Las Galletas Tenerife Review

Las Galletas on the south coast of Tenerife is a typical Canarian village with narrow streets and a picturesque harbour with small fishing boats. The seafront promenade is lined with restaurants and cafe bars where you can relax in the sun overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Las Galletas is very close to Costa del Silencio and only a short drive from Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas.

Las Galletas Nightlife

In the evenings the town comes to life when locals come out in the warm evenings for a walk along the promenade, or for a drink or dinner in one of the many excellent restaurants Las Galletas has to offer. There are plenty of speciality restaurants offering fresh fish caught by the local fishermen as well as other Canarian dishes.

The nightlife in Las Galletas would be considered low key and Spanish in style. It is a small village, so there are no wild nights to be had here, and no theme bars or night clubs etc. It is much quieter than the large resorts around Las Americas. So if you are after all-night partying this is not the place for you.
