Must see in Tenerife
You will find Playa Jardín beach in the tourist town of Puerto de la Cruz, in the north of Tenerife. This is one of the most famous beaches in the region, and was designed in the 1990s by the famous Canarian artist, César Manrique, created to guarantee rest and relaxation for its visitors. Even just getting to the beach, via gardens full of local plants with pathways that take you between stone walls and waterfalls is the perfect way to start a thoroughly relaxing day on a beach that offers all the services you need and incredible views of Mount Teide.
Three urban coves with black sand in Puerto de la Cruz
Playa Jardín beach is an urban black sand beach divided into three sections, Castillo beach, Charcón beach and Punta Brava beach. There is a lateral breakwater to protect bathers from high waves but there are still open areas for those wanting to surf. The promenade connects the beach with gardens, children’s playgrounds, terraces and cafeterias and a stage where concerts frequently take place. Additionally there is sunbed and parasol hire, showers, changing rooms and access for those with reduced mobility.
In the north of Tenerife and close to the city of La Laguna, Tegueste has an historic centre that has been labelled a Place of Cultural Interest. Not all towns can pride themselves on this honour, but the unique nature of its historic and artistic collections more than justifies this title. Situated between ravines and close to the Anaga Rural Park – a natural treasure of Tenerife – this town has evolved into a reference point for wine tourism and its rural landscape is a veritable sea of vineyards.
Visit bodegas and discover Tegueste’s history
Getting to know the history of this picturesque town is about going deeper into its wine tourism. Through the local tourism office, you can book a place on guided wine tours, which will bring you to the agricultural corners of the town and, to the bodegas where the town’s excellent wines are produced. Tegueste also has a complete network of well-signposted nature trails which will bring you to the most important sites of interest such as the emblematic foundational site of the town at La Arañita or the interpretation and ethnographic centre at Casa de los Zamoranos.
Santa Cruz de Tenerife
Located in the north-east of the island of Tenerife, the capital bears the marks of the passing of time and a history spanning more than five centuries. Founded on May 3, 1494 by the Castilian, Alonso Fernández de Lugo, it soon became a key port on the trade route between Europe and the Americas. Lined with churches and historic buildings, the plazas Principe, Weyler, San Francisco and Candelaria are picturesque spots to visit.
Tenerife’s most important bay, with churches, markets and historic streets
The bay of Santa Cruz de Tenerife reflects its maritime past with historical buildings such as the Concepción Church and the Palacio de Carta. Dating from the early 20th Century is the García Sanabria Park, which borders the Toscal neighbourhood. The market of Nuestra Señora de África with its graceful colonial ambience, attracts visitors every Sunday, keen to explore its popular antiques market. Traditional bars and eateries can be found in the popular Calle de la Noria, which is also home to the headquarters of some of Tenerife’s most important groups of carnival street musicians.
