Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife

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 Garajonay National Park will get you outdoors. Explore Puerto de la Cruz's surroundings by going to Playa de las Vistas (in Los Cristianos) and Faro del Porís (in Poris de Abona). There's lots more to do: observe the fascinating underwater world at Loro Parque, contemplate the geological forces at Mount Teide, stroll through Playa Jardin, and shop like a local with Mercadillo Valle de La Orotava.

For maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Puerto de la Cruz trip planner.

Izmir, Turkey to Puerto de la Cruz is an approximately 14-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. The time zone changes from Turkey Time to Western European Standard Time, which is usually a -3 hour difference. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Mon) early enough to travel to Maspalomas.
