Puerto de la Cruz ©
As one of Tenerife’s oldest port cities, Puerto de la Cruz embodies a hip, island personality, while still retaining its historic fishing village charm.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Playa del Duque and Playa De La Enramada. Visiting Teide National Park and Playa de las Vistas will get you outdoors. Step out of Puerto de la Cruz to go to Poris de Abona and see Faro del Porís, which is approximately 54 minutes away. Make the 9th (Fri) an awe-inspiring day at Garajonay National Park. There's lots more to do: get to know the resident critters at Loro Parque, contemplate the geological forces at Mount Teide, kick back and relax at Playa Jardin, and pick up some local products at Mercadillo Valle de La Orotava.
