Lazy day in Puerto de la Cruz

Wiki says, that

Tourism is an important industry in Puerto de la Cruz (…) [It] is frequented by Northern Europeans during the winter months, due to its mild climate, and is particularly popular over Christmas and the New Year periods. The Western European tourist contingent to Puerto de la Cruz tends to consist more of mature couples, in contrast to resorts such as Playa de las Americas.”


What can we deduce about ourselves from this short description? That Poland definitely belongs to the global West (bye bye old Iron Curtain, never loved you anyway), but it’s a little bit further on the North that we originally thought 😉 Moreover, that we are much older than we thought (the whole Tenerife trip was a part of a B-day present for K., who recently turned thirty). Well, I didn’t know that he’s so old! (because I turned 18 some time ago and since then I don’t age anymore, that’s kind of obvious).

So what the European oldies enjoyed most in Puerto de la Cruz?

Neat and organized city

Local flora still remembers better times

 And the one which remembers quite a lot (I assume)

We also paid a visit to Loro Parque, but I believe it deserves a separate post  🙂

I must admit that we spent a really pleasant day in Puerto de la Cruz.
No hurry, not a single „must-do” except „eat local fish”, which was quite easy 😉

  1. Beautiful pictures of Puerto de la Cruz, Isabela. Thanks for linking up to #TheWeeklyPostcard.

  2. Wow, what a beautiful pictures! The black sand is amazing! I now am dreaming to go there and to shoot it in Black&White…

    • Ekaterina, very good idea!
      Just one thing – it looks nice, but walking barefoot on this volcanic pebble beach is a kind of… very strong experience 😉

  3. Your pictures of Puerto de la Cruz are just stunning! I can see why it’s a huge draw for tourists. The beaches and that black sand are so inviting. What a great way to spend the day or weekend.
