Santa Cruz is the capital of Tenerife and its most populous city. Located in the northeast, it makes a great base to explore the Anaga Mountains while standout eateries, shops, museums and parks make it a destination of its own. Make sure you check out the Auditorio de Tenerife, an iconic arts center with stunning architecture, and also head down to the historic Plaza de España for some of the most important buildings in the city, and the incredible fountain built by architects Herzog & de Meuron.
Colorful and historic, La Laguna is possibly the most beautiful town on the island. Nestled in stunning countryside the drive to La Laguna alone is enough to charm. The Old Town dates back to the 15th Century and the town has UNESCO world heritage status.
Los Gigantes is an impressive resort town in the south of the island, famous for its amazing cliffs; the Acantilados de Los Gigantes. We highly recommend taking the road trip on Tenerife from Los Gigantes to Tamaimo to get the best views of these magnificent giants. The black sand beach in Los Gigantes is also terrific while the town has plenty of excellent natural seawater lidos. One the best pools is the Isla Cangrejo situated on the road out to Puerto de Santiago
