Things To Do In Los Gigantes In April
Los Gigantes is best known for its iconic cliffs which seem to burst out of the ocean and rise into the sky. Whilst you can admire the cliffs from the shore of the resort, the best way to see them is by signing up for a boat trip with Maritima Acantilados. Each boat trip begins at the harbour in Los Gigantes and sails past these cliffs from which you can take fantastic photos. Since this part of the sea is so popular with whales and dolphins, there's also a great chance you'll see some local marine life on your trip.
At the other end of the scale, Crab Island is one of the least well-known parts of the resort. Although it's not actually an island, this part of Tenerife is an exclusive area tucked in between Los Gigantes and Puerto Santiago. Here you'll find a large number of rock pools which provide hours of entertainment for children on the lookout for marine life and shells. If the sea is calm enough, some of the rock pools are even large enough to safely swim in, too.
