Puerto de Santiago is on the west coast of the island retains some of its old charm as a small fishing village. It was a quiet resort with a village atmosphere but there is still lots to do. But has been development and the resort is now much larger. There is a beach just south of the resort, or head inland to the Masca Valley where you can admire the views over to La Gomera or wonder at the majestic peak of Mount Teide. Masca village is extremly picturesque and well worth a visit.

Puerto de Santiago’s neighbour – Los Gigantes is one of the main harbours for boat trips and offers a wider range of bars and restaurants. Nightlife here is laid back and low key. Fresh fish is always on the menu and people enjoy after dinner drinks in relaxed surroundings. Please note: steep roads in the area may make it unsuitable for the less mobile.

Los Gigantes, Puerto de Santiago and Playa de la Arena

The 3 areas of Los Gigantes, Puerto de Santiago  and Playa de la Arena almost merge into each other.  All 3 resorts are built on the hillside and are seperated by small ravines. This means to walk from one to the other you have to go inland i.e. uphill then downhill on the other side of the ravine. Looking at the description for the Hotel Barcel Santiago it appears that there may be a footpath joining the resorts near to the hotel.

Some UK tour operators class the 3 villages as Los Gigantes although they are in fact 3 seperate villages that have merge together.

These resorts are more suitable for holiday makers looking for a quieter holiday. They do not have the vibrant nightlife associated to Playa de las Americas 30 km to the south east.
