Santa Cruz de Tenerife
Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the capital of the island. It’s also the most populated city and sits on the northeastern edge of Tenerife.
The first thing you’ll notice is the expressionist architecture of the island, and especially of the Tenerife Auditorium. And if you’re in the mood to go to the water park, you can find one just a stone’s throw away from the Auditorium. There are also plenty of beaches nearby, including the Playa de las Teresitas and the Playa de Benijo. You have everything within a couple of miles!
Los Gigantes is a small, resort town on the western coast of Tenerife. And the Los Gigantes Cliffs, the main attraction of the city, create a 1,600-foot high wall along the coast. Who wouldn’t want to see that?!
You can see the cliffs from practically anywhere in the town, including from the inside hotels and bars. This means you can enjoy the beautiful view while relishing in diverse cuisines from around the world served at many restaurants available.
La Laguna, a university town you could mistake for Cuba because of its traditionally styled balconies and colorful houses. The main attraction is, of course, the historic architecture, which includes churches like the Cathedral of La Laguna and the Iglesia de la Concepción.
If you love Spanish colonial architecture, you will find yourself falling in love with this city!
Puerto de la Cruz
Puerto de la Cruz is known to be a large and friendly city on the northern coast of Tenerife. The town has a pretty fast bus system and taxis are available everywhere, making it easy to travel around the city.
You don’t want to miss the Loro Parque Zoo. It’s humongous and holds live shows every day for both children and adults. And the Botanical Gardens are a must-see attraction. Located on a hill in an affluent part of the city, the gardens aren’t big, but the highlight is worth it.
Those of you who are looking for a more relaxed time on your trip, El Medano is the place for you.
Since the town is known for its strong winds, one of the most popular things to do is to windsurf. While resting on the beach, you can enjoy the gorgeous scenery, sunbathing on the volcanic sands of Playa Grande. There’s also a long boardwalk along the beach lined with restaurants, cafes, and shops, putting everything you need within a few miles.
Costa Adeje is part of the southern metropolitan area of the island. The town is so small. Visitors can comfortably walk from one end to the other.
Most people visit the area for the nearby beaches like La Troya and Del Duque. Without a couple of miles, there’s also a promenade, many resorts, and several shops for tourists. And the Siam Park water park makes it the perfect place to bring the family.
