Meridiano Centre, Santa Cruz de tenerife
Covid-19 Update (Aug 2020): Meridiano Centre is open for business and shoppers are flocking back. Every shop has sanitizing gel to use as you walk in, some have guards to take your temperature, and there are limits to the number of people that can be inside a shop at any one time, so some may have a queue outside. Many shops do not allow you to try clothes on, though some, like Primark do, at least this was allowed the last time we visited. Primark, which always has a long queue has a new way of handling this to maintain social distancing. Instead of a bunched up queue near the cash desks, people line up at 2 metre internals around the internal perimeter of the shop. That makes the queue looks much bigger than it is.
This is where you will find Tenerife’s only (to date) Primark, as well as many other high street fashion favourites like Zara, Stradivarius, Bershka and Pull & Bear. There is also a C&A, a large Carrefour supermarket, beauty shops, shoe shops and every other kind of shop you can shake a stick at.
Alain Afflelou, an optician on the main floor is worth checking out if you need new specs as they often have offers on – for example, Tchin Tchin Sol, an offer that lets you walk away with a new pair of sunglasses for only €1 when you buy a pair of glasses.
On the top level there is a cinema and a food court where you can enjoy an all you can eat Asian buffet, Tony Romas ribs and many other choices including 100 Montaditos. If you are a parent in Tenerife with hungry kids and a budget – try this place. Kids love the variety and it is cheap as chips!
If you are heading to Meridian Centre from the south, the 110 and 111 bus lines will get you here. The 110 will get you here considerably faster as it is the direct line. You can pick up both from either the bus station in Costa Adeje or the one at Los Cristianos opposite Valdes Centre. Find more Tenerife bus information here.
For those coming by car, Meridiano Centre has free basement parking though try to get there by 10ish on a Saturday or you’ll be playing musical chairs with half a dozen other cars trying to nab a parking spot.
