Costa del Silencio is a small purpose-built resort town located on the South coast of Tenerife. It is just 12km to Playa de las Americas. The name for the town translated means “silent coast” due to it once being a miniscule fishing village home to only locals. It is now a livelier resort with a lot on offer for tourists but without the hustle and bustle.
Many excursions are available around the area of the resort including Whale and Dolphin watching cruises, hiking to Montana Amarilla a nature reserve, and all-day jeep tours around Mount Teide. Watersports such as diving, sailing, surfing and even a submarine safari are easy to find.
For a holiday not too exotic or culture packed, Costa del Silencio is the place for you. However, if you do stay here and fancy a bit of action, there are good transportation links so the livelier areas like Playa de las Americas and Costa Adeje are a bus ride away.
Tenerife is lucky enough to boast a near-year round climate, there is very little variation between Summer and Winter in temperature and indeed in rainfall. However the day-to-day weather around the island can vary depending on where you are in the island, for example at the summit of Mt.Teide it may be snowing whereas just an hour away on the beaches of Playa de Las Americas you can quite happily sunbathe! The coast of Tenerife boasts the most sunshine and least cloud than the rest of the island. The hottest months are July and August with an average temperature of 25C, the coolest months are December to February with an average temperature of 18C although it can reach up to 22C even in these months! The driest months are June to August with virtually no rainfall, the most rainfall falls from October to December with an average of 15mm a month.
