Los Gigantes is a small but stunning seaside resort on west coast of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Dominating the seascape are the Acantilados de Los Gigantes, the thousand foot high cliffs – ‘The Giants” – after which the town is named.
Each year, in February, there is a spectacular carnival which parades through the village. For more information on Los Gigantes, the losgigantes.com website and forum is very useful.
