Playa Jardín

Nearly one kilometre of the coast in Puerto de la Cruz has been recently regenerated, from the Castle of San Felipe to Punta Brava district. For this purpose, they have used 200.000 cubic metres of sand extracted form the surrounding sea beds.
The beach shielded by a half submerged breakwater, consits of a 17.000 m2 landscape area.
Location: Puerto de la Cruz

The public complex of Costa Martiánez, pride of Puerto de la Cruz, is one of the most admired examples of coastal transformation. A reputable technical team, headed by the well-known artist born in Lanzarote César Manrique, created this exceptional piece of work adapted to the traditional Canary architecture and complemendted it with original sculptures and some vegetable elements from the autochthonous flora.
Its artificial pond, consisting of 27.000 m3 of sea water, highlights the rest of the pools, four for adults and three for children use, all of them show an original layout and beauty.
