The main square in Puerto De La Cruz. Around here you will find all you need including cafes, restaurants, supermarket, chemist, ice cream parlor, taxi rank and public toilets.

We visited this place almost every day of the Holiday. There are lots of good restaurants (often with live music), ice cream vendors and other shops. A great place to sit and people watch whilst drinking or having a meal.

The square is surrounded on three sides by restaurants and bars. On the fourth side is the taxi rank, and a supermarket. Very popular place to chill out, and is only 30 mts from the small harbour.

The principal avenue of Puerto de la Cruz, where you can enjoy a good variety of restaurants. But, besides that, there isn't much more there to do.

This is the place to stroll round, enjoy a coffee, a meal, tapas, people watch. buy groceries, perfume souvenirs, get a taxi, a place fotr kids to enjoy the swings etc. Puert being a Spanish town makes it lively in the evening after the Siesta.
