Puerto de la Cruz is a long established resort in northern Tenerife that is a favourite with people from the Spanish mainland. The resort boast what is known as Playa de Jardin the garden beach, which has fine black sand, as befits a volcanic island, sparkling blue waters and a wonderful garden backdrop. The beach runs for a kilometre and there are small cafes and volcanic rocks lining its edge. Puerto de la Cruz has other beaches besides its most famous one; there is a pebbled beach down by the harbour where fishing boats are sometimes berthed. Sellers of Canarian delicacies and seafood’s line the street fronting the harbour.
Another of Puerto de La Cruz’s favourite beaches is Lago Martianez, designed by Cesar Manrique, the same person who designed the garden beach. Lago Martianez is a nature themed complex that overlooks the coast, salt waterfalls and tropical gardens and there is also a terrace café. There are also some smaller beaches around the resort of Puerto de La Cruz including Playa Muelle and Playa San Teimo. There are water sports and boat rides available on the beaches and if you get tired of the water than you can simply lie on the sand and worship the sun. There is swimming and diving and jet skiing around the coast of the resort and when you tire of activities and sun worship you can take a stroll and get a drink and a snack at one of the cafes along the edge.
