Isle of Tenerife

Vacation in San Juan de la Rambla

San Juan de la Rambla, where time stands still...

Time seems to have stood still in the small fishing town of San Juan de la Rambla just north of the resort of Puerto de la Cruz.

Most tourists simply drive past it on their way to Icod de los Vinos.

But it is worth making a small detour to take in historic centre with its old buildings and to enjoy the fine promenade at the adjacent beach of Las Aguas, which boasts a fine sea swimming pool, some excellent fish restaurants and a small pebbly beach.

Banana plantations abound in the fields around the town, which is the heart of one of the smallest municipalities on the island.

Wine production has long been important to the economy of the town, which forms part of the Denominacíon de Origen of Ycoden-Daute-Isora region.

Back in the 17th century locally-produced Malvasia wine graced the finest tables in Europe.
