We have been going to Los Gigantes over the New Year period for the 5 years up until this one, where we decided to do something different. Now we fancy going there again but possibly at Easter instead, as we do really like it. The thing is that we had felt on our last visit in 2008/9 that it was going downhill a bit and don't want to be disappointed if we do decide to go again. The main issue is shops/restaurants closing down, particularly in the harbour area, where we'd often have a sundowner. Is the beach at all accessible now and if not, when might it be? And please don't tell me that the ice cream guy at La Vela (beach road) has packed in?!
