"Puerto de la Cruz" Isla de Tenerife Things to Do Tip by bijo69

Isla de Tenerife Things to Do: 622 reviews and 955 photos


Puerto de la Cruz is the touristic centre of the North. Despite all the new highrise hotels and apartment blocks, the town has a nice centre and quite some charme.
You won't find great sandy beaches here, but there's a decent stretch of black beach at the Western end of town and the public swimmingpools of the Costa Martianez.
The Botanical Garden is worth a visit and if you're interested in parrots and other animals the Loro Parque is another option to spend your time.
