Located on the largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife, Puerto de la Cruz is home to beautiful beaches filled with black volcanic sands. Head to Playa Jardin beach, the oldest resort on the island to find entry points for Atlantic water sports. Elsewhere, Martianez Beach is known for its famous outdoor swimming pool, while the beach itself is popular with amateur surfers. At the outdoor pool, you’ll find sea-water pools and resort-style restaurants suited to families looking for a relaxing day spent in the sun.
During your time in Spain’s Puerto de la Cruz, you’ll find many famous landmarks away from its volcanic beaches. Book a segway tour across the city to gain an insight into the history of the region and visit the medieval Church of Nuestra Señora de la Peña de Francia and the ancient stone castle of Castillo San Felipe. Alternatively, explore the city on foot to visit the penguins at Loro Parque Zoo or put on your hiking boots and journey through the picturesque hiking trails and waterfalls of the Parque Taoro. Here, you’ll be able to admire views of the Paseo de Colon and Mirador La Paz before ending your day spent in one of the many restaurants located in Plaza de Europa.
