Puerto de la Cruz
The three major tourist resorts may sit on the south of Tenerife, but that’s not say you should ignore the north – with Puerto de la Cruz offering an interesting alternative to the likes of Costa Adeje and Los Cristianos.
Despite being one of the oldest resorts on the island, Puerto de la Cruz retains an air of Canarian heritage and charm; with quaint narrow streets full of boutiques, bars and restaurants.
As well as being able to marvel at architecture from the famous artist Manrique, people staying in the resort can take a dip at the Lago Martianez artificial sea lake, enjoy a round of golf La Rosaleda Golf Club or spend the day in Loro Parque.
One of the top zoos around, Loro Parque is famous for being one of the few places where it is possible to see orca whales – with special shows running every day.
Volcanic black sand is a feature of the local beaches, whilst the area around the harbour is good for swimming thanks to the sheltered waters.
The laid back resort features a range of bars and restaurants but it isn’t the place to expect a rowdy night out, with people more inclined to sit back with a bottle of wine on an evening.
