Tourism plays a big role in Puerto De La Cruz and has helped the resort to thrive. The town has an air of charm and sophistication about it, attracting thousands of British holidaymakers to its doors each year.

Puerto De La Cruz is located in the north of Tenerife, which tends to be a tad cooler than the south of the island, but nonetheless, it still enjoys a sub-tropical climate that gives it some lovely weather. During the summer months, the temperatures typically remain in the high-twenties, but frequently pass 30°C in July and August.
The winter months are slightly cooler, but are far warmer than the winters people experience in the UK, meaning that it is a great location to soak up the winter sun, and with cheap Puerto De La Cruz holidays available throughout the year, it is no wonder this resort is so reliant on the tourism industry.
There is plenty to keep you busy in this sunny community, but one of the main attractions of Puerto De La Cruz is, unsurprisingly, its beach. As with many of the resorts in Tenerife, the main beach, Playa de Jardin, contains volcanic black sands. It also has excellent facilities including changing rooms, sun loungers and a little kiosk for you to purchase any drinks or beach-themed goodies. You can also sign up to water sports such as wind surfing, which is popular in this area.
