Costa del Silencio Tenerife Review


Costa del Silencio, which means the silent coast, is situated on the tip of south Tenerife. Costa del Silencio is only about 5 miles from Reina Sofia Airport and is under the flight path on the approach to the airport, so is subject to some aircraft noise.

However this not really noticeable as the airport is only busy on Tuesdays and Fridays, so the noise is not constant and the airport is not as busy as a main international airport. But if the thought of aircraft noise is a no goer, then avoid Costa del Silencio and any of the resorts in this area.

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

Costa del Silencio Beaches

Costa del Silencio lacks a beach to speak of, there are a couple of small beaches a short walk away at Las Galletas the largest one being Playa Las Galletas which is a black volcanic shingle beach located within the Marina. This beach is protected from the Atlantic swell by the marina defence barrier also protecting a small number of fishing boats and private motor cruisers berthed there.

There is one other tiny unprotected beach where local surfers and body boarders congregate in the evenings to ride the Atlantic waves . The coast line of Costa del Silencio is very rugged and rocky with no other beaches close by, the nearest are in the larger resorts 15km away by car or bus.
