Puerto de Santiago Holidays

This attractive fishing village lies at the base of Los Gigantes cliffs, and while it may be small it offers plenty for visitors to do. A Puerto de Santiago holiday is perfectly suited to older couples, but families will find plenty to enjoy as well. It’s where black sandy beaches meet placid waters that are great for paddling, swimming, and diving.

It’s where you can enjoy whale-watching and waterskiing, and take a trip to La Gomera with its plummeting gorges, towering mountains, and magical forests. It’s also where you can relax and unwind during the day, and then enjoy a charming evening out at one of the nearby seafront bars.

Family – The attractive fishing village of Puerto de Santiago is a blissful holiday resort for any family looking for great weather, peace and quiet, along with plenty of fun things to do. There are beaches with smooth black sands close by, where you and the clan can choose between spending the day on a sun lounger or trying the watersports. Daytrips to Mount Teide are perfect if you and your little ones relish nature and the great outdoors. Not only can you stare in awe at the world’s 3rd largest volcano, but you’ll also love the area’s rugged beauty and exotic sub-tropical rainforests.

Couples – A Puerto de Santiago holiday offers seclusion, relaxation, and plenty of privacy. While it may be particularly well-suited to older couples, any pair looking for a laidback holiday may have found their perfect resort in Puerto de Santiago. Fans of seafood will fall in love with the local restaurants, which often specialise in serving up delightful freshly caught fish and shelled bites in romantic seafront surroundings. In the evening, you can pull up a comfy pew with your significant other and enjoy a night spent in a seafront pub or music venue.

Nightlife – This isn’t the resort to visit if you are looking for a party-packed week spent in all-night dance clubs – instead, it’s the place to go for beachfront bars and live music venues standing beside some of the best coastal views in Europe. Start your night in one of the village’s sedate restaurants before discovering how the nearby nightlife buzzes in a relaxed, easy-going way. If you fancy a night or two spent in a more upbeat environment and dancing to DJ sets, neighbouring resort Los Gigantes has a wider range of bars and nightclubs.

Activities – Nearby Los Gigantes is the place to go for watersports while a day trip to Mount Teide gives you the chance for some sensational hiking. Alternatively, a safari in an electric car lets you discover some of the lesser-visited corners of Tenerife, while a scuba dive will reveal stunning marine life and exciting volcanic rock formations throughout a magnificent underwater experience. If you move over to Los Gigantes just a few minutes’ walk away, you can also try quad biking or jetskiing, sea fishing and kayaking.

Culture – The Fisherman’s Museum (Museo del Pescador) in Puerto de Santiago showcases art from local creatives which is dedicated to – you guessed it – the area’s maritime history. Here you’ll see Tenerife’s fishing heritage celebrated through sculptures, paintings, and lovely photographs of local seafarers and their trade. You’ll also find authentic Canaries food to sample as well as the chance to mingle with locals if you fancy it, to give you a true taste of the area.

Annual events – Like any Tenerife holiday resort, Puerto de Santiago becomes popular in February during the famous Tenerife carnival when visitors can enjoy the island-wide celebrations. However, there is also a week-long fiesta usually held in July or August called the Puerto de Santiago Fiesta, which features performing dance troupes, fireworks displays, children’s shows, and al fresco film screenings.

Getting around – Puerto de Santiago is a small resort, so getting around isn’t a problem by foot – however, if anyone in your group has limited mobility you should bear in mind that it’s quite hilly. The local buses or “guaguas” make moving between resorts nice and easy, and there is the option to hire a car if you want more ease with your travelling or to seek out some of Tenerife’s lesser known towns.

Restaurant Casa Pepe – You can enjoy Mediterranean and local cuisine, excellent steaks, plus tasty vegetarian and vegan options.

Tas-K – Nearby in Los Gigantes, this eclectic tapas bar serves excellent food with great value. Drop by for friendly, attentive staff and tasty food for a good price.

Cappucino Maria – This seafront café is perfect for an afternoon coffee or a casual lunch. The burgers come recommended and so does the tapas.

Pancho – If you enjoy seafood, Pancho is a delicious restaurant to visit during your stay. The restaurant looks out over Playa de la Arena, and the atmospheric terrace is beautifully lit at night.

El Rincon de Juan Carlos – Less than a mile away, this Michelin-star restaurant serves up inventive contemporary Spanish food. Each dish looks like a work of art and tastes like a dream.

The Blue Flag beach in Puerto Santiago is rather small, but there are several worth visiting within walking distance or a short drive.

Playa de la Arena – Just 0.1 miles away, this beach has soft black sand, a pleasant promenade, and several shops and bars close by.

Playa la Jaquita – 2 miles away and popular with locals, this beach is clean and has crystal-clear waters. While slightly rocky, it is a lovely, relaxing place to catch some rays

Beach Los Guios – This unspoilt beach is around a mile away, and while it is small it is also calm and quite beautiful, with a great view of the town of Los Gigantes.
