Costa del Silencio Tenerife Review

Costa del Silencio, Tenerife

Costa del Silencio, meaning the silent coast, is a small modern resort situated on the tip of Tenerife's south coast built mostly of residential houses, apartments and hotels. This part of Tenerife enjoys a lot of sunshine all year round. Compared to the larger resorts on the south coast of Tenerife it is relatively quiet here.

The small fishing village of Las Galletas is a short walk away with excellent restaurants on the pedestrian promenade.

Costa del Silencio is under the flight path on the approach to the airport 2 miles away so there is some aircraft noise, but this not too noticeable as the airport is only busy on Tuesdays and Friday.

Most of the holiday accommodation in Costa del Silencio is appartment based with a handful of hotels.

Costa del Silencio Beaches

Costa del Silencio is not a beach resort, but there are a couple of small beaches a short walk away at Las Galletas. Playa Las Galletas, a black volcanic shingle beach, is the largest and is protected from the Atlantic swell by a sea wall also protecting a small number of fishing boats and private motor cruisers.

Local surfers and bodyboarders meet to ride the Atlantic waves in the evenings at a tiny unprotected beach. With a very rugged and rocky coastline, the nearest beaches to Costa del Silencio are in the larger resorts of Playa de las Americas, Los Cristianos and Costa Adeje 15km away.
