Costa del Silencio (Costa del Silencio, Spanish "Beach of Silence".) - The so-called three-kilometer stretch of coast in the south of Tenerife, between the airport and the popular resort of Las Americas. Includes Ten Bel tourist village with the adjacent residential area and the town of Las Galletas. The place is quiet and peaceful, no entertainment, no beach normal, no cultural life too. But deep sleep is guaranteed. Probably a good choice for the budget and long-term lease in the kit with the car, while the majority of the "short-term" and configured on a traditional vacation travelers Costa del Silencio discouraged already by its very name. In general - the amateur. If you are going to Tenerife for the first time - it is better to consider other resorts. In order to avoid disappointment. Las Galletas - a typical low-rise Canarian town with a small marina, a pedestrian promenade with restaurants and a narrow strip of gravel and sandy beach. The beach itself is a natural, not wide, but quite long, 580 m long and 30 m wide. In some places it is covered with black fine sand, sometimes gravel, sometimes a mixture of sand and pebbles. The coastline here and built a boat dock securely protect the beach from the waves. Provincially cute and cozy. Fishing boats in the port reminded of that once in pre touristic era of the ocean was the main breadwinner of the natives. And it feeds still: here a mini-market you can buy fresh catch and interesting dive sites attract to the town of lovers scuba dive. On the beach, diving is developed - here bring their customers even diving centers of neighboring regions. It is believed that there is the most calm and clear waters, many deep underwater caves and unusually picturesque volcanic bottom. In Las Galletas, in addition to seven thousand local residents, permanently inhabited by tourists mostly of retirement age, removing private apartments. As in many of these villages, there are many excellent fish restaurants. On Sundays, here goes a small fair, the fish market is open daily. Keep in mind that finding a house in Las Galletas is not easy: the main proposals to place tourists are from neighboring village of Costa del Silencio. Buses 112.115, 467, 470, 473 and 484 to stop «Playa Las Galletas» Village Ten Bel just east of Las Galletas began to be erected on a rocky shore in the early 70s as a promising Belgian developer . Its name comes from the word "Tenerife" and "Belgium." But promising plans were not destined to be realized, and Ten Bel went down in history as a complex of several quite unpretentious and inexpensive apart Hotels. Later they began to attach them living residences, and Ten Bel turned into a sort of bedroom suburb of Las Americas. If the neighboring resorts is dominated by the British and the Germans, the Ten Bel historically a lot of French and, of course, Belgium. The village is built up pretty tight, but in the streets of recovery does not happen often. A large part of the apartment is privately owned and is used either as a primary (all day at work, in the evening - in front of the TV), or only as a summer dwelling. Classic sleeping area. Infrastructure in Ten Bel weak, sandy small beach very tiny and we can say that is not it at all, but there is a large swimming pool with sea water. To join the civilization go to the nearby Las Galletas. Best apart hotel in these parts - Marino Tenerife. Las Galletas and Ten Bel located 11 km from the southern airport, but there is no direct bus. Take a taxi. From the North to the airport (75 km) by bus can be reached with a connection in Santa Cruz where Route 115 goes to the resort.
