Santa Cruz de Tenerife Cruise Port
  • Ferry and Cruise Terminal

    Vessels dock at the Port of Santa Cruz, which is located within close distance of the city centre.

    Ships dock on the very long pier located approx. 1km from town. It’s possible to walk to the pier but usually a shuttle bus is available between the cruise terminal and the town (Plaza de Espana). From your hotel you can easily get to the harbour by metered taxi.

  • Cruises to and from the Canary Islands

    Itineraries sailing out of Santa Cruz de Tenerife will take you around the Canary Islands, to other parts of Europe or even transatlantic to Barbados or Buenos Aires in Argentina.

    Main cruiselines operating from the port are Fred Olsen, Thomson Cruises and Swan Hellenic.

    The island of Tenerife is also a very popular stop on various cruises departing from the UK. Some voyages depart from either Southampton (see our hotels), Newcastle UK or even the city of Liverpool.

  • Why choose hotels in Santa Cruz?

    The ferry and cruise ship terminal welcomes passengers to the island daily and it is one of the busiest transit locations in the country.

    Tenerife is part of Spain, and it is the largest of the Canary Islands. Its position in the Atlantic Ocean close to the south west coast of Morocco makes it easily accessible by sea, and there is also a regular direct ferry from the Spanish city of Cadiz.

    Visitors will be delighted to find hotels within walking distance of the ferry terminal, while those who want to explore further afield can make Santa Cruz their base thanks to terrific deals on rooms and apartments.

    Deals can be found in the summer peak season months as well as later in the year, and of course its exceptional mild climate and 365 days of sunshine makes Tenerife an inspired choice at any time.

  • Stay within budget during your trip

    If you plan to enjoy a cruise followed by a stay in the port, you’ll want to ensure that you budget for every eventuality.

    Santa Cruz has lots of family friendly restaurants to choose from, as well as deals on accommodation that will save you money. Saving on the cost of hotels allows you to get more from your stay, and luxury 5 star residences and budget apartments all have great offers throughout the year.

    It’s worth looking out for deals on the cost of your cruise as well as for accommodation, and you might want to consider choosing a holiday home close to the terminal at less busy times.

    The busiest times are the peak season and school holidays, as well as Christmas and New Year with more passengers alighting at the terminal for stays in Santa Cruz.

    Be flexible, and look around for hotels that have all you want at the right price.

    The closest beach to the port is Playa de la Teresitas, about 20 minutes away by bus.
