Puerto de la Cruz attracts the more refined, sophisticated and mature tourists who come to relax, unwind and enjoy the island's treasures.
The city boasts a quaint harbour with fishing boats and a medieval old quarter that takes you back in time. Along the narrow streets, you will find plenty of authentic tapas bars and along the beachfront strip, there are more international restaurants and cocktail bars with live music making for a more lively evenings entertainment.
