Why Oasis Los Gigantes is the Perfect Place for a Great Day Out

Tenerife is full of wonderful places to spend a day either with a group of friends or family, as a couple or by yourself. In fact here at Tenerife Magazine, we are often telling people how much more there is to do on the island than what most imagine. You can go stargazing up Mount Teide, one of the highest volcanoes in the world, explore incredible forests, wander around the many fascinating urban areas dotted around, see whales and dolphins in the wild, go paragliding, take a helicopter flight, and a whole host of other amazing experiences!

Despite all of this, we simply cannot deny that Tenerife is an incredible destination to get away from all the stress of everyday life, with gorgeous blue skies and warm sunny weather to enjoy! We definitely recommend exploring some of the island to get a true idea of all that Tenerife has to offer, but if you are looking for a relaxing day, then Oasis Los Gigantes is the perfect place for a great day out. While most hotels and resorts you may choose to stay at have a pool, there are few that offer anything that even manages to get close to this awesome setting and atmosphere.

This fantastic leisure center is located in the wonderful town of Los Gigantes in the South-West of the island. The town derives its name from the Ancantilados de Los Gigantes (Cliffs of the Giants). If you have never been to Los Gigantes before, the first time you see these cliffs you will see why their name needs no explanation; they are absolutely enormous!! In fact, these are some of the highest sea cliffs in the world and are definitely one of the most impressive sights in not just Tenerife but all of the Canary Islands.

As soon as you enter Oasis Los Gigantes you will be treated to a gorgeous setting with verdant green grass, beautiful tall palm trees and many other wonderful plants that really gives a tropical feel. While much of Tenerife can be quite dry, especially in the south and towards the coast, Oasis really does live up to its name as it stands out as an oasis of green and blue in contrast to the surrounding dry landscape and buildings.

The main attraction, of course, is the impressive infinity pool which has absolutely incredible views. It’s no exaggeration to say that there are few swimming pools in the Canary Islands with such a stunning panoramic vista. When you are swimming or relaxing in the pool you will be directly surrounded by palm trees, green grass, the poolside bar and plenty of sun loungers for topping up your tan.

From the infinity side of the pool, there is a spectacular view out to the ocean, while gazing towards the beach style entrance at the other end of the pool outwards you will be astounded by the incredible Ancantilados de Los Gigantes rising majestically from the water. The views are so incredible that they barely seem real and almost certainly beats staying at your hotel pool.  We’re in no doubt that this setting will leave you feeling totally relaxed!

Oasis Los Gigantes is much more than just a pool and views though. There is ample space all around for relaxing on sun loungers, either at the newly renovated terrace area next to the pool or on the verdant green grass under the palm trees where you can really enjoy that tropical oasis vibe. For those that enjoy a little more privacy and luxury, there are beautiful Bali beds which can be booked. These are set away from the main chill out areas, with some located down steps near the infinity side of the pool with views out to the ocean.

There is another even more private gated VIP area with a Deluxe Bali bed and sun-bathing area with sun loungers, and your own shower. Here, in this quieter setting away from the pool and behind the grass and palm trees you will be treated to exclusive views out to the ocean and incredible Los Gigantes cliffs. You can relax here in complete tranquility and even close the curtains on the Bali bed for that added feeling of privacy.

The main saltwater pool is perfect for swimming or simply relaxing at the infinity end, admiring the views. It is also safe for older children and teenagers with its beach style entrance on one side which gradually slopes down on the opposite end from the infinity side. As well as having a beautiful setting, the pool is also a lot of fun for adults and kids alike with a brand new slide which you’ll be sure to find yourself zipping down multiple times during your day at Oasis. For the younger kids, there is a super fun children’s pool with plenty of water games that the kids will be sure to love!

If you start to get thirsty or hungry, then at Oasis Los Gigantes you will be well catered for, either at the pool-side bar which has a variety of different hot and cold beverages including beers, cocktails, soft drinks, fruit juices, coffee or tea. You can enjoy your drinks at the bar seating area looking out to sea or take your drinks back to your sun lounger, the choice is entirely yours.

At the restaurant, you will be spoilt for choice with a huge variety of different meals to suit all different tastes and preferences including a variety of different starters, salads, meat and fish dishes, pasta, pizza, hamburgers, tortillas, paella and more. There is also a children’s menu, plus delicious desserts to finish off for an added bit of indulgence.

Speaking of added indulgence, to ease any aches and pains you may be feeling from that stressful job back home, you can enjoy total relaxation with a massage which can be booked onsite. If you are feeling a bit more energetic, as well as swimming and sliding down the pool, you can also play a game of bowls or tennis.

As you can probably tell, Oasis Los Gigantes is a lot more than just a pool with a view, but an awesome leisure centre with an amazing setting where you can do as little or as much as you choose, indulge in some luxury and enjoy some quality time with your friends, family or significant other. It really is the perfect place for a great day out!

5 Easy Ways You Can Keep Cool and Safe in Tenerife this Summer

Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, is affectionately known by many as “The Island of Eternal Spring” because throughout the year you can almost be guaranteed gorgeous, warm sunny weather, that’s also not too hot. At almost any time of the year you can sunbathe by the pool, go for a swim in the beautiful blue ocean, or wander around in shorts and t-shirt. This is even the case during what are  technically the winter months, so you never need to worry about having to wrap up warm or hibernating at home to escape the cold.

