Experiences: Santa Cruz de Tenerife
Santa Cruz is a lovely city that offers a variety of activities and places where visitors will enjoy some of the best experiences in Tenerife: walking across the busy Plaza de España, a concert by the sea at the Tenerife Auditorium or a day on Antequera beach, accessed on boats departing from Santa Cruz. The capital of Tenerife is a unique place of pure energy, day and night.
Experiences in Santa Cruz: What to do
- Shopping in Santa Cruz de Tenerife: The city has top-brand shops and boutiques mingled with small traditional shops and big clothing retail stores. The best shopping districts in Santa Cruz are Castillo, El Pilar, San José and the surroundings, and Las Ramblas. There is something for everyone in these nice areas.
- Tapas and drinks at night: In the last years, following thorough renovation work, the area where the Church of La Concepción stands has become a lively and cheerful meeting point. It is great for eating tapas with a Canary flavour and having a few early drinks in Santa Cruz.
- Canary Islands wine route: Santa Cruz de Tenerife is part of one of the five grape-growing regions on the island. So one of the experiences you can enjoy here is a wine tour of the vineyards in Tacoronte-Acentejo. Some of the most important establishments are a pebble’s throw from town, in Taganana (Anaga).
- A night at the opera in the Auditorium: The large concert hall at the Santa Cruz Maritime Park is the official residence of the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra and runs classical music and opera seasons that make a great opportunity to mingle with the cream of society in the capital of Tenerife.
- A day in the Maritime Park: Constructed by César Manrique, the park is ideal to spend a day filled with experiences like swimming in the seawater pools, tasting traditional dishes while admiring the Atlantic Ocean, sipping a drink on an outdoor bar while the kids have fun in the playground, pamper oneself in the spa or simply take a stroll in the botanical garden, with more than 300 palm-tree species.
