Colourful fishing boats bob on the waters of a charming little harbour in a cosy village called Los Abrigos nestled on Tenerife’s south coast. A far cry from the neon lights and party atmosphere’s of major tourist hang outs like Los Cristianos and Playa de las Amércas, this is an example of real Tenerife. A hidden gem that many holidaymakers are yet to explore, we want to point you in the right direction of where to go, which doesn’t just include the most popular resorts on the island. If you want something a bit different and possibly a little more discerning... check it out.
A little off-the-beaten track but only a short walk from Golf del Sur
, Los Abrigos has got a lot going for it. A paradise for seafood and fish lovers, lots of lovely restaurants line the pretty harbour and are the perfect place to sample local dishes. They are among the best fish restaurants in Tenerife! There’s nothing quite like sipping and savouring as you watch the sun disappear behind the horizon to give you that warm holiday feeling. And it’s not just the mix of fresh crab, lobster, oysters, mussels, seam bream etc, the restaurants serve a good mix of Canarian cuisine, prime cuts of meat, tapas and of course paella.
Wherever your Tenerife accommodation
is, you’ll be impressed with this slice of authentic island life. Los Abrigos has its own volcanic beach, a nice little cove, a traditional Canarian plaza with a cute little church and a few cafés and shops. And Tuesday night is Los Abrigos market night
. Sample the goods on offer at Tenerife’s only evening market which starts at 6pm. Many holidaymakers like to visit Los Abrigos on this day to have a look out for a bargain or original gift before sampling one of the harbour restaurants or indeed several others elsewhere in the village.
