    Things to do

    -Beaches: Whether guests prefer natural, remote beaches or family-friendly options with lots of facilities, there’s a good choice close to Santa Cruz. Las Teresitas is very close and is rightly considered to be among the very best on Tenerife. Here there’s a fantastic bay with golden sands, shallow clear waters for children to paddle in, and an eye-catching backdrop of palm trees and steep volcanic hillsides.

    -History: San Cristóbal de la Laguna is minutes from Santa Cruz de Tenerife and was once the island’s capital. Today it sits in an impeccable state of preservation and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This renaissance city, founded in the late-15th century, would prove to serve as a template for a whole host of colonial cities in the Americas in the centuries that followed. Among the many worthy sights are the old university buildings and the striking tower of the Iglesia de la Concepción.

    -Natural wonders: Tenerife is a volcanic island and some of its most remarkable sights are the result of violent events. On the western side of Tenerife is the Macizo de Teno, a volcanic ridge with high, precipitous cliffs and valleys rich with birdlife. An icon for the Canary Islands is El Teide, a stratovolcano dominating the landscape and encircled by a national park that takes up a great deal of Tenerife. It’s possible to ride a cable car to admire the incredible views from near the peak. Set on the edge of the nearby Anago Range, holiday homes in Igueste de San Andres are ideal for holidaymakers who want to be close to Tenerife’s sublime natural beauty.

    -Days out: Santa Cruz de Tenerife sits at the crossroads of the island’s north and south. If guest feel like experiencing the buzz of a 21st-century tourist resort they can head for the endless beaches at Cristianos or Playa Las Américas. For huge expanses of untouched nature there’s the Orotava Valley or the Anaga Range, and for picturesque towns that have barely changed in hundreds of years make for Icod de los Vinos or Garachico.

    -Carnival: Late-February is a fabulous time to visit Tenerife’s capital. This is will be in time for the carnival, which is one of the largest and most colourful street celebrations in the world.
