We have been coming to LG for the last 5 years, as a family and absolutely love the area! Please do not open lots of night clubs, like other areas of Tenerife, it encourages lager louts and vile behaviour. I have always like LG because it is a safe area to take children out with you and it has always been a very welcoming place to visit. The lack of tourists maybe due to the credit crunch!! Everyone is feeling the pinch at the moment. Let's hope next year is a better year for the tourists. Please don't change the sand, black sand is part of the Islands character!
