Make a holiday apartment in Santa Cruz your home away from home

Set in Tenerife’s capital, holiday homes in Santa Cruz are ideal for people who want to combine the culture and sightseeing of a city getaway with the relaxation of a beach holiday. The natural scenery all around Tenerife is breathtaking, and in this corner of the island guests can make for the Aranaga Mountain range for walking trips or head to the north coast to visit wild Atlantic beaches.

As befits urban accommodation holiday apartments in Santa Cruz are appointed with the appliances and connectivity to make a self-catering holiday as convenient as possible. These spacious and modern rentals will suit families and are located close to the sea. Guests can share holiday snaps via wi-fi access, or, when it’s time to take it easy, take advantage of the home entertainment provided.

Things to do

-Beaches: Santa Cruz is next to one of the best beaches on the entire island. Palm-lined Playa de las Teresitas is a golden sandy bay next to the rugged hills of the Anaga Range. The ocean here is calm and almost perfectly clear, which makes it the perfect spot for a family beach trip. The facilities are great too, and there’s always something going on, be it volleyball matches or yoga classes.

-Sightseeing: A few minutes inland from Santa Cruz is the beautiful renaissance city of San Cristóbal de la Laguna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with lots of neatly preserved buildings from the 16th century, and a city layout that would be replicated at countless colonial settlements in the Americas. HomeAway has a selection of holiday rentals in this city. Santa Cruz also has a number of modern landmarks, like the spectacular opera house, the Torres de Santa Cruz skyscrapers and the bustling Plaza de España.

-Nature: Tenerife is famed for its volcanic landscapes, and nowhere are they more dramatic than in the El Teide National Park, home to the eponymous stratovolcano, which at 3,718 metres is the tallest peak in all of Spain. Closer to Santa Cruz is the Aranaga Range, which takes up all of the northeast coast. Here there are mountains 1,000 metres in height and precipitous ravines to explore.

-Days out: With a car no part of Tenerife’s coastline is off limits. Guests could make their way down to the east coast to visit the modern beach resorts at Los Cristianos and Playa de las Américas. For a totally different experience, visit the north, which is loved for its picturesque old towns like Garachico and La Olavata, as well as the rural character of its landscapes that are home to vineyards, and banana and avocado plantations.

-Carnival: Tenerife’s carnival is held here in February every year. It’s one of the world’s largest street parties and only behind Rio de Janeiro’s carnival in terms of size and renown. It’s a glitzy, week-long flurry of parades, traditional music performances, historic cultural rituals like the Burial of the Sardine and contests to pick the best performers.

Weather in Santa Cruz

Set on the eastern side of northern Tenerife, Santa Cruz benefits from the subtropical-semi-arid climate shared by the southern portions of the island. Whenever guests arrive at a Santa Cruz apartment there should be springlike conditions outside. Temperatures peak in the low or mid-20s throughout the year, with only a small difference between summer and winter weather. From November to March the weather is a little cooler and a little damper, with highs of 21?C. Summers get maximum temperatures of 27?C here.

Travel to Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz is served by Tenerife North Airport (TFN). This is the main way onto the island for guests arriving from mainland Spain or France. Holidaymakers coming to a Santa Cruz apartment from the UK will use Tenerife South (TFS), which has a wealth of connections to cities across the country via charter and low-cost carriers. It’s an advantage to have use of a car here, as the airport is about 40 minutes by road from Santa Cruz. The drive is an easy one though, following the TF-1 for the entirety.

Excellent studio apartment in a great central location of Costa Adeje

5 of 5
We stayed here a few weeks ago, apartment is situated on the Orlando complex which is a few minutes walk to central Adeje, the complex has 3 pools and this apartment overlooks the small pool ( which we used daily ). One of the best things we found was that we didn't have to reserve sun beds all week , the complex is mainly residential so the majority were at work and school, plenty of shops and great restaurants and bars close by. I would highly recommend for couples who want a relaxing break, I wouldn't recommend if you have walking difficulties or have a disability as their are quite a few steps or a small hill to access the apartment The owner Max was great, we were met by one of his colleagues on arrival and departure and communication was perfect from when we booked. Over all an excellent stay and I would highly recommend, great value for money and we will be staying again.
