Santa Cruz, Tenerife
Santa Cruz is the administrative capital of the Canary Islands and a major transport hub with its port linking Europe with Africa and the Americas. It is home to some impressive contemporary architecture including the Auditorio de Tenerife, an expressionist arts complex with an iconic profile that has come to symbolize the city. The city is also an important cultural center for the islands, we recommend the Museum of Fine Arts for its brilliant paintings from Madrazo, Ribera and Peter Coeck.
Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura
With a low population don't expect any bustling cities on Fuerteventura but do expect to be charmed by this small harbor town. The harbor area is the oldest part of the town and has many Canarian style houses that are worth a visit. Puerto del Rosario is near to Fuerteventura airport and is a handy spot for grocery shopping if staying in the nearby resorts.
Arrecife gets its name from the rocky reef that covers the beach which is located within the city. Like many of the major towns on the Canary Islands Arrecife is also an important port town with many cruise ships operating here. The town is also well connected to the rest of the island by major highways LZ1, LZ2 and LZ3. We highly recommend taking a walk around the Charco San Gines salt-water lagoon in the heart of the city. Another beauty spot is the Playa del Reducto, the main beach in Arrecife complete with golden sands and palm trees.
