Puerto de la Cruz holidays transport you to a luxuriant landscape, filled with tropical palms and plantations, in the fertile Valley of Orotava on the northern coast of Tenerife. It is a historic town, with buildings dating from the seventeenth century, that was popular with tourists long before the advent of cheap flights and package holidays. The port is very busy with cruise ships docking almost daily along with local fishing boats. Playa de Jardin is the town beach which is comprised of coarse black sand. Remember that it slopes into the mighty Atlantic Ocean, and while waves may not always be heavy, there are strong currents. The attractive backdrop to this beach, and also Martianez beach, was designed by the architect Cesar Manrique and is composed of gardens and waterfalls, terraces and bridges. It's a very pleasant place to while away the hours. Tenerife has much to tempt you from the beach with its range of attractions and excursions. The Siam waterpark is very popular with families, as is the Loro bird Park. Those who take a delight in more natural pursuits will enjoy the botanical gardens at La Paz and the volcanic landscape of Mount Teide. On a clear day, you can take the cable car to the top and experience stunning views. Whether you have come for relaxation or adventure, your low-cost Puerto de la Cruz holiday is sure to satisfy.
