teide.

-Local sights: Los Gigantes takes its name from the giant cliffs that make up a great deal of the local coastline. Unmissable are the Acantilados de Los Gigantes, huge basalt vertical walls that have to be seen to be believed. Standing at heights of up to 500 metres they are one of Tenerife’s most spectacular natural attractions.

-Golf: At Los Gigantes visitors will be a simple drive from a variety of golf courses. On the west coast these courses take advantage of the dramatic terrain to provide memorable experiences. Abama Golf for instance has one hole 315 metres above sea-level, with striking views out to La Gomera. Buenavista Golf to the North is on the edge of the Macizo de Teno, and sits beneath tall cliffs.

-Other activities: Just north of Los Gigantes the landscape becomes incredibly craggy. This is the volcanic Teno mountain range, which is an unforgettable place for walks, not least because of the rich birdlife that the range supports. Nature-spotting is also available by water—this side of Tenerife is on several whale migration routes, and there are local companies offering cruises to catch this unforgettable sight.

-Day trips: Los Gigantes is neatly positioned on western Tenerife, providing access to both the north and south of the island. For guests who want to explore historic towns, the north boasts gorgeous old settlements like Garachico and Icod de los Vinos. For all the fun and action of modern resorts head for Costa Adeje and Playa de las Americas, where there are lovely beaches and world-class attractions like the spectacular Siam Park. For guests who would like to be nearer the action of these resorts, HomeAway has a selection of holiday accommodation in Callao Salvaje.

Weather in Los Gigantes

One of the many things that sets Tenerife apart from Mediterranean destinations is the sub-tropical climate. This a result of the Canary Islands’ location, not far from the coast of Morocco. On Tenerife temperatures are consistently warm throughout the year. There are really only two seasons: winters bring moderate warmth with highs of 20?C or so and occasional rainfall; guests heading for Los Gigantes apartments in summer can expect daily temperatures to rise to around 27?C.

Travel to Los Gigantes

For holidaymakers travelling to Los Gigantes villas from the UK, the airport to use will be Tenerife South (TFS). This destination is served by a range of charter and budget airlines all year round. By car it will take about 40 minutes to make the trip up Tenerife’s west coast from the airport, using first the TF-1 highway and then the smaller TF-47. Given the relatively remote location of Los Gigantes use of car is recommended.

Absolutely every detail is thought of and the apartment is equipped with everything you need. Great restaurants within walking distance. Spent a day on San Juan beach, a must do. Oasis and the Lido also well worth a visit. Thank you so much.

We have absolutely no complaints. Even though our arrival was delayed by more than 24 hours (due to Monarch going bust) and our arriving at the apartment after midnight Leoncio was there waiting for us with a big smile. We immediately relaxed. Apartment spotless with everything you need. Plenty of towels and fresh bed linen if you need to change beds at all. Opens vis small covered balcony onto large terrace with pool and superb views. As the sun comes up behind the cliffs terrace not in full sun until about 11am which was great as it deters early pool people so no pool noise in the morning. Saying that pool noise pretty non existent all we heard from in apartment a couple of times for brief periods was people talking.Still plenty of time for sunbathing pool closes 8pm although some individuals had brief swims after this.We had a couple of cloudy days but temperatures still 33 degrees even 22:00 at night. Welcome pack and large bottles of water in apartment on our arrival and a lovely letter from Leoncio and his wife giving us useful info. Los Gigantes is a lovely area, very hilly so not for the infirm, steep but not long walk from harbour up to apartment we are in our 50’s and did not find it a problem. Take binoculars as spectacular view from terrace over the harbour and sea, one day we saw dolphins this way. We also went on two boat trips from harbour and both times saw plenty of dolphins and pilot whales, the morning trips are best for this. Good point to travel from for volcano/ Teide Park if you have a car. Make sure you reserve cable car ticket in advance on their website and they will then text you if it’s not running saving you a wasted journey.We hired our car from Cicar ( Canary Island cars) and highly recommend them, reserve online and pay cash. No deposits, no credit cards, Great. Had 2 excellent restaurant visits in Los Gigantes , Charlie’s Bistro (rated highly on trip advisor) you must book in advance at least 5 to 7 days before to get a table, the other was Karl and Vals also highly rated on trip advisor we booked 2 days before with no problem but again don’t just turn up you may be lucky but I wouldn’t take the chance. We had no problem with parking just park on street outside apartment. Can’t wait to visit again .
