Santa Cruz de Tenerife is made up of 200,000 inhabitants, plus visitors, that divide geographically into five neighborhoods.
Zona Anaga is made of harbors, industry, and history. Expect to see much real estate sprawl in this area in coming years, as well as an economic and tourist boom as beaches are being beautified and construction gets more fully underway on multiple leisure centers and a hotel.
The Central Zone, located between the Anagan mountains and the Saints cliff, is the borough with the longest and richest heritage, containing the sites of the city’s initial settlements. This is also a region of significant urbanization and hotels.
The Health Zone contains its own vibrancy, both in business and residence, and Zona Ofra has great population density countered by wide avenues and tree-lined streets.
The Southwestern Zone contains some interesting agricultural lands.
