Chill Out in Santa Cruz

If culture and history are your thing, there's plenty in Santa Cruz-proper to keep you stimulated. Make a stop at the illuminating Natural History Museum or the Basilica de Candelaria shrine, which only dates back to 1959 but manages to feel older in decidedly modern Santa Cruz.

Hit the Beach

While most of Tenerife's best beaches are far outside the center of Santa Cruz, you have a couple of options a short taxi or bus ride away. The most popular is Las Teresitas, whose golden sands look particularly striking contrasted with the crystalline blue water that laps at them.

View of the volcanic landscape of El Teide National Park in Tenerife, Canary Islands

Tip Top of Tenerife

Take a taxi to the base station of El Teide, a volcano that's also the highest mountain peak in all of Spain. Ride the cable car to the top, where you can enjoy a beautiful panorama of Tenerife. Alternatively, head to wild beaches like Fanabe and Almaciga — the latter features unique black sand.

Three whole grilled fish with potatoes and salad on a white plate

Local Cuisine

Santa Cruz de Tenerife offers a mix of traditional Spanish food and local Canarian food. It's just as easy, for example, to find a restaurant that serves small-plate tapas and sweet sangria as it is to enjoy Sancocho, a bass filet served with boiled potatoes and spicy mojo sauce. Follow up a filling meal with a shot of Cobana, a banana liquor native to the Canary Islands.

An assortment of souvenir shells

Shopping

If you like bargaining, try your luck at Mercado Municipal Nuestra Senora de Africa, open every day until 2:30 p.m. Here, you'll find local handicrafts like ceramic dishware made from volcanic stone, as well as clothing and shoes at wholesale prices. Sunday afternoons, there's a flea market near Santa Cruz's main station.

INSIDER TIP

Tenerife looks small on the map, but the island's mountainous terrain and developing infrastructure can make journeys here longer than you might imagine, so plan accordingly.

DAY 10 - DOCKED

La Palma, Canary Islands

ARRIVES:
7:00 AM
DEPARTS:
6:00 PM
ADVENTURE IN THE

PALMA YOUR HAND

La Palma is a small and peaceful island with a slow, friendly pace of life. Also called La Isla Bonita — the Beautiful Island — it's the perfect place for outdoor adventure.

Pool Party

Find your way up to La Fajana on the north side of the island, and swim in the crystal clear waters of its three natural ocean pools. They're all situated next to each other and protected from the waves.

Salt extraction in La Palma, Canary Islands

Pass the Salt

Visit the salt fields at Las Salinas de Fuencaliente in the south, where sea water gathers in shallow ponds. The sun evaporates the water, and salt remains to be sold all over the island. Migrating birds rest in this area, declared an Official Site of Scientific Interest.

Various colors of raw silk thread

Take the Silk Road

Silk has been produced in La Palma since the 16th century, and the craft continues. Take a guided tour of the Silk Museum, and you'll see the traditional techniques, starting with caring for live silk worms and finishing with selling the items produced here in the gift shop.

Canary style potatoes served with sauce

Local Cuisine

La Palma celebrates the Spanish tradition of tapas, called enyesques here. Cruise to La Palma to try papas arrugadas, a dish made from potatoes boiled in saltwater until it evaporates, leaving a delicious crust. For a shareable feast, seek out sancocho canario — a whole fish served with sweet potatoes, the roasted grain gofio and the spicy sauce mojo picon, made with olive oil, cumin, hot peppers and vinegar.

A man rolling cigars

Shopping

Shop in Santa Cruz de La Palma, the island's capital and second largest city, which sits along the island's eastern coast. Here, colorful homes with flower-filled balconies sit alongside stores and markets on steep cobblestone streets. Cruise to the Canary Islands and pick up hand-crafted textiles, fine embroideries, traditionally made cheese, local jewelry and hand-made cigars.

INSIDER TIP

Bring your sneakers: The least developed Canary Island, La Palma is best seen on foot.

Palma De Mallorca, Spain

ARRIVES:
9:00 AM

Isle of Palms

Palma de Mallorca is the perfect place to immerse yourself in history and beauty. Go back in time to the 14th century at Bellver Castle, with its mix of Arab arches and Roman-inspired fortification. Catch a wave on the golden sands of El Arenal beach. Then, tuck into cocarrois, a local take on empanadas, or cool off in the quiet gardens and medieval ruins of the 10th-century Arab Baths.

