Los Cristianos Santa Cruz de La Palma Ferry reviews

  • "Fred Olsen ferry los cristianos to santa cruz de la palma."

    the boat was very clean, coronavirus precautions were scrupulously observed and the staff were very helpful. My only criticism is that there was a lack of information and helpful signage at the ferry ports.

  • "Good trip"

    The overall trip was very nice, but the ship arrived almost one hour later than planned (without any information message), and if you store the luggage in the designated container, please be aware that all the cars will be unloaded before you get your luggage (extra 15 min waiting time). I think unloading the luggage first would be a great improvement for foot passengers. Otherwise, everything was fine, thanks for the trip!

    Thanks for a very enjoyable trip. All the staff were very efficient & professional, especially the colleague on the coffee/sandwich bar. I didnt get his name but he had dark hair & spectacles & said he hadnt worked long for Amras. He was fantastic.

  • "As Professional As Ever"

    Took the Fred Olsen Benchijigua Express from Los Cristianos to Santa Cruz de la Palma via San Sebastian de la Gomera. Very nice journey on a very clean vessel with a smartly turned out crew. The ship arrived on time at Los Cristianos but was prevented from docking by other port operations so she left about 20 minutes late. Not the crew's fault. The only down side to these journeys is the price for non-residents of the Canary Islands. Not good value for money in travelling tems. Nevertheless the service on board was of a very high standard and made the journey enjoyable

Los Cristianos Guide

The Spanish town and port of Los Cristianos is located on the Canary Island of Tenerife. The centre of the town is around Los Cristianos Bay but is gradually expanding inland. There are many older building that remain in the town which pre-date the increase in tourism which began in the late 20th century. The town has two beaches, made up of black volcanic sand, and a number of bars, restaurants and clubs that cater for the increase in visitor numbers. In the promenade area of the town, away from the beaches, there are many shops including boutiques, designer labels and many other places to pick up a bargain.

By following the promenade to the west, Los Cristianos gradually blends into Playa de las Americas which has a reputation of the being the party capital of Tenerife. This is because it has many nightclubs and bars but also has an excellent selection of shops. For a more sedate way to spend your time, take a ferry to the island of La Gomera where visitors will find rainforests waiting to be explored. The crossing to La Gomera takes around 70 minutes.

From the town's port, ferries can be taken to Valverde, San Sebastian de la Gomera and Santa Cruz de La Palma.
