PUERTO DE LA CRUZ HOLIDAYS
A traditional Canarian resort
Puerto De La Cruz holidays offer a unique view into traditional Canarian life. This small traditional fishing village has seen British guests soak up the sun on its dark volcanic beaches since the 19th century yet maintained its original charm.
Puerto De La Cruz, which translates in English as ‘Crossport’, is situated on the northern coast of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, and takes just over an hour to reach from Tenerife South Airport.
During the day fishermen can be seen bringing their morning catches to the shore, whilst the inland view is of the picturesque sun soaked hills. A stroll through the cobbled streets of Puerto De La Cruz is highly recommended to experience the authenticity of the resort.
The old town is one of the very few areas which attract locals and tourists alike with its traditional cuisine and amazing fresh seafood dishes.
