Puerto de la Cruz - Tenerife - Canary Islands Hotels

Mini guide to Puerto de la Cruz - Tenerife - Canary Islands


Situated in the north of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, off the west coast of Africa, Puerto de la Cruz attracts visitors with its stunning beaches, excellent hotels, historical architecture and vibrant nightlife.

Puerto's premier beach, the popular Playa Jardin, is the main attraction and is very popular with visitors and local surfers alike. Overlooking the beach stands a stout early 17th century fort, the Castillo de San Felipe; and opposite is the Archaeological Museum which contains a collection of Guanche pottery and is located on a quaint pedestrian street at the heart of this district.

The centre of Puerto is focused around the small Plaza del Charco, in the centre of a pedestrian district and beside a small harbour. From here the pedestrian area spreads west into Ranilla, a quaint old fishing quarter, and east along the seafront through the town's shopping district. Also easy to explore on foot are the impressive subtropical Botanical Gardens, home to an amazing variety of 3,000 plant species from around the world, including Californian palms and Brazilian shrubs.

There's no shortage of bars and clubs in Puerto and a generous supply of cafés and restaurants can be found in the busy, shady Plaza del Charco. Water sports, including good surfing and scuba diving, abound; and mountain bike tours are available for cyclists of all abilities.

If you have a car and an interest in local wines, head for Tenerife's wine museum, the Casa Del Vino La Baranda. The museum is housed in a beautifully restored 17th century hacienda set in a major agricultural region. For some spectacular scenery, head for the picturesque village of Masca set in the Teno Mountains.

Sur Reina Sofia Airport is located in the south of the island and receives regular international flights from around the world. Regular buses ply the route to Los Cristianos and taxis are also available.
