Playa de Las Vistas
A giant of a beach, Playa de las Vistas lies close to the ferry terminal at Los Cristianos on Tenerife’s southwest coast. Reaching from one end to the other of the neighbouring bay, it is divided into two parts by a short spit of land topped with a fountain and has a total length of around one kilometre.
Wide enough for several rows of spaciously positioned sun loungers, separated into several sections, Playa de las Vistas flies a Blue Flag for cleanliness. Watched over by lifeguards during popular periods, other facilities include changing rooms, while a good number of cafés, bars and restaurants line its landward side.
Its protected nature ensures the waves reaching land are normally of the gentlest kind, which is one reason why Playa de las Vistas is a favourite beach with families. Older children might want to mess about by the beach volleyball courts or set their parents’ nerves on edge by opting to try parasailing, or jet skiing or by jumping onto the back of a banana boat.
