Playa Jardin with floor plan, as not to get lost

First of all, lets make clear that Playa Jardin has certainly the most interesting and action packed seashores of all Canary Island beaches. Why? There are always events at its Castillo San Felipe, there are sports tournaments, Fiesta San Juan concerts and bonfires and private beach parties with good food, music and dance like one by the  Lion's Club on September 07, 2019.

Mind even the Reyes Magos who start the Christmas Parade from there. The future Parque Maritimo that's attached to it has already become a magnet of entertainment.

Now to its amazing  lay-out which is so big and varied that it helps to have a design of its amenities and  different beach sites with their own names.

Playa Jardin the marvelous designer garden beach is huge and loaded with fabulous nooks besides its 17000 square meters of tropical park, while its three different seasides stretch over 1km. 

The following graphic map with landscaping design is there to help you to find your way around.

 This floor plan indicates all resources of its Puerto de la Cruz beaches at the town end by Loro Park. That way you shall lose less time on your  holiday in Tenerife Spain.

Multi option terrace restaurant on the Tenerife Garden beach.

The seaside promenade is drawn with a fine line in the plan.

By the way, just over the road is the popular Bahia Parque Fitness Center.

Hotel Turquesa a family hotel is closest to this Atlantic ocean resort.

Below admire the Puerto de la Cruz Garden beach bay with a snow capped Mount Teide in the background.

The graphic shows all three beaches well, contrary to the photo. There,  only Playa San Felipe and Playa Charcón Surf beach are visible to the naked eye.

The long Playa Punta Brava at the far end which stops by the fishing village of the same name is behind small rocky islands.

Also, various terrains and beach garden terraces were represented with different, vibrant colors. Mind that the drawings were the brain child of landscape design ideas by César Manrique who was one of most famous ecological landscape designers and architects.

Where are the swimmers?

This was on a warm and sunny day on February 22, 2016. However, both the red and the SOS flag were up to indicate very bad currents. Therefore, nobody was allowed in the ocean. Tourists usually bath there in winter with a water temperature of 18 degrees Celsius. Surfers enter with whet-suits in winter.

Why would people choose this seashore when there are top Medano beaches ? Playa Jardin is fine for surf learners for example from the nearby European University of La Orotava, from the Spanish Language Schools Fu or Don Quichote in Puerto de la Cruz or tourism schools in town.

Windsurfing Playa Jardin in September

The following photo hasn't been zoomed in but is to show the exact spot only.

I have seen windsurfing many times at this Puerto beach.

La Marea Surfschool (they have a dotcom  website by that name) was testing the waves.

One guy was really awesome with his stunts.

This shows you that a skilled surfer is good everywhere.

Playa Chica the least known beach of Playa Jardin Tenerife beaches

In fact, this insider beach that is also used for launching fishing boats of Punta Brava is not marked on the map above.

Ocean currents in this tiny sandy shore are hardly heard of. You also get there via Calle Dacil of Punta Brava. Mind several flights of stairs, hence no wheelchair access...