While it is certainly the case that Tenerife is renowned for its reliably pleasant climate throughout the majority of the year, including relatively mild summers and warm winters, this doesn’t mean you can become completely complacent about the heat of summer. While you will generally not face extremes of temperature, unlike many other destinations, there are often days during the summer months when temperatures can feel unbearable. This can be especially true if you are used to a colder climate, such as that of the UK.

Average temperatures hover around 25ºC during July, August and September, but these can certainly get a lot hotter, especially during a heat-wave. While parts of the island can become fairly breezy at times, the winds are a lot less strong than some of the other islands such as Lanzarote or Fuerteventura, so you cannot rely on this to cool you down. Skies are generally clear and blue, with little in the way of cloud cover, especially in the South of the island where many of you will be enjoying your holidays. At times during hot summer days, the sun and heat can be almost unbearable!

Summer is a brilliant time to visit Tenerife, but so that you can enjoy the very best stay on the island, or even for those of you lucky enough to call Tenerife home, here are 5 easy ways you can keep cool and safe in Tenerife this  summer:

  1. Hire a Portable Air Conditioning Unit

One of the most effective ways to stay cool during the hot summer months is with air conditioning in your hotel room, apartment or house. After a hot day out on the beach, exploring one of the many sights of Tenerife, or shopping, it is extremely satisfying to be able to come back to a cool place to stay. Unfortunately many hotel rooms or holiday apartments do not have air-conditioning units, and many homeowners don’t feel like it is necessary to have air-conditioning installed because it is often not hot enough all year-round to warrant spending that much money. It is not just the days that are hot in Tenerife in summer though, the nights can sometimes can be unbearably warm making it very difficult to sleep.

Now, there is a great solution for this problem though! For a very reasonable price you can rent modern, efficient portable air conditioning units from Portable Air Conditioning Tenerife. These units are perfect for Holiday, Residential and Commercial Rentals and provide an affordable, excellent alternative to a permanent air conditioning installation. The unit is extremely quiet in operation, has a three speed fan, touch control and will keep you lovely and cool day and night during the summer months in Tenerife. So don’t worry about overheating on holiday, chill out and rent a wonderful portable air conditioning unit, then sit back and relax in cool comfort!

  1. Make sure to keep your sun cream topped up!

This is essential to avoid turning bright red like a lobster with a painful sun-burn, and even more importantly to prevent the harmful effects of the sun’s rays that can lead to skin cancer. This is especially true if you’re planning to spend an extended period of time in the sun such as sunbathing on the beach or by the pool.

You should top up your sun cream regularly including after a swim, cover all exposed skin and wear the right level for your skin type. The paler your skin, the higher factor cream you should wear to stay well protected. It is important to cover up with sun cream whatever your skin colour though, as the sun’s rays affect everyone, especially at their most intense during summer.

  1. Stay cool with a Body & Face Cooling Mist spray

While readily available to buy in the UK and many other places across Europe, cooling mist sprays have been strangely absent from the shores of Tenerife. That was the case, up until very recently, as you can now purchase the Beauty Formulas Body & Face Cooling Mist directly in Tenerife. If you have never tried, or even heard of this before, you’re in for a cooling treat. Simple shake and spray this fine mist on your face and body to feel instantly refreshed. This spray is perfect for all skin types as it is preservative free and can be used regularly and as often as required.

It is absolutely ideal for use on hot days, humid nights, sunbathing, and during and after sports. Anytime you are feeling overheated during the hot summer days or nights in Tenerife, you can use this spray to feel cool and refreshed. The spray instantly stimulates and revives the skin and will leave you feeling ready to carry on enjoying the beautiful sunny days.

  1. Avoid too much time in the sun at peak intensity

Now we completely understand, if you’ve decided to head to Tenerife during the summer, then you probably want to top up your tan. After all, your friends and family won’t believe you’ve even been away if you don’t come back with a golden glow. While we can’t deny we also like a bit of a tan, we know how important it is to keep your skin safe. This is especially the case if you’ve just arrived on holiday from a northern European country, because quite simply you won’t be used to the intensity of the sun in Tenerife.

It is highly advisable to avoid extended periods of exposure to the sun during peak intensity (10am-3pm). This is when the sun’s rays are their most powerful and can do the most damage to your skin and eyes, as the UV light is strongest. During these times, we would recommend not sunbathing, or if you do, only for a short period and with plenty of suncream. Try to stick to the shade and cover up with clothing, as you also risk becoming dehydrated and getting sunstroke which is extremely unpleasant. Don’t worry, there is plenty of tanning time outside of these peak hours!

  1. Make sure to drink plenty of water

Last, but certainly not least you need to drink a lot of water to avoid becoming dehydrated. Obviously when the weather is warmer you will inevitably sweat more, it is almost unavoidable, especially as the temperatures start approaching 30 degrees in the summer in Tenerife. While it is tempting to grab a beer or soft drink, this is certainly not ideal if you want to stay hydrated. You will feel momentarily better, but soon afterwards even more thirsty. This is the problem with alcohol or soft drinks that are full of sugar, so we suggest sticking to water if you really want to feel refreshed.

This is especially necessary if you find yourself wandering around in the hot sun, playing sport or even if you’re just chilling out at the beach or by the pool. If you’re not drinking enough water then you will more than likely start getting a headache and begin to feel ill, so stay hydrated!
