Beach or City? Have both on a Santa Cruz de Tenerife holiday

This at times overlooked resort is probably one of Tenerife’s best kept secrets. Santa Cruz De Tenerife, known locally as Santa Cruz, is the capital of the island and a bustling centre of culture and activity, home to a harbour steeped in history and a huge array of holiday hotspots. Although it may not be the obvious choice for your next trip to Tenerife, a holiday to Santa Cruz De Tenerife has much to offer, for an affordable romantic getaway, trip with friends or even a week away with the whole family.

See the sights and relax in the sun, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Fancy a beach based aerobics class in the morning and a city sculpture trail in the afternoon? If the answer’s yes, then a Santa Cruz De Tenerife holiday will be just your cup of tea! Perfect for those wanting to combine some time on the beach and the excitement of a city break, this fantastic resort has so much going on, you’ll wonder how you’re going to cram it all in!

Although your trip will be predominantly city based, Playa de las Teresitas, the local beach is a mere 20 minute bus ride away. If you fancy escaping for a quick sunbath, this gorgeous beach is a must see, before strolling down to the local village of San Andres to have a bit of lunch in one of the many fish restaurants. On your return to the city there are a whole host of cultural activities to try out, admire some art at the Municipal Museum of Fine Arts or if you’re a music lover visit the The Auditorium, known locally as Auditorio de Tenerife, and see what takes your fancy from their diverse programme of artists. Another nearby destination worth checking out is Las Caletillas. See here for all holidays to Las Caletillas
