Puerto de la Cruz
"Puerto de la Cruz - Nice beaches"
There are many many hotels in Puerto de la Cruz, but they aren't huge and there is still an old part of town with colonial houses.
The beaches are nice and the sand is of course black lava-sand.
"Teide - can be seen from all over the city"
The massive vulcano in the middle of the island, can be seen from all over the city.
This picture shows how the climate changes dramaticly on the island, from the warm subtropical climate at the beaches to the cold snowy top.
Every day the oceans wawes came rolling in and smashed into the shores and therefore many places are protected by hue rocks.
The last day we really got a reminder that the Canary islands are situated in the middle of a huge ocean, when the wawes got really big and even overfloated the promenade and some streets close to the harbour.
Everywhere we went people were looking at the ocean as it was so fantastic to watch, even though it made a huge noice. Eventually the police came and secured some of the promenade, some streets leading down to the harbour and some of the beach, as the wawes washed up.
