Cheap accommodation in Santa Cruz / Tenerife

Santa Cruz is the capital city of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, which are found just off the western coast of northern Africa in Europe. The capital is located in the northern tip of Tenerife and is the most cosmopolitan region of the island, full of business offices, government buildings and shopping malls. Despite being mostly a residential hub, the city does have a lot to offer tourists – from fascinating museums and art galleries to local restaurants and cheap accommodation in Santa Cruz, Tenerife.

Even though it’s an urban city, the jewel in Santa Cruz’s crown is the stunning Playa de Las Teresitas beach. Found in the north of the city, this beach is one of the most beautiful in the whole of Tenerife, with imported golden sands which seem to stretch on for miles, lined by gentle crystalline waters which rarely see any waves, thanks to the effective breakwaters permanently in place. Although there aren’t any hotels directly opposite Playa de Las Teresitas beach, you’ll find a great choice of cheap hotels in Santa Cruz, Tenerife which are connected to the beach via public transport.

With a handful of intriguing museums, vacation-enriching art galleries, the stunning masterpiece that is the auditorium, magnificent theatres and humbling churches, the city is a fantastic place for travelers in search of a bit of culture and history. The recently-implemented hop-on-hop-off tour bus is a great way to get around and make sure you don’t miss a single point of interest during your stay in the city. Although since the island’s capital is so small in comparison to most other capital cities, chances are everything you want to see will be within easy walking distance of your affordable hotel in Santa Cruz, Tenerife, anyway.

If you want to ditch the tourist look and experience Santa Cruz like a local, head for the Plaza de España where you can pull up a chair at one of the many cafes and enjoy a delicious Canarian coffee whilst entertaining yourself with some people watching. After filling up on caffeine, you can indulge in some retail therapy up and down the streets leading away from Plaza de España or take it easy in one of the city’s parks full of artwork created by local artists.
