Puerto de la Cruz attracts visitors all year round thanks its balmy climate and is the ideal destination from which to enjoy cheap breaks to Tenerife. An attractive and bustling resort - it prides itself on being a great alternative to the party destinations of the area. Puerto de la Cruz is the ideal getaway destination for families and couples who want to relax in the sunshine by day and enjoy the buzz of the city by night.
The city offers fantastic shopping and entertainment, while at the beach you will find the black volcanic sands that have become a signature of holidays to Tenerife. Spend a few days unwinding on the popular Playa De Jardin – those seeking a tan can enjoy some downtime on their sun-loungers, while thrill-seekers can experience water sports both on and under the waves.
Playa de Jardin's tropical surroundings are something special – here is where you'll find palm trees and waterfalls lining the promenade. If you're searching for a quieter beach, head to Playa Martianez where you'll also find the water-park Lago Martianez. It houses a salt-water lake and several swimming pools, framed by sub-tropical gardens, so there's lots to explore.
If you're not the lounging type, or you simply need a change of scenery, then you are ideally placed for day trips. Families can enjoy the popular attraction of Lorque Park, which is based in Puerto de la Cruz. Watch the parrot shows, visit the white tiger enclosure and sit back and enjoy the dolphin, sea-lion and orca performance.
