Santa Ursula on the north coast of Tenerife, just over a mile west of Puerto de la Cruz, is not your typical Tenerife holiday destination. This functioning Canarian town isn't a holiday resort. Far from it. Santa Ursula is a functioning - albeit peaceful - Tenerife town. Don't expect manic nights or bustling tourist attractions. The area is actually preferred as a base for hiking and walking holidays with routes that take in all the beauty of Mount Teide National Park and the Orotava Valley.

The surrounding greenery of Santa Ursula is hiker’s heaven, as the designated pathways provide a stretch of adventure and exercise and unforgettable views of the town. The verdant hillsides stretch to the lip of the beach, supplying a welcoming green backdrop to the golden sand and turquoise sea. Watch the sun go down and wander across the old ports in the evening where you can grab some authentic cuisine and a glass of local red. Whatever’s on the agenda, the crystal clear skies are to be taken advantage of on Santa Ursula holidays.

If you’re a fan of festivals Tenerife is the right resort for you. Summer celebrations include the Fiestas de San Pedro and the Festival of San Juan, both consisting of parades and conveying the playful and creative side of Spain. Music festivals and arts and craft fairs are also dotted around the island throughout the year, presenting local talent that makes this area of Spain so unique. Culture vultures should take the short trip across the island to Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where you can marvel at architectural wonders such as the Auditorio de Tenerife, Basilica of Candelaria and Iglesia de la Concepción. If after a day of visiting sites you fancy something a little lively, head to Veronicas Strip in Playa de las Americas, where the tourists contribute to a colourful atmosphere never short of a bit of excess.



The region of Santa Ursula actually has many miles of beaches, but few beaches. How is that possible? Well. The northern Tenerife coast is predominately formed of high cliffs which make most of the coast inaccessible unless you want to hop on a boat.

Ancon Beach, which is located between Santa Ursula and La Orotava, is an example of this. It's tricky to reach the beach, but this is perfect if you want to have somewhere secluded and peaceful to lay down your towel.

If you're more keen on bustling beaches with a typical tourist strip and plenty of facilities, Puerto de la Cruz is home to the immensely popular Playa Jardin. Playa Jardin is arguably one of the best beaches on the north coast, but expect it to be busy in the peak season. Worth a visit if beach days are your ba, though.
