The Canary Islands owe a unique, natural character due to their location. In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, right in the tropical region, they are located only 115 km from the west coast of Africa.
The archipelago consists of the seven islands Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro. In total, more than 2.1 million people live on the Canary Islands, with the largest share of the population, about 80 %, on the two main islands, Tenerife and Gran Canaria.
Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands. It has a population of about 650,000 people, of which about 60 % live in the region between Santa Cruz and La Laguna. Through historical development, these two cities became the largest and most important on the island and Santa Cruz is now the capital of the island.
Tenerife rises from the coast and formed the huge volcano Teide in the middle, which at 3,718 meters is the largest peak in Spain. The volcano serves as a wall that stops winds from the north and caused the islands surprisingly diverse landscape. A green, rural and humid region contrasts harshly with the dry, hot south of the island. All this gives Tenerife a unique charm.
Beautiful natural spectacles await you in the Teide National Park, the Anaga Mountains, in La Esperanza and in Las Mercedes. Other highlights are the cliffs of Los Gigantes, the Orotava Valley and the Masca Gorge.
The island also offers a wide range of other leisure activities such as cinema, concerts, a wide choice of bars and restaurants, shopping districts, theatres and museums, Canarian folklore and traditional festivals.
The weather maintains constant temperatures ranging from 20°C in winter to 25°C in summer. This is why the island is also called the island of eternal spring.
Stroll through exotic botanical gardens, enjoy the sun and beaches along the unique volcanic coast or spend an unforgettable day in Loro Park. There are many ways to spend your free time in Puerto de la Cruz.
Outside the city, nature lovers can admire the beautiful natural spectacle of the Orotava Valley and the spectacular impression of Spain’s highest peak, the Teide. The town extends over a small port and includes wide avenues and lush rural areas. The best way to experience everything is on foot. Along the way you will see historic buildings including the fort of San Felipe and the church of Señora de la Peña.
