Santa Cruz De Tenerife in Canary Islands

As the island’s capital, you can experience almost everything that Tenerife has to offer in the Santa Cruz de Tenerife. This wonderful capital boasts a bunch of eye-popping wonders, which include the Playa de Las Teresitas beach and the Parque García Sanabria public park; and architecture, such as the Santiago Calatrava-designed Auditorio de Tenerife, Torres de Santa Cruz (Towers of Santa Cruz) and the 17th-century castle called Castillo de San Juan, that will certainly be one for the books and a weekend worthwhile.

You can spend the whole weekend going out and about Santa Cruz in Tenerife.

Los Cristianos

The focal point of this town is its harbour. It is one of Tenerife’s and the whole Canary Island’s popular resorts as it is famous for its golden sun beaches and other natural attractions. For the weekend, a lot of activities can be done here, including fishing and diving.

Puerto de la Cruz

Located on the north coast of Tenerife, this historical town is famous among tourists as well, thanks to its lush gardens and friendly weather. If you are someone interested in history, this place in the island is where you should be heading for a weekend as it is surrounded by buildings with both historical and artistic value.

Santa Ursula

Although not as famous as the preceding towns, Santa Ursula has its own charm among tourists. It is a traditional Canarian town that offers visitors a glimpse of what the island used to be prior to its tourism fame.
