Auditorio de Tenerife. This auditorium was built in 2003 and was designed by Santiago Calatrava, an award-winning architect from Valencia.

The province of Tenerife is known for its collection of beaches and Santa Cruz is no stranger to these recreational sites. Apart from this, tourists can also take advantage of the beautiful parks included in the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Sights.

Parque Rural de Anaga. This natural park is located near Macizo de Anaga (one of the sights in Santa Cruz) and was classified in 1994. While there, tourists can also visit the famous Macizo de Anaga.

Las Gaviotas. This small beach is known for its black sand and it is very famous with the young visitors and the naturalists. Near this beach is another one called the Playa Chica. Las Gaviotas serve English food.

Las Teresitas. If Las Gaviotas is known as a black-sand beach, Las Teresitas is known as the only white sand beach in the whole province of Tenerife. Truth is, this site is an artificial beach whose sand was shipped from the Sahara desert. Big waves are not a problem for those who are not into them, so children will find this place enjoyable.
