It has access for people with disabilities or reduced mobility, and all the essential services right on the beach: toilets, showers, loungers and sunshades, restaurants… Las Vistas is the perfect spot for adults and children to relax in peace or for doing water sports.

 

Las Vistas Promenade – connecting the cruise liner to the city

Around Las Vistas Beach stretches the promenade – a lively pedestrian area on two levels that you can get to via steps at different points along it. Little whitewashed houses that look like homes are really souvenir shops and catering and leisure establishments where you can find a souvenir or stop and have a drink or something to eat with sea views. You can skate or take a bike ride along the promenade, which connects the different beaches in the tourist area of Los Cristianos – a fun and different way to enjoy the seaside.

 

Shopping Centre Sprees – shopping at cruise speed

On the Avenida de Las Américas and near Las Vistas Beach, you can reach it on foot from the seafront promenade. Shopping fans will be able to found a wide range of clothes, accessory, perfume, technology and sports shops. Next door is the Safari Shopping Centre with the most prestigious international labels. It is one of the best options for finding a diversity of products and prices in one place in a short space of time, or just for taking a stroll around it.

 

Enjoying the surroundings and the gastronomy on the way back to the boat
