The Canary Islands are some of Spain’s farthest-reaching territories, and make up the southernmost part of Europe. This archipelago is perfectly situated for a longer trip of exploration along southern Spain and even into Morocco. Of course, you can stick close to home in one of our Santa Úrsula vacation rentals—the town has plenty to keep you busy.
Santa Úrsula rests on the north coast of Tenerife, the largest of the seven Canary Islands. It’s also the most heavily populated with year-round residents, and tourists who come to enjoy its beautiful beaches, restaurants, and shopping. Our Santa Úrsula villa rentals are also situated near Corona Forestal Natural Park, an area of beautiful, rugged landscape.
If you want beaches and an easygoing scene, Santa Úrsula is the place for you. The nearby city of Puerto de la Cruz is a bustling hub with plenty of bars, restaurants, and discos. Make a day trip to savor the tastes of Spain, like paella de marisco, as you listen to live music, or gaze out onto the Atlantic Ocean—and be sure to grab a table outside, as there’s very little rainfall in sunny Santa Úrsula. For your dose of contemporary art and photography, check out the Tenerife Espacio de los Artes. Even the building is something to behold, and was designed by the architects behind London’s Tate Modern Museum.
For an outdoors adventure, the nearby Anaga Mountains offer rugged, volcanic scenery for hiking. If you’d rather appreciate this view from the car, the TF-12 road is a switchback-heavy route from La Laguna to San Andrés, offering beautiful mountain vistas. But for those feeling up to an adventure, Mount Teide (or Pico del Teide) is not only the highest point in the Canary Islands, but in all of Spain. Clocking in at an elevation of 12,000 feet, Mount Teide is a sight to behold, whether you’re admiring it from sea level or attempting to summit.
And, of course, there’s an abundance of beach access within reach when you book one of our Santa Úrsula vacation rentals. If you’re looking for sand and sun, with options for outdoors activity or relaxation, browse our collection today.
