Puerto de la Cruz PLAYA SAN TELMO Tenerife north – Santa Cruz de Tenerife
San Telmo beach, bordered by the newly tapered promenade, is located in Puerto de la Cruz, north of the island of Tenerife. It is one of the most popular coastal walks of the island thanks to its predisposition for the disabled, for the numerous shops and for its beautiful sea views. The walk begins at the intersection with Santo Domingo Street and ends at the Casino, where the Avenida Cristóbal Colón begins, which gives access to the Lago Martiánez International Tourist Complex. The beach, which was once a pier, is of black sand and is, in tradition, the bathing area of the municipality. Its marvelous natural pools have been awarded the Blue Flag. The length of the beach does not reach 20 meters and its width is about 15 meters. The name of this beach comes from the Hermitage of San Telmo (18th century).
