Visited the palmetum on what started a cloudy day. So glad we ended up here. It was a lovely quiet day, nice gardens and great views. The city rubbish dump has been converted into a great attraction. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful palm garden. All kinds of palms and very green and well maintained botanical garden. Nice place to spend an afternoon and enjoy exotic palms near Parque maritimo and Auditorio.

The palmetum was a lovely and very informative place, great views and very well kept, teeming with wildlife, the only thing that prevents me giving this a 5 star is that all the information beyond the plants names and original location is in the guide...More

Be sure to check out the exhibit and film left to the ticket entrance first before starting your walk to the right of the ticket entrance. Best to go in a generally anti clockwise direction. The Palmetum has good viewing spots and seats. Signs are...More

A place which used to be the city dump at 1970's has gone through a total face wash and turned out to be a very beautiful garden. A 40m high hill is now a place where one can see examples of various palm trees around...More

We enjoyed this garden as it had such a variety of palm trees and they were grouped according to the area of the world which they came from. There were good views over the city and especially of the Opera House. The indoor display explained...More

Hi. We stayed in Costa Adeje,and buses to Santa Cruz are easy.Takes about an hour and cheap enough. Once you get to Santa Cruz terminal, it's 10 minutes walk along the seafront. Enjoy.
