    Things to do

    -Beaches: There are six beaches at Puerto de la Cruz, ranging in character and appearance. There’s a small one at the harbour in the heart of the town, and here the waters are remarkably calm. Martíanez is a gorgeous volcanic bay, with lively waters favoured by surfers. Playa Jardín is perhaps the most picturesque beach—it is lined with palm trees and has a large curve of dark sand where there are all the services and facilities required for a perfect day at the beach.

    -Natural sights: Puerto de la Cruz is within the Orotava Valley, which is a stunning natural park full of ravines, cliffs, gullies and vibrant greenery. El Teide is almost always visible in the distance. This 3,718-metre-high volcano is the tallest landform in the whole of Spain. Visitors can take a cable car up most of the way to the top, and from there either scale the peak or take in the views from scenic lookouts.

    -Golf: There are three courses on the northern side of Tenerife. The nearest is La Rosaleda, which is a nine-hole par 27 with gorgeous views of El Teide and the Orotava Valley. It’s ideal for newcomers or experienced players who want to work on their short game. Just over half an hour to the west of Puerto de la Cruz is Buenavista Golf, designed by Seve Ballesteros, while northeast is the prestigious Real Club de Golf de Tenerife.

    -Cuisine: For those interested in sampling Tenerife’s cuisine, guachinches are the restaurants to visit, serving indigenous fare. Among the many dishes to try are fish casseroles and vegetable soups and stews. Salmorejo meanwhile is rabbit marinated in paprika, garlic and chilli, and then grilled. Another way to get to know Tenerife’s culture is to arrive in time for the Carnival in February, and stay at a holiday rental in Santa Cruz, the island’s capital.

    -Family attractions: One of Tenerife’s most popular days out can be found in Puerto de la Cruz. Loro Parque is a zoo, originally oriented towards parrots and birdlife, but now containing a host of other animal species including gorillas, jaguars, giant tortoises, otters and alligators, while there are also demonstrations involving seals, dolphins and orcas.

    Weather in Puerto de la Cruz

    Weather conditions on Tenerife are springlike throughout the year. This is due to the island’s position, not far north of the Tropic of Cancer, and in line with winds that blow from North Africa and across the Atlantic from the Caribbean. Puerto de la Cruz holiday apartments are on Tenerife’s northern coast, which is known for being lusher than other parts of the island due to increased rainfall. Almost all of this rain occurs in the winter, between November and March. Daily temperatures at this time of year peak at 18?C, while the rest of the year gets consistent highs that hover around 23?C.
