Beach description

Las Teresitas is the most advertised beach of the island, it is located in northern part. A wide beach strip in a kilometer long and almost 100 meters deep, a calm even ocean, thanks to the bulk stone jetty that protects from storms, well-developed infrastructure - all this attracts vacationers to the beach. The beach season here begins in July and lasts until the end of October. The entry into the water is even, shallow, and the ocean bottom is very clean. For this reason, the beach is popular with locals and vacationers with children. Truly, some people say that sometimes the same pier becomes the reason that the water stagnates a little, causing an unpleasant marshy smell. The mass media periodically replete with reports that the beach is closed due to the unfavorable microbiological composition of the water. Although, thanks to this man-made bay, in the summer the ocean here is a couple of degrees warmer than in other places in the neighborhood.

You can get to the beach in 20 minutes from Santa Cruz by bus, cost 1.25 €, stop at San Andres. And most convenient way is a rented car, near there is an extended parking lot. Take the TF-1 highway to Santa Cruz, then take the right onto TF-4, following the signs for Avenida Maritima and Puerto, without turning anywhere, right to San Andres.

Loro Park is the largest zoo. It was once created as a bird sanctuary. And here there really is a whole scientific base where chicks are raised, fed, released into wildlife. This is a real medical center. Then penguins, huge gorillas, tigers and lions, monkeys and turtles were added here. Various fish and marine denizens, including sharks.
