About Costa del Silencio
Costa del Silencio is located in the South of Tenerife. It´s name meaning the ´silent coast´ in Spanish is perfectly named and ideal for tourist to come and relax and unwind in the sun. Although there are not that many things to do in Costa del Silencio itself, you are in close proximity to its neighbouring resort towns, Las Galletas & Golf del Sur.
Costa del Silencio is only about 5 miles from Reina Sofia Airport and offers great public transport to get all over the south of Tenerife.
Things to do in Costa del Silencio and surrounding areas
The closest harbour to Costa del Silencio is in the next town of Las Galletas, just a 10 – 15 minute walk away. There are many boats in the marina, the most popular being the Mustcat Catamaran.
Mustcat Catamaran is one of the most popular and our favourite catamaran trip in Tenerife! This family friendly trip offers 3 or 4.5 hour excursions daily. You will be taken out to see the beautiful pilot whales and dolphins and then stop for a swim with snorkelling equipment provided. Lunch and beverages are also included on the excursion.
If you would prefer a different type of boat, there are many boat trip excursions that offer transfers to and from Costa del Silencio. You can contact us through live chat to find out which trips are available.

Jet Ski Safaris
Take a trip on a jet ski safari from Las Galletas harbour (Marina del Sur) to the Palm Mar sea caves! Experience an adrenaline packed afternoon driving fast behind a speedboat. Taking out groups of 6 jet skis, you will hug the coastline on a 1 or 2 hour safari with the possibility of seeing dolphins and sea-turtles along the way. You must remember to observe these from a safe distance, not to stress out these beautiful marine animals. Sightings are not guaranteed as these are wild animals, but when you see them, it is really something special.
A large amount of tourism in Costa del Silencio is due to the expansion of Golf del Sur. Many visitors stay in Costa del Silencio for the close proximity to the nearby golf courses. Tenerife´s largest golf course is situated just a 15-20 minute drive away as well as some small courses in Amarilla Golf. This is an ideal holiday destination if you are a keen golfer.
Many locals and tourist will come to Costa del Silencio in the early evenings to catch the waves. The Atlantic Ocean brings large waves to the coast making perfect conditions for surfing and body boarding.
Many dive companies operate from Costa del Silencio, all offering local transfers from the hotels to the dive sites. Tenerife is excellent for diving whether you are certified or a beginner. For beginners, you can do try dives from the beach to depths of around 5 metres. For experienced divers you have the choice of diving with turtles, giant stingrays or even shipwrecks!
Most excursions offer transfers to and from Costa del Silencio so you will not run out of things to do. Due to it being a quieter town you will find tour shops a little more expensive that in busier towns like Playa de las Americas . This is due to there being not much competition, however excursions can be booked cheaper online and tickets can be shown on a smart phone.
