Placid Puerto de Santiago
Puerto de Santiago holidays will allow you to experience the charm and tranquillity of a traditional fishing village, while simultaneously embracing the area’s stunning natural landscapes. Sitting on the gorgeous west coast of Tenerife, this lovely little beach resort is as sedate as it is beautiful, providing visitors with a slow pace of holiday life. But with options to go gung-ho and tackle the dramatic landscapes and fruitful waters of the Canary Islands.
The beach here maybe small in size, but it is large in character and appeal. The sand and water will keep you relaxed or occupied, depending on what sort of holiday you’re after, while the neighbouring resort of Los Gigantes will give you another beach option if you fancy a change during your holidays in Puerto de Santiago.
