Las Galletas is
situated on the southern point of the
Spanish volcanic island of Tenerife, approx.
8 kilometres from the holiday resort,
The beaches in Las Galletas
Las Galletas has two beaches. The largest of
the two beaches is situated right west of
the town, where it is well protected by the
harbour. This beach has lava sand with a few
The other beach
is a relatively narrow stripe of coarse lava
sand and pebbles, which has a good location
in front of the charming sea front.
The large beach
has toilets, whereas there are showers at
both beaches. It is relatively easy to find
a parking space close to the beaches.
None of the beaches are particularly
child-friendly as there are many rocks and
pebbles along the waterline. At the big
beach, however, there is room to play in the
dark lava sand.
Las Galletas is a good starting point for
divers, which the many diving centres in the
town also indicate. Apart from that, there
are no water sports activities.
Along the sea front, there are several
restaurants with a good view of the ocean.
At the large beach, there is also a
restaurant and a beach bar.
The town of Las Galletas
Las Galletas has been a fishing village
since the beginning of time and takes great
pride in keeping it that way.
Therefore, there is also a fish market every
day where the fresh hauls are sold. Of
course, there are also several really good
sea food restaurants in the town.
There are no
large hotels in the town, but there are some
in the neighbouring town to the east, Costa
del Silencio. Here you'll e.g. find the
large holiday complex, Ten Bel.