Castles and Cathedrals

Palma de Mallorca's historic places look like something out of "Game of Thrones." Whether you traipse through the courtyard of 14th-century Bellver Castle or say your prayers inside Gothic Palma Cathedral, Palma de Mallorca can transport you back to medieval times. Your can also see the city's unique Arab influence dating back to the 10th-century Moorish conquest at spots like the Arab Baths.

People enjoying Cala Llombards beach in Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Get Your Beach On

It's no surprise that Palma de Mallorca is home to some of the world's best beaches — what's astonishing is just how clear blue the water is at Cala Llombards, or how the warm, golden sands of Playa El Arenal will make you wish you never had to leave. No wonder so many red and yellow umbrellas dot the sands here.

The Cuevas del Drach in Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Explore a Dragon's Lair

Head to Porto Cristo on the east side of the island, where you'll find the Cuevas del Drach — the dragon caves. While no actual dragons have been spotted here, the stalactites and stalagmites of this ancient underground cave make it easy to imagine. You can even take a violin-serenaded boat ride on the cave's underground lake during your cruise.

A bowl of tombet, a traditional vegetable dish

Local Cuisine

Mallorca is technically part of Spain, but Palma de Mallorca's cuisine is a world unto itself. Savor tombet, a vegetarian stew with sweet potatoes and carrots that's Mallorca's take on ratatouille. Cruise to Palma de Mallorca to sample the eclectic coca mallorquina, a kind of crunchy flatbread pizza with an olive oil-rich crust topped with roasted red peppers.

A straw bag market in Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Shopping

Palma's premier shopping is to be had in the Passeig de Born neighborhood. Shop here for upscale brands like Mulberry and Zara. Then, head to Jaume III and Sant Miquel streets for boutiques specializing in fine local goods: Choose a necklace or earrings made with world-famous Mallorcan pearls, try on a pair of handmaid Menorquina sandals, or marvel at handicrafts like colorful pottery and traditional straw bags.

INSIDER TIP

If you're more interested in ocean time than historic sites, book a boat tour to see the coastline of Mallorca from the sunlit waves.

DAY 14 - Arrival Day

Barcelona, Spain

ARRIVES:
6:00 AM

CROWN OF CATALONIA

Afternoons in Barcelona are best spent eating Spanish tapas in a cosy bar. Then take a Gaudí-inspired architecture crawl to see modernist wonders like Casa Milà, Casa Batlló, Park Güell and the awe-inspiring La Sagrada Família. Explore medieval dockyards at the Maritime Museum – or throw on an apron and learn the centuries-old art of Catalan cuisine in a chef-led cooking class.

La Sagrada Familia Interior Colorful

SKY HIGH DELIGHTS

Get an up-close glimpse of La Sagrada Família, a cathedral masterwork designed by celebrated Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. Marvel at its sky-piercing spires and then step inside to admire intricate mosaics, Montjuïc stone pillars and the Nativity façade. You can even climb to the tippy-top of the spires for panoramic city views.

Barceloneta Beach  at Sunset

SEAS THE DAY

With seven beaches spanning more than two miles of Mediterranean coastline, Barcelona’s harbour-front is known for some of the world’s best sun-seeking and on-the-sea adventures. Lounge along the shore, kayak deep blue waters – or charter a fishing trip for the chance to reel in tuna, swordfish or Mediterranean spearfish.

La Rambla Historic Buildings

IN THE MIX

Take a stroll along La Rambla’s pedestrian boulevard to experience the city’s pure essence. Souvenir shops, street artists, flower stalls, sidewalk cafes and Catalan folk sardana dancers set a lively scene. Its marvelous centerpiece, La Catedral, dates from the 1200s— and its tower delivers sweeping views of medieval Barcelona.

Couple Enjoying the Local Sparkling Cava Wine

LOCAL CUISINE

Barcelona has mastered the art of eating. Many restaurants serve up creative 'nueva cocina española', while waterfront spots dish out seafood paella and multi-course lunch menus include a glass of sparkling cava wine. For a taste of Catalan cooking, try pa amb tomàquet (tomato-topped bread). Or nibble on Spanish tapas (bite-sized appetisers) around the bar like a local, with house-made vermouth in hand.

Couple Strolling Through the Fresh Local Market

SHOPPING

You could spend hours checking out the markets of Barcelona for high-quality leatherwear, jewellery, old books and unique housewares. Passeig de Gràcia and Barcelona Shopping Line are two popular retail promenades – and the Gothic Quarter is home to dozens of family-owned shops that sell textiles, stationery, decorative ceramic tiles and earthenware kitchenware.
