Destination: Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Are you looking for tranquility, fun and unique places? If so, your destination is, the capital of this beautiful Canary Island; a place where the sun, the sea, the nature in its purest form, tastes and leisure join harmoniously. In short, the perfect holidays we all dream of.

Tenerife is not a very big city and can be visited from end to end with your partner, family or friends. Its capital, Santa Cruz, is one of those places that is well worth visiting and discovering. This island has over 150 kilometers where you can find beautiful beaches (such as Las Teresitas) and stunning volcanic mountains which are always the object of amazing snapshots. Where can you spend those visiting hours and what are the places that any visitor should not miss?

Must visit places

Regarding the large shore of Santa Cruz, it is remarkable the magic of its deep blue coastline that fades in the horizon. All this coast is perfect to take pictures and to freeze the moments as those offered -without going any further- the Yacht Club of the capital.

You can take part of that magic engraved in your mind when visiting such beautiful places as César Manrique Maritime Park or Santa Cruz Maritime Park. It is an impressive architectural masterpiece made as an ode to nature that is just a few meters away from the sea (because of that, it is so imposing and always recommended to visit).

Time for gourmet cuisine

Although on holiday we tend to make a lot of plans which last all day, the truth is that there is nothing like taking a break to enjoy first class gourmet cuisine inspired by local products and intense flavors.

One of those essential restaurants you can not miss on a trip to Tenerife is Los Menceyes. It is a place for lunch or dinner, where you can delight unique dishes prepared by chefs from IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel Mencey Hotel.

This hotel, as well as being one of the most remarkable culinary center of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, is a benchmark of quality in terms of cooking courses in Tenerife thanks to its supply of Aula de Cocina del Mencey (be sure to inform yourself if you are a food lover).
