Holidays to Puerto de Santiago (commonly called Puerto Santiago) will be relaxed and low-key. This resort town isn’t as hustling and bustling as other tourist spots in Tenerife, instead you’ll find quaint beachfront hotels, rustic towns and rural hiking trails.
Puerto de Santiago is located on a hilly terrain which provides stunning views of the ocean and many hiking opportunities – ideal for nature lovers. Head north to Los Gigantes - a resort town known for its incredible natural beauty – just a 20-minute walk away for a great day out; the resort gets its name from the stunning, gigantic, hills it is surrounded by. Similarly, head to neighbouring resort Playa de Arena during your Puerto de Santiago holidays, located to the south of the resort, offering a gorgeous Blue Flag Beach, volcanic-inspired walks in nearby popular Teide National Park and trips to the capital, Santa Cruz.
With a vast history of fishing and maritime exploration, there are many old buildings and heritage sights to see in the area which will make for a very cultural holiday indeed. Book a guided tour or speak to the local merchants for stories on the town’s long history. Beautiful sunsets over the hills and lazy days on the beach await on Puerto de Santiago holidays, fabulous for groups, couples and families.
