The coast between Playa de las Americas (Playas de Troya) and the harbour of Los Cristianos has several good golden sand beaches, like Las Caletillas and El Camisón, along the stretch of coast along the back of the apartment complexes of Parque Santiago III and the Sir Anthony Hotel.

Beyond the Camisón point is Playa de las Vistas, which has been refurbished with sand from the sea bed, making it one of the best and longest beaches on the island. On all these beaches, you can hire sun beds, pedal boats and wet bikes. There are also many bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood of Playa de las Vistas.

There is a tourist office in the area, in Avda. del Litoral, next to the City Center shopping centre.

Los Cristianos is practically part of Playa de las Americas. It has a broad beach of golden sand opposite the harbour from which the ferries leave for La Gomera and El Hierro. Fishing is still fairly important to the harbour and the town.

There are many trips that leave from the harbour, both leisure trips and fishing excursions. There is a colony of pilot whales that live off this coast.

There are many bars and restaurants near the beach and a pedestrian precinct takes you up to the town centre. A coastal pedestrian promenade takes you to the nearby Guaza mountain.
