DEREKWALKER's City Tips

  • For travelling around you can purchase a bus pass to use the local transport, which is cheap & easy to use. Alternatively, you can hire a car in the area you are staying in locally, or from the airport. Again, very good value for money.

    A lovely quiet area, without the hustle & bustle of Las Americas & Los Cristianos. Plenty of nice restaurants. The harbour area has boat trips, jet skis or speedboats, with a small beach nearby. There is a large public swimming pool, with loungers & a restaurant. Also some nice hotels in Gigantes & the surrounding area.

    The food is brilliant. There is entertainment provided a couple of times a week. They also have a swimming pool for visitors, crazy golf, & if you want something more sporty, there is a tennis club. There are 3 courts, & regular competitions you can join in with a number of other holidaymakers, who come back regularly every year.
